what is the most streamlined way to achieve this? i have one pair of aux input on my receiver. i want to either play music from my computer, or play audio from my dvd player to watch movies. i don't need to do both at once. i'd like to find something where everything can be connected, and just depending on what is on (either the dvd player or the computer), everything just works without having to switch cables, etc. what do you think?

i don't need to adjust the volume anywhere but on the receiver itself, or on the DVD player, or on my computer (i read that some people want to control volume "at the switch" - i don't need to do that?)

is this product below safe to use for what i want to do? why do some people on some forums say its not good for the equipment to have audio coming from two audio sources at the same time (devices being on?), regardless if one is listening to both at the same time?

hi! my receiver is a Harmon/Kardon 330B, vintage, and has one set of RCA jacks (1 white, 1 red) for aux input. The DVD player has RCA jacks (white and red), and i know there are a number of ways and adaptors to go from computer to receiver.

i read the thread that you linked. in that thread, along with all the other ones i could find, they are discussing how to get audio from two sources into one receiver so that both sources can play simultaneously. i don't need or want my two sources to play simultaneously. i'm wondering more from a safety perspective if there is any reason i should use the splitter i linked in my initial post? if there is some reason it would damage my equipment, i def. want to know. i saw one more option that i wonder would be correct if indeed the splitter would cause damage: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CKK7J2L/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&smid=ADPE7GPX91ORE&th=1

thank for your reply. could you share why having both sources connected to each other with a cord like this can be a problem? does it damage the equipment somehow? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0159MA936/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_7?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3AX24NME6J6T3

if it does damage the equipment or i shouldn't use for another reason, do you think this product would meet the criteria of input selector? i think it might have a smaller footprint than the one you linked: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CKK7J2L/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_8?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ADPE7GPX91ORE

thank you for your help! i wondered if using the splitter would cause a problem or damage, but haven't been able to find the reason it could be a problem or cause damage....
