Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but... Bought today to split optical out from my TV into 2 devices. Be aware you need 3 optical cables for it to work as advertised. It won't plug into a TV directly as I had assumed and this wasn't mentioned in store either. This means you need to buy another optical cable to actually connect to the splitter, plus any extra cables to run to your destination devices, so it starts getting expensive. Why wouldn't they just design it to plug directly into the source? I think the product description should have made this clear. However, it works well once connected up.

Does this have standard optical connection to TV. Will it split a soundbar and TV link (sending sound to wifi hearing aids made by phonak) Would there be any decrease in signal strength

i want to conect my tv/sky box to my sound bar and my surround sound system so they both work together at the same time. would this product work?

Asked by: crackmus
As long as all the items use the TOSlink optical connection then this will allow a single source to output to two audio systems.

How does the splitter connect optic one to optic 2 and visa versa

Asked by: Tickertruble
The input signal goes into the single optical input, this is the split into 2 identical copies. Neither of those 2 copies have any connection to each other.
