Choosing the Right Spot for Your Xbox 360
How to Connect An Xbox 360 to Your TV
This is the back of the Xbox 360. The ports for the power cable, A/V cable, and ethernet cable are pretty easy to find. When you set up your Xbox 360, make sure it is in a well ventilated area that is free of dust. Dust and overheating are the two main causes of problems in electronics so choosing the right placement for your Xbox 360 is important.

This article is obviously about the old original "Fat" model of the Xbox 360, but if you are connecting an Xbox 360 Slim or the Xbox 360 E (the newest model that looks like the Xbox One), with component or composite cables, the steps are all the same.

Also, if your TV and Xbox 360 have HDMI, that is clearly the way to go and is simply a matter of connecting the single HDMI cable.
