    Default Melee Optical Output

    So I just received my Melee headset and realized that I do not have an optical out on my XBOX 360. It is an old model and its the arcade version. I am getting the XBOX One in a few weeks but was wondering what the optical cord actually does because I just plugged it into my tv instead and the usb into the controller usb and I have all my audio but no microphone. So is the optical being plugged into the tv instead of the system my issue with gamechat?

    You need the mix amp plugged into your 360 controller for game chat. The optical is just to send sound to the headset, not for chat.
