Its time to build a new theater... Wow and Ouch at the same time... It will be Projector based, but that is a whole nother discussion... What I am looking for is help creating a short list of receivers with the following features... HDMI In/out - A MUST Network connectivity (HUGE MP3 library, net radio) Only need 5.1, 7.1 would give me a separate Stereo for other use (multi-room) Preamp out for Sub (isn't this standard) Microphone for automatic room compensation 1080 conversion On screen display of everything in all modes Work well with comcast HD DVR Work well with Dish network HD DVR POWER ! More is better I don't need lots and lots of inputs, over the many years, and many theater rooms, I have learned we only USE 2 inputs, Satellite and DVD. The MP3's will be played if I have multi-room capability. I loved Steve Hopkins list, but it was a lot to look up.... Hey Steve... how does my dream list look to you ?
