Getting ready to get a new receiver (most likely Yamaha or Denon). I still have a good ole' Yamaha RX-V2500. It's great, other than being big, hot, and having no HDMI connections.
SOoo, I have convinced myself I need two HDMI outputs on the new receiver, which of course drives the price up a bit more. I have one TV, a Panasonic BD player, and an HD cable box. Presently I have the cable box and BD player video going to the TV via HDMI and I have different settings on the TV inputs for each source. I guess that's my main justification for wanting two HDMI outputs. But what do you think? Is that necessary? Are there reasons NOT to use two HDMI outputs that way?
Why did YOU want or need two HDMI outputs on your receiver?
