    Can anyone give advice on how to hook up my XBox to my Sony DAVS550 home cinema system to allow 5.1 sound?

    You will need to buy the XBOX Video connector with the Optical output box on it. Then plug that into the digital input of your DAV, im pretty sure that has optical in on it. Anyone confirm that.

    Ive just connected my Xbox to my Davs888 and playing Medal of Honour - Rising Sun in 5.1 is the bee's knee's. When someone is talking to your character and you turn him around, the voice goes round the speaker's. :thumbsup:
