Cant figure this out. I have an HDMI cable running from my ps3, to receiver, to HDTV and it works fine. Tried to do that same thing with my xbox and it wont work. I have a SHARP LCD with 2 hdmi inputs, and a Samsung AS720 surround sound system.
My reciever has two HDMI IN inputs, and one HDMI OUT outputs. So the two HDMI IN inputs would be occupied by the PS3 and Xbox. Is there any way I can get them both set up to use HDMI?
EDIT: So I found out I can get the Xbox to show a picture if I unplug the ps3 hdmi from input 1 of my reciever and put my the Xbox slot in that one

you can buy an attachment for this. it plugs into the old school port above the HDMI out on your xbox, and it is skinny enough so you can HDMI and have it at the same time.
It has two outlets, RCA left and right and an Optical out. Here is a pic, I picked myne up from ebay for like 5 bucks
they are called the xbox 360 Audio Adapter.
you are now aware, reps please.
