I've never once been so disappointed in a comany

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
The M$ name suits.

See picture.. I am trying to run component audio + HDMI video through the XBOX. The NEW component plug has a plastic tab preventing you from using hdmi and component audio without an adapter.

I got pissed and I REFUSE to drop more money on an adapter (lets totally forget about them not giving HD component cables in the first place.. more money to spend if I want to hook up with them in the future) ... So I cut off the plastic tab with a dremel. Funny part is it serves NO PURPOSE. It was an empty plastic tab simply there to force you to spend more money.

I am now using HDMI with component audio with... You guessed it.. No issues.

I have a few choice words I'd like to share with M$ that I can't exactly post here.. I'll leave you guys with the evidence and let you form your own opinion.

Lot's of people have this issue and just remove the plastic part. Not hard/a big deal IMO. Just saying it's not surprising since they are a company. Blame it on the designer of that part though, not like the company had a meeting and said "WE NEED A TAB HERE!".

you actualy cant say that for sure, after all it could be a company plan/idea to say "lets put a tab here to hinder the use of 3rd party cables and addapters, forcing the ople who arent smart enough, or too scared to mod thier brand new multi hundred dollar console, bringing in much more additional income.

Oh no! I can buy 2 GTX580's but this stupid Xbox cable is to much for me!
I just cannot take it!
It's insane!

Simply removed the tab and stop crying about it like a baby, even though you already did doesn't mean you gotta cry about it.



....My opinion.

Dude he is not saying he cant afford to get the cable, the point is the company leeching money from the dumb species called HUMANITY. Busnesses thrive off the majority of stupid people with money to blow.

Hate to be this person but that design of the cable was done way before they thought of implementing HDMI.

And that tab was most likely put there so people had something to hold while they connected or disconnected the cable.

which conveniently worked out in their favor at the cost of consumers.

Just saying
