Re: XBox 360 Reboots when switching to HDMI Input
Aha, I think I found it here:

http://forums.slickdeals.net/showthr...611933&page=53

Here's a quote for the relevant parts:
"I have the same problem. It's actually the Xbox... Question are you using AV cables to get Optical audio? I'm using the Component AV adapter sliced up for just the Optical output and HDMI. It restarts when I switch components.

From what my understanding is, the Xbox automatically detects when you switch to and from HDMI . And if you have the AV cables hooked up also it switches to the next connected mode which is: Component. The problem is the Xbox requires a restart when it switches modes.

If i take off the Component AV adapter, and just have HDMI the Xbox will not restart."

I did just what this guy describes: I'm using the XBox's component out for the audio but I'm using the HDMI cable for the video.

Problem solved. Although I don't know why my searching didn't turn up that forum/topic before.

Cool thanks that explains it. I have it hooked up for my turtle beach headset so that must be the prob. Thanks again.

Yeah, it's the HDMI's bulls*** DRM causing that, so no naughty people can't copy movies over HDMI or something that people might've tried like 10-15 years ago but not today.
