Connect Xbox 360 To Pc Monitor Through Composite

Is it possible to connect my xbox 360 to my pc monitor through my pc then to my monitor? My pc has front composite and audio (l+r) in ports and i was wondering if i could connect my xbox 360 to these and then get image on my monitor. Answer:- why bother with composite? Composite is the worst possible connection. The image quality for composite is absolute garbage. Fuzzy, blurry low-definition crap. You can connect your xbox 360 directly to your computer monitor, using the purpose-built microsoft xbox hd av vga cable, and it gives you up to 1080p high definition (if the monitor can go up that high). You do have to buy the hdav vga cable separately though: http://www.Xbox.com/en-us/hardware/splash/x/xbox360vgahdcable/

Vga Monitor For Dvi Port

I have a dell e177fp monitor that i want to set up as a second monitor. I already have another monitor using the only vga port on my system. Now there is a dvi port in my system also which could be used to connect a second monitor. Unfortunately, the e177fp monitor doesn't have a dvi port (neither does the other monitor). My question is, if i use a vga to dvi adapter to connect the e177fp to the dvi port, will this work?

Monitor Won't Detect Vga, But Works Fine With Dvi

It's a hp w1707 if that helps. Today i'm getting some hdmi cables to hook my ps3 up to my monitor since all i have is a sdtv and can't afford to buy a hdtv. To make things easier on myself, i decided to go drag out my vga cables and hook that up to my computer, and hook my ps3 up to the dvi port so all i'd have to do is just switch the input back and fourth. That's when i ran into a problem. If i plug my vga cables in, it will not detect the display, but the second i plug the dvi into my video card (hd4870 1gig) it's fine again. I'm at a loss, as i said i just wanted to keep both plugged in and just switch between them, so obviously i've already tried switching input modes. I've tried restarting, i've tried setting my card to auto-detect displays (even though i know that's not the issue) i've tried setting my video card to force detection. I've tried having the screen auto adjust. None of it worked. The weird thing is the different results i get depending on the combo of buttons i push on the monitor and the cable(s) hooked up to the monitor itself. If both are unplugged from my comp, but plugged into my monitor, the screen will say no input detected. If both are connected and dvi is plugged in to my computer, it will work fine. If both are plugged into the monitor but vga in computer, it will say auto adjusting please wait, then will only have my background on the screen (no icons no mouse, and if i crtl atl and del the screen goes black) if only the vga is plugged into the monitor, it will say check video connections, if vga only is plugged into both the monitor and computer, it will go to sleep almost instantly.

Dvi Or Hdmi To Connect Computer To Monitor

Should i use dvi or hdmi to connect my computer to my monitor? My screen resolution is 1920x1200 and my monitor has inputs for both dvi and hdmi. I currently have it hooked up using a dvi cable because i don't have an hdmi cable. Would i benefit in any way by switching to hdmi? Would i benefit by staying with dvi instead of switching to hdmi or is it the same both ways?

How To Connect Xbox 360 To Monitor ?

How do you connect a xbox 360 to a computer monitor? Preferably using hdmi to connect to the xbox. Answer:- if the computer monitor has an hdmi port, then you simply use a standard hdmi cable to hook it up to your xbox 360. If your computer monitor has a dvi port, you can use a dvi-to-hdmi cable. If your computer monitor only has a vga port, then you have to use the microsoft xbox hdav vga cable (sold separately). Hdmi will not work with vga-only monitors.

How To Connect Xbox 360 To A Pc Monitor?

I own a samsung 2233sw monitor, which has two ports at the back that can accept data in analog & digital formats. I have the cpu connected to the analog port, now i need to find a way (if there's any) to connect the xbox 360 to the digital port. I currently use a vga switch to switch between the video streams from the pc & the xbox 360, but the maximum resolution it can support is 1600*1200. Is there any special adapter or cable that will enable me to connect the xbox 360 to the pc monitor via the digital port so i can view both devices in resolutions of 1920*1080? If i can't connect the xbox 360 to the digital port, then is there a way to connect the pc to it? Sorry about the long question, but i wanted to give as much detail as possible.

Dvi To Vga Adapter

I'm getting the 6600 gt ( bfg ) soon , but i just realized that the card have these connectors only ( connectors: dual dvi-i, hdtv / s-video out ). That means there is no vga connection. And what i have in my house is this 19' crt monitor. So shall i get a dvi to vga adapter or what ? And how much do these costs ? ( I think it's the adapter won't come with the box, here is the link for the card http://www.Bfgtech.com/6600gt.html ). Never saw a dvi to vga adapter and i don't know if i need one and how much do they cost. Thanks in advance guys !

Edit: sorry for the rush, i realized that a dvi to vga dongle is included in the box. Anyways to not make this thread totally trash, what is the main benefit for a dvi-i connector?

Can I Connect Xbox 360 To Lcd Monitor?

Ok well i have a 20 inch hp lcd monitor and i want to hook up my xbox 360 to it so i can play on it because i have a small tv and i would prefer to play on my lcd monitor. I heard that you have to buy the vga xbox 360 cable to play but the thing is i have an hdmi cable but the cable is like not the one for the computers its kind of hard to explain but if you were to search this exactly "insignia hdmi" without the " and look at the third picture that's sorta what i have. And yeah i want to know if i would still have to buy the vga xbox 360 cable or is there a way to do it.

Using Dvi / Vga Ports Simultaneously

My boss wants a new video card and dual monitor set-up. I've ordered 2 kds rad-7gs flat panel lcd monitors for this purpose, i think they use 15-pin d-sub vga connectors. Most of the video cards i've been looking at have multiple video out ports, however there are very few video cards out there with dual-vga ports. I'd rather get a better video card with 1 vga / 1 dvi out and just use a dvi-vga converter for the second monitor. I'm worried that i wouldn't be able to use both ports simultaneously. Is this possible? I've noticed on the spec sheets some of them list "dual monitor support". If that's not listed, should i assume that the ports can't be used simultaneously?

Connect Xbox 360 To Play On Laptop Monitor

Can i connect my xbox 360 so i can play on my laptop monitor? I have an hp dv5t laptop its about 2 years old. I would like to try to play xbox on it because it is bigger and probably better quality than my tv. Is this possible? It said i just have a generic pnp monitor but i don't know if it is still hd or what. So can i connect and would the quality and lag on my computer make it impossible to play? Because i don't want to spend money on cables or whatever just to find out it doesn't work.
