Re: The "Dark" Side of Going All HDMI
I have the Monoprice 4x2 HDMI switch. You can send any of the 4 inputs to either of the two outputs, or to both outputs. I have a DVR and PS3 connected to the switcher, with one of the outputs to the Onkyo 605, and the other directly to the Samsung HL-T5087. Works great. I can have either source piped through the 605/ HT speakers, or just use the TV's speakers.
Highly recommended. Only about $85, too.
