    I suggest you use Video input and how is Xbox connect to TV some cables have a breakout section with red and white phono sockets so you can connect to a stereo/AMP or buy one with suitable connections.

    ive connected the xbox cables to a scart module thing, and then the scart module thing goes into my tv.
    so shall i just go the shop and ask for a red and white phono lead then?

    its okay, ive figured it out now.

    just incase for future reference for any of you other guys trying to connect your xbox to a hifi, just get an extension cable for the red and white cable, one side is male and one side is female. thats it.
