All in one PC Monitor?

Postby Furzball » December 30th, 2012, 2:06 pm

I was looking at my all in one Desktop while moving around my room. The screen is connected via HDMI. I was curious, since the PC also has a VGA out port, if I could run computing tasks on a different screen while running xbox games using hdmi connection to this PC? Will the fact that the monitor is a touch screen bug out the xbox 360? Thanks for any info :D

Just try it out you can't break anything here. Usually you can choose the main monitor in the video settings of the operating system, so just connect a monitor on the vga port, it should be detected and then you can configure your computer to only use the external monitor.
I don't think the xbox will notice the touch interface.

Well it works, except no sound. So will try and figure that out. Hoping to find a HDMI KVM so I can switch between the xbox and PC.

Edit: found Madcatz headset adaptor at best buy. Now I have my wireless headset, and bigger hdmi screen to go with my Xbox 360. Plus my PC to go online with.
