I am not sure if you require a optical switch or splitter. But my guess is a switch based on what I can get from your post.. A switch will allow you to connect mutiple components to a single optical input. They sell manual switches for around $7-$10. You can find some with remote for a bit more.

Here is a splitter. It will allows you to connect one optical/digital audio source to two different recievers/sources.

I have the same problem as the tc but is there any cheaper selectors than the guy above me posted.

The one I posted above is only around $7.. It is a simple manual selector. If you want 1 with remote, it will cost quite a bit more. And many of those are combined with a video switch. The cheapest I seen was around $45..

My sound system has only ONE optical input-- I use a toslink splitter to connect it to my STB and my DVD player; it works fine. I do not use an output from the DVD player and the STB/DVR at the same time. I don't know what you'd get it, if fed your reciever two signals at once.
It works perfectly for me and a $6 splitter an an extra toslink cable is a lot less expensive than a "switcher".
