    i have an output connector for my x-box with various color RCA jacks
    and cant figure out where the blue and green rca jacks go on my
    surround sound receiver. Can someone help with this?

    You've got the HDTV box, the blue and green jacks are two of the 3 for the
    RGB output, if your TV and surround reciever support this there'll be
    matching jacks on them as well. IIRC that box also has an Svideo jack and
    stereo audio RCA's, those are the ones you wanna use.

    If you are talking about the HDTV connector kit, the Green, Red and Blue go
    to the HDTV component video input for the HDTV. The Cable enclosed with the
    kit also has another red/white pair for the left and right analog audio.
    If you look carefully you will also notice an optical digital audio output
    connector on the connector end. This would be the one to use for a good
    surround receiver that can handle this input.
    Just one more note of concern.... You must also enable the optical output in
    the Xbox console menu under audio options. Same with using the Video menu
    for the various HDTV formats.
    If you have only an NTSC TV with component video inputs then you can still
    use this kit, but you will have to set the video mode to 480i only.
    The other problem with this HDTV kit is that the Xbox will only output the
    console menu's using 480i so if your HDTV input on your TV is 2H only then
    you won't be able to see these menus.

    Good Luck and good gaming,
