    Hi,
    New member - my first post on the forums!
    I wonder if somebody could help me? I've scanned the existing threads but can't find my question addressed . . .

    . . . is there any way to connect the Xbox 360 to both S-Video and VGA outputs at the same time?
    I want to be able to connect to my monitor via VGA and my projector via S-Video, but I don't want to keep having to switch cables to select one or the other. What I need is a cable that terminates in both VGA & S-Video plugs (plus audio connections including optical). Does such a cable exist?
    Many thanks !
    :lease:

    The only way I can think off to get this would be a switcher box which has VGA input and VGA output along with s-video output but whether it will allow you to send more than one output at a time I dont know.

    Hi Indiana,
    Thanks. This could be the answer - I don't need the monitor and projector to be active at the same time, I just don't want the hassle of two separate cables. I'll look around for a switch box.
    Cheers!

    I'd guess that it isn't possible, just a guess though, due to the resolution of the s video and vga output being different. I'm no expert though.
