A year ago, I bought a new TV with HDMI capability and hooked it up to my PC to work as a monitor (with a straight HDMI cable connection). IT. IS. AWESOME.
I just moved into a new place with more room and now want to connect my surround sound system (5 speakers) to this setup as well.
This is the receiver I'm considering purchasing and from what I can tell, will do what I need.
Extra potentially pertinent info:
PC has two HDMI ports (one on the video card)
Nintendo Wii connected directly to TV via RCA cables
BluRay player connected to TV via HDMI cable
I want my setup to allow me to use the surround sound at all times (when watching broadcast TV, when using the TV as the PC monitor, when using the BluRay player and when using the Wii (this is the least important)). I'm assuming the TV will connect to the receiver (via HDMI) and the PC will also connect to the receiver (via HDMI) and all other hook-ups will remain as-is.
Thanks in advance for any advice or tips on how to make this easy! This will be my dream setup so I'm excited to get it right.

I tried to see Girl With the Dragon Tattoo today, but ran into sound problems on two different screens at the same theater. The symptoms were fairly specific, and I was curious if anyone familiar with cinema sound systems could tell me what the problem was. [more inside]
