    Hi, I want to get the Xbox 360 VGA cable to play my 360 on an LCD. I see the MS VGA Cable has optical out with an optical cable.. I have a surround sound DVD player that has the surround speakers, a few years old but works great. I checked the back of it and it says "Optical In" but there is a strange plastic piece sticking out of the input, I'm not sure what it is. Is that where the 360 Optical cable would go? I can provide pics if requested.

    Thanks, Kevin

    That should be there to protect the optical input. Just yank it out. ;)

    LOL. I don't blame you. My motto has always been "better to ask than break an optical in." :)

    Oh and do yourself a favor by not wasting money on a "high-end" optical cable. MonoPrice is your friend.
