im trying to figure out if this set up will work correctly. let me know. thanks!

Samsung HT-X40 Complete Home Theater System
It is an HD upconvert DVD player that comes with 5.1 surround sound. it also has an HDMI out and an optical input.

hooked up to LCD TV with a HDMI Cable

XBOX 360 Elite

hooked up to the LCD TV with an HDMI cable and hooked up to the DVD player with an Optical Cable

i'm looking to get the surround sound speakers to work with my TV whenever i play dvds. and i'm looking to get surround sound to work with my TV when i play video games. if i turn the DVD player on and set it as AUX would i be able to get the surround sound for video games? and if i didnt turn the dvd player on for the sound, would i just get the tv speakers to work for video games since its hooked up with the HDMI cable to the TV anyways. i'm not looking for surround sound for regular tv.
