HDMI carries both sound and video.

I know that but I am using a HDMI-DVI connector as my monitor hasn't got builit in speakers so the sound has to go into my 2.1 setup via component.

Well that's ****. Now I have to buy a new HD TV unless I want to play in SD.

A feature I took for granted on my PS3 will be sorely missed.

To answer your question, yes you can. Plug both into the back of the system. If you can't fit both in the back, pop the housing off of the component connection and then they will.

Ah that's strange I just called Xbox and the person who answered put me on hold for 2 minutes and said it has to be one or the other.

I don't get it, is this supposed to be a dig at the Xbox?

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and say no. Does your monitor have an optical audio port? If so, I'd say that's a better option than running the sound through component.

i remember going through this trouble. i wanted to use my ps3 on my monitor as i was doing the same with my 360.

360 hooked up just fine, but everyone was telling me no you cant hook up the ps3 through vga and all that. got tired of being told no, and just bought a small 22" tv with 2 HDMI ports.

No it's just that I'm selling my PS3 to get an Xbox again and my monitor has no spears whatsoever so I run my audio through a nice bassy 2.1 system next to my monitor.

Yeah dude, just hook up your HDMI cable to your monitor. Then hook up the component dongle into the port above it on the 360. Then just run the red and whites to your speaker system. But like I said, MS designs the ports so you can't normally have both plugged in at once. However, you can crack the casing off of the component connection which slims it down and allows you to plug both in. Or you can buy the actual audio dongle off ebay for like $8
