    Just bought an Xbox and would appreciate any advice on how to connect to my DAVS550 in order to take advantage of 5.1 sound.

    Hi Scotia, have the same setup. You need to purchase the official MS Scart lead as this has the optical output connector, then purchase a digital optical lead. Connect this all up and set the Sony to 'Video 2' and you will get Xbox sound in Dolby Digital (you may have to enable DD on Xbox dashboard, long time since i did it).

    If you plug the Scart into an RGB capable socket on your TV you will also get a much improved picture over the standard lead in the box of the Xbox.
