Hi all, just bought a new TV and so have gone through the pain of disconnection/reconnection of it and ancilliaries. Knowing we'd have an Optical DIgital Sudio out on the new TV and liking this method of connection I bought a Lindy 2-port switch as our surround system is probably 12 years old now, works absolutely fine but only has one Optical input port and no HDMIs. Connected the Blu-Ray player to one input on the switch and the TV to the other, played a disc but only got 2.1 rather than 5.1. If I manually select the input it will switch to 5.1 but this isn't why I bought an auto switch! I can only think that the TV is still inputting from it's optical output even when I've got the DVD player running. Anyone any idea how to get the TV not to output when the DVD players playing?

Hi Browser,

If you only have the bluray connected does the audio work fine? It may be that the unit is switching back to your TVs optical output if the TV has an "always on" optical port.
