Are you making sure to change the input settings on your TV/Home Theater System? You may have to instruct the receiving device to use the HDMI input.

Also, are you have to make sure that the settings in the XBOX are set to use the HDMI output instead.

I honestly don't own an X360 so I couldn't tell you for sure. This is a general principle one must keep in mind when using electronics in general, really.

But I did take some time to track down an instructional overview of using an HDMI connection. It's actually on MS's XBOX site. Perhaps this will help you?

Click HERE to see this site.

Also there has been the occasional report of the HDMI cable coming with the XBOX 360 Elite being nonfunctional. You may consider testing with a different HDMI cable.

Remember to make sure you are checking the OUTPUT on the X360...and the INPUTS on your HDTV. Or your Home Theater system...if that's where you're connecting it. Remember that you may need a second HDMI cable to go FROM your home theater system to your HDTV if that is the case.

Let us know what happens!

Cant get sound to play through speakers? proper way to hook up?


Do you mean HDMI from Monster, if you do ensure that the cable is connected securely to the correct port. HDMI cables rely on both the devices for sending and receiving. Nothing will happen until both devices send the opposite signal. Hope it works for you!

Here is the manual:

When using the HDMI connections you may have to tell the DVD to output to that port.  Also you may have to connect additional sound cables from the DVD output to the TV.

Have a HT-X810 Samsung soundbar but cannot get any signal to the TV from the HDMI for playing DVD's. Works ok with scart but nothing out of the HDMI. Second unit this has happened on - am I doing something...


Dear rayoneill,
I just got an HT-X810 and hooked it up to my TV and had the same problem. I suggest that you ensure that you've selected the proper device input on your TV. My TV has a couple HDMI ports, in addition to a host of other connection choices, and I found that I was selecting the wrong HDMI input for viewing a dvd. Alternatively, when I was looking for an HDMI cable to hook up my unit I came across many chats/discussions/reviews that noted the properties of HDMI cables. The consensus among the discussants was that an HDMI cable either works or it doesn't - meaning that if there is a problem with the cable, you don't get a degraded image and sound you get nothing. Things that may lead to this include a loose connection or perhaps, and there was some disagreement among commentators on this, a poorly manufactured HDMI cable. Many claimed that due to the nature of digital signal transmissions, all HDMI cables are created equal so quality doesn't matter. However, when I was reading product reviews for cables available on amazon.com, many people were very critical of the cheap cables' performance. At the same time, most everyone seemed to agree that expensive 'Monster' cables were a waste of money. I settled on a $10 HDMI cable and haven't had any problems.
Good Luck, Justin
