    You can either use an HDMI splitter to divide the single output into two from an AV receiver or you can utilise a receiver that incorporates more than one output.

    Thanks Dante did think of that but then was worried about picture and sound deterioration ... Only thing is that Apple TV does not have dual unless I get two of them which might have to be the thing ...lol

    A signal going via an active HDMI splitter will suffer no degradation. The output will be the same as the signal going into such a splitter.

    Apple TV? Why would you assume you need one with dual output? You simply connect it to the AV receiver via HDMI and split the signal coming out of the receiver. The same goes for any of your other HDMI equiped source components. All your source components are connected to the AV receiver via HDMI. The AV receiver processes and deals with the audio while the video signal is passed on out of the receiver via its HDMI output or outputs.
