    I just bought an HK AVR7200 receiver that has two optical inputs. I need three. I was told there are adaptors that take the optical cords from two devices and send them out with only one optical cord. Looking at the toslink adaptors I see online they are actually designed to take one optical in and take it out to two devices (like to a receiver and a recoerding device) That's the opposite of what I need. I need an adaptor that takes two and sends it into one.
    I saw this one

    It takes three optical ins and puts them to one out, but it has a rotary switch. I don't want to be reaching behind the receiver looking for a tiny rotary swicth when I want to go from CD to DVD player.
    Any ideas?

    Is an optical to coax better for any reason? I see the biggest drawback being is it's powered and I'd have to plug another thing in. I don't think I can keep plugging things in. Too much already [​IMG]
