I have a shortage of inputs on my receiver, so I need to double-up an optical-in. I expected that this would be easy with a 2-1 TOSLink splitter/combiner. And it would be, if only the SoundBridge's laser was turned OFF when the SB is in standby mode. Unfortunately for me, the &^%$&^%$& laser remains ON while in standby, so the simple hack of using a splitter/combiner doesn't work.
This seems like rather odd behavior. Can it be fixed in firmware, or is it hardwired that way? If it CAN be fixed in firmware, it would be way cool if you did.
I should note that all my other A/V equipment turns TOSLink lasers off when in standby. The SoundBridge (an M1001) is the only odd-ball on this front.
