Your receiver does audio over HDMI. This means you can use any HDMI cable (monoprice.com!), and get audio+video to your receiver. Then the receiver will pass the video out to your display. The audio quality compared between the 360's HDMI connection and optical is exactly
the same. It is the same DD5.1 bitstream coming out of the Xbox, either way.
Yes, HDMI is capable of different audio types than optical/coax supports, but none of those are used on the 360.
Wow, you are a douchebag. Nothing you said disagrees in any way with what I said. All I did was offer other information above and beyond what he was looking for.
Yes, the receiver does audio over HDMI, and in the case of the 360 it's identical. I
use the dongle because I
have a 35ms delay from my BD player to my TV through MY
receiver, and wanted to avoid the chance of delay with the Xbox.
I even use monoprice cables. Go figure.
