    its not there as standard mate, you'll need to get hold of an advanced scart lead with optical out, cheapest they go for is about £10 i think, or about £25 for an official MS lead

    Apart from the 5.1 sound from your amp, once you change from the standard lead you will also notice a step up in picture quality as well, so well worth getting one imo.

    Got it today, incredible difference.
    The picture is significantly better and the sound has really come to life with Dolby Digital output! :thumbsup:

    I think that using the hi def kit the picture is amazing i.e just so sharp and night and day difference between the hi def kit and the standard leads that come with the xbox.
