    Xbox 360 Elite won't connect via HDMI when my 20gb HDD is connected


    Hi all, please bare with me as this is my first post!

    Basically, when I come to visit my mum, I'll bring my HDD with me and use it with my little brother's xbox360 elite via HDMI and it has worked perfectly in the past... until today.

    It is a quite weird in the sense that I can get the HDMI connection to work with the xbox when my HDD is NOT connected (although this is no use as I need the HDD to access my games such as Minecraft), but as soon as I connect my HDD to the xbox, it will
    NOT load up on the LG TV.

    I''ve tried numerous HDMI cables, even a gold plated one provided with the SKY+HD box and I have also tried changing the HDMI ports. As well as this I have tried the Y + RT trick to no avail Xbox 360 Elite won't connect via HDMI when my 20gb HDD is connected :( and I have also changed the output to 480p (the LG TV is 1080p
    Full HD) but this did not work either.

    I have also tried the component cables but again I have the same problem... they will work so long as the hard drive is not connected which means that my problem lies with the HDD but seeing as I use my HDD on my own TV at home via HDMI, I can't see where
    the problem is!

    Anyone got any suggestions? Been trying to troubleshoot for a day now and I'm still no further Xbox 360 Elite won't connect via HDMI when my 20gb HDD is connected :(

    :)

    Xbox 360 Slim - HDMI video & Component video.. can it work?

    Hi there,

    Currently have a 24" monitor (Asus K242HL) and my xbox 360 slim.

    The monitor does not have any sound output, so the typical hdmi connection to my xbox only provides clear video...

    After searching it up and finding numerous threats about connecting both a hdmi and component cable, i went along with it..

    Scenario:

    When the hdmi is connected as normal, video works. As soon as i plug the component cable in also, to output sound onto my speaker, the monitor loses signal and the xbox just starts an iterative loop of restarting.

    So im unable to achieve sound & have video .. with the component cable connected to the xbox and no hdmi, the sound output does infact work on my speaker.

    How am i able to have the two cables function side by side, are there any settings i have to tweak within the xbox 360 to get this to function?
