hihi,

So i have one of these (item 1)

http://artsea.org/images/xboxcab.jpg

and one of these (item 2)

http://technabob.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2007/06/xbox_360_fan_ports.jpg

But i can't plug item 1 into item 2 as the AV port on the 360 is is being used by item 2.

What are my options? anyone using one of these cooling fans?

Nope, they're identical. The only difference is the colour of the plugs.

Get a normal component cable. Looks like the plugs on item two will take it.

What's the purpose of item 2, just more inputs/outputs?

If so, why no HDMI?

Component relates to the video signal, RCA is just a style of connector.

Purpose of Item 2 is it cools the xbox 360, as indicated by the thread title. It can also act a USB hub. Not sure why it doesn't have HDMI but you can't go wrong for $10 really.

"cuqestion" is just a cool way of spelling it, it looks good coupled with "cooling", that's all.

Yeah, but a layman doesn't really know there's a difference between a composite video signal and the RCA connectors used.

No, but if you look at the cables and sockets they are both round and the same size and even colour coded the same.

fixer f*** that cooling thing off, they draw more power and are more likely to make your machine f*** up from what i've heard. also it will solve your cable problm.

d0mino - The one in the picture is powered by USB. The dodgy ones use the 360's power connector.

Why do you need additional cooling?

Is it the whole !33+ pc thing with a gallion fans and lights to make it look like it goes faster?

ditch cooling console.
as long as your 360 has plenty of space around it and you don't flog it 24/7 you'll be right.
