You can go to Wal-Mart or any major electronics store and buy a splitter/selecter for your different devices.

Basically, the unit will allow you to connect a few input devices (xbox, ps3, whatever) into one HD connection on an HDTV. You will be able to select which device uses the HD connection to the tv through a switch.

I hope you find the item :-) A Competent electronics salesman should be able to help you out just fine!

Check and recheck and triple check the av/hd cables. If you want to help isolate, try hooking up your xbox 360 to another tv and doesn't matter if it is hdtv or standard to test out. That method will give your answer quick to help isolate the problem. If you have hdtv make sure your adapter has the switch set for hdtv and not standard and then go in the xbox 360 dashboard system settings and see if it shows up for display. Good luck!!!

You have to use the regular red and white cords(not the yellow) and u have to use all 3 hd cords. If ur tv doesnt have a place to put the cords in, then it isnt HD. Also on the plug connecting to the 360, there is a switch that has HD and regular, switch it to HD. hope this helped.
