    Hi Guys,

    I've just read the spec on the Xbox 360 and notice that it only has an optical output for sending 5.1 info. My philips HTS3500S system only has a Digital Coaxial input for external devices!! Does this mean no surround for me??? can you get a converter?

    Cheers,
    Morbius

    Oh ****, thats awesome i never knew about those. My philips 5.1 system i got with my dvd player which is awesome, but theres no optical so i bought some cheap 5.1 speakers for £50 which i now have in my bedroom, so this item would be ideal for when i move my 360 downstairs to play on the widescreen. so chuffed :)
