About a moth ago I purchased a new 46" Samsung LED-LCD TV, and got it all up and running with all of my devices:
- HTPC - HDMI/HDMI
- Xbox - HDMI/HDMI
- Cable - RBG/RCA
- PS2 - RCA/RCA
- SNES - Antenna Ch. 4
- NES - Antenna Ch. 3
Over black Friday, I decided to upgrade to 5.1 audio, and purchased theYamaha RX-V365
I am entirely dissatisfied
with this receiver, given that the HDMI subsystem will not output audio to the 5.1 speakers. (It sends the audio along to the TV). Everything would have been perfect
if only the TV would output 5.1 over the optical out, but, alas it does not.
I at least
want to be able to push the 3 HD inputs and the RCA inputs in through a receiver, and if possible, would like to do the same for Antenna-in Ch 3 and 4.
What class of receiver am I looking for? Should I keep the option of a 7.1 system open? I guess I would also like to keep some expansion room open (maybe an extra HDMI input as well) for the future.
I have been looking around for days trying to decipher the specs of various receivers, and am in need of some... *ahem*... professional help.
Any help would be much appreciated.
