    EXPIRED :PC and XBOX 360 into 1 set of PC Speakers - Help requested

    My Son is getting a 360 for XMAS, and I have already bought (and tested of course :-) a VGA cable and switchbos that will allow him to connect to his PC Screen.

    Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced set of speakers with 2 inputs that he could use for PC and XBOX use (i.e. PC speakers with an AUx input that the XBOx could be connected to)

    Any help will lead to REP !!

    Just get an adapter that will allow you to plug two into one. I got one from tesco for about £1.50

    does that work - i though that the 2 into 1 were designed for splitting 1 output into two headphones, not 2 outputs into 1 set of speakers ...

    if you see what I mean...

    The kind of plug you're looking for does ]excist. Maplins has a 6.35mm one, but you may be able to find a 3.5mm one in store as well. Or else on eBay perhaps.

    I've got a basic splitter, but I inderstto that If I plugged the jack intp my pc, speakers into one socket and xbox into the other socket it would not work - thats what I was advised.

    Probably not, but you can get switchboxes for audio as well as video and one of those would definitely work.
