Xbox 360 HDMI and Optical out

Is there any way to do simultaneous HDMI AND optical out of an Xbox 360? I have the HDMI plugged in, but if I plug in the proprietary cable that goes right above it that has the optical output adapter on it there is no video out from the HDMI. I need the optical out for the 5.1 to the receiver, but I need the HDMI for the 1080p from my TV. Any suggestions? I dont believe my receiver does HDMI pass-through to 1080p.

I can get the two to fit, but if I have the cable plugged in, the 360 will not output HDMI

Plugging on the proprietary cable that has optical out with the hdmi as well should not disable the hdmi video, as this is how my wife is watching netflix on the xbox right now lol

Is it the Jasper chipset 360? I got a brand new Elite and I'm starting to think its a hardware update MS did to prevent this so they would sell more $50 HDMI cables
