Use the HDMI from the Xbox to the TV but the TV should also have a set of output jacks for your surround sound.

I have my xbox set up using hdmi out and sending the sound through my 5.1 speakers just using the red and white cable to the sound system inputs. Doesn't that work for you? I had to use the special adapter though; "Microsoft Xbox 360 HDMI AV Cable"

Maybe to make it easier to you , you should think to start to buy a new receiver , in the case of out of budget , does your receiver stereo as a Optical cable in ????
