Default HOWTO multiple SPDIF to single dac..

In my current DIY setup:

Sony Bluray player
HD satellite receiver
Seagate media player

I am using the Firestone audio spitfire 24/96 dac, which only has 1 optical and 1 coax digital in and 1 set of rca outs.. it's not really design for multiple input.. what I had been doing was plugging and unplugging the coax whenever i need to use the dac..

that was such a pain .. then I was on monoprice and found this:

since all three outputs sound via hdmi v1.3, i plug them all into the switch box, run ONE coax to the dac and VIOLA.. works like a charm

whenever i switch hdmi inputs, the digital signal is split from the hdmi cable and output to my single dac..
