I've got one of the new Xbox 360 with HDMI and component included. However, my TV is older, and not high definition. I can play my 360 on my old TV but I'd like to try it out in HD> I would like to have my 360 output a HD signal to my monitor (or a future monitor).
The monitor I am using for my PC is a Samsung 710N http://computers.pricegrabber.com/fl...ors/m/4161731/
It's a nice monitor, but doesn't support DVI. It only has VGA inputs.
Firstly, is there anyway to convert a component/hdmi signal to my VGA monitor?
Secondly, I know the next monitor I buy will have DVI. I've seen DVI-HDMI adapters (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812189056
) but what about audio? Is there a way to convert the audio from the HDMI to a headphone jack output and convert the video to a DVI?
Or thirdly, would it just be a better idea to buy a monitor with an HDMI ports
Is there any drawback in playing a gaming console on a monitor rather than a TV? What's the difference between an LCD TV and an LCD monitor?
