The xbox av cable doesn't fit with the hdmi cable???

#1NintenioPosted 11/1/2011 6:32:33 AM
I got a x41 turtle beach and I dug up my av cable, but it won't fit with my hdmi! Do I need to buy a new cable? Also, it doesn't have the little digital output slot in it either... What do I need to get?

If you're av cables aren't component, you need to either get component cables and do what Frisco557 said, or you could buy the dongle.

Gamestop used to sell used component cables for $5

Looks good, and I notice one of the customer reviews says that there's no console reset issue when changing video sources. That is good, that means that it's exactly like the official MS dongle that comes with the overpriced HDMI cables.

I use three methods: The official MS dongle which comes with HDMI cables (mine came with the Elite), the workaround, and a generic 3rd party dongle from amazon/ebay. The generic dongle gives me the same HDCP issues as the workaround (resetting the 360 when the video source is changed) and the official MS dongle doesn't give me that issue. However, it only gives me that problem on one TV. So for that TV I use the official MS dongle.
ready for a bit of the o' ultra-violence

If you get the multi system component cables from GameStop they work great. (MadCatz/GS Brand)
