    Couldn't search and find what I was looking for. Are there switches available to increase the number of digital inputs I can have for my reciever?

    Yes, there are digital audio switches/selectors available. MSB used to make a rather expensive (and may still), and Audio Authority also sells a Model 1177 with 4 inputs and 1 output.

    Most of these selectors have conversion between optical and coaxial connections, and they generally also provide input autosensing with a priority order. So, for example, it'll switch automatically to the input device that is sending it a signal. If more than one device is sending a digital signal to the switch, then it chooses the one with the highest priority. There's usually also a button to allow for manual selection.

    The Audio Authority 1177 sells for about $120 at places like Digital Connection.
