Before we get down to the core issue let me briefly explain what an x rocker is and what it does?
Now, most of the gamer community would already know this but the novices out there might find it useful.
X rocker gaming chairs help you to experience the sound in an immersive manner. They allow you not to just sit in your chair but put you right in the action.
Not only this, but they also provide a high level of comfort for prolonged gaming sessions. They work on high-fidelity Audio Frequency Modulation.
But what do you do when you save up and then finally get this beauty only to find out that it doesn’t work out of the box?
It can be one of the most frustrating experiences that a gamer can ever have. Buying something he really likes and then getting home and finding out that he can’t start using it straight away. Well not to worry. If you have recently bought an x rocker gaming chair and experienced this dilemma, we have got you covered.
You have come to the right place. After having gone through the article you will be better equipped to tackle this problem. Although, at first you might get frustrated easily but just remember that there is an easy fix to this problem and soon you will be rocking away in your new x rocker.
There is a downside to it though and that is you will have to buy another device to make it compliant with your gaming console. But this is not that big of a downside because the good news is that it is easily available and what do you know, it does not cost a lot.
Hurrah, for you, won’t have to break the bank on this. You will be able to buy it anywhere at a fair price. Without further delay, we will quickly outline the problem and present you with hopefully a solution that works for you. So get ready and here we go……!!
Well, the problem arises because of the fast pace with which technology is changing.
The pace of change in technology is hard to match. The ever-growing need for better and faster systems is pushing the industry to come up with innovative solutions faster than ever.
The same change in technology is causing this issue for you. As TVs evolved to provide surround sound and digital display the consoles also had to evolve. Behold the HDMI makes its entry into the gaming industry.
For those of you who are not familiar with it, HDMI stands for high definition multimedia interface. It has been designed with providing an all-in-one cable solution to your surround sound and digital media requirements.
And believe me, it is a great convenience as compared to handling all those cables of the past. The old stereo connectors just couldn’t do the job anymore. But unfortunately for us, the x rocker gaming chairs (most versions) are still coming with the old RCA stereo connectors.
Hence, the problem of compatibility arises. The reason for keeping the old connectors is that it affords x rocker gaming chairs interoperability across maximum gaming platform.
It might not have been an issue at all if some of the gaming consoles hadn’t completely done away with the old connector slots at the back of the consoles.
While some chose to just add in the HDMI port in addition to the already existing ports, some chose to completely do away with the old connector types. These are the consoles that will give you a headache.
So, this is what is needed…
The Way out
As I have already stated above that all you need to solve this issue is, an additional component called an HDMI convertor or an HDMI audio extractor.
What this device does may seem complicated at first but let me try and break it down for you.
It simply covers the digital audio signal that it gets from the HDMI and converts it into the analog stereo RCA connectors that you can connect with your x rocker gaming chair.
But at the same moment, it sends the digital video signal from your HDMI to another port so that you can still enjoy the high-quality video output. This way you can get the best of both worlds.
So first of all you need to connect the HDMI cable from your console to the convertor. Second, you need to connect the other HDMI cable with the TV. And the RCA connector cables to your x rocker gaming chair.
I hope it makes sense.
The Lingering question
Still, some of you might have a query in your mind. And that may be the question of whether your console is already compatible with the X rocker gaming chair or do you need to go for this additional piece of hardware. You might be thinking:
- Does the X rocker work with the PlayStation family of consoles?
- Or what about the Nintendo series?
- And last but not the least, does the X rocker work with the numerous X box consoles out there in the market?
Following is a list of the modern consoles available in the market today and if they work with X rocker straightaway or need the extra adaptor?

We really hope that we have been able to put your mind at ease and given you the information needed to start rocking in your brand new x rocker gaming chair.
