    My DVD player and DishNetwork cable box both have only optical outputs and my reciever has only one optical input.

    Is there such a thing as a splitter? Or a switcher?

    I am not sure about a optical splitter (though I have to believe they exist), but you could also use a Toslink/coax converter for one of your Toslink components if you happen to have a spare digital coax input. The following from RS is an example:

    I am not necessarily suggesting this particular product, but just to give you another idea to try.
