My setup consists of one satellite receiver and 3 displays in my house. I'm cheap and don't want to buy another satellite box especially since only one tv will be used at a time.
Ultimately, I would like all 3 receivers to be able to change the channel from their location instead of having to go back to the sat room and change it. Running HDMI throughout the house shouldn't be a problem...I can go through the attic and crawl space. I used to own an actiontec mywireless setup and it worked fine for the most part so no complaints there. Not sure if I lost audio or not. I would like to do this for as cheap as possible since I will need to build a new computer/HTPC for my basement jukebox in the next month or so...also have to afford the expensive touchscreen monitor. And possibly buy a new AVR. Also remodeling a bathroom and basement wasn't cheap on the pocketbook.
Here is my setup:
TV 1 1080p Living Room
Onkyo Receiver (only 1 output)
Harmony 650 Remote
TV2 1080p Bedroom
Sony Soundbar/sub with hdmi inputs
Sat Box remote and soundbar remote
TV3 1080p Downstairs
Computer monitor with HDMI inputs
Used down stairs as Touchscreen jukebox and eventually small tv if I can get this working
I'm considering getting a new receiver as well for TV1. Perhaps the Onkyo 818, but will wait for a few more months. I will move the other onkyo downstairs to the TV3 computer/monitor for outside, garage and basement speakers.
Old Pioneer receiver downstairs will go upstairs to the computer room for my dead Klipsch Pro Media amp.
Any suggestions you have for me would be great. I've read through post after post and can't find exactly what I am looking for. I would like to keep the 7.1 audio in my living room as well if possible.
