    For 5.1 from sky+, and xbox, I think my only option is optical cable, but I only have 1 optical input on my processor.

    If I can't get digital coax out from sky+ or xbox, what are my options?
    Converter, splitter?

    Thanks

    Thanks. Very inexpensive. Would it be correct to assume the signal would not be affected at all?

    Only other otion is to have one of the optical signals converted to digital coax. Ant recommendations there, for as lossless as possible?

    I use the splitter , which is even cheaper from the above , for the exact same as you want to (xbox & sky) . so long as Sky+ is in standby , no problems at all :D

    Bound to be some loss of quality with a splitter I assume. Can't stomach the idea of losing quality :) Also, I guess I'll need sky left on for other roos in the house.
