I have the Dish 811 and just purchased a Samsung upconverting DVD player. I ended up ordering a Panny XR55 as it now has what I sold my XR50 for-7.1, 80hz crossover, and DPL IIX. Anyway, I wanted a way to utilize the 811 and DVD player with the one HDMI input on my sony widescreen. I considered the JVC 402 digi amped receiver but it is sketchy if it performs as well as the XR50 and it is $400. Well many may know this already, but Amazon has a DVI/HDMI 2-1 mechanical switch for $55 shipped. The HDMI switching receivers are pricey, this may prove to be a cheap alternative.
