How to Output Audio via RCA when Using HMDI on Xbox 360

How to Output Audio via RCA when Using HMDI on Xbox 360

By Shadow Links

One day I wanted to use my computer monitor to play my console games on with a HDMI to DVI cable since its more portable. Lo and behold it has no speakers nor does DVI carry audio data anyways, but with this solution a set of computer speakers or headphones can be used to hear the sound anytime you want to use the HDMI for video and composite cables for sound.

Needed Items:

  • HDMI cable/HDMI to DVI
  • A set of composite cables for XBox 360 (Yellow/White/Red)
  • Screwdriver
  • Optional: X-Acto Knife
  • Optional: Electrical Tape
  •  Composite to 3.5mm audio jack
  1. Take the X-Acto knife and score the creases on the sides of the large plug on the composite cables (optional but makes it easier)
  2. Wedge the screwdriver in there hard and push through to open the shell. Dont worry about being rough, its mostly empty air inside.FBZIKVKG4PBWUG3.MEDIUM
  3. Remove the bulging shell. All it ever did was take up space.

    No wires or anything to deal with. Just the plug going into the cable.

  4. Wrap the plug with electrical tape to prevent anything from coming loose and cover where the shell used to be.FUCGH5OG4PBWUFW.MEDIUM
  5. Plug this into the Xbox as well as the HDMI cable. The RCA ends (Red/white) into where ever you want the audio and the HDMI cable will go to the TV.
    Back of the Xbox. Now both the Composite and HDMI cables fit.

  6. If you want a different output to headphones or a set of computer speakers you can buy a audio jack adapter to change from composite (White/Red) to 3.5mm stereo jack

And that’s it. Now you can output audio to headphones to enjoy your games quietly without an expensive set of Turtle Beach headphones or use a set of speakers to blow everyone away.
