I bought a new TV based on your suggestions, but I found a problem when hooking it up. I have a Yamaha receiver that has only two TosLink optical digital-audio inputs and one coax. But in order to hook up my computer, I need a third optical input. Can you recommend a TosLink switcher?
I haven't used any such switchers myself, but there are plenty to choose from. Just do an online search for "toslink switcher"; among those I found this way are from CablesToGo (3x1), Monoprice (3x1, shown here), Gefen (2x1), and Specialty-AV (4x2). The CablesToGo and Monoprice units are very inexpensive mechanical rotary switches, which could degrade with use over time, while the Gefen and Specialty-AV models use electronic switchingbut of course, they are much more expensive.
If you have an A/V question, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
