My Xbox 360 on my Monitor - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Oh boy! Does anyone know of a good deal then? I am buying one for sure!

Wait a minute though, the cable on my monitor cannot be taken out though, is there like a VGA splitter, for something like this:

XBOX-----Hdmi-VGA cable------vga splitter/switch-----------PC
MONITOR

You can just use a KVM switch. Although you'll more than likely only be using the video you can still use it just the same.

I second that, remember it comes with a Female to Female plug so you can plug into the end of the CRT cable, if u dont have a KVM.

I have a VGA cable for my LG L246WP and it works great.

Just know if you do get an HDMI to DVI and your monitor is 1680x1050 that the xbox doesnt support that resolution in the options.

GRR.

I hope they change it in the next update.

yeah best resolution if you dont have wide screen, eventhought there will be black line on the top and the bottom of the screen like if your watching a movie, but dont show in all games, eventhought its not so disturbing specialy if you have a 21" screen like mine

Sorry for the bump. I got a 32 inch HDTV, and a $30 HDMI cable. Best choice I have ever made in my life, 720p is enough to feed my eyes the candy for the next 3 years
