Great product, Great price!! hold cables firmly connected.

One thing to be aware of is that this is a simple splitter not a switch, this mean that the two sources can not be on at the same time, if you do the two signal get mixed up and the output signal is no good. Because of my setup, when using my blue ray player I had to disconnect my smart tv input. I ended up replacing it with a toslink selector switch.

This adaptor splits the input beam.Therefore,the beams on the two outputs will each be only 50% of the input beam.Because of the weak beam signal it will not work.This is called a passive splitter.
The other splitter that will work is called an active splitter.

Tried this last night. Was hoping to hook up my PS3 and Satellite receiver to my stereo system. I hooked up the TV first on its own without the toslink splitter and it works just fine. Attached the splitter (again only the satellite hooked up) and the sound would cut in an out. Tried the same test with my PS3 and no signal is received by the receiver at all.

I think in theory this can work. I do believe it is just mirrors that redirect the light from the cable. That said, when I looked at the amount of light which comes out of my cables, going through this splitter, it gets very dim. This is probably the reason why the receiver has issues. Too much of the signal is lost. I suspect, which very high quality optical cables, this may work.

One other thing to test before you try, is to ensure that turning off your equipment also terminates the optical signal. PS3, no issues but my satellite receiver, even when turned off, still sends a signal through the optical cable. It does not emit sound, but it does send light which would interfere with the PS3 signal is I was trying to use my PS3.

In the end, I will just plug and unplug the satellite optical from the receiver when I wish to have the surround sound and just keep the PS3 hooked up most of the time.

Cheers.

This is a very simple and easy solution to having too many pieces of equipment to attach to my home theatre amplifier. This works. Just make sure you don't have both pieces of equipment turned on at the same time, they will interfere with each other and you will have no audio.

Unusable for me.
I'm trying to split the optical audio out from my TV, to 2 outputs: Sound bar and tv hearing device.
Sound bar won't work at all.
I tried different optical cables, bought a new one. No go.

You get what you pay for.
