I have my XBox 360 connected to my PC Monitor via HDMI. The problem is that my Acer S240HL monitor does not have any audio output of any kind.
I have already pulled the casing off of the original composite connector, thus I can connect both HDMI and composite at the same time (with a bit of tape to block the video circuit) I also have an adapter which converts the two male RCA audio outputs to a single female 3.5mm headphone socket.
This setup enables me to connect headphones/pc speakers to the xbox.
My problem is that the volume of the sound is too low to be usable.
I am pretty sure that some (all?) Turtle Beach models can use the RCA audio output with an adapter like this and presumably they work. So is it that the adapter is different from the standard composite connector that I am using, or that the headphones provide their own amplification.
If it is the latter, what can I add to my setup to amplify the output without having to spend a fortune?
Is there some easier way to get the sound to my pc speakers?
If amplification is the only way, is this the sort of thing that would work? (I envision connecting something like this between the RCA outputs and my headphones RCA -> amp -> RCA adapter -> Headphones)
