    VGA Cable Help Xbox One


    Okay so I have an xbox one and a acer monitor that I game on. In the past I always wore a headset but now im sick of wearing it and really want sound.

    okay so i have a hdmi to vga to connect my xbox to my monitor its simple. I need to use it because my hdmi port is broke and its not worth getting a new monitor when this adapter works fine. Is there any way that I can get sound from this from my monitor(there is speakers inside the monitor). or can I get sound another way out of the monitor by hooking up some audio cable from the xbox to the monitor? help please!!!!!

    thanks

    You have basically three unappealing options as I see it. One would be in finding a cable where the audio pins of the HDMI cable were redirected to separately broken out cables or something like a 3.5mm RCA jack. VGA is video only. DVI can do audio, though it's an unofficial thing that sends the audio data over unused pins, so it's not something you should necessarily rely on working all the time. The other option is if your monitor supports optical inputs for audio, get yourself an optical toslink cable some place like Monoprice and use that. I don't have an XBOne so I'm assuming that you can do like on the 360 and set the audio to go over an output other than HDMI. The third is finding some kind of device that can strip out the audio from the HDMI signal and then pass along the video. A surround receiver would be one such option, but trying to use that in conjunction with a computer monitor's speakers would be difficult at best. Still, it gives you the general idea of what you're looking for.

    I've seen that question somewhere else.
    Edit. You asked same question before and did not answer my question there !!!!
    Does monitor have a separate audio input ?

    Get a HDMI to 3.5mm jack + VGA or just get a new monitor, there only around 89 for a 1080p one

    I must've missed the update to this thread somehow... But why in the world would you need something with VGA to specifically say 1080p? VGA is perfectly capable of doing 1080p, so I wonder at the need to explicitly state it unless there's some attempt on the part of the vendor to deceive.
