I found out that Xboxes have the tendency to freeze like some old PC's used to do frequently (the ones I've experienced at least). What is exactly the reason for a console like Xbox to freeze? Does it depend on overheating, bad Bios or just a system crash or something? I've had a PS2 for almost 3 years now and it has never been nasty to me. Also I have a Creative Inspire 5.1 sound system that is optically connected to my PS2 and Line-in on my laptop. Is there a way I can connect my Xbox to it as well? My TV doesn't have any connection possibilities for surround sound, so Gamecube and Xbox seemingly have different routines for that bizz. Maybe some kind of gizmo I can connect to the console(s)?
