Damn I'm good.

Given the reviews, however, I wouldn't count on anything spectacular.

I doubt the ATV ever turns off, but I haven't got one.

I think if you want a DAC built in to a HDMI switcher, you are indeed looking at a new receiver.

I wish I could remember the model of the Monoprice switcher I tossed. You can probably find my post if you have patience enough with the search engine. It just didn't work well at all. I'm normally not a NexxTech fan but I got fed up and went to 'The Source" and bought one and it has been working flawlessly since I put it in. It even switches the PS3 which proved the most finicky of devices in my earlier two failures.

Edit:
Probably does not need to be said but I prefer ones with an IR remote. That way you can program it into your universal remote macros and remove any auto-sensing concerns from the picture.

Wow, you are a buzzkill today, Murph.

I don't HAVE to have the DAC built-in to the switcher, I just need to perform both of those functions if I want zone2 audio from the Apple TV. Whether I buy a new receiver or not; the ATV doesn't have analog audio out, and I'm (still) not aware of any receivers that will let you decode two DAC streams in different zones simultaneously.

I'm with you on the IR control; don't know how we'd live without the MX-700.

I'm not buying a new receiver.

Yet.

I'm watching the big brother to my current Yamaha.
Once the new cable is anounced its value should drop another hundred or two.

Well, the first link is appropriate but I'm a bit concerned about the dead bug.

My intent was to positively influence his life by helping him avoid a product that would have a negative impact. I didn't want to exterminate him. Of course, if I were to exterminate anyone, it would involve giant blue lasers and Dalek sound effects.

Blue lasers sound an awful lot like blue LEDs. Put me down as wanting termination that way.

I thought the general goal here was to post photos and make other people spend their money.

Did I misread the mission statement?

I still haven't done anything about this a year later.

Man, I suck.

I did get the AppleTV, but am currently just unplugging/replugging when I want to switch between that and the XBox. Plus, I got a Chromecast that is still in the box.

It doesn't look like Monoprice is really much cheaper than the other Chinese crap available at Amazon.

Anything new here?

And, no, I'm still not buying a new receiver.
