    I'm getting an xbox 360 slim. Going to connect it to my satellite speaker system + monitor.

    All ports on the monitor are female: DVI, 3.5mm stereo (the monitor has built in speakers that i don't use)

    Speaker system has the following female:
    red and white rca "auxillary"
    and male: 3.5mm stereo plug


    and xbox ports (all female): USB, Audio/Video (AV), HDMI, and optical audi out.

    i want to connect the monitor as well as the separate speakers to the xbox.

    i have a fully male DVI to HDMI cable that i connect to my laptop's HDMI port.

    I heard that you can't connect the A/V and the HDMI cables both to the xbox at the same time, either because it won't work, or it doesn't fit.. don't know which.

    Which cables do I need? Could you give me some links?
    I don't know if this means anything but the quality is good coming from my laptop outputting to my speakers via a 3.5mm.

    XBOX Ports.

    I saw that RCA-AV cable you posted, but how do i connect the RCA part to my speaker system? The speaker system has female holes where you put male rca plugs in... yet said adapter also has female holes where you plug male rca plugs in...
    im confused
    here's the back of my subwoofer. the right satellite speaker that connects to this has a 3.5mm plug that i plug into my pc, ipod, etc

    Thanks! just to make sure before I order everything, i'll show you my set up will be.

    xbox connected to an 1080p monitor using a hdmi plugged into the xbox to a dvi plugged into the monitor

    xbox connected to this:

    which connects to the RCA jacks on my subwoofer.
