Switch between Receivers

I am looking for a 5.1 system amp selector switch. I have a 5.1 home theater system and want the capability to connect the home theater DVD as well as a separate receiver to the same speaker system. Both systems will not be operating at the same time so I shouldn't have a problem there, but I would like the ability to switch between the two receivers (amps) for the one speaker system.

What do you recommend? Who may carry such a switch?

One unit is a Blu-ray Home Theater DVD player Samsung HT-BD2E with five Samsung speakers and a sub-woofer. The second receiver is an Onkyo TX-SV343. Both units have output for 2 front, 2 surround, one center, and one sub-woofer speaker.
