    I'm looking to buy an avr that is compatible with apple tv. I'm looking for one that is cheap, user friendly, supports 720 video, and has at least 4 hdmi inputs/ports. I don't need anything fancy, it can even be used, as long as it supports apple tv.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Use ANY AVR if u hook up ATV directly to TV and let TV do the switching.

    At this point, that's sounds like any receiver on the market. The starting price point for new "home theater" receivers is the $200-$250 area. Any of these recievers will have 3-4 HDMI in and support at the very least 5.1 Dolby Digital & DTS. The AppleTV only supports 5.1 Dolby Digital.

    If you can find a used receiver that only has 1 or 2 HDMI inputs, you can buy HDMI switchers that automatically switch to whichever HDMI port is active. I bought one of these for $30 (3 HDMI in) and it helped extend the life of my very nice Denon receiver that only has 2 HDMI inputs. Nothing was wrong with the receiver, it just ran out of HDMI.

    Check your local best buy for open box and clearance receivers. Also for the money Denon refurbs from accessories4less are good deals.

    That still leaves a large number of options out there. What are your additional criteria to narrow down the options? What's your specific budget? Don't just assume that your notion of "cheap" is universal.
