I was curious if anyone could find a solution to my problem. I have two satellite receivers and a DVD player that all have optical outputs. But this is where my problem lies my HT receiver only has two optical inputs. I was thinking maybe I would use the co-axial output on one of my satellite receivers, but I really didn't want to do this. I'm under the impression that the optical output is what gives you true digital sound or maybe the co-axial output is just as good I don't know ? I was thinking if I go the optical route like I wanted to there would be something at radioshack or somewhere else that sells a device that would solve this problem. Oh by the way I using a Harmon Kardon AVR210 receiver. I would really appreciate if someone could solve this problem for me.
You can also buy an Y-junction for optical TOS-link cables. Some just divide one cable in to two (equals merge two into one); others have a switch so you can choose between two or more inputs or ouputs. They are inexpensive. Yes, Radioshack should have them.
