Hello all - needed to sign up to this place to get a bit of friendly impartial advice about my setup! Thanks in advance to anyone who might reply! Could someone offer their advice on the home cinema setup I intend to install.. The picture attached should be self explanatory. The purple arrow is coaxial, the orange arrows are optical and the blues are hdmi. What I am trying to understand is if there is any better solution to the one I have formulated? Briefly: * I'd like to be able to have 2 different sources playing at the same time (eg xbox on projector, apple tv on tv) which is why I have chosen the hdmi matrix splitter. * I want the audio from all my inputs to go through my av receiver and output via my diamond 9.1 speakers. This will be using optical for apple tv and xbox and coaxial for virgin media tivo. * I'd like to hook up my inputs to a separate tv in another room. To do this i am planning on attaching a separate hdmi splitter (1x2) to one of the outputs on my hdmi matrix splitter (4x2). The hdmi cable will then run from the 1x2 splitter, through the wall and to the other room where the other tv is located. *I am not particularly interested in 5.1 audio systems. Stereo suits just fine. Am I correct in thinking my setup renders the hdmi inputs and outputs on the av receiver obsolete? If so - is there a cheaper/more streamlined solution? In effect my hdmi matrix means I am only using the av receiver for audio purposes. Thanks!
