Here is what I have: a Dish Hopper DVR receiver with a HDMI port, a Blu-Ray player with a HDMI port, a set of good surround sound speakers, a plasma TV with 2 HDMI ports, a Macbook air , and a new Ipod touch.
What I want to do is to use those speakers to play my music on the Ipod wirelessly and when watching DVD movies.
I thought of buying an Appletv and a 4-way HDMI switch for the TV, but it seems silly to have the TV on all the time just to play music on the Ipod. I could buy an Airplay express and plug the speakers into it, but how would I use those same speakers when watching a DVD? How would it link up with the AppleTV?
I guess I could buy an A/V receiver that supports Apple wireless audio streaming, but I didn't want to spend $300.
Any other suggestions? Thanks.
