Hey guys, I have a 360 slim and some turtle beach headphones coming in the mail. Just curious; I use HDMI for video, does the 360 force HDMI for audio too? Can I just plug in my RCA AV cable that will come with the unit for audio? Or do I have to buy a dongle like someone has told me to? Thanks for your help!

I think it'll output sound to whatever's plugged into it. So you can have an HDMI cable and an AV cable plugged in, and you can use either without having to mess with video/audio settings.

You have to be subscribed to Gold in order to hear any audio out of an Xbox 360.

No. All my systems go to my TV and I have a toslink out to the receiver. Toslink into the TB's and Toslink out to the receiver. If the 360 is your only console the slim has a toslink but you'll need to change your settings in the 360.

Does it have optical? I got a pair of Trittons, and you plug the optical and USB into the 360.
