Not exactly easy to hook up if you're a bit inexperienced with optical equipment. I had to do a little research to make it work.
This is a one-direction adapter. If both audio sources are switched on at the same time, it will not work. As some sources send signal even when on "stand by-mode", you should check whether it sends out signal. Plug one end of the toslink cable into the port of the source and check the other end for red light. When on stand by, the light should not be lit.
Use the same method above when the units are connected to the adapter to see if the signal get's through. And of course, switch off the source you're not checking.
If you do not have any of the problems above and it's still not working, the cables are probably to long. My research online indicates that it should not be longer than 50 cm from the adapter and into the receiver.
Check your equipment before buying, if a source is sending signals in stand-by, you should buy a optical switch instead.
If not, it's a safe buy!
