    Here's my setup. I have two monitors, one with a HDMI port. I plug my Xbox 360 into the HDMI port but since it doesn't have speakers I needed to hook up my computer speakers to it. So I did this:

    Basically busted open the shell so that the RCA connector will fit into the xbox. Then I plug those connectors, the red and white, into this

    And I use a female to female adapter to plug in my speakers.
    However sound only comes out of the left speaker. i plugged headphones in and got the same result. Ideas on why?

    Are you sure you bought a stereo adapter and not a mono adapter? Does the headphone jack on the cable you purchased have two black bands on it like the picture above, or just one black band?
