Xbox 360 slim with HDMI and Audio adapter – No display


I have a new Slim 360 and because I'm connecting to my monitor (which has no speakers or sound output), I need to use the HDMI for video and a RCA audio adapter for sound.

Here's the audio adapter I have.

As far as I can tell this should work just fine right? Well for some reason as soon as I plug in the audio cable, the picture on the screen turns black.

Does anyone know why this might happen? This is the only way I can get sound so I really need to figure this out.

The 'easiest' solution would be here. All in one solution to convert the audio to 3.5mm jack and a VGA (which your monitor should support - otherwise convert from there to DVI).
