Xbox 360 + VGA Adapter = Fail?

Post by fatefirst » Mon Nov 10, 2008 11:36 am

I am having some problems with my xbox 360 and a AV to VGA adapter that plugs into a spare montior I have.

I know the Xbox 360 video cable is working fine(tested it on a normal TV: both HD and TV).

The montior is working fine with VGA tested it with a computer.

The adapter is works fine with 24" Acer Monitor(friend of mine), but when trying to use it on my LG it does not display a picture at all.

I messed around with the video settings on the 360. Nothing seems to work am I going to have to bite the bullet on an actually Xbox 360 VGA cable?

I have searched the internet for forums on this issue, nothing has my exact issue anywhere (I have searched). Thought I should visit Legitreviews for some help.

well..with that monitor id say the xbox vga cable might be the only way...judging from an outsiders point anyway(i dont have an xbox)..only other thing i can think of is using the component cables to the video card with the s-video adapter(assuming you have one that came with the card)..you would probably need a program to utilize that s-video/component cable too(like a media center type thing such as ATI's Catalyst Media Center or somethin else)..that worked for me when i hooked up my N64 to my monitor..
