    Right so two questions

    Is the VGA connection a male connection? (So I can plug straight into my monitor)

    and

    The audio connection comes with two phono plugs - does this include an adapter to take a standard speaker setup (i.e. so I can use my speakers with a 3.5mm stereo jack) or do I need another piece of kit to use my speakers?

    1.) The connector on the vga cable is female but it comes with a male-male adaptor.
    2.) Audio output is in the form of the 2 RCA cables, but it comes with a 3.5mm male adaptor.

    Its a male end actually.

    And the adapters are females. Males = Pins, females = Holes. Get it? :D

    If someone could verify that it actually does come with the adapters that'd be great. From what I've read, all you get is the cable. Which would suck a lot because my CRTs cable doesnt detach, so I'd have to hunt down a gender changer.

    I'm intrigued what's in the little green bag I have to say - it's this darned audio connection that's got me baffled right now. I have a converter to take it to a 3.5mm (1/8th) male jack but that's no good for pluggng a set of speakers into obviously...hmmm.

    You need an RCA Female to 3.5mm Female adapter. You should be able to pick one up from Wal-Mart or Radio Shack for a few bucks . If you can't find one of those, use an RCA Male to 3.5mm Female adapter with the RCA Couplers to connect the XBox to the Adapter

    Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

    Because my "TV" is really a 27" CRT computer monitor that does 800x600 with a HTPC with a TV tuner, so I can just plug my 360 when I get it into my VGA switchbox alongside the computer and my Dreamcast.

    I am guessing the VGA converter. An earlier poster said it comes with one.
