If you are not using the built-in amp, just about any 12v power supply should do it. Some HU have 4v pre-outs, that would not be suitable for home amps which expect 1v pre-outs.

Yeah, why can't it fade-out, fade-in smoothly? Seems like HDMI switching was an after-thought. One would think after so many updates 1.0, 2.0, 2.1 blah-blah, they would have fix this issue by now.
