Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I bought a generic hdmi cable hooked it up and nothing
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?

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!
