Could anyone suggest a cheap and quick way of getting Video onto a Monitor? It has HDMi, DVI, VGA ports and can go up to 1080p.

I once tried a VGA to Video adapter had no luck.

I think the only way you can do it is a video to VGA cable. I've never used one, but I remember people talking about them back in 2007.

Someone had a similar question to you a few months ago and we couldn't find any cables online for him. You may have a hard time finding a VGA cable for the old Xbox in 2011 Sad

It looks like its for the 360 so should it work just fine?

for switching from the xbox video cable to vga you either need a special converter or an xbox rgb since thats the same protocol as vga. I looked into this a little while ago but in reverse. conecting a pc via vga to a roxio game recorder which uses component and rgb. be sure to check the specs unless it supports rgb it wont work. another route is wiring a vga port into the xbox but dvi is much better since vga doesnt support audio

DVI port in the xbox? Would love to see a vid on that Very Happy

Also couldnt I use a Left/Right audio adapter and use my av coord as sound? I have a 3.5mm adapter I use with my 360
