HDMI and Optical


Prominent Member
I have just bought a new Home Cinema system, with Optical connection, and a lead to go with it, thinking I could connect my 360 Elite to it via optical, for surround.

Problem is I want to use the HDMI lead with the Elite 360 to my TV, but the AV Cable that I got with the Elite (one with the optical socket on it) wont fit into the socket when the HDMI cable is inserted, so how the heck am I supposed to get Digital Audio when HDMI cable is there, any ideas?
