This special cable features a proprietary connector on one end that plugs into your Xbox console; the other end features high-quality component video and RCA stereo audio connections. Component video connections deliver a better-looking picture than either composite or S-video — experience Xbox's state-of-the-art game graphics the way they were meant to be seen!

Connections

XBOX Connection: The GameLink 400 cable has a 12-Pin male DIN connector on one end that connects to the XBOX console. The other end of the cable splits out to three Component Video and two Stereo Audio RCA male cables. The RCA Component Video connectors are labeled as follows: a green/yellow ,"Y" labeled connector; a blue/yellow "CB" labeled connector; and a red/yellow "CR" labeled connector. The Stereo RCA Audio cables are color-coded with "Monster Cable" logo labels: Red for Right and Blue for Left. On the the 12-Pin side, there is a Sub-mini stereo input which will allow you to hook your XBOX to a Dolby Digital/DTS receiver so you can upgrade your sound to Dolby Digital. Note: The cable you need for the Dolby Digital application is the Lightwave 100 X cable (119XLW100), which is sold separately.
