360, hdmi, and digital sound.
So, MY 360 has an HDMI port. Would love to use it, except the awesome MS Marketing decided that the other critical plug I need, the HD component octopus cable w/ the digital sound out, would block the HDMI port.
So I'm running component to my TV. Which is perfectly fine. But, the component cables are JUST long enough. So close that I cannot move the xbox anymore. I have a 10ft HDMI cable that would give enough slack.
I definitely don't want to spend 50$ on a MS HDMI cable, all I really want is the smaller sound adapter that ships in the HDMI kit from MS. I've seen writeups on using a dremmel to alter the component plug to make enough room. Are there any alternatives?
