My problem came about because I wanted to hook my 360 up to my 22" widescreen monitor which doesn't have audio. Obviously I didn't want to play without sound and my attempt to plug the HDMI cable and the A/V cable in simultaneously met with futility.
My solution involves modding the Microsoft Composite A/V cable, which should have come standard with the system. I realize now, after doing a quick Google search, that there are a few other tutorials online on how to do this so I don't claim any credit for originality.
