Connecting XBOX 360 to M17x R3 w/ through HDMI input....

triticoj

I am trying to connect my XBOX 360 to my rig, through HDMI. I have a HDMI cord, connected from the XBOX output to my rig's HDMI input. I am not sure if this is a plug and play situation or if I need a third party program or software.

Nah it's plug and play mate, you don't need any kind of third party software. IMG-20120321-00158.jpg Although, sorry to tell you but I heard numbers of people saying they're having problems with their HDMI-In with NVidia GPU...

Interesting.... So what happens when you plug it in? Does your screen automatically open some virtual window to use it? Thanks for the picture. Nice rig and color scheme by the way. My NVIDIA drivers are up to date. Do you think the HDMI could have be non functional and need, therefore, to be replaced?

When I plug it in, there's a message on the screen saying "HDMI-In detected" and about 5 seconds after that the screen immediately displaying the display output from my PS3 (just like if you plug it to any monitor/ TV). There's no virtual window appearing.

Sadly, I have no idea about this.

I tried that many times and it didn't work, but now it has starting working even though I have restarted it five times. I actually re-downloaded and re-installed the NVIDIA driver... That must have done it. Thanks for your help as always man.
