I was just wondering how I could somehow convert my xbox 360 to play on my PC monitor instead of my piece of junk Orion TV. Currently I can share vids and pics via my Media Center hook up with my 360 but I want to totally bring it over to my desk and plug it in there. I'm just not sure if I need special cables or I can do it wireless just like I can with Media Center while still easily being able to switch back to playing computer (hopefully simply by shutting down my 360).

Thanks a lot guys.

Quick response thanks a lot! Just one question: Where do those red and white things connect to? I assume the part that is not showing is the plug that goes to my xbox and the one that is flat goes into my monitor in back right?

The red and white cables are audio. Either plug them into your TV or use an adapter like this to connect them to your PC speakers: Amazon.com: 2 x RCA Female / 1 x 3.5mm Mono Female Adapter: Electronics

Ok let me get this straight. I buy that AVG thing. Then I hook the flat piece into the monitor in back where it says Input 2 DVI-D? There is a place back there that says Audio but its only one circular slot and its like a pale greenish color. My speakers are built into the monitor.

You put the flat thing into the VGA socket. It's probably input 1, if input 2 is DVI. If you use your monitor's built in speakers, then buy one of these adapters instead of the one I posted earlier: Amazon.com: 6IN Audio Y Cable 3.5MM Stereo Plug/m To 2X Rca Jack/f: Electronics
