    It has been about 6 years since I had mine hooked up.Looking to get back into it. What I have and need hooked up:

    PC with DVI to HDMI converter and optical toslink out

    Ps3 HDMI

    Xbox360 HDMI

    Cable box HDMI

    My main concern is that the unit needs to be able to combine the optical toslink audio signal with a hdmi video input and output via hdmi with 5.1.

    I own mostly Sonly electronics but am open.

    Budget is sub $300


    Thank You

    You are going to have trouble finding a good receiver with more than 3 HDMI inputs for under $300. I believe Sony has 1 receiver that is in your range with 4 HDMI inputs, but most around here try to steer clear of Sony receivers. If your price range is in stone, I would suggest looking at a 3 HDMI receiver from Denon or Onkyo and then using a DVI --> Component cable for your computer.

    I think the Onkyo 507 has 4 HDMI inputs.

    Onkyo TXSR507, it is as close too 300 as I would go!

    I'd definitely go with the Onkyo over the Sony.
    Sony has great tvs and blu ray players, but you won't find much love around here for their receivers, until you get into the ES line.
    Good luck!

    You can get the Onkyo HT-RC160 for $300 at the link below. That has 5 HDMI inputs.
