    How To Connect Xbox One to Monitor + External Speakers


    I hope this is the right place to ask this.

    I currently have an Xbox one and am going back to college where i currently have the following monitor: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0098Y77N2/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I bought this for my xbox 360 when I didn't know about the HDMI connection problem I have now with the Xbox one .

    This monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs, not HDMI. So I have been searching for the past 2 days on how to connect with either of these connections. I'm looking for a solution that isn't that expensive but also isn't the $7 HDMI to DVI adapter cable that
    apparently doesn't work and keep good quality.

    The external speakers i am using is this: http://www.amazon.com/Sharper-Image...&sr=1-1&keywords=sharper+image#productDetails I believe it has regular AUX audio connection.

    I have read online that I can use my elgato game capture, something called an HDFury (http://www.hdfury.com/shop/gamer/hdfury-gamer-2-component/?added-to-cart=593), and other ideas, but I'm curious to see why there isn't a uniform way to connect this that
    many people are suggesting.

    Thank you for reading and helping!

    :)

    Xbox One audio on a monitor?

    Hi there, in less than 2 days I'll have my xbox one! but I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to connect it to my monitor. Video, isn't a problem. Audio is, with my monitor not having built in speaker I have to use external speakers. How am going
    to connect it to those speakers? The 360 had a AV to RCA adapter, which made things easy. Any audio wiz kids that can help out? Thanks.

    How To Connect Xbox One to Monitor + External Speakers

    You can purchase a HD to VGA adapter from Amazon.com www.amazon.com/.../ref=pd_ybh_2. but for the speakers (from what I did) I used the headset
    adapter, 1 Aux cable, a Aux to AV converter, and a AV to AV cable

    You plug in all wires of one side into the speaker and only the red and white wires into the converter.

    Once you have done that you can plug in your headset adapter to any Xbox One controller you may have.

    After that, plug in one side of the AUX cable into the adapter and the other into the AUX side of the converter.

    You should be good after that. It is a lot to read but fun when you get to do it!

    Enjoy

    Xbox One in monitor no sound

    Hi Mayxze,

    The sound is transmitted through the HDMI cable so you may need an audio receiver in between the monitor and your Xbox. Would you mind explaining how you have the Xbox set up to your monitor and are the speakers external or internal from the monitor?

    You may need to find some speakers that connect using the optical S/PDIF port in the back if your monitor does not have internal speakers.

    Here is how to set up your Xbox to an audio receiver:

    I hope this helps!

    Xbox One with external speakers/headphones

    This may or may not be related but I just purchased an Xbox One and connected it via HDMI to the same television that I also use as my computer monitor (also connected via HDMI). The external speakers that are connected via coaxial S/PDIF to the television
    will play the audio from my computer but not from the Xbox One. Currently I'm having to switch the audio on my television to the built-in speakers instead of the external whenever I'm on the Xbox One source.

    Sound Issues

    This sounds incredibly odd. Are you using any kind of external speakers, or your TV's speakers? If external, how do you have the speakers connected to the receiver or TV?
