X360 And Hdmi
Posted 08 May 2008 - 12:33 PM
Recently got a new TV - it has HDMI inputs
My xbox 360 is connected to the TV through HDMI1
I turn on my X360 - it turns on..
Then I switch to HDMI1 on the TV..
The X360 then restarts for some weird reason..
Also, if I change input in the middle of a game - and then come back to HDMI1 it will restart..

if you do, then you will need to open up the metal sheilding on the end of the AV cable, and cut the only wire that loops back into the AV plug. that wire grounds 2 pins to tell the 360 what output to use. when HDMI is plugged in, it over rides that signal, but only if the HDMI signal is kept. if the console looses the HDMI signal from the TV, it will then default to SD/HD via the component cables and reset to make the video signal changes take effect

Do you have any picture guides on how to open the metal shielding?
Thanks for your kind help.

Opened it up with my bare fingers, surprised to see that many cables
Had no idea which one to cut, couldnt see if any of them looped..
But then this small one appeared, I cut that sucker and assembled the cable thingy again..
Turned on my TV, turned my x360, switched to HDMI and the x360 didnt reboot
Im so happy
I owe you one thousand theoretical dollars

I get no sound
sound through tv (component audio ones) works fine tho

also, try a different optical cable, and possibly try another source (like a DVD player)
another thing you can check in plug in an optical cable into the 360 and turn it on. unplug the other end of the optical cable from the surround sound/TV and look into the cable. you should be able to see a red light coming through the cable

So its not the cable and I definitely ****** something up in the AV thingy ^^
Multimeter? hmm - not sure where to get one of those..
Didnt the Elite X360s get some kind of slim AV cable?
Wondering if I should buy one of those
Do you know where can I buy them and how much they are?

I searched their site but couldnt find anything - do you know if they will ship to my country?
X360 AV OPTICAL ADAPTER
I believe that is the dongle that comes with the Elite ^ that solution would be much easier than fiddling with multimeters and whatnot
