I have no idea if such a thing even exists, but if you're a sports guy, multiple outputs would be kinda nice - you can have one football game on the big TV and then another one on a side TV. (I don't know if such a thing even exists - I had never contemplated it until seeing it discussed here.)
My receiver doesn't have HDMI at all, so I'm running cables from my various devices directly to my TV. I've been close to pulling the trigger a couple of times on buying a new receiver, but it's just been one of those "do I really want to mess with what's working" type of things.

I have discovered--much to my disgust--that this thing won't handle non-HDCP inputs. I get the requirement to require an HDCP-capable output for the HDMI, but the fact that it won't take any digital inputs that aren't encumbered is just AstroTurf.
It also can't switch analog inputs between the composite and component outputs (eg, composite in, component out or vice-versa), which is remotely understandable in the context of an HDMI-based system.
Finally, you can't relabel the inputs, so if you're attaching both an Xbox and an PS3, you'll have to decide which one is "Game" and which one is "X" or whatever input you use instead.
