    Hi, I have just hooked up a set of Logitech Z-5500 speakers to the S/PDIF output of my Philips 26PF5520D LCD tele. The sound works fine when I am watching digital tv and listening to DAB radio, but when I turn on my Xbox 360 (which is connected in hd to the tele via component) I get no sound. The output is set to Dolby Digital 5.1 but still nothing... anyone got any ideas how to get my digital sound back?!

    You need to connect the optical output from the 360 to your speakers. The 3 component cables only carry the picture, not audio.
