  1. I recently bought a hdmi-dvi cable to connect my xbox360 to my monitor. I have a cheep set of speakers, not ideal but the best I have, and I decided to try and connect them to the monitor for sound. Nothing happened. Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this problem. Thanks.

    Both ends will have to be native HDMI for sound to transmit. DVI doesn't carry sound.

    Description is wrong then. Once you hit DVI (Digital Visual Interface) you lose the audio.

    you need to connect the AV cable to your speaker instead of connecting the speaker into the monitor (since you're using DVI). but the problem is the AV cable by default has a protective 'lid' that will close the HDMI port as well. so if you insist on it you're gonna have to cut that 'lid' so you can plug the HDMI and av cable together.
