Any idea how much you "want" to spend on this home theatre system, and how much space in your room you want to use up? Bestbuy has some nice "Home Theatre in a Box's" that are very moderately prices
will run you around $350, and comes with a reciever - solid unit.
That being said you could easily spend that much on a receiver, and thousands of dollars on speakers...but its not necessary. HDMI is really the input you should go with as it will yield a digital picture and digital sound through just one cable, but in order for that you may have to talk to your satellite company as your unit may not be HDMI compatible without upgrading to HD(but that will be a nice present as well)
That Panasonic Blu Ray player is a nice one, my buddy just picked up the Samsung BD1500 for $150-200 on friday night and likes it(I personally just use my Playstation 3)
