Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

HDTV Problem I've recently purchased what I thought was a VGA component cable for my Xbox 360. Only thing is, It won't work for me. I have tried to alter my Hi Def settings on the dashboard, but it only seems to register that I have a HD cable wired in when I have the first switch set over to TV. When I've clicked Hi Def the dashboard doesn't even acknowledge that it's plugged in. Then, if I flick the second switch that alternates it between Av and Comp, The screen flickers and refuses to work at all. I got a core Xbox 360 so I had to buy a HDTV cable seperately. I got one cheap. But evidently it's cheap for a reason. As it won't work. The cable I got is a Gamexpert Component & S-Video AV Cable (GS-3603). And the Tv I'm trying to run Hi Definition off is a Beko 32" WLA520 HD. I'd like to know if there's anything I'm doing wrong. I'm hoping it's just an official cable I need. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

There shouldnt be a problem with the cable, if you use the component leads then you will not need to use the s video cable for video incase that is what you are doing, component only uses 5 connectors and the switch should be set at HDTV not tv and the tv set at component Use the following colours into your tv:- Green, Blue, Red and the audio red and white, you do not need the yellow or the s video plugs. Then select the 1080i when in the component setings on your tv and do the same in the dashboard settings

No input signal VGA/Xbox


You are doing nothing wrong. The best thing to do, which you are doing, is to eliminate possible problems. Try a different cable, monitor etc until you narrow the problem down to a single component.

I am trying to run pip with x box in the pip and regular comp on main screen but it dosent work the xbox is hi def cables


What inputs are you actually using? If you use VGA as the main display, the PIP feature will work with DVI, 480i (SD) Component Video, S-Video, or Composite video. If you use DVI for the computer's input to the TV, the Component video PIP doesn't have the 480i limit.

Thus if you have VGA from the computer, Hi-def from the X-box isn't going to work. Note: The component video can not be the main screen with VGA input in PIP.

I hope this helps.

When i turned my tv on to play my xbox 360 with component cables, my tv says ''not supported''?


Some after arket component cables only support high def, if your tv is standard def it won't work. I'm not sure if this is your problem, but it's worth looking into.

What cables do I need to connect my toshiba satellite m55 laptop to my hi def tv?


This really depends on the connectsionon your hi def TV. The laptop doesn't have an HDMI port (these ports carry sound and video in one cable), but it does have a VGA out port as well as a s-video out.

You can connect an s-video cable from your laptop to your hi-def TV, if the TV has an s-video input port.

You can also purchase a VGA to Component converter if your hi-def TV has component inputs, these are the Red, Green, Blue inputs. Amazon sells these, here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/Premium-VGA-Component-Cable-Black/dp/B000RJLSZU

If you have a DVI input you can purchase a VGA to DVI converter as well. These are very inexpensive and you can find a wide selection on Amazon, here: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=vga+to+dvi

Finally, you can also purchase a VGA to HDMI converter. This would be the most expensive option, but you can use this box to put both sound and video from the laptop onto the HDMI cable. YOu would need both the converter and cable for this to work. Converter is here: http://www.amazon.com/VGA-Audio-HDMI-Converter-Adapter/dp/B0015YWV1G/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1263068538&sr=1-3
Cable is here: http://www.amazon.com/HDMI-meter-foot-cable-1080P/dp/B0002L5R78/ref=pd_bxgy_e_img_b
