    Only have one coax digital input and I need at least two (could use three). I've seen toslink switch boxes, but haven't found coax digital switch boxes (unless that means I can use a regular video box).

    What receiver? Yes a composite video switchbox will work, since coaxial digital conforms to video cable specs. I was happy to find that my receiver (Marantz 8300) has 3 coax, and I am using 2 of them.

    Looks like this one from the thread about optical switch boxes does both optical and coax.
