    Hi,

    Can you get a Two input/One output optical splitter cable? I've seen One input/Two output but not the other way around. I have Two optical out sources but only One input on my receiver, meaning I would have to keep swaping the cable over.

    Thanks.

    I used to use a splitter for Sky+ & Xbox into my amp . I just used it in reverse . So long as sky was in standby , I had no issues at all . Switches are available now for about the same money , TVcables.co.uk have them . ( I think thats them)

    Beware ! The optical output on some types of Sky box stays on, even in standby. Worth checking before you buy.
