Are there any fixes for this? My monitor has speakers and has an audio in port.
I know that with certain video cards, you can transport audio over a DVI cable to an HDMI converter and then to an HDTV.
Now, I'm Using my Xbox 360 with my HDMI cable to a single-link DVI-D converter that plugs straight into my monitor. The video works fine, but where can I get some audio??? I can't plug in the normal plugin to my Xbox and the HDMI because they crowd each other. Is there ANYTHING I can do to get audio?
Here's a diagram: Xbox 360 > HDMI Cable > Single-Link DVI-D to HDMI Converter (came with my 8800GT) > DVI-D monitor
EDIT: My video card IS one of those that supports audio over DVI and the adapter I'm using came with the video card. So the adapter definitely should work... right?
I dont think its possible to run audio trough an HDMI to DVI cable or converter. From what I know, DVI can only do video and audio if its a direct cable and some times just video.
Most monitors that have a 2.5mm audio jack in the back if it has speakers on it. You might have to get a 2.5mm to Left and Right (Red and White) audio converter. Then hook up the Xbox 360 to that.
I use the same method with my PS3.
Yes, it does have a 2.5mm audio jack which functions fully, HOWEVER i can't get audio to that port whilst using my HDMI cable. How can I get audio from my Xbox when my HDMI is in use? Is there a pin diagram I can see or somthing to just "hotwire" the audio to a 2.5mm jack?
In your set-up as you describe it the audio is lost when reaching the dvi connector. It does not support audio. For use with a HDMI cable you will need a transfer box, a little box that you connect to your xbox 360. From that box you connect a screen and an audio device.
You can also just use an analog cable like thie one: link here And use a plug to convert the rca audio to 2.5mm or 3.5mm jack.
