Just what I was looking for – Optical Audio Adapter for Xbox 360 (15cm-Length) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It works fine!. Nearly the same as the original product.
Cons:
As you touch it its perfectly clear that this product is an issue. The console reboots everytime you plug it in, but also every time that you change your TV mode to HDMI where the console is connected. I know this because I use the same TV with my computer and a multimedia player, and each time I change from XBOX to PC and then back (for example to see a walkthrough of a game) I get a reboot.
Other:
Great if you need to get audio separatedly from the HDMI cable and you don't want to pay the original product much more expensive.
Bottomline:
I was tired of hearing my XBOX audio from the TV stereo speakers. Now I use it with a 5.1 speakers set without digital input, but able to convert the stereo input to virtual dolby surround. The sound experience is just great! At least until I change my home cinema or get an A/V Receiver.
