Plug your cables in and leave your receiver alone. You'll be just fine. I've owned Onkyo, Denon, Yamaha, Sony, and currently am running a Pioneer Elite. I've had no problems with any of them via HDMI. Don't buy super-huge HDMI cables that put strain on plugs, and don't move your receiver to a new location every other week. This can be said for any type of input, not just HDMI.
That said, avoiding HDMI is about the stupidest decision, since that's what gives you all your high-def video and audio codecs. May as well buy a 15 year old receiver for $50 bucks off craigslist if you're going to be afraid of using HDMI cables.
