    [URGENT] HDMI/DVI help


    I am asking this since I am a Mac user and I do not know much about Windows computer structure, etc.

    So I will be getting a desktop PC soon and I would like to hook my Xbox 360 and One to it (I use HDMI for TV). I know SOME computer monitors/towers have HDMI and some have DVI. Which is more common to see on recent computer monitors/towers?

    If the computer I get has an HDMI:

    -Will it most likely work without having to buy an adaptor or whatever?

    If the computer I get has a DVI:

    -I would get a female-HDMI to male-DVI (just making sure), right?

    :)

  3. HDMI HELP!!!

    Hi, I have 3 HDMI ports on my tv. HDMI / DVI HDMI 2 AND HDMI 3. When using HDMI / DVI i find that it interupts with my picture. When i look on the back of my tv i see the 3 ports labelled DVI HDMI 2 AND HDMI 3 i was using ''DVI'' probably the HDMI cable
    is not ment to be plugged into a DVI port? So my question is does DVI not support HDMI? i get a fine picture when i go off the DVI port but i also get a distorted picture every so often. Now i have been using HDMI port 2 and i have had no problems. Anyone
    know why i encountered that problem thanks!

    [URGENT] HDMI/DVI help

    Well the problem is you can hook the 360 to the PC without much trouble and stream content from your PC through your console, but you're not going to be able to do that on the X1. The X1 doesn't come with the system player app that came with the 360 because
    they are marketing all that content through Xbox Music and Xbox Video. No more networking your system and playing downloads through your console.

    Sad pirate is sad.

    Playing on monitor- PLEASE HELP!

    Hi Killereph, Im AJ, i hope this helps, HDMI is the best conection compared to the others it will give you more clarity when gaming. 720p is not the best HDMI obviosly 1080p is higher and better. having HDMI to DVI will not give you HDMI quality it is only
    another way of joining 2 connection ports, if your input socket is DVI it will stay DVI. Vga is ok, but the best you can get is HDMI 1080P OR 1080I

    Will the Xbox One require an HDTV?

    You will need a TV or monitor with an HDMI or DVI input. With DVI you will need a HDMI to DVI adaptor.

    If you have a Digital AV Reciever you can also use that as a HDMI pass through with AV out if it supports this function.
