Looking for a receiver, diagram inside

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am getting ready to buy a projector, and would like an easy way of switching between my current TV and the projector. The diagram is what I have in mind.
As you can see, I need something that would take 4 HDMI inputs, and have 2 HDMI outputs. I also want the ability to output the sound to my TurtleBeach wireless headphones as well as a sound system, which I do not yet have.

Do I have any simple options here?

As long as there's only one active HDMI input and only one HDMI output at a time, what u have is good.

After you have zero in on your receiver's options, come back and ask whether there are any HDMI handshaking (annoying) issue with those.

What do you mean, I am good? I can't seem to find any receivers that can take 4 inputs and have 2 outputs.

For ?????, substitute speaker cable.

For AVR, you may have to spend more than you think but there are many with dual HDMI outputs. Here are 2 examples:

Yeah, the price of the receiver is what I was afraid of. Are there no reasonably priced options?

Can I just put get a receiver that has 4 ins and 1 out, and use an HDMI splitter?

I do not know much about that part of the market but you can do the leg work by scanning the Denon, Onkyo, Marantz, Yamaha, etc. websites.

Essentially, that is what is in the AVRs but with more options. Most splitters will output only what the lessor of the displays permits.

AVR is Audio Video Receiver, right?

Also, what do you mean by lesser display? My TV is 1080p, and my projector will be the same.

1. Yes - AVR means Audio Video Receiver
2. HDMI switches can be trickey when adding another link in the chain

Putting a Monoprice 1 X 2 splitter in between the AVR and the TV/Projector would work great. Enable you to get a reasonable AVR and the splitter is cheap.

Unless you plan on watching different things on them at the same time.
