I have a 360 that uses a HDMI cable, but also have a turtle beach headset that needs to plug into the audio part of the 360 to listen to the game through the headset, what do I need to get this to work? Do I need to buy a set of cables for just the audio? If so, what cables do I need? I already know the normal 360 HD cables won't work since the plug is too big for the console.
Sorry about the severe off topic nature of this question, but you guys seem to be the perfect hivemind to ask.
Actually it's ridiculously easy to strip the casing of the component/optical so that HDMI can plug in the same time. There's a youtube video somewhere. Took me a minute and without the bulky casing, you can plug in both, and get HDMI and optical Depending on your headphones, you can also use the optical out on your TV, but that's a whole another can of worms because you won't get the full 5.1/7.1 whatever because TVs only can output stereo, not to mention some TVs won't even strip the sound from the HDMI signal to output.
Cable isn't expensive, but this method is free.
