HDMI out on 360 to HDMI on a monitor with speakers would get you Sound. With yours having no speakers you need the Optical out dongle and connect to a decoder/amp

If the monitor had component in the you could use the component Red [Pr] Blue [Pb] Green [Y] and Red/White to a stereo amp

jazfertabay... your not using an adapter to convert HDMI to DVI are you?

Ok, sorry you answered his question in your first post.

Component is comparable to HDMI anyway so if it can take that i would just use that. Cheaper way of doing it. :thumbsup:

No need to apologise.

not sure of the other connections will have to find it on the net, as its on the shelf and cant get it turned round to much to see

i think

HannsG HG281DPB according to a few reviews has speakers

use hdmi > hdmi cable to monitor and set 360 to ouput stereo if you are using an hdmi to dvi you will not get any sound from 360 unless you use optical out on audio dongle to amp/decoder

Sound

as above then use a cable that has hdmi at both ends if still no sound use 360 options to adjust from there and then the monitors menu.

yes you will have to set up HDTV settings eg 16.9 widescreen (it may auto select HDMI now) but with you having had it connected to a TV if say that TV was Standard definition 4.3 you will have to setup for 16.9 hdtv
