    I have some headphones I use with my pc with a DG sound card for gaming and love it.... I have got in to gaming on my 360 and wondering if there was a way to hook my headphones up with a mic? Also would I get 5.1 surround sound while gaming? :)

    As always thanks! :) Am guessing if I want virtual surround the mixamp is the only root? How you enjoying your yamaha amp with silent cicema mode?, doesnt that create virtual surround on all inputs connected to it?

    Not that I have noticed, but I'm going to double check the setting.
