i really need someone help here....i bought a monitor (Acer G226HQL 22" Monitor) that has no built in speakers and i did not realize that it only has 3 outports. The Dvi port (i have a cable for it and it has a HDMI on the other end and i connected it my xbox). The other port is D-SUB which is not in use. And the last one is for powering the monitor.

i want to connect my tritton headset to it so i can play games through my headset, but the problem is that i dont knowhere to put the female green sound jack AND the red and white cable.

i have already put my main cable (for the xbox) in with the HDMi.

So my question is....How and where do i put the last 3 wires so i can start plying my games.

im sooo sorry if this is confusing in any way but im really desperate to get this fixed.

i dont want to buy a speaker or anything else...only additional wires to solve this problem...

Thank you for reading this and if you can help me in any way, i will be so happy. :)

Your monitor does not have any audio interface, doesn't seem possible.

i understand why i would need the second one (http://www.amazon.com/CablesOnline-Stereo-Splitter-Adap...)

But why do i need the first one? (http://www.amazon.com/2-5mm-3-5mm-Female-Stereo-Adapter...)

sorry am no good with stuff like this :) 



If you are using an actual 360 controller, there is a headphone plug on the controller itself. If you hold it normally, it will be on the edge facing you. The plug is smaller than a normal headphone jack, so the adapter I linked should plug a normal 3.5mm headphone jack to fit the 2.5mm plug on the controller. That should work.

The second that I mentioned is an alternative in case plugging into the controller doesn't work. The video I linked should explain what to do with it :-)

You will not be able to use the mic at all with any of these solutions unfortunately :-/ I'll look into it see if I can come up with something

There really is no way to use the mic on a headset without it being Xbox compatible :-/ you will only be able to hear your games.
