Sup guys, after some research i decided to buy a receiver (was getting Asus Xonar ST originally), this model:

, there is another model TX-SR508 but some reviewers claim it stopped working after a week or months. I've got some doubts on how to setup my receiver.

1. Can i plug anything using HDMI to my receiver, and it connects to my TV using another HDMI? Is there a problem having my PC sending signals from a different cable? i mean hdmi from gpu and s/pdif from mobo? How can i watch something from my pc and hear it?
2. Can i use 1 receiver for different zones? I want to setup the receiver for my bedroom at first, will i be able to use it for a different room later? What do i need to do that?
3. What speakers do you recommend for a decent setup? I've got around $600 for Receiver - Speakers but i think i may buy a 2.1 at first to save for BD. I've seen a lot of love for Polk speakers, any other suggestion?
4. What BD player should i get? I guess all i need is HDMI out from the player right?
5. I'm guessing I should buy something like to install the speakers around my bedroom.
