I'm thinking to get a nanoAVR-HD, but 2 HDMI inputs are not enough. I need something like 3 or 4 inputs.

Currently I have a Yamaha AVR (RX-V381) with 4 HDMI inputs. It gets signal from a PC, a PS4, a PS3 (rarely used) and there's an extra HDMI for random stuff. I have 5 speakers plus a subwoofer, all connected to the Yamaha AVR. For video I've a 58" plasma TV, pretty old but works great. All connections, everywhere, are HDMI. No Toslink, no analog.

On the PC I do room EQ with Equalizer APO and MathAudio Room EQ (several instances of the plugin, using EQ APO as plumbing / routing gear). I've used UMIK-1 to calibrate the system. This works fine, but correction is only applied to the PC, and then only while it's running Windows (it's a dual boot machine, also has Linux). There's no room EQ for the PS4 or anything else. I need a better system.

I'm thinking to get an HDMI switch, and the nanoAVR-HD. Use the switch to connect all HDMI sources (PC, PS4, PS3, extra), then plug the switch into the nanoAVR-HD. Use the nanoAVR-HD for room correction, and connect that into the Yamaha AVR, which will then be used as a plain 5.1 amplifier with a single input. I may use one of the extra inputs on the Yamaha for random analog stuff, etc.

Could you recommend a decent, relatively inexpensive HDMI switch with 4 inputs and 1 output that would work well in this scenario? It needs to have an IR remote to switch inputs. It would be nice if it had some indication on the front panel as to which input is currently active (plain LEDs would be fine). I don't need any fancy features.
