I'm thinking about getting the vga adapter for my xbox 360 to use my pc monitor with the system but was wondering about how the audio works with that set-up. I have a 2.0 speaker set-up and was hoping this adapter could help me out

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/products/details/US/EN,CRID=2177,CONTENTID=10036

It says 5.1, no mention of 2.0 or 2.1 but I wasn't sure if it would be compatible if I just plugged the speakers into the green mini jack on the adapter and left the orange and black empty... anyone know if this works, or if there's a better way to do audio with the vga cable?

If you don't have a 5.1 setup why would you need the adapter? Just leave the 2 channel setup and plug it in to whereever. To get true 5.1 audio out of an xbox you will need an optical connection to a separate reciever or card that will let you input digital signals.

i would guess you plug the stereo speakers into one of the inputs on the output side of that adapter. this is provided the 2.1 speakers you have has the 1/8 inch plug. i dont know what the three colors signify in that illustration. obviously .. know the red and white rca.

seems you could use this

and then use a gender changer for where your 2.1 speakers plug in.

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I use this vga adapter with my 1440*900 LCD monitor, since I have this really old tv and cant afford a new one just yet. Anyway, with the cable, my native res. aint there so I have tried all possible ones, but I cant find one that suits. I have a 16:10, not 16:9. Anyone know of some fixes to be done?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
