Ok so this is a breakdown of my abomination of a gaming set up...
I have a computer monitor with only DVI does not have HDMI port it also does not have speakers hence no audio jack ports to get video I've always used a HDMI to DVI adapter.
Now with the xbox 360 I had been using the audio adapter for the component slot on the 360 this made it so I had both chat and game audio though my turtle beach x12 headset. Now of coarse the x1 doesn't have a component slot so that's useless. I just bought my x1 a few days ago and it just arrived yesterday. So i've been playing with the settings and I had bought a headset adapter to try and get things working (I was under the impression with the updated controller game audio could be transmitted via the controller, guess I was wrong) Here is a link to this adapter I attempted to use http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004SP0WAQ?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00. Now with this adapter I am able to get chat audio only, I have tested and it does work.
Now I've been talking with a buddy I know and he suggested getting an optical to analog audio converter and cable with give me game sounds and chat, I'd like another opinion/option. I've already got too many cords and buying a new monitor/tv with speakers is out of the question considering I just dropped $400 bucks for the x1 itself.
