    The above link shows the cables available for the 360 on release? None of these allow for 5.1 sound into your 5.1 system like an optical ouput.

    I am very worried as just got a new Pioneer 5.1 system which I cant see how I am going to get into my 360 now.

    The only spare port on my 5.1 system is the optical in (line 2) and on top of that my tv has no component so am going to need a scart lead. The advanced scart lead on the above site looks like the current one where the optical output is included in the lead which would be ideal.

    I would have thought it'll be like the current xbox AV cables, you'll supply the optical lead and plug it in to the xbox lead. It will have optical out don't worry about it.

    Infact, if you check Bigwilli's link above,
    gameplay have now added 5.1 to the description of the HD cables on their site too

    Why are people worying about this. Its definately going to have optical out in one shape or form. Its likely to be on the Av block as with the current xbox - plus the deluxe pack actually comes with this cable.
