I have read as many threads as I can find about this so please bear with me. Hitachi 42pd3000 plasma is coming next week and I will be getting an un-modified Xbox for it. The 2 rgb scarts on the plasma will be taken up so I think I can use component cable to connect xbox and plasma, am I right? I have a home cinema amp that I would like to utilise to take advantage of dolby digital sound, can I just get an optical cable? I have read the threads about joint component and optical cables but these don't seem to be available for PAL xbox. Basically I just want to know if separate component cable and optical cables will be ok? Sorry for being a thicko but I am new to Xbox?
