not sure what a toslink cable is...
but to get 5.1 you need an optical cable or a coaxial audio output.
idk if the xbox has an optical out, assuming it does because it plays dvds though.
i know it wont have a coax out.
you can get an optical cable at walmart for like 20 bucks.

Yeah everything is working so far except that I don't have the D-sub cable yet, so I can't adjust stuff. Hopefully that will let me use the onscreen functions

Only thing I'm not liking is that I cannot get 2 channel sound out of a 3.5mm aux cord from my computer. Using the same connection with other speakers, I can get 2 channel sound, but not with this receiver. Weird...

Not a big deal really since all I use computer speakers for is youtube and the such... Just a random inconvenience.

I hate this stupid receiver... I recommend nobody else buys this

Can't get picture on my computer screen to change any settings since its all on screen instead of via buttons, plus theres NO video inputs in this thing.

What is your problem now? How come you can't get it to work? It is pretty simple... It is not a receiver- it is a HTB. It is not supposed to have inputs for video nor should it do switching. You didn't read that before you bought it? It is designed to run video from the internal DVD drive OR to play audio from it as well as the other audio input (optical). You can use your 360 or any other device just fine on it for audio- you split the signal of video to monitor and audio into this HTB unit. You can even use the USB to attach a Zune or ipod. If you wanted video switching then you should have listed that as a priority

Exactly- your monitor doesn't have composite in?

I am reading the reviews and opinions of the people that have bought this thing and still I see nothing but good words and praise. They love it. If you don't then return it I guess. Sounds like you really want a receiver.

BOING! Get this thing back up to the top. The Blu-ray thread can mix in here I think.
