Surround Sound Receiver Recommendation?

I'm currently using a Yamaha HTR-6130 receiver for my home surround sound system. I'm looking to replace it with something that offers more HDMI inputs (it has 2) and additional Digital/Optical input options (it only has 2 - one for the cable input and one for CD player).
I run my dvd player into the receiver (via HDMI and audio cables), as well as Apple TV (using HDMI - although I use an HDMI switch for the cable and Apple TV). Because there's only one digital/Optical input, I have to swap the Digital/Optical input of the Apple TV with the cable which is a PIA (I tried a switch with no success).
I'm basically looking to eliminate the switches for HDMI and Digital/Optical in.
I see that most receivers offer multiple HDMI inputs (4 or so). How about the digital inputs?
We alo have a Wii console that I run into the TV. Can I run this into the receiver as well?
I'd like to spend $250-300.
