Xbox On Lcd Monitor


I'm in the market to get some kind of lcd monitor. The problem is. The ones i've looked at don't have the red, white and yellow inputs that the xbox uses to hook up to tvs. So far, the only options to remedy this, that i know of are. A vga box, which i have absolutely no idea what that means. And a tv tuner box. Now, from what i understand, with the tv tuner, if you get a really crappy, cheap one, the resolution goes to crap and you can only really use a tiny portion of the screen with any amount of clarity. Does this go the same with a vga box? Are there any other option? I'm not really looking to blow alot on this piece.

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.

Computer Monitor With Xbox 360

I'm looking into buying a new monitor that i can play my xbox 360 on because i do not have the money for a brand new tv. I found a 19" flat panel viewsonic for 430$. I believe it has 1280 x 1024 resolution. Is there any specifics i should look for before buying it? 360 games run at 720p and 1080 dpi. Can i connect it with vga box? Or do i need a monitor/tv with video connections? Is viewsonic a reliable brand? Anyone with experience playing a vg system on a monitor, your comments would be appreciated.

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.

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/

Xbox 360 Connection To Monitor With Speakers

My monitor is a hp w2448hc hdmi, i am using an xbox360 elite, the current cable i am using to go to my monitor is a hdmi to hdmi cable which makes the picture show up on my monitor and play audio through my monitors speakers. Now the problem is i want to play the sound through my speakers. They are an old brand of harman/kardon. They only have a green connection audio jack input thing. I plug that into my monitor and they will not work. How am i able to get these speakers to work through my monitor so i don't have to listen to my crappy audio from my monitor, but listen to the better quality from my speakers. What cables will i need, or is it simply something i am doing wrong?

Lcd Monitor Or Tv

Which one would provide a higher quality picture and overall performance, a lets say 24" wide screen lcd monitor with a tv tuner, or the same size lcd tv, high def most likely, and no tv tuner. The monitors tend to be more expensive, is that because they provide over all better resolution, if not, then which is better? This is because i was looking on either buying a tv tuner and nice monitor or a tv and hooking up my pc to it and want to know which one would be better.

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.

Cleaning Lcd Monitor

I was just wondering what the best solution (liquid cleaner) would be best for cleaning an lcd such as an lcd monitor or laptop. I have some expo white board cleaner, but it doesnt really say whats in it, and i know lcd's dont like ammonia, so i wont use standard glass (windex) cleaner. Its hard to find a solution thats specific for lcd's and the only one ive seen so far is in a pack of like 3 microfiber cloths (which i have been one using to wipe it off) but their some stuff on it that a cloth wipe just wont get off.

Lcd Hdtv Used As Monitor

I am considering buying a lcd hdtv to use as both a tv and a monitor. Recently bussincess depot had an acer 32" tv/monitor for can$1, 300, but they have discontinued it. So i have gone to other stores and were introduced with a variety of lcd hdtvs which the salesman said can also be used as monitors. I wanted to ask your opinions on whether there is any disadvantages on using a lcd tv as a monitor and switching back and forth between tv and monitor. Also do these high definition tvs (hdtvs) have a sharper image quality?

Lcd Monitor Flashing

I got this 24" lcd monitor here and have a problem with it. When i got it, i hooked it up and i would get no input on the screen from any source (vga/dvi/component). The "no cable source" thing would come up with a weird flashing behind it (like the backlight flashing). Anyway, i (stupidly) got someone to open the screen up and saw the inverter had two blown caps, so replaced them. Now when they opened the screen up, they forgot to undo a connection and it totally ripped off (see images). As you can see, there are some pins broken completely. I managed to connect it back together, ignoring the four or five snapped pins. So put the screen back together, not expecting much. Plugged it in and guess what, i get a picture! (Probably corrected from fixing the inverter). So i can see and run windows fine from this screen. Yet i still get the constant flashing and there are blotches around the screen with different coloured pixels. I am thinking the blotches are appearing because of the dead pins. Now what gets me is the flashing. Is that a dead backlight or something?

