    I just got a Viewsonic hdtv. My Xbox 360 works fine using the AV cables, but when I try to use the components for HDTV it says no signal. The TV is also being used for my computer monitor, which I'm running a DVI/HDMI cable - it works fine. All connections work fine except the HD component connection between the xbox and tv. I've tried all things - checked my connections, switched from TV to HDTV on the xbox plug, checked my HDTV settings (it is set to 480p). Actually the xbox does not appear to let me change those settings because it says I've got the xbox set to "TV", but then I can't set the plug to HDTV and then SEE anything on the screen to adjust settings. You know what I mean? I don't think this is an xbox cable problem cause I switched out my cable/brick with a friend's and the same thing happened. I've tried this with and without a game in the drive, turning tv off, xbox off, on, all cominations. Any ideas?? I can use the AV non-HDTV connection like I've always used, but I bought this with the intention of being able to use my xbox with HD quality. Thanks!!

Thanks for the help. After trying all the things mentioned - switching to HDTV, TV settings, standing on my head, etc.... it turned out to be that my cable was - after all - no good. I got yet another new cable and it has worked perfectly. I guess my friend's HD cable was no good too. Thanks for the input. I have learned alot from it, and hopefully I can help someone else when they have a similar problem.

Theres a switch on the AV cable right where it plugs in. Pull the cable out and switching it from HDTV to TV.

We hooked it up and have no sound

From the Console Settings screen in the System area of the Xbox Dashboard, you can configure the video output of your Xbox 360 console for a widescreen, high-definition TV, determine your audio options, and check your console's serial number and Xbox Dashboard version.
Go to correct section for ... Audio

Change your audio output settings for games from this screen. These audio settings do not affect DVD movie playback. For DVD audio settings, refer to an individual DVD movie's setup screen.

Settings consist of:

  • Analog Output Settings: choose Mono to merge the left and right audio signals so that you can hear all sound through a connection to a monaural TV or monitor; choose Dolby Pro Logic II to listen in normal stereo (no audio surround receiver required) or to listen to Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Pro Logic II soundtracks from compatible games or other media.

    Dolby Pro Logic consists of four channels of audio: front left/center/right and a monaural surround channel that is mirrored in each of your rear left/right speakers. Dolby Pro Logic II uses digital signal processing to generate 5.0 audio (front left/center/right, rear left/right) from any stereo (left/right) programming, whether from movies, music, or games. Unlike movies and music, however, games are specially encoded with Dolby Pro Logic II decoding in mind.

    To listen in either Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound, you must connect your cable's left/right (white/red) RCA connectors to a compatible surround receiver. For more information, see our connection page for the cable you're using:
  • Digital Output Settings: configure this setting only if you'll be using the Toslink optical digital-audio output from a compatible Xbox 360 AV cable (optical digital-audio cable sold separately):

    The default digital-audio setting is Dolby Digital 5.1. If this is your preference, you do not have to make a selection from this screen.

Xbox 360 turns on, but nothing shows on the screen

If the person that you bought it from on E-Bay had an HD Television. Then the Xbox console is set into HD from the Display options. If your TV is not HD, then It will not display. It can also be the other way around, if His TV is standard and yours is HD. Also try looking at the RCA's(The Part that plugs into the 360) And you will see a slider. Switch the slider, then turn it on. Tell me if that works, if Not, tell me and I will tell you what to press on your 360 controller to set the other menu. Hope this helps.

Xbox 360 - While setting up in menu the TV went black and msg. No Sync. Signal

First, make sure you select either TV or HDTV selector on the Audio Video Cable that came with the XBOX. Second, if you chose TV plug the Audio/Video Cable connectot that are red, white , and yellow in color to your TV. Now see if you can see the Start up on the XBOX360.
If you still dont get anything, try plugging it on another television and see if that fixes your problem.
