    HDMI connection not working


    ok - my son has an Xbox 360. We bought a new 50" TV for his birthday. Using an HDMI cable we hooked up the Xbox to the TV and everything worked great. Nice picture and sound. He tried to plug in his head phones and now we get no picture or sound

    Xbox 360 Slim - HDMI video & Component video.. can it work?

    Hi there,

    Currently have a 24" monitor (Asus K242HL) and my xbox 360 slim.

    The monitor does not have any sound output, so the typical hdmi connection to my xbox only provides clear video...

    After searching it up and finding numerous threats about connecting both a hdmi and component cable, i went along with it..

    Scenario:

    When the hdmi is connected as normal, video works. As soon as i plug the component cable in also, to output sound onto my speaker, the monitor loses signal and the xbox just starts an iterative loop of restarting.

    So im unable to achieve sound & have video .. with the component cable connected to the xbox and no hdmi, the sound output does infact work on my speaker.

    How am i able to have the two cables function side by side, are there any settings i have to tweak within the xbox 360 to get this to function?

    Xbox one optical update?

    i have not tried the optical out directly on the xb1... i have run my dolby surround on a (out) for my tv... i guess i should try it off my xb1 and see if i get the update??

    it would make no sense to me that it would only work with a headset/astros/tb... to get the update thru a plug in on the controller..

    i have used my xb1 hdmi out to my tv and used the coax/aux audio output to my digital bar... games like bf4 have changed compared to convential speaker/tv speakers... but forza5 sounds the same... and really in twitch streams it dosnt have the output/digital feed like it would on personal console/game..

    so if it was bundled in with the update i got it.. if i had to connect some other way than i did not or was not prompted to at any point that i connected the soundbar.


    i followed this:
    Connect Xbox One to Your Home Theater or Sound System

    Audio receiver with optical or sound bar

    This is a slightly more complicated configuration that may require cables other than HDMI cables. This option provides full surround sound from your television set-top box. It’s best for older A/V receivers that either don’t have an HDMI port or don’t support audio over HDMI.

    Connect your set-top box HDMI output to the Xbox One HDMI input.
    Connect the Xbox One HDMI output to the HDMI input on your television.
    Connect the audio output from the television to the audio input on the sound bar using either HDMI or Optical S/PDIF cables.

    unless i am missing something my coax wont plug in to the back of my xb1.. i have to go directly from the tv.

    HDMI connection not working

    Your xbox 360 console comes with an identical cable that goes into the back of the console where the red and white (sound cables) go into, all you need to do is find the smaller cable so you hdmi will fit in simultaneusly.

    Are you using an HDMI cable for connection or other means.

    3D will only work through an HDMI connection, please could you try using an HDMI cable to see if this rectifies the problem.

    HDMI no signal xbox360

    Ι have tried it on another tv monitor and it did work. The connection with hdmi was working. And my current tv works with the same hdmi cable if i connect a laptop with it. It's really strange. I don't know what else I have to do
