I finally retired the mid 80's-era Sony reciever and Fisher speakers and got modern stuff; a Denon 2807 and a Definative Technology surround speakers to flesh out my HDTV.

"Sure I can hook it up," I told the guy at Magnolia, "I've done in-wall wiring, did my own DirecTV, wireless network, I can even solder if neeeded."

I get the whole pile of stuff home and spread out all over the floor (so to speak) and discover that Denon wants me to plumb all my video sources through the tuner/amp just like the audio sources.

I admit that I've made quite a leap from what I was using to what I have now, but the notion of the 'video plumbing' being routed/switched by the 'audio thing' is pretty foreign to me. Looks like everything cable is meant to go into the Denon and then one single HDMI cable goes to the monitor.

I guess this is the only way I can live off 1 remote. Is this the new standard for how things work? Do I just need to be thawed out and assimilated to this post-ice age world?
