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.

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/

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.

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.

Connecting Xbox 360 To Laptop For Internet

I have vista ultimate. I am using a d-link wireless router. So ive been looking around on the internet for a way to connect my xbox 360 to my laptop, my laptop has a wireless connection. Ive tried several different articles including ones from here and on other sites, but non seem to work. The main problem is, it says my xbox 360 connection, is unidentified and when i try to diagnose it just says try automatically getting new ip address. Also i cant bridge connections because it says i need to have 2 high-speed lan, that are not being used through internet connection sharing. Also every time i try and make sharing allowed for my wireless connection, it says an error occurred while trying to make this shared. I am getting so frustrated that i cant get this too work, so if anyone needs any more information that might help you solve this, ill update it right away. Any help would be greatly appreciated. *Update* i recently found that the problem might be my router conflicting with my setup so i have to change the address.

Surely there's something wrong with that? If there is, could you tell me how i could fix it? Or perhaps i'm just being thick?
