I'm trying to figure out a way to split the digital optical from one speaker to multiple devices.

Speaker - ONKYO GX-D90

Devices - PC, Xbox 360

Never used digital optical so I have no idea what to do.

Is this, AT-HDSL2(digital audio selector) the item I need for this to work? This selector has 2 input and 4 output. If anything I was looking for something with 1 output(as I only have 1 speaker) and more than 2 input(so I can connect more than 2 devices). Unless I am completely understanding this wrong.



PC, Xbox 360 ->-(2 input)->- [AT-HDSL2] ->-(1 output)->- Speaker

Is this right?

I believe the item you mention, HDSL, will not work as it's for splitting DSL network cables.
The XBOX 360 has S/PDIF and TOSLINK outputs I believe so for TOSLINK you can get something like THIS: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=104&cp_id=10423&c...

*I think your speakers use TOSLINK.

Thanks for the response, I couldn't even tell that AT-HDSL2 will not work. I even read reviews and checked the comments people made and I thought it was going to do the job as they were mentioning how they were connecting speakers to the device.

Still looking for answer to the first post.

This is the closest product I found that is sold in my area: AL-OP192SPL

Has 1 input and 2 output.

So, the speaker is input, and PC, Xbox 360 is the 2 output?

This is the back of the speaker

Look for something like I posted - 4 inputs and one output.
