HDMI to DVI @ Future Shop.

Audio will be a problem tho. If you have optical output on xbox you can get optical audio....

Better yet, wireless headset.

he's using a computer LCD monitor, it doesn't have RCA's for audio, it probably doesn't even have speakers.

VGA < DVI

Get a HDMI to DVI wire.

Don't buy overpriced Xbox cables.
Buy a DVI to HDMI connnector from any electronics retailer and dollar store audio cable. all should cost less than $20

dont buy from futureshop = rip off. those guys want 100$ for a 1ft HDMI cable, **** off.

try factory direct or tiger direct for those parts.. or even small stores on college near spadina. should be cheap/.

what you're going to have to do is get an amplifier with an hdmi IN and hdmi OUT port
that way it steals the audio leaving the picture.
that is the only way to get audio sepereate from hdmi
