The Xbox 360 has problems with video through surround receivers. In order to get the best results, connect your Xbox directly to your TV with HDMI, then run an optical cable from your TV to Opt 1 CD on your receiver.

There is a little setup involved.

On your TV, go to the audio menu, and turn the TV speakers off. That will activate the optical audio output.

On your receiver, press setup, then select the Input Assign menu. Make sure Opt 1 is set to CD, switch your receiver to the CD source, and you should be good to go. Let me know if you have any trouble.
