Xbox 360 HDMI Question - Updated

Just a quick question going to buy a HDMI cable for my xbox 360 and was just wondering if i need to buy an offical microsoft HDMI cable or can i use any?


EDIT: well just realised that there are no HDMI sockets on the back of the 360 (thought there was for some reason) and i have the core 360 so it doesnt have the fancy leads, so im guessing i need to buy a proper microsfot one then do i? if so any pointer as to where to get them from?

thanks in advance ;) (again)

i'm using the funny scart cable that came with my premium, but i'm not sure where the extra scarts go as there are 2 extra red sockets and when i try and put the cable in hd mode, the screen is just blank even though i can hear the game

I was tempted, but i thought i'd give you the benefit of the doubt :-D.

On the otherhand I know its not a 360 but my PS3 is using a £5 HDMI cable and it works perfectly.

Sounds like you're referring to the component/composite cable - this has a red, green and blue connector together on one part and yellow, white and red on the other. To use it on a standard television with composite input, you use the yellow, red and white plugs, if you have a component input (typically HDTVs), then you use the red, green, blue and red, white plugs.

Original Xbox Core/Premiums do not have hdmi, only later models which is mainly the Pro/Elite (and Arcade possibly?)
