I am new here as well and instead of starting a new post, I figured I would add to this being it is basically along the same lines.
I have all my devices attached to the receiver. Everything works great. My problem is, most of the time when I am watching tv, I dont want to have to turn my receiver on just for a normal program. When I am watching regular tv, I have the hdmi from the cable box go directly to the tv. When I want to watch a movie or play games, I disconnect the hdmi cable from the tv to cable box and replace it with an hdmi coming from the receiver to the cable box. Is there a way that I can connect everything without having to switch hdmi cables at the cable box?
