I was just messing around and found something that could accutually work.
So heres what I came up with:
I came acorss this sound box:
1. Plug in the Digital Optical cable into the Sound Box from the 360 using this: http://img535.imageshack.us/img535/5803/360elite20
2. Plug in X 540 into outputs. All of them are there that are needed.
Will this get me full 5.1 Surround sound with my Xbox 360? I know the games have to support it.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I looked at the JJBYPC web site and it looks like the device is a USB External Sound Interface.
I don't think it will do what you want.
There is no manual for it online but from what it reads like.
It appears to be powered by the USB Port and most of its functions are controlled through the computer and included software.
So it would need a USB Port for power and a computer to control it.
The ability to take a SPDIF Optical Digital Input and output it to the analog jacks is not clear.
You may want to use the web pages ask a question feature before purchasing the device.

Thank you, Sorry I didn't make that clear in my post.
I came across another one that doesn't require a computer: http://cgi.ebay.com/5-1-AUDIO-DECODER-5-1-SOUND-DE
Scroll down and he has pictures of it connected to the xbox 360.

Hello, guys! I have been searching for a solution to give me true 5.1 sound from my Logitech X-540's and my 360. I do have one dilemma, however. I need a switch. I want to have bothe my 360 and PC connected to my X-540's at the same time. So far I have only found a DIY solution: LINK
This is EXACTLY what i need, however, I'm not too confident in my ability to build it myself (I have never soldered before
If anyone knows of a switch that will allow me to choose between two or more 3x3.5mm surround sound sources, that would be great!
