I also have a second Xbox 360 that is connected to the receiver via HDMI. My intent was to connect both Xbox's to the receiver via HDMI then use the Optical out to the Turtle Beach receiver so I could use the headset with either game consoles. Right now using the one Xbox works great as I just mute the volumne on the receiver to kill the HDMI sound output and I get the sound via the headset through the Optical. But if I want to use my "offline" Xbox with a headset, I have to swap the cable to the other Xbox.
Is there a way to run both Xbox's via optical to the receiver and then use the Optical out to the turtle beach reciever and only use that when the headset is to be used. Standard sound from the Xbox's I want to use the HDMI connection. It's not a huge deal swapping the cable, but trying to streamline things as much as possible
Sorry about that, there was a typo in my post that made no since(corrected).
What I have is both HDMI and Optical connections between my VSX-32 and
my Dish 722 DVR (for example). In your input definitions you can assign both
HDMI and optical to an input. Then use your remote to select which will be used at the time.
When you select the optical for that input the optical output of the VSX-32 comes alive, which is connected to your headset.
Hopes this helps.
