Doesn't work with my Acer monitor - please consider this before buying.
on 9 January 2016
So here's what I intended to achieve with this product - I wanted to send HDMI video to my Acer monitor and take audio from the RCA into my speakers (which is what many people who bought this product are doing). Now as a few buyers have already pointed out, with this product if you put your monitor on standby, the entire Xbox will restart. I realise that this is likely a very specific circumstance, but the monitor I'm using is ALWAYS on standby until it starts receiving signal. This means that I'm stuck in an infinite loop whereby I turn my Xbox on, my monitor is receiving no signal, monitor stays on standby, Xbox restarts, monitor receives no signal, etc. I'm not 100% sure, but I assume that this is caused by the fact that the Xbox doesn't begin to send video until a second after it turns on (therefore my monitor never leaves standby mode and the Xbox repeatedly restarts). I have tried every combination of turning the monitor on after the Xbox, monitor before Xbox, un-plugging, plugging back in, but nothing works.
Two stars because I'm aware that this product works 99% of the time.
TL;DR: If your monitor requires signal to leave standby mode like mine, DO NOT buy this product.
