I went through all the messagas, one was close to my question, but no answers.
So here goes.

My reciever has "1" digital audio coax input.

I want to feed two units to it w/o always unplugging my DVD Plyr or Cable Box.

1)Is there an A B switch or selector that handles this? I have not found one anywhere including radio shack and on-line.

2)If one does not exist, can I use one that has composite and jusy use that? or will the 5.1 not be passed this way?

3)Are the RCA plugs any different for other inputs as well such as composite, component video, right, left ect.?

I want to know the very same thing. I have two dvd players. One sometimes does not want to play a particular dvd while the other plays it just fine. My 5.1 DTS receiver has only 1 digital audio coaxial input, as Peter says. Without a "A B switch" I have to connect a different DVD player by pulling out my entertainment center and reconnect the other coax cable. Why can't a digital coax AB switch be created for this inconvenience?
