So, I have a Dell 1707pf as one of my monitors. It has two display channels, analog and digital. The analog channel is connected to my computer, the digital - the xbox.
I wanted to be able to play my ORIGINAL xbox on this monitor, so I ordered a few parts.
(-) DVI to VGA adapter
(-) VGA to RCA cable
It goes like this, if you want a "picture"
(DVI PORT) ---> DVI to VGA adapter -----> VGA to RCA Cable ----> Xbox
Now, all the cords for my xbox are working and properly plugged in, and the xbox itself is in wonderful condition. I turn on the xbox, switch the channel of my monitor to digital, but I get no image. Therefore, can't play my xbox.
So what am I doing wrong? Please offer help/suggestions, as I'd really like to be able to do this! Thanks!
You forget that unless it's DVI-D, it supports an analogue signal (DVI-I or DVI-A). Hence why I suggested the component video cable first, I know they made those for the original Xbox because I have one.
