Something like this is good:
I use a similar one for my bedroom. My htpc and my tivo are connected via HDMI
But really it gets more complicated than this. You also want to buy a good set of speakers and a subwoofer.
That's a bit overkill. If I understand him correctly he already has speakers he would like to utilize. Kind of silly to replace those with better speakers and a receiver that costs more than what he already has.
@DOC: Do your current speakers have a way to be powered? Do you have a receiver for them already and just want a way to get 5.1 sound?
