Well, assuming you get a new receiver that has HDMI inputs, and will do upconversion of any inputs (component, composite, etc) to HDMI, it could be as simple as this:
PS3: One HDMI cable to the receiver
Direct TV:If this has HDMI, then one HDMI to the receiver. If not, then one component connection and one optical connection to the receiver.
Receiver to TV: One HDMI cable.
(Optional if you use over the air antenna for HD. One optical cable from TV to receiver)
Do that and then get yourself a harmony universal remote and you will be a happy person.
I have 3 devices, PS3, Cable box, upconverting DVD player. All of these are connected with HDMI to the receiver, and I run one HDMI cable from the receiver to the TV. I have the TV sound disabled, I listen to everything through my surround sound speakers.
