Ok, so I know this website mainly deals with PCs but I thought I'd post this here just incase anyone could help.

I bought a HDMI cable for my xbox ages ago. near enough when I first bought it and its worked fine. But today my xbox wouldnt start up. I switched it on and nothing happened. I was getting all the light come on on my controller (which isnt wireless) but no lights on the xbox. I took the cable out, blew in it, plugged it back in, left it for a while but nothing happens. I finally decided to check if the whole thing was broken and switched it to scart. As soon as I plugged the scart lead into the xbox (I hadnt even plugged the other end to the T.V.) It came to life. It started booting up and reading the disc and the controller came to life also. So i thought I would switch back to HD.... Switched the plugs over and nothing happened. It sounded like it was loading but the controller wasnt being read and I wasnt getting a signal on my T.V. I switched the whole lot off and tried again with the HD cable and now I'm back to square one.

It all works fine with the scart lead but HD just isnt working. Which I cant understand as I was playing it in HD last night and it worked fine. I find it hard to think that the cable has broken in a matter of hours with no-one touching it...

Any help with this as its doing my head in.

unfortunately no. We have other HDMI T.Vs but not the cables for them. My parents are cheap and dont want to pay for it :thumbsup:

EDIT:

I tried my wireless controllers with it aswell. If you press the little buttons on the xbox and the controller the two sync for abit but dont establish a connection. This is really starting to annoy me now. Is it a trick by microsoft? They dont include a HD cable and make you buy a separate one for 20-25 then after say 6 months the cable stops working so you have to buy another? Its pathetic. No-one and nothing would have even touched that cable and yet its just stopped working... I should have bought a PS3.

I'll start playing a game and the 360 just stops. I don't play Live, just against the CPU. One green light is on and doesn't flash. I 2 fans blowing on the console so I don't think it's a heat issue.
