I'm not sure yet what will work, but when I find it, I'll let you know.

I have an audio receiver with only 1 fiber optic input, but have two devices with fiber optic outputs (Xbox 360 and Comcast HDTV Box).

Absolutely no sound came from surround sound system and the sound from my headset was distorted.

I'm using this backwards from how it's made. Instead of using it to split one output into two, I'm splitting one input into two and it works fine. My receiver only had one optical input but I had two devices with optical outputs. Using this I now have both my XBox 360's optical output and my cable box's optical output going into the splitter and then one cable going from the splitter into my receivers single optical input. Some people told me this wouldn't work but I guessed that it would since it shouldn't make a difference which way the light is traveling. Much more convienient then buying one of those selector switch boxes and having to manually change the selection all the time.

I ordered one of these because my receiver only has 1 optical input & I needed a second input for my X-Box 360. I also ordered 2 relatively cheap optical cables from the Parts Express seller as well. This splitter has no optical connector on the end of the Y so a short optical cable + a longer one to run from one of the inputs to the 360 was also necessary. The other input was used for an OPPO 970HD Dvd Player & I already had the cable to use for that one.

It's pretty straight forward how to use the splitter. The time spent hooking this up was maybe 10 minutes max & would've probably been even less had I had quick access to the back of my receiver. Originally I had no idea something like this existed & I stumbled upon this product by accident. The price is more than reasonable & will save you from buying a new receiver if you need a second optical input. I've had mine for about a week & have not noticed an distortion or changes in sound quality.

Highly recommended.

Understand how your devices are working prior to purchasing this item if you are attempting to use it as a 2-1 (2 outputs to 1 input) solution for your A/V receiver. It did not work in my case because the item does not block any signals. So, if you have a device like I do that doesn't turn off the optical signal when not in use (my DirecTV HD-DVR), it will not work correctly since the signal gets mixed/corrupted.

Does what it was made for very well. Which is to split 1 output (default uses) or combine 2 outputs (only if there is 1 signal on at 1 time).

It is very light weight and small. The quality is very good and strong.

I have this hooked up with my Xbox 360 and PS3. Works like a charm. Not 1 single issue with sound. Saved me $20 and manual switching.

Just make sure you have equipment that does not send a light signal when off or on standby... Or this will not work for you. This is the only downside to this great product.

I am using this product as a 2 output to 1 input solution. I have both my PS3 and my XBOX 360 hooked up via optical cables to my receiver which only has one optical input. Works flawlessly in this reverse manner. I have not tried splitting a single source to separate devices. **NOTE** if you are planning to use it in this reverse manner, make sure the devices that you are hooking up through this dongle do NOT transmit signals while off. Great Product!

I saw an equal number of negative and positive reviews about this product, so I figured for less than $10 it was worth a shot.

I have an audio receiver with only 1 fiber optic input, but have two devices with fiber optic outputs (Xbox 360 and Comcast HDTV Box). While this product was designed as a splitter (i.e. taking audio from one source and sending it to two sources, like a receiver plus a set of headphones, etc.), I read several reviewers using it for dual input as I desired.

Some reviewers reported that this item worked great, but unfortunately that was not my experience for two reasons:

1. I could only get one of the inputs to work consistently (i.e. one device would get audio through, while the other rarely did). This is probably due to quality control problems (i.e. the internal components are configured correctly, so something is loose or misaligned), or the second reason that I was disappointed.
2. The connections were not tight, and so the cables would pop out or jiggle, leading again to signal loss and no audio. Obviously not what I'm shooting for, especially if I have to occasionally move the cables if I need to get behind my TV cabinet, etc.

My guess is that this is a quality control problem / shoddy workmanship, which is why it works great for some, but not at all for others. If you're willing to risk $10 for a 50/50 shot at a (theoretically) perfect solution to your problem, I say go for it! I did!

P.S. If you do buy this and happen to get one that works fine, watch out for one potential problem: both audio sources can't be on and sending audio signals at the same time (i.e.

I received my switch/splitter today in the mail, popped in the toslink cables from the Xbox 360 and PS3 and ran one to the receiver. It worked perfectly for me. I think that the major issue people were having with other components is that if either component connected constantly sends the audio signal regardless of activity, it will not work; however for the Xbox 360 and PS3, neither of them send the signal for audio unless they are on, so it works flawlessly.
