XBOX 360 HDMI to DVI How do I get sound?

I know there is lot of people with a lot of knowledge here which is why I thought I am sure someone has had this problem or at least would know how to fix it.

Yesterday I connected my XBOX 360 to my TV which is one of the early LCD models which does not have a HDMI port.

Instead I have a DVI and a VGA ports and for the sound it has a 3.5mm Audio In port which it fine.

I know I could get one of the XBOX 360 VGA cable which has the VGA output and two RCA for the sound so with a simple adapter from RCA to 3.5mm it would work. But I rather use the HDMI to DVI cable and whatever solution I find for the XBOX 360 I could do the same or something similar for the PS3.

But I already have a HDMI to DVI cable which I use sometimes for my laptop. So I do not want to spend a lot on this, I just want to know how to do it.

The problem that I have is that the HDMI to DVI cable has no AUDIO cable and the XBOX 360 has not got any audio output which I could use to put into my 3.5mm input port.

The cable works and it looks brilliant the XBOX 360 output at 720p looks very good so I am happy with that so now I only need sound.

So any ideas of what can I do to get sound? Any way I could get a HDMI to DVI and 3,5 mm cable or something like that.

I also thought about trying to hear the XBOX 360 on my headset but I can not get it to work, any idead if I could do this ?

Ideally I would like to get it working with this cable

Thanks in advance for any advice and your time

you could buy this

but would probally be better just doing this.

im gonna do this so i can get optical out of my hdmi connected xbox although think ill buy a cheap cable off ebay to do it to
This is what you need, I don't know where to buy one, it is included with the Xbox 360 Elite.
Audio adapter cable connector to the AV port.
I use it for external 5.1 and HDMI to LCD (Audio Muted) :thumbsup:
Thanks guys for all the info, well I have to say that removing the part of the plastic on the Av cable sound a bit annoying but in the other hand I am not really using that cable so why not.

Specially this is only going to be for that one odd occasion in which I wnat to connect my XBOX in that TV, most of the time the XBOX is plugged in the other TV which does have HDMI port.

But why can I not get the sound in the Headset I just don't get it.

I am going to try the PS3 with the same cable and see if the sound works with the Bluetooth headset which I am sure it will. The only annoying thing about the PS3 is that resetting the output is a bit of a pain. I have to keep pressing the power button ramdomly and hope that it works.

Why can it not be straight forward????
