This may seem old hat to most of you, but christmas saw santa bring us our very first digital flat screen TV. (40" special from Dick smith), and all because I wanted (needed) an Apple TV. The rest of the HT system is : (new) Apple TV with HDMI out AV - Cambridge Audio Azur 540 (lovely sound but only 1 HDMI input which is set to a single HDMI output ) PVR - Humax PVR Smart (SD only) DVD - Marantz 4200 The AV powers a Klipsch centre speaker, B&W DM330 fronts and Interaudio surround speakers Previously the AV put all the video output through s-video cable into a Philips CRT. All was easily controlled through the CA with a single remote. All was wonderful. Now we are waging war with an army of remotes, multiple independent sources, odd image sizing on the TV and a page long list of what to switch where, to watch what we want. The DVD and Humax come through the AV channel, (no s-video available) and apple TV through HDMI. The image is significantly framed through the AV input. After some research I think these are my options forward: 1 Replace the Humax and Marantz with a single BDP / PVR (with twin HD tuners). This unit should also have HDMI in so the apple tv can be incorporated into the mix. The unit then feeds into the CA AV's HDMI and through to the TV (HDMI input). Source selection is controlled via this unit not at the AV level. 2 replace the AV with an HDMI based AV unit which can then switch between any input - Humax, DVD, Apple TV and output it through HDMI (or whatever ) to the TV. Either option also needs to incorporate upscaling (ie. to make the picture fill most of the screen). I'm leaning towards # 1 - it will give us pause TV on all stations / access to Bluray discs / record HD TV. But it does seem a waste of otherwise good working components Gentlemen, et al. Are there any other options ? / thoughts ? / considerations ? Ralph :confused:
