I would like to thank everyone in advance. I am just very new to HT setups and would like the best setup possible with the hardware I am looking to use. I am starting to order everything I want to use and am not sure the exact cables I will need and what is the best way to do it. Am I going to need an HDMI splitter since my TV only has 2 HDMI ports on it? I will need to have these all connected Sony Bravia KDL-46V2500 http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs...1&langId=-1&productId=11040895#specifications Sony STR-DH500 Receiver http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs...10151&langId=-1&productId=8198552921665788586 Apple Mac Mini http://www.apple.com/macmini/specs.html DirecTV HR21 Reciever http://tech.yahoo.com/ps/directv-group-hr21-700/1995451050 Hauppauge HD PVR http://www.buy.com/prod/hauppauge-h...sonal-video-recorder/q/loc/111/208088259.html Playstation 3 My main goal I would like to be able to watch saved shows and movies through Plex and the Mac Mini on my TV. I would like to be able to watch and record DVD's from the PS3, through the Hauppauge onto the Mac Mini. I would like to be able to record shows from my DirecTV box and DVR onto my Mac Mini through the Hauppauge. I already have the TV, PS3, receiver with surround sound, and DirecTV box already setup and running. I am wanting to add the Mac Mini and Hauppauge to my setup but am not positive how the best way to connect all the cables. The Mac Mini is already in the mail. I bought the LogiTech Dinovo Mini but I am not to thrilled with it so I think it is going to get returned. So mainly I am just not positive what cables and hardware I need to order from Monoprice and since it takes it 4-5 days to deliver to Florida, I prefer to get everything at once! And I was planning on using this to connect the Mini to HDMI, this is the right cable correct? http://www.monoprice.com/products/p...cs_id=1041912&p_id=4852&seq=1&format=2&style= This for the optical audio out http://www.monoprice.com/products/p...cs_id=1022902&p_id=1556&seq=1&format=2&style= Thanks!
