I just connect the white/red to the "aux" in my surround system, works good but not perfect

Can't you use an AV receiver that accepts HDMI audio?

the hdmi cable plays the sound through the tv.......my elite came with a adapter to conect to it which will allow you to play sound through a surrond sound system.

Yeah but you can connect the HDMI to an AV receiver which deals with your sound, and then connect the TV to the HDMI passthrough. But from what I gather, you need a receiver which can deal with HDMI audio, which is only the more recent ones. That way you wouldn't need the audio dongle.
