    Hi All,

    I have just ordered a BenQE2400HD for my use with my 360 and PS3.

    I would like to know if there is a HDMI splitter which includes an optical splitter as well?

    I don't really want to spend a fortune so a low cost option would be great.

    Look forward to you replies.

    Thanks, Rob. :)

    Do you want a splitter (which is for single source to multiple displays) or a switch (multiple sources to a single display)?

    Also I'm unclear why you need the optical splitter (or switch)? Does the BenQ have a optical input for audio? or Have you a seperate amp for the audio?

    Thanks for the reply. It's for two HDMI sources (PS3 and 360) into one display (one HDMI input). The PS3 and 360 both have optical outputs which need to go into a gaming headphone set (not the display) which only has one optical input.

    So its a switch you want (not a splitter).

    Theres this, but might be a bit overkill for what you want.
