Just get some splitters for your HDMI connections and a mixer for all of your audio out.

HDMI Splitters


or HDMI Auto Switch

I'm having trouble finding a good audio switch but you don't need a fancy switch. You would just need something with two 3.5 mm female ends and one male end (make sure both female ends have dual channel and not split channel). You can find these at places like Radio Shack.

Wouldn't it be cheaper and easier to install a BR optical in your case?
