    Here? Right here? What about, say... over there?
    If I were to clip off the piece of plastic that blocks the hdmi port from my rca connector for my slim, could I plug in hdmi and rca, and get video out with both of them?

    Video... I don't think so.
    Audio, yes.

    Friend of mine also did it and it works.

    I tried this, but the RCA cable was still too thick, even after I cut off that tab. It SHOULD work, if your cord is thin enough.

    Would the audio come out of the rca or hdmi? I'm thinking of getting a headset, But a friend of mine has one and it only has rca input.

    If you want to split your video then get a RCA splitter.
    Idk if there's a HDMI splitter tbh...

    Edit: yes the audio comes from both RCA and HDMI.
    Just mute your telie then ;]

    Welcomes~

    Oh.
    The 360 of me mate reboots when he zaps from HDMI to telie channels or when he "reboots" the telie.

    Odd glitch but worth mentioning.

    Just switching from HDMI to regular telie channels.
    And when he turns the telie off and on again (whilst the 360 is still running)

    I have no idea if the same thing happens to you but meh.
    I'd still wanted to notify you on the subject.

    It's the way it's wired, most 3rd party audio breakout boxes suffer from it as well. The official Microsoft one does not. There is a fix for it, but I can't remember it at the moment (I think it's cutting a wire).

    IIRC, the one Monoprice sells also does not cause this issue.
