Xbox 360 And Monitor

Post by Umz93 »

I want to connect my xbox 360 to my computer monitor through the vga hd cable. However I was wondering how do I output sound from my xbox 360 as on the cable there are 2 component cables for tv.

The VGA cables that are offical like mine have sound output (white and red) built into them and come with an adapter to turn it into a 3.5mm jack to use your computers line in if you need to.

It supports any resolution up to 1080p which is 1920x1080 I beleive. I think the smallest is 640x480 although it may be diffrent.

Ok cool. Since the microsoft vga cable is pretty expensive here in Australia I was wondering whether it is the same package in the third party component cables like madcatz or futretronics

Should be but you will prob need your own white + red to 3.5mm jack if applicable.

If you get the official MS VGA kit, it comes with RCA to 3.5mm jack adaptor.
