I currently have an AV amp plugged into the TV. Plugged into it are the Wii, XBox 360, Tivo and Apple TV. The Wii is using Component Cables, everything else is via HDMI.
On June 27th LOTR:Extended Edition comes out on Blu-Ray. I therefore, quite obviously, must own a Blu Ray player on said date.
I now have two problems:
1) I don't have any more HDMI inputs on my AV amp, so I'll either need a switch to allow one of the inputs to take multiple inputs, or I'll need a new AV amp that can take 4 inputs (and that should probably be 5, for futureproofing/the Wii 2 coming out). The switch seems a lot more likely for now - so I'd appreciate any recommendations for a decent HDMI switch.
2) I'll need a Blu-Ray player.I know that a lot of them take an age to actually start playing discs - so one that's user-friendly in this regard would be awesome. If the DVD part can be made multiregion that would also be a plus (not that I have more than three DVDs from the US, but it might turn out handy).
Edit: (3) Streaming music/video from via UPNP (or ideally SMB) would also be a plus. Not essential though.
