Xbox 360 250 GB High Definition Compatibility

July 22nd, 2010

I got an interesting question a couple of days ago.  “Is the slim Xbox 360 compatible with generic HD cables?”

The answer is yes and no.  HD cables come in two flavors, component and HDMI.  If you look at the back of the Xbox 360 250 GB you will notice that there are no component cable connectors:

To output component HD you need to use the “Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable” because of the propietary connector above the HDMI connector.

Now if you are using HDMI then the answer is yes.  The Xbox 360 250 GB does support generic HD cables, this includes an HDMI cable and an optical out in case you need to connect to a reciever without HDMI.
