I already own a (HTIB). It's a Sony DAV-FX900W. It's your basic upconverting DVD player with 5.1 surround sound speakers. It has 1 HDMI output. I just ordered a Sony ES STR-DA2400ES home theater receiver. It has 4 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output. How will the DAV-FX900W perform if I connect it to the new Sony receiver? Does anyone have experience doing this? Eventually I'm going to buy new surround speakers and connect them directly to my new receiver (the new receiver supports 7.1 surround sound) but I was trying to hold off on doing that if my HTIB will be ok connected via HDMi to the new receiver. Also what is the best way to connect all of my components: Samsung 61 inch LED DLP TV-3 HDMI inputs Sony ES STR-DA2400ES-4 HDMI inputs/1 HDMI output Sony DAV-FX900W-1 HDMI output Sony Blu-Ray BDP-S550-1 HDMI output DirecTV HR21-100 Satellite receiver-1 HDMI output Xbox 360 Elite-1 HDMI output Nintendo Wii-Component cords Sony CDP-CX225 200 CD disc changer I have a new Harmony One universal remote also on the way to control all of these components. My main worry is using an HTIB with the new receiver... I got the new receiver to be the "brains" of my setup and also because it provides more HDMI inputs. I haven't ever connected an HTIB to a receiver before so anyone with experience doing it please chime in.
