Another option to look at is an HDMI switch. If your Home Theatre is lacking the additional inputs it will help. I am not sure if you can just pass audio. I have one that I have a PS3, HD-DVD and Cable Box. I installed because I didn't have enough HDMI connectors available in my system. This switch will handle 4 inputs to 1 output. With each input you can have either Coax or Optical. One caution that I learned the hard way. If you use Coax for input you have to use Coax for output and the same for Optical. The one I use is the following:

I have been very pleased with it. I was also able to program it into the Universal Remote I use. It wasn't in the database but I was able to do it in a learn mode.

It received good reviews and I would recommend to anyone. Only down side I found was mixing digital type audio cables but that was easily resolved.

Just something else to think about.
