    I bought this S/S/PDIF (Toslink) Digital Optical Audio Splitter to take output signal from tv to sound bar input and also receiver input but it’s not working. I can see red optical light signal at all points but no sound from any device. Each device works without splitter when device is connected independently. Suggestions?
    A shopper on Apr 29, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I am having the same problem. I've tried many cables and it doesnt work!
    I have 2 300 disc changers. they both have toslink outputs. Can I use it to connect them to my amplifier's toslink input?
    A shopper on May 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I think so,because your not using wire.that means you won,t get cross talk between the two changers. I'm using the
    splitter from the output of my tv to a soundbar and amplifier fiber optic inputs .
    I want to run optical cable from TV to one soundbar directly above TV and to another soundbar directly across room requiring approx. 35 feet of optical cable but descriptions say the splitter has no loss of sound up to 16 ft of cable. Also I need one male end on one end and 2 females on other end of splitter (male end would insert into TV) Any suggestions ? Run 3 or 4 10ft. cables with male/female connectors in between ?

    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. We would not have a splitter with a male end. Perhaps using a short optical cable will be best. As for the length, you could run into issues splitting the signal and running the length needed. You can try it out if you would like, we do offer a 30 day return policy and you can return it if it does not work out for you.

    Read this for connecting 2 devices to 1 receiver!
    For people who want to connect 2 optical audio sources to 1 receiver, here's the deal. Other reviewers have mentioned that this adapter will work for this configuration as long as only one device is on, and I don't doubt their results. However, the potential issue is that not all devices kill the optical signal when you power them off.

    I tried to use this adapter with a DVD player and a WD TV Live streaming player, and because the WD never turns off its TOSLINK signal, the DVD player's signal can't ever take over and get to the receiver. How to work around this? You could unplug the power or the optical cable from the offending device, or you may be able turn the signal on and off in the device's Settings menu, but you'll have to do it every time you want to switch. No thanks.

    So if you want to try this adapter for a 2-sources-to-1-receiver connection, before buying you should should turn each device on, enable its optical connection if not already active, and then power off the device and make sure the red beam at the receiver's end of the optical cable goes out. If this doesn't happen for both devices, the adapter will not work as expected and you'll need the switch (PID 2946) instead, as Monoprice indicates in the description. The reviews for this adapter claiming it could function as an automatic switch between 2 optical sources were the only reason I didn't buy the proper switch myself.

    P.S. I rated this product a "5" to help this message stand out. I have no reason to believe it wouldn't deserve a "10" when used as intended.

    Just what I neede
    I bought this to do a 2 into 1 for my home theater system. I had to connect an Xbox 360 and a PS3 into my surround system and this worked like a charm. Not much else you can say, it just plain works. The only detail worth noting is that both systems can not be on at the same time as they will interfere with one another.

    PROS: -cheap

    CONS: -none

    As advertised. Very Nice
    This is a bit of a backdoor way to accomplish some needs, but it worked great for taking the single Optical out from my TV and splitting it into two devices (receiver and wireless headset)

    I should not that this does not work if both devices are on at the same time, but if one is off it performs as I would hope.

    PROS: Very Nice Quality
    Very Nice Performance

    Didn't work for my purpose
    I bought this to split the sound signal from my tv so that I could send it both to my sound bar and my stereo. The split signal goes to the stereo just fine, but because the splitter does not have an amplifier it does not work with my sound bar. This should work fine if you do not need amplification.

    PROS: simple


    CONS: no amplifier

    didn't work with my sound bar

    Excellent product
    I used it to hook my xbox and cable box up to the same receiver that only had one optical input. Works great and I couldn't find anything that would do the same thing for anywhere close to this price.

    Worked as advertised, was able to split audio coming from my Samsung TV to Samsung Soundbar & Home theater system. Will recommend this splitter to anyone needing to connect their Home Theater system & Soundbar to their TV.

    PROS: Excellent built and small enough to hidden out of site.

    CONS: None

    Used this to split my xbox 360 audio, once to my receiver, and once to my digital wireless headphones transmitter. Works awesome and it's so cheap!

    Great!!! Bought it to plugin my ps3 and 360 into one digital input on my audio receiver, and works like a charm. Just make sure you plugin all the cables in the same orientation (read other reviews). I had to tape them to a board to make sure the cables wouldn't spin around freely, but after I did that, I haven't had any problems.

    Even the stereo store was impressed
    When I had my stereo zone 2 speakers installed, I got this unit because I needed to split my signal and send one copy into an analog line for zone 2 speakers. The installer from the higher end audio store was pleasantly surprised by the unit. After owning it for nearly two years, it still worked flawlessly, no evidence of cut-outs, or any problems at all. This is a "setup and forget" device. I forgot about it until I had to take unhook my stereo in order to move.

    PROS: Unpowered device that actually does everything it claims

    CONS: Need to be careful plugging it in the first time to get good connection

    Split a signal, or share a single optical audio port
    I used this to share a single optical audio input on a reciever with an Xbox and PS2, and both work fine with this. The thing to keep in mind is that due to the fact there's a splitter between the signal now, the cable going into the receiver has to be short due to the fact there WILL be a slight loss of light intensity. The cable I used for this is the "1.5ft Premium Optical Toslink Cable w/ Metal Fancy Connector" sold here also

    PROS: Durable and sturdy, cable inputs latch securely with the device itself working fine

    CONS: Read review for potential cons
