How to hook up XBOX 360 HDMI up to a Computer monitor


I recently bought a computer monitor and relized that it was much better than my regular tv so I wanted to get all i could out of my XBOX 360 Elite and have the best picture quality possible

Things You'll Need

  • HDMI to DVI Adapter
  • or HDMI to VGA Adapter
  • XBOX 360, a later version with HDMI hook up
  • HDMI cable from xbox 360
  • Place a DVI to Female HDMI or a VGA to Female HDMI adapter into a open spot on the back of your LCD or CRT Monitor

  • From the XBOX 360 package box take the given HDMI cable (which looks like a buffed up USB cable) and place it in the back of the 360 in the designated hole

  • Take the other end of the cable and place it in the back of the monitor where you placed the adapter. Some new LCD monitors do come with a HDMI hook up so if you have one just plug it in to that hole

  • Again in your XBOX 360 package box look for the given audio cable that has a red and white audio out on it, and plug in a R/W audio to 3.5mm into the monitors speakers or into any set of speakers. you can purchase a R/W to 3.5mm splitter here

  • Usually on PC LCD monitors there should be a Source button, after turning the monitor on hit the source button and go to the Digital Connection

  • Next power up your XBOX and go to the Dashboard and go to the Systems Page

  • Click screen resolution and choose the resolution that best fits your monitor

  • Click Screen Format and choose which type of connection that you have which should be HDMI

  • Finally hit Reference Levels and choose the level that looks the best to you which should be the Expanded Level

  • This should do it and you should be experiences the full potential of your XBOX 360

Tips & Warnings

  • Remember to set the fine tuned details of your monitor in the monitor Menu
