HDMI won't work with my monitor?

I got a Acer monitor a couple months back for my computer, I also got it because it has two HDMI ports, so I could connect an xbox or something when I got it. Finally got one and it won't work.

I tried lots of troubleshooting. The monitor model is: "Acer S230HLAbii".

Start my troubleshooting at at the basics though, just so I can be sure I didn't miss anything.

Hello, the first thing I would try is resetting your display settings this can be done by powering up the console using the guide button on a controller, as the console boots up press and hold Y and the right trigger on the controller.

Actually I found out it's because my monitor "doesn't support HDCP".

Anyway to bypass this? If I can't I just purchased a $200 non-returnable paperweight. :/

Really Microsoft, really?

Didn't help. If I even turned it off, I couldn't see anything. I just bought a converter which has good reviews. In the long run it'll help me because now I have sound, before I wouldn't have had sound. It was like $30 but whatever. It'll use VGA which I can live with. :/

Thanks! I only got the xbox for Minecraft/Halo, and possibly Lollipop Chainsaw. I bought it new in box(sealed) for $120. :D

You made a wise choice and at that price it's a steal. Be safe on and offline my fellow Xbox gamer.

Will do! I'm normally a PC gamer, I built my current desktop, everything on it is the latest. I'm not much of a console gamer but I had the 'urge' to just get it for the heck of it. xD
