This RCA adapter cable allows HDMI video to be routed to the HDTV with the audio routed separately to the home theater system. This is a generic / aftermarket product.

I searched online and this is the cheapest solution I can find for under six bucks (at the time of the review). Others have issues switching sources causing the Xbox to reset which might have deterred me of this purchase, but because I use the projector just a few times a week, I did not have to switch it between sources. I just remove the cable and the projector goes back to the shelf.
Now I can enjoy HD gaming on 150+ inch screen.
Unfortunately the headphones I have don't have any way to connect to the Xbox 360 without a little special attention. Here's how I did it.
I use this adapter to plug into the Analog port next to the HDMI port. Since this adapter is the "Slim" model, it allows the HDMI port to still be used. If you use the provided Microsoft adapter, it's too fat and you won't be able to plug both in.
I then connect my turtle beach Red and White RCA plugs into the end of this adapter and presto! I have audio to my wireless headset!
It took me awhile to figure out how to get this done after searching every webpage you could think of, everyone said you needed a special adapter this and special adapter that, but this turned out to be the easiest method and cheapest!
Simply put, this adapter works perfectly, it's sturdy and durable, the audio quality is great and I still have access to my HDMI port!. I hope this review helps you when you make your choice!
The connector I received had an additional wiring flaw that caused no audio after I jumped the connectors, but luckily I had a working Mad Catz adapter to open up and compare it to, so I'll share that fix in case anyone else has this same problem. (Please look at the customer image of the wire connections for reference.)
If the wire attached to connector 14 (brown, in my case) runs straight into the gray cable, simply cut it about 2 cm from the connection, loop the other end back to the other side, strip a little of the insulation, and solder it to connector 13. (It will share this connection with another wire, black in my case.) You can simply leave the remainder of the wire you cut with no connection. (Yes, this means my adapter had 7 wires running through the cable, while the Mad Catz adapter has only 6. Go figure.)
This was about 10 minutes of work for me, and I had to tape the casing back together, but now the adapter works just as well as the Microsoft adapter for a fraction of the price.
(It's worth noting that the more-expensive Mad Catz adapter I first bought has the same resetting problem and DOES NOT allow you to fix it with soldering as it simply doesn't have the extra metal tabs to solder, which is why I bought this one.)
