I've seen a lot of these receivers have minimal amount of hdmi inputs. Is the expectation on the user to buy a hdmi splitter in order to connect all devices? I would want to connect 4 HDMI devices to a receiver.

Or am I missing something?

Depends on the cost of the receiver in most cases. Mine has 5 inputs and 2 outs (LCD and Projector).

An audiophile likes to talk about how much they spent and how good it sounds.

A DIY'er likes to talk about how little they spent and how good it sounds.

You need to aim higher up the receiver ladder than an HTIB or lowest price AVR probably. Many AVRs have 4 or more HDMI inputs (mine has 7). What is your budget?

Get a standalone receiver and you'll have a minimum of 4 HDMI inputs.
