Xbox 360 Microsoft HDMI and Audio Cable

I've recently bought a 360 Premium v2 with an HDMI out, but I cannot figure how to connect the audio.

I assume I need the official MS HDMI cable, but they don't seem to be out in this country.

When will it be released here?

Buy a cheap HDMI cable (from ebay or wherever).

Take your component cable and pop the case off it, plug that in for the optical output of audio. http://www.chadledford.com/?p=50

Pat yourself on the back for saving yourself a wedge of cash!

I've done this and works a treat!

Thanks for the link, looks like I will have to do that.

Annoying that the cable isn't out here though.

You sometimes see the optical dongle which comes with the HDMI cable/elite on ebay - goes for about £15....
