    Hi all, just ordered myself a nice new Sony cinema kit, however all I have is an unofficial optical cable I got with a 3rd party VGA cable last year. I was thinking of getting a decent cable to connect my cinema kit to my 360, could anyone recommend me a cable to use so I can enjoy 5.1 surround via my 360. Thanks.

    Get yourself a Microsoft official VGA cable and a toslink cable.
    Remember, to 99.99% of people (anal aside), optical is merely light - 1 or 0 - there or not, I really can't see why people should be speding more than £5.00 for one.
