    Is a switch made that can split an optical audio cable? My friend has a receiver that only has one digital input for his DVD, but he has a DVD player and Xbox. He wants to be able play both the DVD player and Xbox off the same input. Is there a splitter, switch, or adapter that can be purchased to do this?

    Steve,
    What you want is Radioshack part number 15-1586. $29.99 Then take it to Best Buy and say "I needed this you blundering fool!" [​IMG] Enjoy!

    You can probably save some money by getting a splitter from www.mcmelectronics.com for $7 + shipping, they also have high-quality, ultra-cheap toslink cables too. Just search on "toslink" and you will get most of their inventory. I;ve purchased from them a couple of times and am extremely satisfied with their products. I even own one splitter myself.
