    Hi

    I have two digital optical outputs (set top box & dvd) but only one input on my amp.
    Cables are difficult to get at to change inputs into amp (back of tv stand).
    Is there such a thing as an optical switch/input device that would have both inputs switchable, but one ouput?
    What do other people do in similar setup?
    I have checked some cable retailers but nothing I can see. Anyone have any ideas?

    Cheers

    B-TECH THREE TO ONE OPTICAL SWITCHER

    Expand your optical inputs/outputs with these
    switchable selectors. They allow any three optical
    devices to be connected to the input or output
    of a fourth, The simple rotary selector eliminates
    the need for continuous plugging/unplugging of
    your equipment.
    For Toslink connections [BTZ1T] £29.99

    I posted what i use a while back, which is only a splitter. Only thing is you can't have both on at once otherwise it will confuse the amp. Cost about £3.00. Try Maplin and search for optical splitter.

    Mat, have you looked on the Maplins 'site?

    They list a 3-into-1 switch which at least LOOKS the same as the Keene/Lektropacks one, for £19.99 (+ P&P ?)

    I've been considering buying one of these, so I'd be interested to hear your impressions of it if you go ahead.
