So my monitor has VGA and DVI-D, but not HDMI. Is it possible for me to run XB1?

I think that this adapter would work for video, but I have no clue how I would experience any audio. Any ideas?

Yeah, you might be boned (pun intended) in the audio department. However, the Xbone has a/v input, right? Maybe the system will allow you to output audio through that with video through HDMI (your dvi port). The PS3 allows that. If you have speakers that have white/red composite inputs, you can output the sound that way.

I could see some kind of HDCP problem but it probably will work.

I do have white/red composite inputs through my sound system. Do you know what kind of audio output the XB1 has?

For audio you can use the optical or a usb connection (it appears). I don't see an audio out other than that.

Are you sure your sound system doesn't have toslink optical? If not, you may have to buy a digital to analog audio converter:

Thanks for the info. That's too much work and too much of a loss in quality for me, so I may just upgrade from my old 5.1 sound system. I don't need a large one; just large enough for my small room for 1-3 people.

So barring HDCP stopping me (which I don't even know what it is), I should be able to run through the HDMI to DVI-D for video and optical to my new audio system and be fine. This sound about right?

HDCP basicly is like DRM, if your monitor is HDCP compliant then the adapter will work just fine.

As for audio I am not sure, optical out port will be your option to do that, mayhaps an adapter of some kid will help you.

Yeah, sounds about right.

High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection exists to make it hard to make good quality copies and pirate movies/shows. The passthrough puts the Xbox One on iffy ground.

Well, my monitor is not HDCP compliant. ****.

At this point I may as well just cancel my pre-order and wait until I upgrade everything or special cables are released. How disappointing :(
