I have several receivers, but my main one hooked to my pc right now is a Onkyo RZ810. I absolutely hate the fact that pretty much all receivers amde with 4K in them, all manufactures have ditched the 5.1/7.1 analog in, opting for just outs. This does me no good at all when I want to pc game with some older titles, or ones that dont have a 5.1 or 7.1 option under audio. Only a very very few have this option, and without it, then it only outputs in stereo either through hdmi or spdif. So I was thinking of hooking up a 2nd receiver, my sony, that doesnt have hdmi, but has 2 sets of analog ins. So what Im looking to do is try and find a switch that will take in 2 sets of speaker inputs from both my amps, but switch between the 2 so Im only using one set of speakers, for I dont really want to have 14 sets of speakers all around me.

So what I want to do is run my 7.1 from my onkyo, and 7.1 from my sony, into a switch, and can go back and forth with depending on what amp I am using. Im not sure if anything like this is even made for what I want to do, for I googled, and went on ebay and amazon looking for something like this, but cannot seem to find it, heck they prolly dont make anything like this, and Im the only nut wanting, or looking for something like this for all I know.

But Im open to suggestions if you know of such thing, or a work around that I can put together or buy to do this. I have bad butt speakers, all matching, with a great polk sub, and I dont want to have to get more speakers again, just for one amp, that will only be used for its analog 5.1/7.1 inputs so I can game on it. I love my Onkyo, but dang, why they got to ditch that kind of input, and please dont make me laugh suggesting I get a Logitech speaker setup and put that around me, for Id rather then just play in stereo, for at least my walls will rattle when thing blow up, or guns go off :p

I tried to see if there was a analog 5.1/7.1 to hdmi converter, but they make only ones to rip that audio from a hdmi source, but not the other way around.

TIA, and look forward to what some of you may come up with. im pretty good with the McGyver stuff, but cannot wrap my head around how to do this one :(

Well, decided the heck with it, and as much as I just LOOOOOOOVe my Onkyo, it will not work here by my desk. Going back to my Denon AVR-1910 for it has 4 hdmi and the analogs in. I have a Xbox one, 360 wii u, nvidia shield, 2 tap decks, PS2, laser disc, and a 300 disc sony dvd player going to it, figured out with the several switches I have in analog and hdmi, I can still hook all this crap up to the denon unit. So my son is tearing it all apart, and gonna miss the 130+ watts rms my onkyo has, and have to live with 90 again :(
But at least everything will work as intended, pc games now as well too after we are done.

My son will be happy for then he gets the Onkyo back in the living room he plays his xbox one x at. Sorta sad day for Jay.
