1. I have an old 5.1 surround receiver (Technics sa-ax720).
2. I have front, rear and center speakers connected to it.
3. My dvd player has 5.1 connections which currently connect to the receivers 5.1connections and I get great surround sound.
4. My android box connects to my tv via HDMI.
5. My tv has an optical output.

I want to connect the tv optical output to my speaker system so when I am streaming I can listen through the speakers. I require a digital to analog converter that is 5.1 compatible.

Can I add 'y' splitter connections to the 5.1 receiver connections to do this?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks George.
Yes the dvd has an optical output. Is your thought to plug the tv and dvd into the converter inputs and then have one set of cables out to the receiver?

Yes, if you want a splitter option. Of course the other alternative is to get a new receiver which can handle multiple digital inputs.
