Different inputs to same source?
Noob warning. Sorry. I've looked at the forum and Google for a while and have not come up with the answer, so I thought I'd actually ask people that know a lot more than I do.
I am currently using a Denon 1911 and connecting the cable set top box, Blu-ray player, Computer, and Xbox 360 by HDMI. I am also trying to connect my Wii by component video cable.
Not sure if it can be done, as all assignable inputs are taken up. Is there a way to "share" a source without using an AV switcher? I'm not against getting a new receiver, but functionally, I use the video game systems very infrequently and could just plug in the Wii into the same source as the STB and pull the receiver out and disconnect the STB when I wanted to play the game system....but looking for something a little less cumbersome.
Any direction is greatly appreciated.
Also, if not possible, for just a basic receiver connecting these inputs to the HDTV and 7.1 surround, any current recommendations for a new receiver? I've always been a Denon fan (from my parents...That's what they had and I've never used anything else).
