Hmmm... new to this and may have answered my own question. I did just look up the spdif that is in the back of the xbox.. is that where i plug in the optical cord from surround sound?!?!?!
Your making this harder than it is. The 5.1/7.1 surround is in the HDMI cable you don't need any other connections. This is assuming your stereo supports video and audio on HDMI.
