    my 360 works fine on the bedroom tv with monster hdmi, but no sound on the living room tv with the supplied microsoft hdmi.

    Microsoft is aware of the problem. Occurs via HDMI. Component cables should work until the fix comes out. Many reports are people using Vizio TV's (like me).

    I know my hdmi cable is good because I can hook my friend's 360 to it and their console gets sound, but mine still does not.

    I just switched TV's and I plugged in my xbox 360. It has no sound but the picture is fine. I'm using the HDMI cable because I can't find the one that connects with the jacks. If I plug it into my other TV which is not very old, it works fine. We tried a DVD player on the TV and there was sound. Ive fiddled with everything that has to do with sound in the menu. Help?

    I just swapped from an old 360 to a newer one with HDMI (not an elite) and have connected via HDMI but have an amazing picture with no sound.
    Connecting my blu ray laptop to the TV works fine having changed the sound output of the laptop to HDMI, is there a similar fix on the Xbox that I have missed??

I'm almost positive the problem is the audio cable. If everything else is working fine, you'll need to replace the audio/video cables. I've had that problem and I just bought the new cables and it worked like a beaut!
Still need help? Let me know!

Surround sound not working properly

this isnt a solution to your problem but i have a suggestion. I see this problem has been posted a couple days now and i think that because your problem looks like it involves more stereo equipment rather than the xbox 360 console. i think you would get a better answer actually a soltuion if you posted this in the stereo section.

Xbox 360 has sound but no picture on HD setting

Is the tv rated for HD? if its not the inputs will be at a wrong voltage and will create that snow like effect.

Is the TV you normally game on HD?

Xbox 360 controller for windows

I also registered to post the solution. This is actually a very easy fix.

Goto > Start > Control Panel
Open > Sounds and Audio Devices
Goto > "Audio" Tab
Change > "Default Device" back to your sound card rather than the x-box controller.
Press > "OK"

When you plug in the x-box controller it makes itself the default audio playback because it has a headphone jack on it.

The problem is probably that you have put the cords in the wrong places or have used the wrong cords
