    Best Deal On A 4 to 1 HDMI Switcher...and other questions.

    I am a bit out of the loop regards HDMI 1.3/2.0. If I gather correctly, 1.3 is the current standard for the cable. And as far as a switcher goes, does the 2.0 qualification come into play? I need one that will switch fiber optic as well as HDMI inputs. My Panny BD Player has direct...

    O.K..I bought an Onkyo HT R530 (Same as the HTS&*)) for 40 bucks....

    ...and I am wondering what I can do with it. It claims 7.1 but is actually 6.1 in it's decoding. Thing is, the speaker diagram shows the surround back as next to the listener and surround as being behind that. That doesn't make sense to me. Any ideas..?? Also...any upgrade to this anyone...
