Another Elite audio connection question!

Apologies if wrong thread! Please move as appropiate mods...

Ok I have a 46w2000, A 830W Surround System and an Xbox Elite, and Sky HD.

Problem I am having is with sound. I have the DVD system connected via HDMI, and when watching DVD's etc the sound comes through the surround system.
I have Sky HD connected to the TV via HDMI, and a digital optical connecting the Sky box to the Surround system which then gives me surrround sound once the surround sytem it set to tv/sat.
Now I have a Xbox Elite, which is also HDMI. As I dont have spare ports on the TV I have connected it using the supplied component cable.

But the problem now is that I am unable to get sound via the surround system. The only way so far that I have achieved it is by unplugging the opticcal from the sky box, and plugging it into the optical input on the xbox cable.

Question is...Is there another way that I can achieve surround sound via the surround system from the Xbox without having to unplug the optical cable each time I want to play on the console. Also, are there any other ways of connecting the Sky box except hdmi to achieve th hd output?

Hope the above sounds ok! Noob here lol

Any advice greatly appreciated!
