what settings do you have on the xbox ,my xbox ,system settings?



dunno brb ill check

You have to choose the right audio option from the TVs menu on the hdmi input its incase your using a PC plugged in via a dvi to hdmi adaptor and theres no audio pass through on the graphics card and have to use the RCA or Jack for audio. I had the exact issue with my Toshiba LCD.

You know what Dave?!

I realised that you needed to change the setting last night but it was too late to ring you.
I forgot we set it up for the PC.

Oh well, Glad you've sorted it now.

We'll have to have a Game later!
