Check out the Energy Take 5.2 setup ( http://www.energy-speakers.com/take5...speakers1.html ). they are a decent sounding setup for your price range.
|So not to gloat too much, but for my $500 I think I did better than any of the HT in a Box setups you are considering.|
Of course now I have to find a small sub. But some good deal will come along!

I was looking for the same thing, but I couldn't find anything with video switching. I finally settled on the Onkyo 494 receiver.($289.00 at CC) and the HTD Level One 5.1 set ($149.00 at www.hometheaterdirect.com ). The Onkyo is a high current amp and the htd set comes with an 80 W sub. I have been extremely pleased with this setup. Good luck.

The Kenwood HTB-504 has looked like a great low cost solution to me as well (after way too much research). But the new Denon DHT-682xp (right now $549 at Sears or less with pricematch) looks nice. Less powerful sub, but much better speaker quality and its a Denon. If anyone has been able to check out this new HT in a box, please let us know.
