Use Composite AV cable and Digital AV Adapter cords together to get surround sound as well as 720p video quality?

So I was looking at purchasing the Digital AV Adapter that Apple provides in their store, so that I could connect myriad to my flat screen via HDMI to play movies in 720p (the max the cord apparently allows). I know that HDMI carries video as well as audio through so I would be able to play the movie audio though the TV itself... This is not what I want.

I want to play the audio through my surround sound system and I thought maybe combining the Composite AV cable also supplied by Apple would work? Has anyone tried this yet? There is a second 30-pin connection available on the Digital AV Adapter for charging the iPad and I thought maybe the Composite AV cord could connect to that and then directly to the surround sound just for the audio?

    I tried it thinking that this would offer a solution to my video/audio problems. I get the video, but still no audio. The composite av cables have great audio alone but the sound vanishes when plugged into the digital av adapter.
