I am looking for a device that will accept an optical audio (toslink) input for audio and an HDMI input for video then combine the streams into a single HDMI out to go to my AVR.
I have looked in quite a few online stores, but have not been able to find this particular combo. The closest I've come is a DVI + optical to HDMI, but I I'd rather stick with HDMI.

Thanks for any tips!

Can you explain what your end goal is? Maybe there's another way to get there.

Well the issue is that I have to split my HTPC video and audio because WMC crashes with surround sound via HDMI. it works fine with HDMI for video and optical for audio.

I need to then combine the two streams into a single HDMI to go into an HDMI switch. I've considered a DVI+optical to HDMI but don't really want to convert from DVI to HDMI, I'd rather just go HDMI through and through.

Set your native windows audio to 2.0 stereo and then set WMC audio to 5.1 or 7.1.  Otherwise the system will become unstable.  You will get stereo in native windows and full 5.1/7.1 while in WMC.
