I know there is lot of people with a lot of knowledge here which is why I thought I am sure someone has had this problem or at least would know how to fix it.
Yesterday I connected my XBOX 360 to my TV which is one of the early LCD models which does not have a HDMI port.
Instead I have a DVI and a VGA ports and for the sound it has a 3.5mm Audio In port which it fine.
I know I could get one of the XBOX 360 VGA cable which has the VGA output and two RCA for the sound so with a simple adapter from RCA to 3.5mm it would work. But I rather use the HDMI to DVI cable and whatever solution I find for the XBOX 360 I could do the same or something similar for the PS3.
But I already have a HDMI to DVI cable which I use sometimes for my laptop. So I do not want to spend a lot on this, I just want to know how to do it.
The problem that I have is that the HDMI to DVI cable has no AUDIO cable and the XBOX 360 has not got any audio output which I could use to put into my 3.5mm input port.
The cable works and it looks brilliant the XBOX 360 output at 720p looks very good so I am happy with that so now I only need sound.
So any ideas of what can I do to get sound? Any way I could get a HDMI to DVI and 3,5 mm cable or something like that.
I also thought about trying to hear the XBOX 360 on my headset but I can not get it to work, any idead if I could do this ?
Ideally I would like to get it working with this cable
Thanks in advance for any advice and your time
