Default Getting the right reciever? Comment on my setup pic

I've been browsing around trying to find a stereo reciever that can support the setup I'm hoping for in the future... does anyone know of a stereo reciever that can handle this???

Inputs:
1. 3 Audio from Computer (Center, Front, Rear)
2. 2 Audio from TV/DVR (Composite/RCA Left and Right)
3. 1 HDMI from TV/DVR
4. 1 HDMI from Computer

Outputs:
1. 3 Audio to Computer Subwoofer (Center, Front, Rear)
2. 3 Audio to TV Subwoofer (Center, Front, Rear)
3. 1 HDMI to Computer
4. 1 HDMI to TV/DVR
5. 2 RCA sound to Computer (Left, Right)
Basically this well let me watch movies from my computer onto my TV setup.
Or vice versa: Watch TV on my computer.

Is the computer in the same room as the TV? If so, why not combine both systems into one?

Cool, a topic im REALLY good at, in the past 4 years, i have not seen a receiver with 2 hdmi out's that can be used at same time, or same time with different a/v to each tv / computer.

Its harder because hdmi does more than just audio and video through the cable.

Why do you want to do this any ways ?

For future compatibilty you might want to ensure that you have a full bank of pre-amp outputs, so that at a later date you can bypass the internal power amplifiers.

Id keep the 2 systems seperate, if you want to use your computer to see you rmovies use hdmi, it can be also used for audio too, but get a decent one.


If i were u i would just isolate the 2 systems.


You could also spend 900$ on a nice 1 year old Processor, then build / buy a 5-7 channel amplifier.
