I dont know if anyone can help with this but.... I have got a jvc surround system which is connected to my xbox with a digital optical cable. When i watch films i get full 5.1 surround (all the speakers are lit up on the display and the cable is fine). however when i select 5.1 output in the dashboard settings i hear nothing at all on any of my games. I can select stereo which then 2 speakers light up with dolby digital 2 and i do have sound from all speakers but not 5.1.
Is my receiver up the pictures? or have i missed a setting somwhere

The only way to get Dolby 5.1 audio out of the Xbox will be via fiber optic cable from the Xbox to a Dolby Digital amplifier - which will output a decoded 5.1 signal to a 6 channel amplifier and 5 speakers and one sub-woofer. I doubt the Logitech speaker system has a Dolby 5.1 decoder built in with the amplifier for under $100, but I can't say for sure. If the Logitech has a an optical (or TOSLink) input, connect it to the Xbox and follow the instructions below.
To configure your audio settings, follow these steps:
Start the Xbox 360 console without a disc in the disc tray.
In the System section of the Xbox Dashboard, select Console Settings.
In the Console Settings area, select Audio.
In the Audio Settings area, configure settings for analog output or digital output:
Analog output settings:
Dolby Pro Logic II: Select this setting for stereo systems or Dolby Pro Logic II-compatible systems.
Mono: Select this setting for systems that do not support stereo output.
Note If you have connected to Xbox LIVE and downloaded any AutoUpdates, the Mono option will not be available.
Digital output settings:
Digital Stereo: Select this setting to use digital stereo output.
Dolby Digital 5.1: Select this setting to use Dolby Digital output.
Enable WMA Pro: Select this setting to enable WMA Pro pass-through if your receiver supports the WMA Pro format.
Note You must use one of the following cables to support digital output:
It's not your fans that's causing the problem. It's the XBOX itself. The Xboxes generally overheat and this has been a big problem for Microsoft. Alot of companies are actually reflowing these system, reheating the solder under the chips allowing them to connect back down to the points on the board.
You will need your system reflowed. Contact a repair shop.
If your TV is HD, you should definitely be connecting the component video cables (green, blue and red) from the 360 to the TV (the 321 will not do video pass-thru from component cables).
-Make sure you have a picture at this point. (TV switched to whichever input you connect the 360 to)
You can get an RCA extension cable for the audio portion (red and white) to connect to the 321 for audio. You could also connect an optical audio cable to the 321. An optical cable must be assigned from the system menu to work..
Let me know if this helps.
If you want to play 5.1 sound, and you got to need this fiber optic cable(black single cable)..with reciver decoder with optical on IN, to connect the xbox 360 machine on, and the high defintion cable of the xbox.
