Using Hdmi for DVI, optical for audio

OK, here's the thing. My TV overscans, quite a fair bit, on HDMI - whereas with DVI it is perfect but I obviously have no audio. Now, the TV uses a HDMI port for DVI so I don't need/want an HDMI to DVI convertor.

My question then is, using the HDMI/DVI setup this way is it possible to use an optical lead (from the Xbox to a soundbar) for the audio?

Also, if the soundbar idea works, will audio from my cable box still work (being plugged into the Xbox HDMI pass through)?

I'm just wondering if this is a viable option before I go out and buy a soundbar or a new TV.

Thanks
