  1. yes those connectors only for xbox 360

    also I am in England I should have mentioned that

    I did a quick google for xbox 360 Microsoft RCA cable and found this
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/RCA-Audio-Cable-Adaptor-compatible/dp/B004S5EH6Q
    what is it?
  2. That adapter allows you to connect to a home theater system. The red and white RCA connections carry your audio channels and the video is passed via the optical fiber connection.

    The yellow cable you refer to is the video cable.

    What kind of make/model of display/HDTV are you trying to connect to?
  3. its not a HDTV its quite an old one
    the only other connectors are SCART and and something that the arial goes in (sort of circular with a smaller circular bit in the middle the bit that goes in it has a pin that goes in the inner circular bit - or was it the other way around...)

  5. ok I did a miss google (I thought the thing I described was an AV cable)
    and I found it might be an AV cable so did a google and found this (its like my old VGA cable (an official Microsoft one I think) only without the VGA bit)

  6. If I understand correctly, the cable you have should work (as long as it converts the digital signal passed by the HDMI port to the analog video connectors). With the that cable, you connect the yellow connector to the video in and the paired red and white connectors to the audio-in ports on the TV. The other connectors are simply not used.
  7. my xbox doesn't have HDMI I believe its actually one of the original (core I think they were called) systems
