    Using the apple VGA to DVI adaptor, surley the connection should be simple. Xbox 360 goes to Vga/DVI adaptor. Then using this

    the two DVI male connections (one from the VGA to DVI adptor and the other DVI from the actual screen) should connect meaning it should work should it not?

    No because its DVI Digital only, it doesnt support analogue at all, so no little dongle is going to get it working period.

    Just because you change the cable to dvi by adding on connectors, does not change the VGA analogue signal to Digital.


    This is what you need...

    This device will allow you to view youe 360 on a 20"/23"/30" cinema display
    There are alternatives which convert VGA to DVI too, but they cost around the same...
