    Hi, I have 3 game consoles, a PS2, an X-Box, and a DreamCast that I run through my Yamaha receiver. The X-Box and the PS2 both have optical outputs. I do not have enough optical inputs on my reciever to use the optical outs on my game systems.

    What I'm looking for is a simple selector switch to plug all 3 game consoles into, that has optical inputs. I have seen several of these at places like Best Buy, and even Wal-mart...but they all use just A/V jacks and S-Video. Does anyone know of a selctor switch with optical inputs? A selector switch that will allow 4 devices to be hooked up would be ideal, as I will probably be adding a GameCube in the future. Thanks for any leads!

    do you just need the optical switch? if so check out Parts Express and part number 180-980. it is only $19.80. then you could also pick up the other switch if you need it (check part number 180-932) for around $30, and by using both you will save around $100 if you dont mind using 2 separate switches.
