    Xbox - Monitor no sound?

    I have connected my monitor to xbox with a Dvi-hdmi cable, and I only get video output, no sound output? I've tried all different combinations even sawing off the plastic bit on the xbox cable and plugging it in but the HDMI cable seems to cancel it out..

    No idea what to do, all help will be useful and appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Err, what?

    Although DVI can carry audio it's highly likely that A.) the HDMI > DVI doesn't support it and B.) the 360 doesn't support audio via DVI.

    You'll have to get one of the audio breakout boxes that came with the official HDMI kit which allows you to wire up some analog inputs: http://image.made-in-china.com/2f0j0...YS-X3075B-.jpg

    Other than that, most 360 VGA cables have the audio cables separate too so if you can, it might be less hassle just to use one of them.

    Lastly, your monitor does have speakers, right?
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    A DVI-HDMI adapter lets you only get the video output, you are on the right track though.
    What is your setup like? The mod you did on the xbox cable should work fine, you just connect the red and white audio cables, sometimes with a 3.5mm adapter, to a set of speakers.

    Quick youtube search came up with plenty of tutorials but heres a link to one of them:
