    Hi

    I am wanting to connect my Xbox to my Pc monitor to save room in the spare room. I have had a look at a couple of adapters but am a bit baffled as to what to get and will it work. If i get a basic adapter i suspect i would lose the sound as the sound card is in my PC.

    Is there a way i can put a sort of AV input card into the PC and route it through my PC or is that just bubbles.

    Any advice would be appreciated

    Thanks

    This gives u an audio run through so if u have amplified speakers they can be attached to the speaker output on the adaptor. I think it also allows headphones to be directly connected. In our downstairs computer I have an ATI all in one wonder which lets you plug in any console and plays the console straight onto the monitor with sound through the PC's speakers but I run it as the main graphics card, dunno if you'd be willing to do that.

    Hope I've been of help. :)
