By Kefa Olang ; Updated September 15, 2017

An Xbox 360 gaming console supports different cable connections depending on how you want to output the content. The gaming device outputs in hi-definition and standard-definition which allows you to play games and videos in high or low resolutions. Panasonic Viera TC-PVT25 includes many different ports for gaming connections. Connecting your game to your Panasonic TV using any one of these supported connections takes minutes to complete.

Using Xbox 360 HDMI Cable

Connect one end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the back of your Xbox 360, and then connect the other end into an open "HDMI Input" on your Panasonic Viera TC-PVT25.

Turn on your TV and gaming console.

Press the "Input" button on your remote to select the HDMI channel your game is connected to.

Using Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable

Locate the switch on the A/V connector on the cable and set it to the "HDTV" or "TV" position depending on whether you want to output in hi-definition or standard-definition.

Connect the A/V connector on the cable to the A/V connector on the back of your gaming console.

Connect the HD A/V pins on the cable to the color input jacks on your TV. The pins are color-coded, so match them to the color-coded pins on your TV. Do not connect the yellow RCA composite pin if you're using a hi-definition TV.

Turn on your TV and gaming console, and then press the "Input" button on your remote to select the input channel your game is connected to.

Using Xbox 360 VGA HD AV Cable

Connect the A/V connector on the HD AV cable into the A/V port on the back of your gaming console.

Connect the VGA connector on the cable to the VGA port on your TV, and then connect the red and white pins on the cable to the audio connectors on your TV.

Turn on your TV and gaming console, and then press the "Input" button on your remote to select the input channel your game is connected to.

Using Xbox 360 Composite AV Cable

Connect the A/V connector on the cable to the A/V port on your gaming console.

Connect the color-coded pins on the cable to the color-coded ports on your TV. Yellow is for video, and then red and white pins are for audio connections.

Turn on your TV and gaming console, and then press the "Input" button on your remote to select the input channel your game is connected to.
