Instructables

Step 1: Time To Find The Parts!

Before you start this project, you need a few things.

1. Xbox 360 Console

2. LCD or CRT Computer Monitor. ( Just for a quick FYI, Mine is a 20 inch Dell wfp)

3.Stereo female RCA to male 3.5mm Cable Which Is needed to get the sound from your computer speakers.

4.Xbox 360 VGA HD AV Cable if your monitor does not have a component port. (mine does so no pictures)

PLEASE READ: to get the part 3 & 4, go to amazon.com or Radioshack ( I got my cables at Radioshack for $10)

You just had to rub in the fact that your monitor is a 20" Wide Flat Panel, huh?

Not really, I was just stating that my monitor was 20". Why how big is your monitor?
Well, now I've got two 19" gigantic CRT's... they're heavy as hell, they suck donkey balls... I HAD a 22" Sony WFP and it was seeeexxxxxyyyyyyy.... *sniffle* Man I miss it...

Flast panel lcd are really cheap now, 20 inches for under $130
I was just poking fun with my original comment anyway, but yeah, flat panels weren't cheap a few years ago when I got mine... when I first got that beast it was top 'o the line...

Where can you get the .Stereo female RCA to male 3.5mm?
Ozborne Ozborne5 years ago
Because I looked online and I couldn't find it. :/

Do you have a radio shack near you? they have it. and also it is sold byhttp://www.cablestogo.com/product.asp?cat_id=118&sku=40645 for only 2 bucks. Be sure to purchase http://www.cablestogo.com/product.asp?cat_id=118&sku=03170&relatedItem=true to hook up the female port to the female port on your speakers
Question: I have a PS2 that I want to do exactly what you are doing to your X360. Will it work? I can change a few things around if I need to.

This would be useful to make high quality videos of you playing games. Just use a screen recorder

Ummm.... I dont think that you grasp the fact that the xbox is only being plugged into the monitor and not the PC itself
