xbox360 optical out?

I might be being thick, but...

I have finally got my amp and speakers for surround sound, however i connect my xbox via HDMI and i can't see an optical out anywhere, the only way i can connect it with an optical is with the component cable, which seems a lot worse than it was with the HDMI.

What am i missing?

you need a special lead that comes with the official hdmi lead, it has an optical out on it

looks like this:

The hdmi cable only carrys the sound to the tv, you need the extra cable for the optical out
