I'm looking for a home audio receiver + speakers to serve a few different purposes. Can you help me find a good one?

I'm piecing together my home theater, and need to buy a decent receiver that will do the following:
1) At least 5.1 audio -- including support for a (powered?) sub.
2) Multiple speaker selection; I have outdoor speakers that I'd like to hook into this as well. Ideally, I'd be able to listen to whatever either indoors only, outdoors only, or both. Do receivers ever support three channels? Eventually, I'd like to hook up a third set of speakers in the basement, and be able to switch between all of them.
What brands should I be looking at? Links to specific receivers that do what I need it to do would be appreciated.
Budget: under $250.
