Hello guys.

I am planning to purchase a Xbox360 but first there is something that I require assistance with.

Monitor : Dell U2412M (DisplayPort, DVI-D, VGA)
HT Receiver: Niro Nakamichi two 6.1 (NO HDMI [Only S/PDIF / Optical])


As of the moment, My desktop is connected to my monitor via a DVI-D-to-HDMI adapter. This leaves the VGA slot and DisplayPort slot open. My Desktop has only 1 HDMI output (NO VGA / DVI-D) so I cannot substitute it.

Now I know I would have to get a HDMI Switch. However, there is another issue.

How do I connect the XBOX360 to my monitor via HDMI (Through the switch of course) and then the sound would be output via optical out to my receiver?

I found a device that might do it:

However, The HDMI is at the output and DVI is at the input. The description says it works for xbox360, PS3 etc.

Is this the one that I need or would i need a HDMI Input and DVI Output?

The normal 360 S that you'll find new in stores has optical out on the back of it. Optical to the receiver. HDMI from the 360 and PC to a cheap $20 auto-sensing HDMI switchbox. HDMI-to-DVI cable from switch to monitor.

No converter needed.
