Are you talking about sound?

Toslink optical?

I have this (obviously I'm only using the toslink optical ports, not the video ports):

but this should work just as well:

You could go with one that isn't powered

But then you may also have to get a booster (if you went the cheap way with the unpowered switch):

You really can't know if you'll need a booster or not, so I suggest going with a powered switch and save the headache and extra cables. It depends on your source, and the receiver. Some will need a stronger toslinkl optical signal, and you lose that with an unpowered switch.
