Xbox 360 connect to VGA but no sound

Lo everyone

We have a VGA slot on our TV
so we have plugged the Xbox 360 (using an official Xbox 360 VGA connector, see image below)

The connector also has two audio connectors, we have a space next to the VGA on the back of the TV and have connected them to the correct colours

Picture is fine, but we get no sound, have tried messing with setting changing from digital to the two other settings, but nothing seems to work.

Any idea or have we missed something?

many thanks

Re: Xbox 360 connect to VGA but no sound

Sure the phono jacks are for the VGA input?
Most of the flatscreen TV's that I've seen (I assume it's a flatscreen), have a regular headphone jack type connector for the VGA sound

I'm going to second this motion (as it's what I said to you on Skype) :P

Re: Xbox 360 connect to VGA but no sound

I use the digital output for sound when using my VGA, the other jacks have never worked for me.

Re: Xbox 360 connect to VGA but no sound

I had this issue. But with scart plug. Realised that I had to plug the audio into the Surround sound after a while >.< not good.. If it still fails to work, I would suggest to get a HDMI cable.. Works much better

Re: Xbox 360 connect to VGA but no sound

Rashers Xbox doesn't have HDMI, Right I think its not being plugged into the right socket, on the end of the two phono pots should be a phono to 3.5mm adapter, plug that into the 3.5mm hole that should be next to or very near the VGA connector.

Re: Xbox 360 connect to VGA but no sound

i agree with the above that there should be a 3.5 for the VGA input
unless its clever and can bring the audio from the audio in phonos
is this the only lead you have ??? component one ???

This thread is blatantly part of a cunning plan by Rasher to try and convince Linda that they need to buy a new TV in the sales.
