How do I connect a home theater system?
I'm in the market for a home theater system, but it turns out I don't know how one would be connected. I feel a bit silly, being quite familiar with plugging things in, in addition to being an audio engineer, but home audio has eluded me.
What makes sense to me does not seem to be the case. I assumed I would plug any devices I want to use into the receiver with HDMI, and then that would plug in to the TV... but most systems I'm seeing have one HDMI input, or none at all.
Basically, how do I connect the following so that I have all of the audio going through the system and not the TV?
Antenna - coaxial
Wii - component
Xbox 360 - HDMI
Apple TV - HDMI
I'm rather confused.
