Hello all, Just joined the Home Theater Forum community and hoping to get some assistance. About a year ago I inherited a somewhat ancient, but working and faithful, Sony DAV-FX10 DVD Dream Home Theater System. Up until I inherited this system I had just been using a soundbar to meet my needs. All my media is viewed via an HTPC with XBMC. My HTPC's video is connected to the TV via HDMI and the audio is connected to this ancient receiver by an optical audio cable (I believe it's called S/PDIF?). Because this receiver doesn't support HDMI it's becoming less and less practical for me to use. I'm looking to keep the speakers for now but ditch the receiver/DVD player/monstrosity they connect to. In short, I'm looking for a decent, affordable, reliable receiver that can support 5.1 audio (I'm planning on using the speakers from the DAV-FX10 for now and slowing upgrading piece by piece). I would be connecting my HTPC to the receiver via HDMI from the Nvidia GTX 580 graphics card. Most of my media has DTS surround but the more surround sound formats it can decode the better. I've done my best to read intro and noobie guides to receivers but for someone who doesn't know all that much about surround sound it can make your head spin a bit. Any recommendations on entry level receivers that would meet my needs would be fantastic. Thanks for all your help and happy to be part of the forums.
