Hi there

As far as I'm aware the only way to get hd with the older boxes that don't have hdmi socket is through component unfortunately.

Microsoft have indeed pulled a fast one with this and cunningly released the elite for more profit.

I think the only difference betwen component and hdmi is that hdmi has built in audio in one wire where as with component you require seperate audio.

In short, No. HD only via component.

Hope this is of help

Are you trying to use HD? Component cables or HDMI? Component cables limit you to 720p. It's possible that your old TV doesn't support 720p or there is something wrong with the jacks. What sort of connections do you have?

Which wires doi use to connect up my xbox with my


In order to connect your Laptop with Xbox 360, you will have to use the ethernet cable that came along with the Xbox 360,

For connecting the Xbox 360 to TV you would be having a HD AV cable if you have a Xbox 360 Pro model, you would have to insert one part of this cable with 3 colored wires red,blue and green to your composite video port behind your tv with similar color coding, and on the Xbox 360 HD AV cable you have an option to choose either TV or HD video output based on your TV make, also this cable has two more wires red and white meant for audio connectivity which would go to audio port behind TV with same color code ports

If you have got a normal AV cable with Xbox 360 then it would be a a wire with one single yellow colored wire for video and two wires Red and White for audio

You need to set the monitor up. I have a 42" LCD TV, and there is a menu where you can set the aspect ratio to 'Auto', 'Full Screen', or "4:3". I had a similar issue with my DVD player. I'm sure if you go through your monitor setup menu, you should be able to solve this problem.

X box looks like it starts up but the screen will stay blank


Check the status of the "HD" switch on the side of the video connector, nearest to the Xbox. I have the same non-HDMI Xbox. If I have it hooked up via component to a non-HD TV, and the switch is on "HD", it will show no video.

No picture or sound on the tv


where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!

When i connect my 360 to my tv i only get sound and a flashing screen. why?


Maybe it's a bad video port on your TV. Try hooking it up on another video port on the TV. I've had this same problem because the front video port on my TV was bad. I hooked it up in the back port of the TV and it worked.
