    Xbox to VGA monitor problems


    I have a HDMI extension cable to a HDMI to VGA converter to my monitor that i use for the 360 all the time. I Decided to try it on my xbox one that i didnt really play. Now i have tried to hook it up the same way and its not working.

    It worked once this morning after trying different settings it finally worked. Didnt change any setting and turned it off when i was done. Went to play again and nothing. At one point i did get a picture without sound but after restarting the xbox i got
    nothing again. Cant get any signal to my monitor. It is working fine on the tv. Tried my 360 again and that is working problem free to my monitor. I just dont understand why it worked and now its not at all.

    I have tried disconnect and reconnecting all my cables. Restarted the xbox one. Tried all the combinations of hdmi and dvi overrides aswell as the auto-detect. No matter what i do i cant get a signal to my monitor again. 360 is working well just not xbox
    one.

    Just not sure what to do now so im asking you

    I do have the HDMI on output and not input

    :)

    Hooking up a Xbox (the new one) to a 1920x1080 monitor

    Have you tried maybe using a port-to-VGA input cord ? .

    Considering it's a monitor , and not a TV , the VGA input would better suit the xbox and monitor .

    Xbox to VGA monitor problems

    What resolution capabilities does the HDMI adapter tell the Xbox console? And what resolutions is your VGA monitor capable of doing?

    Depending on the adapter, it might correctly tell the console that it can't do an encrypted HDCP connection, and if you try watch streaming videos or BluRays, they won't work.

    But your issue seems to be that you don't get a picture at all.

    Can you turn the console off, by holding the Xbox power button, then hold the Eject button down, and start the console while Eject is kept held down.

    That will force the console to boot in 420p, which should display on your monitor.

    Depending on your HDMI adapter's abilities and your monitor's resolution, manually set the console resolution to 720p or 1080p. Do not enable other resolutions, as your VGA monitor probably doesn't support 4K or HDR.

    Xbox to VGA monitor problems

    A monitor wouldnt have an hdmi output

    It would only havr inputs

    What is your configuration

    If you are using a desktopthat isnt needed jist put into the monitor itself

    Usuallu if you havr a blank scrren its best to remember it goes by computer resolutions not tv resolutions

    Set the xbox one to 640x480

    Then plug in the monitor

    Donr bother with an extension cable plug the hdmi directly into the converter

    Dont forget to set the monitor on that resolution i

    Once it works then fine go up from there

    Until you get bliurry lines then your monitor doesnt support that setting

    Monitors woth hdmi would be only in

    Its only when you connect to a desktop or laptop that they are out only
