There are hundreds of gaming consoles, that every gamer wanna test and try. But there are only a few popular ones, that probably each gaming user had tired or still wanna experience it.
And Xbox One from Microsoft is one such gaming console that was a massive hit during the early 2010s and still in this another decade, users are using it to feel that great gaming experience.
However, there could be one thing that might interrupt the gaming fever, and it might be the connection between the console to the tv monitor.
You got only one option to connect your Xbox One to the monitor, and it’s using the HDMI connectivity. But what if your tv monitor doesn’t have the HDMI input port, and you still wanna hook up your Xbox One to that old monitor.
Are there any options left to make it happen? well, a big yes! Whether your tv has HDMI or not, your TV still has got analog connections and this can be used as a signal to boot up your Xbox One in a big video format.
So let’s what you’ve got and how you gonna make the connection…
What Is Required To Connect Xbox One To TV Monitor & What You Should Know About HDMI Converters
HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface, which somehow hints about why it’s required when it comes to connecting any console to tv monitors. These HDMI cables are enough capable of transmitting audio & video signals and thus called the ‘digital replacement of analog receivers‘.
If we turn ourselves back in about a decade, then we might see those red, yellow, and white cables (red/white for audio signal & yellow for the video signal), and these were the av receivers used to transmit audio/video into a tv monitor.
And using these composite av receivers, they still can be used as a source to convert the signals. However, to make it work, you must need signal converters to hook up your Xbox One with the monitor.
And the type of conversation depends upon what connecting options your tv has, let’s say it is only loaded with those red, white and yellow ports then you must need an HDMI to AV converter. In the case of only DVI or VGA input, HDMI to VGA/DVI converter is required.
Now I guess you’ve known what you gonna need to fire the connection between the receiver and monitor. So now it’s time to know how you can connect the Xbox one with tv monitor with these converters.
How To Connect Xbox One To TV Monitor
Now as we discussed earlier, you must need a convertor to transmit the av signals, and here we are taking as an assumption that your tv has av receiver ports (coz, nearly every tv has it) and you wanna connect with your Xbox one. So keeping this in mind, the following procedure can be followed.
- Grab the AV cables, and plug it in one side of the cables to your TV and the other to that mini converter
- Now Connect the HDMI cable to the HDMI OUT port at the rear portion of the Xbox One.
- The other end of the HDMI cable goes in the HDMI input of your convertor.
- Power up the mini converter with a USB cable and Switch it to NTSC
Getting the nostalgiac moment has some different kinds of emotions which cannot be expressed in words. And gamers can easily relate their gaming emotion with the Xbox One, which is currently not used much due to the upgraded versions of it.
Well, to keep the fever alive, this tutorial has got some working methods which you just read a minute ago.
I hope the issue of connecting the Xbox one to tv monitor without using HDMI cables, has been solved completely.
