    Probably a stupid question but nevertheless i dont know the answer

    I have a Panasonic Plasma 42" PA20 an Xbox and a Pioneer DV990 surround system

    How do I wire the xbox to the DVD system so that I can here the X box through it rather than the rubbish tv speakers?

    Thank you in advance

    You need an advanced scart connection (usually about £20 from any gaming high street shops) which has an optical out connection on it.

    cheers for that

    does the scart hook into the X Box or the Home Cinema System?

    Scart should go straight to the screen for the best picture. If you have a US Xbox you should consider ordering the High Def component cable from dvdboxoffice.com

    The scart connects the Xbox to your plasma, and you then need a separate optical cable to link between the connector on the scart lead to your AV amp.
