I want to connect my xBox 360 Premium (Connections can be seen at the link below) To my 5.1 channel surround sound system. I want to make use of the full set i.e. I want to use all five channels (not mix front and rear).

Is this possible and will the xBox use full Dolby digital surround sound for DVD's and Games?

    Accepted Solution

    You can get an AV cable that outputs optical 5.1 audio and component video
    This feeds your 5.1 amp.
    It will also carry 5.1 Dolby Surround.
