Xbox 360 Video Pinout Updated

  03/05/06 Documentation Update Submitted by Peter Tribe - "I have created the attached documentation for creating a xbox 360 to VGA connector based upon soflife’s blog (http://softlife.blogspot.com/2005/11/xbox-360-on-viagra-vga.html ). I created this version of to be inline with the XBOX 360 Motherboard Headers and Connector V1.4 documentation (http://dwl.xbox-scene.com/tutorial/Xbox_360-HandC-V1_4.pdf) as it appeared that some confusion was being caused by how the pins were numbered differently."

Xbox 360 on ViaGrA (VGA)

Since getting the xbox 360, I've had it hooked up to my old 27" RCA standard def TV. I believe the TV model is an RCA Crapola.

So I undertook to hook it up to a computer monitor (a 21" Samtron) where at least I could get some decent resolution.

I took the cable that came with the Xbox360 and spliced it to an old VGA extender cable I had laying around.

here's the pic of the Xbox360 pinouts:

(note: my photoshop skills sucketh)

armed with the the pinouts, you can easily connect the Xbox360 the your computer monitor.
