I am looking for a budget receiver ($400 - $600 to spend). I want minimum of 3 HDMI inputs, good quality sound, upconversion. I will be using it to connect my Verizon DVR (Motorola box) and Samsung Blu-Ray player to my Hitachi LCD HD TV. I have looked at the Yamaha 663, Hardan Kardon 253/353 and Pioneer 1018. Yamaha has only 2 HDMI inputs and reviews I have read aren't that great, Harman Kardon has had many firmware issues and some reviews on Pioneer indicate sound quality is not on par with other manufacturers. Any ideas of a unit that would meet my needs?
