I bought a HDMI switch from ebay last month and by not reading the ad very closely, bought a switch that does not work with HDDVR's from E*, D* or cable. I really want to use the HDMI port on both my HR20 & DVD player, but my TV only has one HDMI input. Any recommendations before I start buying HDMI switch, after HDMI switch?

Just bought a new receiver in February when other died and it did not have that option. That was before I upgraded my DVD player. Would like to avoid buying yet another receiver, if at all possible.
