I have a Xbox 360 and everything is fine. i had an HD cable, but i can't find it. However i tried the red, green, blue cables and the picture is really good...but one thing, there's no sound to it. I don't know what is wrong, nor do i know how i would fix this. So far i have been using the yellow, red, and white cables. So i want to know what i could do to fix this?

Re: picture is fine, but the sound won't work
Are the yellow, red & white cables RCA phono plugs?
Yellow = Video
Red = Right Audio
White = Left Audio (mono)
The red, blue & green cables are for picture only and don't include sound. Have you tried using the red, blue & green for the picture and using the other cable, red & white for just the sound? Don't use the yellow.

Plug in the Yellow A/V connection to your TV's Video input. or if you have the HD cable you have to have the Green, Blue, Red, pluged in to get video, and then the White and Red for the Audio. (HD cable will not work at all on a A/V input on a TV.) HD cables have 2 red plugs, 1 is for audio, and the other is for video, they should be labeled to tell you what one is what, but if they are not, if you flaten the cords, the Audo White plug will separate the 2 reds, and the one that is between the White and either the Green or Blue plug is the other video.
If thats not it, I couldnt tell you, unless you have a bad connection on the back of your 360, or just a bad xbox.
You say the component video is no good? Well this usually happens when it is wired up incorrectly, Ensure you have the right colors in the right jacks at each end, it is real easy to get mixed up... make sure Red goes to Red, Blue to Blue and Green to green, all alongside each other, NO ALSO using Component you MUST also run 2 more cables for the Audio, they are Red & White NOT the Red from the "Other" Video input, BUT the AV Red & White jacks, beside each other on the units. So all in all there are 5 cables taking the Video, 3 R, G, B. + The Audio, R & W.
If your TV is HD, you should definitely be connecting the component video cables (green, blue and red) from the 360 to the TV (the 321 will not do video pass-thru from component cables).
-Make sure you have a picture at this point. (TV switched to whichever input you connect the 360 to)
You can get an RCA extension cable for the audio portion (red and white) to connect to the 321 for audio. You could also connect an optical audio cable to the 321. An optical cable must be assigned from the system menu to work..
Let me know if this helps.
I have a Vizio 37' tv with an Xbox 360 and it works fine. I am a Cable repair tech, hook up the xbox using the composit cable first RCA these are the red white and yellow cable to a non high def input on the tv, if that works check the settings in the xbox, there is a screen that will allow or enable HD quality pictures. Also check the Xbox cable itself. at the Y there is a small swiitch that goes from componet to composit you can only get HD if you use the Red Blue Green cables, then make sure you have the TV input set to that input other wise you will have only a blue screen. If that does not work, Hell, call the cable company if you are a customer, they should send someone out to show you how to connect it, and they might not even charge you, we don't, but I work for a smaller company, not ComCast or Cox, If you want to email me you can email@example.com, good luck
