I am trying to input two amplifiers (separate rooms) from the Sky plus optical output. Both work individually, so the signal's fine. I've tried a 'Y splitter', but guess I understood it's function the wrong way round as neither worked when I tried it.

As I understand it 'Optic Switches' direct the beam so that only one receiver can be fed at a time, not both simultaneously?

Is this correct, or is there a way so both can be utilised at the same time?

Any ideas or advice gratefully received.

What you need is a distribution amplifier this splits the signal and amplifies it so that the each device receives a full power signal. When you use a splitter each device receives half the signal which may not be enough to power the end device.
The concept is explained here:

I found this one at Markertek but have no experience with it. They can probably help you out if you give them a call.

Good luck.
