Optical cable switch boxes

Can anyone out there help?. Is it possible to have an optical cable switchbox, to link the PS2 and the DVD player to the surround sound system, which only has 1 optical connector? If so where can I get one?

I have never seen a simple switching unit for fiber optics, they’re mostly complicated affairs that have their own CPU’s to do the switching.

You may be able to use a duplex connector, if you contact these people and ask for their catalogue:

How about an optical cable splitter used in reverse, joining two outputs to one input?

May be worth investigating.

Have a look at click here product number L82AF.
