Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I used to have an older 360 without an HDMI port, and I hooked it up to my computer with one of these that came with an adapter to plug the audio cables into the computer speakers, and it worked like a charm.
I'm going to be buying a new 360 soon, and I noticed that the HDMI ports are now standard. My monitor has an HDMI plug, but since the sound is apparently transmitted through the cable, and my monitor has no speakers (not that I'd want to use built in ones if it did), I don't see how I can use my computer's speakers with the xbox and the computer monitor.
is there some kind of setup that would facilitate this? I would just use the old cable I referred to, but I can't find the first-party cable I used, and all of the third party imitators have pretty bad reviews, with comments about ghosting problems. My TV is old as hell, and I can't even play some games on it (looking at you, dead rising) due to resolution issues. On the other hand, I have a very large 1080p monitor, so this is really the only acceptable way I can hook it up.
