Hi there, I was wondering if anyone would mind sharing some advice on how to set up my first HT? Basically, given the "fixed" parts of the set up, I've got two choices: a) I embed 8ch audio (from separate analogue channels) in to an HDMI connection and send it, along with video, through an AV amp, or b) I find a really fancy amp that can take 8ch analogue audio and knows to use it when it's switched to a particular HDMI video source. Now, my knowledge is limited on this (which is why I'm asking you guys!) but I think the chances of b) working out are fairly slim. Hell, you can't even use trabble/bass controls with 8ch analogue input on most of the amps I've looked at! So what I want to know is this: Does such an amp exist? And if not, are there any sensibly priced devices that will embed 8ch audio in HDMI?
