I should mention that I am not too familiar with the audio coding/decoding process. I'm also looking at the Ceton Echo. I've submitted a question on Amazon for it asking if it does simultaneous audio broadcast through HDMI and optical. I don't mind paying for it if that's what I gotta do. Thanks again!
As to the Xbox question, if it is not a "Slim" version, the optical port is on the AV Cable you plug into the back of the 360.
