Is there a way to connect both my Xbox One and 360 and TV to my home cinema system like some kind of spliter that and different channels or something?
I'm naming my Xbox One, Neo... because it's The One.

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.
