I don’t suppose a Sonos optical-to-HDMI adapter is what you need. That takes an optical signal and emulates an HDMI-ARC, to interface to a Beam, Amp or Arc.

To get the sound from an Xbox as an optical feed you’d need an HDMI-to-optical audio extractor.

Lovely thanks Bruce 

Note, this is optical to HDMI ARC, and not the other way around. One way only.
