    Xbox 360 Original - HDMI Adapter?

    I've just brought an Xbox 360! Primarily it's for the kids (they want to play Minecraft), but as a secondary consideration it'll work as a media center and for Netflix etc.
    And for 43 it was a steal
    The only problem is, is that it is an original version with no HDMI and I'm going to have it in the office to get it ready for Christmas for them (Judging by the pictures I think it'll need a good clean first!).
    Anyway, as I've only got one monitor with a VGA port (and there are plenty of Xbox VGA adapters out there). What I would like is an Xbox 360 to HDMI converter, and I can't seem to find one.
    I think I'm suffering from search term fatigue. Can someone please point me in the right direction

    Does your TV have a component input (RGB,LR) as this is the best quality connection your can get on original 360's. Failing that probably best to see if you can do an Amazon search for a VGA/component to HDMI convertor?

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Neet%C2%AE-C...hdmi+converter

    From the comments that or something similar would probably do the trick.
    Yeh, my TV has the correct sockets, but my kids don't know I've got this and I'll be working on it in the office, hence the need for HDMI, so I can use my monitors.

    Still cheaper than buying an Xbox 360 with HDMI though (although not by much).

    TBH guys, I'm not too bothered about HDMI (especially at that price!!). I just needed an interface to connect to a monitor with.
    I think I'll just go with the 3.59 one from eBay: 1.5M Component HD AV VGA Monitor Cable Lead For XBOX360 | eBay
