Just switch the inputs on the TV using the remote. Don't forget that the monitor has to have speakers for the xbox to have sound.

There should be a way to change inputs. You may just have to unplug whichever one you aren't using at the time due to the monitor auto-searching for inputs.

Depending on the model of the monitor, you should be able to switch from the menu of the monitor itself. I have an HP 2408w and I just hit menu, then scroll down to input select and hit menu again, and voila. Hope that helps!
