    360 and HDMI cables Question

    Ive seen bits and pices about hdmi cables needing separate sound and such.
    when i hook up an Xbox 360 to a HDTV wouldi need any other cable apart from the HDMI cable?

    No. all you need is one HDMI cable connecting the 360 to the TV.

    You can use a separate optical audio cable if you want the surround sound, but it's not mandatory

    The microsoft hdmi cable comes with a separate cable for sound which you may have heard about. This is better for surround sound units, etc. I had heard about a slight delay in the sound on HDTV's of a couple of seconds but haven't had this myself.
