Any AV receiver with an HDMI or optical audio input will suffice. Those with HDMI will also deal with video switching and the V+ box's video as well as audio signal would be conveyed to the receiver via HDMI. The receiver would then passthrough the video from the receiver to a TV, again via HDMI. This option is only practical if your TV has an HDMI input?

What kind of a budget do you have for the AV receiver? Is there anything else that you are expecting from it? Do you have other sources that may also benefit from the AV receiver?

Budget is open ended really but for what I use it for(music occasssionally) I wouldn't want to spend
Bundles.I would be quite happy to go down the decent secondhand route if there's anything you think would be suitable?

I've no idea what is available to you in the classifieds, but can suggest new receivers that meet you budget requirements if you give a budget to work with?

I was thinking around the 300 to 400 pounds mark someone
Was saying the denon n5 is quite good ?

The Denon CEOL Piccolo DRA-N5 isn't actually an AV receiver, it’s a network receiver designed to play music from a wide range of network sources including AirPlay, PCs, iPod, USB drives, internet radio, as well as streaming tunes from Spotify and Last.fm. This wouldn't facilitate you with video switching or the HDMI connections associated withe an AV receiver although it does include a single S/PDIF digital optical audio input. The CEOL would also be limited to 2 channel stereo and has no ability to handle Dolby Digital encoded audio.

OK thanks for that Dante I quite like the idea of a small unit like the denon
For where it will have to live!it would fit in well.are there any receivers that you
Could reccommend that are on the compact side that would suit my needs?

Yep, any of the receiver I listed would enable you to connect you V+ box via a single HDMI connection. The receiver would then be connected to your TV via its HDMI output. The V+ would output both audio and video digitally to the receiver via HDMI and the receiver would output the video to your TV while also processing and amplifying the associated audio. You'd obviously need to add speaker to any of the receivers. All the receivers can also facilitate you with multichannel surround sound if you should want it.
