I am new to this. I've read a lot about it but it seems the only way to make this work would be spending hundreds of dollars. Maybe someone here can help me out. Here are the items I have (or that I am about to buy) 1) Xbox 360 Kinect 2) Blue Ray player (I need to buy one. I am looking for a really basic one if possible) 3) Satellite TV (DISH that has a receiver and I believe it lets me use HDMI cable to hook up to projector) 4) Projector BenQ W1060 (I am going to buy this one this week probably) http://www.globalaud...Q/W1060-002.jpg 5) Sound System (not sure which one to use but it would be for movies, gaming, TV. Basically everything) 6) Regular PC with DVI and VGA output My goal: I want to be able to use everything (PC, Xbox, Satellite TV and Blue Ray player) on my projector and I want al of them to use the sound system. Is it possible? What would I need? Where would each device be connected to? How much do you think I would have to spend? Thank you very much!

you need an AVR ( Audio Video Receiver) that has HDMI inputs. Each component will have a HDMI cable from it to the AVR. the HDMI cable will carry video and audio signals. You will need 1 HDMI cable to run from the AVR to the projector. You will need an adapter for the PC to go from DVI to HDMI. DVI does not carry audio. A better option would be to upgrade the video card on the PC to one that has HDMI output.

Quote:Based on the list of devices you are planning to purchase, a few hundred dollars for a decent A/V receiver is a drop in the bucket.

I know man. that's what happens when a poor college student gets a few bucks... I try to do the impossible... maybe I just have high expectations and little money...

sorry, the previous question about the receiver was meant to go to Gregg
