Apologies if these are noobish questions but I can't seem to find the right info. My father currently has a polk iht3000 hooked up to a tv, blu-ray and some other device. He also has/had a receiver hooked up to some decent tower speakers for music. The receiver recently died and won't put out the left channel anymore. Is it possible to get an avr to use as a switch for everything. So for example:
stb -> avr -> tv -> soundbar
bd -> avr -> tv -> soundbar
cd -> avr -> tower
ipod -> avr -> tower
Is this possible? If not is there any way I can force the 2 to live in harmony or will they be forced to lead separate lives?
