I have a 5 year old Samsung DLP TV with only 1 HDMI port. Need a HDMI port from the Receiver to the TV and one HDMI port from the PS3 to the TV. My question is is there any type of adaptor that I can use to split the HDMI port for right now?  I'm getting a new TV early next year which will have more HDMI ports.

Monoprice has many extremely affordable HDMI splitters. Most are under $100. Gefen has more expensive options, but I've heard good things... good luck!

Why don't you run the PS3 through the receiver?

This is all new to me. This is all the equipment that I will be using listed below. Can someone tell me if this is correct way to connect the equipment. Using all HDMI Cables except for CD Player. I would appreciate anyone's opinion

Blu-Ray to the Reciver

If you have enough ports on your receiver, that is the preferred way of doing it. That way you can do all the switching from the receiver. The only time you wouldn't want to would be if you are watching 3d content on an older receiver that won't pass that video signal through, but I don't think that applies to you.

Yes I do have plenty of ports on my receiver.i will be doing a 3D tv within the next year. I do have that problem solve with the Panasonic DMP-BDT350 Blu-Ray which has two HDMI ports that will pass that video signal through.
Just want to thank you for all your help.
