Here's the situation, I have 3 tvs in the man cave, the middle tv is the one connected to the receiver via the hdmi out on the Yamaha rxv667 receiver. I would like to connect the flanking tvs to the receiver so that I can hear the audio, while keeping the video from the original directv receiver on the main tv. I currently have a Yamaha rxv667, and you can do what I want by pulling up the on screen menu and switching to the appropriate audio out for the video input. That requires a lot of remote clicks, and I really just want to set a harmony remote wher I click the right button and it leaves the video on the receiver alone but switches the audio input to an optical in from one of the flanking directv receivers. Can i do this easily with the Yamaha? If not, I have no problem buying a new receiver. Just tell me which one.

You need an AVR with a Zone 2 monitor output in which you could pass the audio/video from the 2nd or 3rd DTV box to one or both of the additional TV's using an HDMI splitter from the Zone 2 monitor output. Audio would come from the 2nd and/or 3rd TV speakers unless you have another set of Zone 2 speakers setup. This configuration would allow you to keep playing the audio/video from the primary DTV box. The lowest Denon AVR with this feature is the X3100W which we have in stock. Please call for pricing and additional information if interested.

Actually after further research most of the current onkyo offerings support taking video stream from hdmi but allowing you to change the audio inputs so I can run the audio in from the directv receivers via rca or optical into audio only inputs.
