I'm trying to decide how important a 3rd HDMI input is. I was all set to buy my first receiver, Yamaha RX-V661 but then started thinking I might want a 3rd HDMI input. The least expensive 3 HDMI input I have found was the Pioneer VSX-82TX.


Two questions:

1) How important is the 3rd HDMI input? (1-Cable, 2-HD disc, 3-Video game???)


2)Any suggestions on another 3 HDMI input receiver in the same ~$1,000 price range?

I've got DirecTV HD taking one, HD-DVD taking one and Blu-Ray taking one. If I ever upgrade my Xbox 360 to the Elite or get a PS3 that would be four HDMI inputs needed or five if I got both game systems.

Perhaps. On the other hand, it'd free one up to choose a receiver based on its sound qualities instead of connectivity. Also, there are cheaper versions of HDMI switchers, too -- I think Monoprice carries some, for example.

Good call thanks.


Applied for the amazon visa with the purchase and got another $30 off


no tax, free shipping, $279
