    I will have to ask my son! I am not sure if that is what I want or not! No wonder my kids think I am a technological dunce, I will get back to you later, thanks

    Been and got the damaged one so here goes...The cable splits in to two at one end and each of the two pieces has 3 pins on,
    one has green, red and blue
    other has white, grey/yellow, and red
    at the othe end there is a biggish plug type thing!
    It does say xbox 360 component HD AV cable on the plug.
    Does it sound like the one you have?

    You are taking about a component cable not a HDMI cable.

    Thank you!

    yep, that isnt a digital (HDMI) cable you have... (but if your telly has HDMI I would advise you getting one, the difference in picture quality astounded me...)

    Plus HDMI cables are cheaper - they can be had for about £3 at ebuyer: ebuyer.com/sea…491

    Both the screen and xbox have to support it though.

    Also you do not need to get a official Microsoft cable you can get one from play.com for £5.99. About the hdmi lead your xbox and tv must have this connection.
