Can both the digital and analog output on the Xbox 360 be used at once?
I recently got an Xbox Slim and I have some trouble connecting it to my monitor and stereo.
For the monitor I got an HDMI-to-DVI cable and now I can see something at least, but for the audio I have this problem: the big cable with the audio connectors that came with the Xbox has a part that when plugged in to the console is covering the HDMI port, so that I cannot connect both cables at once.
So now I can get either video or audio but not both.
I assume this is on purpose but I was wondering if it is safe to cut away the part of the cable which is covering the HDMI port, so that I can connect both cables at once. Is that true?
