I just picked up a new monitor, the “new evo monitor” the alienware optx aw2210. Hooked up my ps3 through HDMI, looks phenomenal and it has very low input lag (Tests I’ve seen show about 10 ms of lag, less than a frame.) Now here comes the dilemma…
This monitor only has a DVI input and 2 HDMI inputs. My ps3 is all set with HDMI,and I’d like to play my xbox 360 on it, but unfortunately I have an xbox 360 that is one of the older models, with no HDMI out. I do have a VGA cable for it, and a VGA to HDMI cable. I tried this, and the monitor does not recognize the signal, even when set to it’s native resolution.
My question is, is there any issues with using a VGA to DVI converter? It seems to be my only choice at the moment. I REALLY don’t want to have to upgrade to a newer 360 just for HDMI so any help would be appreciated.
I also figured this thread could be used for anything involving video signal converting.
