Here is my current equipment: Dish Network HD box (HR21-700) - HDMI connection TV - HDMI connection Cheepo Samsung up converting DVD player - Composite or HDMI Monoprice HDMI Amplifier (one source to two out) 19" Sharp LC-19SB14U widescreen HDTV LCD 46" Samsung 1080p (cant remember the model #) Old Sony receiver with Boston Acoustic speakers and sub(no HDMI or Component - has S-Video and Optical Audio) I currently have the TV doing all the audio out no matter the source via Optical Audio because of the receivers lack of HDMI. The two TV's are on the same wall but in different rooms (shared wall is bedroom and kitchen with the smaller TV in the kitchen, all components are in bedroom with the Samsung). I mirror the satellite connection to both TV's via the HDMI Amplifier but would prefer it mirrored the same content no matter what the source - thats the #1 reason I want an HDMI capable receiver. So I think this is my minimal requirements for a new receiver: One HDMI Out Three HDMI In Min 5.1 surround A/B Speaker output Priced at most $500 I plan on hooking everything into the receiver and then using the HDMI out to my Amplifier that would then go to each TV. The TV In the kitchen currently uses its internal speakers, but I plan to replace them in a year or two with in celling speakers hooked up to the receiver (hence the A/B speaker need) - Im assuming that receivers don't strip the audio stream from its HDMI out. Any suggestions?
