Hey guys. For a few months now I have been forced to use my Xbox 360 component cables to play my Xbox. My HDMI cables will not work with my Xbox 360 anymore.
Now before giving me suggestions I would like you to take not of the following:
•I have literally tried every test under the sun to get it working, including holding Y and RT on load up.
•I have tried multiple HDMI cables
•I have tried multiple TVs
This problem originated when I purchased my AverTV Capture HD device. For some reason this capture device would never recognise my Xbox through HDMI. it would always list it as 'Out of Range'. Eventually after trying to get it working on the capture device for a couple of weeks it would not work on my tv.
Every now and again I can get a picture to appear for a few seconds, both on the TV and the Capture Device.
This is the image:
As you can see, it seems the input is specified as DVI. Could this be causing problems? I have also experience my HDMI connection flickering on screen every now and again before this all happened but it was never too common.
All I can think of at this stage is that either my Xbox is stuck thinking it is a DVI connection or my HDMI port is completely useless at this stage. I was going to (I didn't do it so it is still unopened) open up my Xbox and try my hand at replacing my HDMI port but my Brother informed me that it was part of the motherboard and would be extremely difficult?
Any suggestions would be very very welcome. I have finally run out of patience with this and I really do hope I don't need a new Xbox. Thanks!
