You want a video card with video "INPUTS"??? It sounds like you're talking about a TV Capture Card, not a Video Card.

Can you explain your setup (or what you want to do with it) a little bit better?

I am afraid if you ever find a card you are looking for, it will cost more than your AVR.

You can replace the video switching section of AVR with a standalone HDMI switch, or get a monitor/TV with multiple HDMI inputs.

AVR is a flexible switch of various inputs, HTPC is best at sourcing the signal, not switching between various inputs.

Well, there is this guy Blackmagic Intensity Pro HDMI Not too bad at $189.00 USD. If you are sure that is what you need...

Audio vs. HDMI

An audio pwr. amp, regardless of how many discrete channels it has, is still an Audio Amplifier.

Are you talking about replacing your A/V Integrated Amp, OR replacing your A/V Receiver?

You seem to need an HDMI switcher, I'm guessing?

The HDMI (final version undetermined) copy protection code WILL be broken, just like all copy protection schemes before it.

You can get a cheap HDMI switch from Monoprice, then control it with an IR blaster. On the other hand, I've seen new 5.1 HDMI receivers advertised for under $300. It's traditional to regard receivers as somewhat evil, but they do provide enormous value for money.

Yes, $300 HDMI Receivers Do provide great value.....for people who think that "Home Theater In A Box", is actually what they heard/felt in a Real Theater.
