i only have one optical input on my receiver and use it for xbox.


i would like to use a splitter to hook my receiver up to my hdtv to get 5.1 on tv shows.


will the splitter hinder the quality though?

Like any two way splitter it will cut the power in half so if your receiver can operate at half power not a problem!!

FYI power is expressed in db's so an equal split will lower the power by 3db (half power) you will probably be fine, as far as quality of signal no

degradation.

For the most part it will either work or not work... when it works your quality will more than likley be indistinguishabe from before. When it doesn't work it will probably be static or dead. Turn the volume all the way down before preforming this experiment.
