Turtle Beach X1 connection issues


Active Member
Had these for quite a while now and love them. Worked fine with my old Xbox (connected through component)

I've recently upgraded to a Pro 60gb Xbox. At the time of purchase, I got a generic HDMI cable, connected it up to my Hannspree 37" tv and everything was great.

Came to connect my X1's earlier and it doesn't seem possible?? Did a bit of research on the Turtle Beach site and apparantly I have to get the official MS HDMI cable which comes with audio lead??

Can someone confirm if this is correct and if I have just wasted money on a generic HDMI cable?? Or is there away round it? (The Xbox is connected straight to tv, no surround sound- thats next on the list.)

Well I've gone back to using component for now. Seems pointless upgrading to a pro if I can't use HDMI and headphones. Should've just got my old one fixed.
