The Microsoft XBox Headset has one little speaker so you'd have to convert all those sounds to mono.
Seems a shame to lose all that detail.
I'm having trouble getting my sound to come through my xbox headset. I have a Series 5 Samsung TV.
I currently have an HDMI connected from my XBOX to my TV. There is then 2 possible set ups for where I place the 2 red/white pins. This is either in the back of the TV or in an AV adapter which plugs into the back of the xbox which was a recommended solution.
While both of these should work in theory, the best I get is the sound from the TV output through the headset and not from the XBOX which is in HDMI1/DVI.
If I try SCART leads only I get sound fine but then there is the issue that the quality is not HD and is very fuzzy.
Is there a way I can combine the sound of the SCART with the HDMI visual output or just a way to set sound to be output via HDMI and not from the TV source.
Sorry I should have clarified. I am using a Turtle Beach X12 headset which is not an official xbox headset.It connects to the xbox via usb and has a green pin which connects to a green plug which has the red/white pins on the other end. These pins go into the TV/AV adapter.
The plain Microsoft Xbox Headset only plugs into the controller and has no cables for game sound.
My model number is UE32EH5000KXXU.
Both of the set ups are the ones I have described. As I say the sound is coming from the TV source, not the HDMI/DVI source when trying both of these.
The composite video is the SCARTS where the sound works but then there is the issue of visual quality.
The HDMI set up I have used and also an alternative where rather than the AV adapter shown above the HDMI, I plugged the red/white pins directly into the tv. The results are the same. TV source and not HDMI.
After reading the manual for the TV at http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/tv-audio-video/television/led-tv/UE32EH5000KXXU-support I see the RCA jacks are inputs to the TV.
Specifically page 6 of http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/EM/201208/20120801173612218/%5BUEH5000-XU%5DBN68-03955B-06Eng-0727.pdf shows the RCA to be audio inputs to the TV so can you share why you think that would work?
Wouldn't you use the headphone jack and maybe some adapter? And even then, you may have to find support for that but that's the connection I'd use.
I was under the impression that the RCA jacks as you say were both input and output, at least that what I was told by samsung support.
As for what to do I'm lost. I'm no expert with these connections/plugs ,but I got the one adapter that was recommended by the headset manufacturer and could find nothing else. Others seemed to have a similar problem with laptops etc ,but their solution of editing the source name did not work for me. This is just a last ditch effort as I've tried everything I could find for this.
And have them tell you again the RCA jack on the TV is an output. It's true we connect the RCA output of a device to the RCA input on the TV so I guess some folk could lose track of the ins and outs and think they are both. But wait!! They are!!!
You bring up a good point. That is, must the industry create a new system where there is no possibility that you could hook it up wrong where there is no possibility that you could hook it up wrong where there is no possibility that you could hook it up wrong ???
It appears to me that you didn't find the first ditch. That is, the headphone jack.
The headphone jack? You mean the single port which has the headphones over it(sounds obvious I know but bare with me).
I assume plugging the green plug that is used for the audio into this headphone jack may work, but if that is the case then there is the issue that it is a short cable and not possible to connect the usb into the xbox and be able to stretch the jack into the headphone port.
I guess its just a matter of the headset isn't built to be used in this particular set up?
Sorry just as I am replying I see your next post.
Thank you very much for the help, I greatly appreciate it!
I'll get one of those and connect it to the headphone jack as you suggest. I do agree that this could be clearer since neither xbox,the headset or tv manufacturer was able to suggest this before hand.
Thank you for all of your help!
