There is other ways to do that without needing dual HDMI.
My PC displays on a plasma, projector and monitor.... all in different rooms and I only have a single HDMI out.
Usually you run it to a surround receiver for audio reasons anyhow. In his class of stuff I would imagine his A/V receiver has multiple HDMI outs.
Any $1000+ receiver now has this.
Even if I had 4 HDMI outs on my PC I would use one... and go to the receiver - then branch off from that output to the displays.
Does he want to run total 7.1 audio and video in multiple locations at the same time? Like two systems?
