A50 Gen 2 setup on Xbox 360 E


What you will need:

  • A50 Headset
  • TxD
  • Xbox Live Controller cable, Xbox 360 controller and console
  • HDMI to HDMI Optical Converter or a TV with optical connection.

First, ensure the A50 Headset and TxD have the most recent firmware installed. Connect the A50 Headset to the TxD USB Port in order to update it on your PC.

The Xbox 360 E was designed without an Optical port that most companies including Astro use to receive sound from the Xbox 360. Since it has been designed without this, you have a couple of options.


Connect the TxD to your HDMI converter box or the back of your TV’s optical port. Here is an example of the HDMI converter box. Insert the TxD USB Power cable to the rear USB Port and connect the Optical cable either the HDMI converter box optical port, or the Optical port on the back of your TV.


Turn your A50s on and ensure they are paired to the TxD and game and voice balance on the left ear is at 50/50. You are now ready to use your A50s.
