Do they make an toslink or Digital Coax switcher?


This is my problem. I have an older Denon AVR3200 receiver. It has one coax and one toslink digital input. I have three devices that need to be connected; JVC 30K DVHS, Samsung SIRT165 and DVD player.


Right now I'm just running the samsung 165 to my samsung DLP getting no digital signal.


I can't afford to by a new receiver right now, just wondered if they have any switchers that would work.


Thanks,

Jeff

Great, found that. It's $30.


Now does anyone have one that I can switch via IR (Pronto)? The RS model has a manual switch on the top. Which will work, but it would be nice to be able to control it without getting out of my seat ;)


Thanks,

Jeff

That one looks good. I have a question though.


I want to hook up my Samsung SIRT165 OTA receiver, JVC DVHS, DVD, and another DVD. But the 165 will always be sending a signal, but If I start a movie in the DVHS, they will both be sending a signal at the same time then. What does the switch when that happens?


Thanks for the link!!

Actually the more I think about it, I can make it work.

My receiver has one Coax and one Toslink. I can use the coax on the 165 and have everything else run through the Audio Authority switch.


Thanks,

Jeff



Still curious what happens if two things are sending a signal though.


UPDATE - I should have read about the model 1177. I see you can set a priority. Nevermind about that question.

Your solution should work but FYI the AA 1177 prioritizes it's inputs according to input numbers. So if you connected the 165 to input #4 any other active source would override it. The benefit to this is you would never have to switch inputs on your receiver for the digital signals.
