    There is an optical out on the official MS hidef pack . I think it may be possible to rig up a coax digital out (possibly seen somewhere on xbox-scene).But I'm not sure about an optical out

    According to here the unit has optical audio out on it :smashin:

    I must say it seems an expensive route for getting HD when the Component HD pack is only around £16 from here.

    The official HD pack is superb and gives a cracking picture when fed through my Z3. HD material looks fantastic and I can't wait for my 360 to arrive :clap: :clap: .
