    Audio advice

    (not car audio so i thought here would be best place?)

    In my DVD player at home it has some inputs for the surround sound, i have to connect 3 things but it only has 2 inputs so i either need an adapter so 2 "optical in" cables can go into one input or a adapter so 2 sets of the red & white type plugs can go into one input,
    Can someone who has a clue point me in the right direction of where to look or even what is it called that im looking for?

    Thanks,

    aha, that looks about right, but would need 2? one for both the white cables, and one for both the red cables? Does that sound about right?

    Thanks

    Im confused now, you got two red cables and 2 white cables,

    am i right in saying you got 2 set of speakers and from each one theres a white connection and a red connection?

    but the item you want to connect the speakers too only has 2 connections??

    sorry, basically, my Wii has a red and white cable, and my PS2 has a red and white cable, but my DVD player only has the input for 1 set, so rather than keeping swapping them all the time im after something that can take both sets of wires in and output just one to go into the DVD player,
    like this -


    (or even better would take both optical audio cables instead and put them both into one input but not sure if thats possible~)

    Problem

    Yh now i understand, the problem is, if you get two of those adaptors and connect one to the red on DVD player, and the other to the white on the DVd player, you'll end up with your WII sound coming out of one of the speakers and your ps2 out of the other, so sort of MONO, not stereo, let me think about this and see if we can find a way around that

    could i with 2 of those put both reds in one and put to the red on the DVD and both whites in the other into the white on the DVD then both should work the same as before (but i assume with a slight loss in quality?)

    Optical splitters are available and much better than RCA's, especially if you have surround sound

    could you not use the RCA inputs from one console and then use the Optical input from the other? would save an awful lot of hassle, as any splitter will reduce the quality of the signal when you split it