To describe it in more depth: it flashes a few times a second, so its really quick. Its like a halogen dying. When it flashes, it doesnt flash off, but flashes to a low brightness. When i turned the brightness from 100 down to 0, the flashing almost completely stopped (flashed once every minute or so). So what i want to know:

1. Whats causing the flashing?
2. Would the funny blotches on the screen be from the pins?
3. What board is that that has been snapped (highlighted in red). What is it called? How hard are they to find?

I mean the pins dont bother me, as if worst comes to worst i can simply remove the pins completely and solder the wires straight onto the board. Its just, i dont want to do that if the flashing will still be there.

Is 3d Possible At 30 Hz ? On A 60hz Lcd Monitor ?

I've seen a number of articles popping up regarding the use of 3d in various games, but they all state that it requires a 120hz monitor for it to work (the newer samsung display i believe). Is there any real reason why it can't be done on a normal 60hz lcd monitor? Ie the vid card calculates two perspectives at 30hz each, alternating each perspective each frame?

Yes i know the effective image frame rate would only be 30fps maximum, but you're still seeing 60hz refresh from the monitor. How can this be any worse than simply playing a game that sits around 30fps anyway?

Possible problem with potential ghosting? (On lower/older spec lcd's)

Connecting Lcd Tv As Monitor

I am seeking help in connecting my lcd tv as my second monitor. Let me explain the scenario and specifications. My specifications

One lcd monitor 17 inch (samsung)

One lcd tv 22in hd ready (samsung)

Inbuilt video adapter with hdmi and vga port (ati radeon)

Nvidia graphics card with vga and dvi port. The scenario:

Right now i connected my 17 inch monitor to my graphics card with vga port since the monitor does not have dvi port. And the display is with resolution of 1440 x 900. Since i am a web designer it is difficult for me to work in a 17inch monitor. What i want :

I am planning to connect my 22 inch lcd tv as second or maybe primary monitor. It has both vga and hdmi port. The tv is just hd ready (720pi). The problem

I wanted to connect my lcd tv with my computer (win 7 x64 ). I already was using it by buying a hdmi to dvi converter and connecting to my graphics card but the resolution was not standard. If i remember it is 1280—720. While my second monitor is 1440 x 900. The possibilities. Since i have on inbuilt graphics adapter as well as my graphics card. Is it possible to connect both in different graphics adapter and use ? For example 17in in graphics card and 21in using hdmi in my inbuilt. What do you guys suggest if you are in my legs. I badly need two monitors and i think its waste to buy a 22 in lcd monitor for this as the tv sits idle in my room without anyone watching it or should i use the both in same graphics adapter with the available resolution.

Liteview Lcd Monitor Drivers

I have a liteview lm15w lcd widescreen monitor. Its capable of going up too 1280x800 resolutions but because i do not have the drivers for it, windows see it as a standard lcd monitor which means that my video card cannot apply widescreen resolutions to it. I have googled for the past couple of weeks trying to find drivers for this thing and maybe some work around, but nothing. I can't even find liteview's manufacturer website!

Any ways to get some generic drivers or trick my card/windows into thinking its an lcd so i can apply the widescreen? I can't stand being stuck on 1024x768 on a 15 inch!

Lcd Monitor Power Problem

I've have a problem with an lcd monitor. The on/off button will freeze in the on position (green light on), such that when i push the button, it will not turn off. Most of the time i'm not even aware that it's happened, until i reboot the computer. When the screen goes black, just after the windows xp logo and just before the "welcome" screen, it remains black with the power light still on. When i unplug it and plug it back in, the screen comes up just fine. This seems to also happen randomly when the screen goes black just before switching to a screen saver. I've tried to disable all running programs with msconfig to see if a program was causing this. I was almost convinced that my trend micro anti-virus was doing it, as i seemed to be able to replicate and stop the problem by enabling or disabling the program. So i uninstalled the program, but now i noticed that it's happening again. Although i can't pinpoint the problem, it seems to be just predictable enough that i'm reluctant to think that it's an electrical issue. Any ideas?
