    Hi all,

    Here's my situation:

    I have an amp which has 1 optical and 1 coax input but I have 3 devices I want to connect. At the moment I have Sky+ conneced on the optical socket and my DVD player on the co-ax.

    I recently bought a small form factor pc (a Shuttle) to sit next to the tv setup and this has both optical and co-ax ouputs and I want to connect via one of these rather than the analogue output.

    I've searched for some kind of 2 into 1 splitter for both optical and co-ax but can find nothing (other than 1 to 2 splitters). I'm probably not looking for the right thing but can someone advise if such a thing exists and where/what I should be looking for?

    Also, for anyone who has a similar setup, the pc has optical in as well as out, can I pass the Sky+ signal to the in and then just connect the out to the amp? Does the PC need to be switched on for this or will it just pass through?

    Thanks in advance.
