I gave my old Sammy DLP to my nephew when I bought a new Mits. The Sammy does not have HDMI (one reason I replaced it). My nephew has an Xbox 360. I gave him the HDMI -> DVI cable I was using, but then he has no way to get audio to the TV since it doesn't have an optical input and there is a tab that sticks out from the standard Xbox composite dongle that blocks the HDMI port. Is there an optional dongle that does not have that tab? Or are we better off getting a TosLink -> RCA adapter from monoprice and hooking that to the RCA stereo inputs on the TV?

Friends have had luck with this: http://www.monoprice...&seq=1&format=2

Edit: You can also perform surgery on the plastic cover, which several people I know have done with no ill effects other than it looking kind of ugly.

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.
