    Doesn't it come with the DVI cable or am I thinking of something else?

    I dont think so, it was the arcade xbox I bought for £130, didnt see any other cables:oops:

    Is DVI the one with two audio wires and three video wires?

    I think its a rectangular connector with a row of pins-about 21 pins to enable HD but i am not sure

    oh yes, so i need the vga cable and the male adapter? where does it plug into the xbox or does it replace the scart:oops:

    buy these two exact items and plug them together, plug one end in the 360 console tv out socket, plug the other end into the tv's DVi input, plug the remaining 2 audio plugs into the audio inputs on your tv, then switch everything on change to the correct channel and change the 360 console's tv settings. Also to get sound you need to manually switch the audio channel somewhere on your remote if you can.
