Networking Home Theater components

I need to connect my receiver, bluray player, media player to my network. I already have a router that has three ports used up for my PC's and one port in empty. How would I connect these components to my router? I would prefer to stay wired.
Would I need to buy another router and connect the components to it and then connect the new router to my existing router with the one port available?

You just need a switch of at least 5 ports. Connect your A?V stuff to that then one line to your router.

Here's a visual representation. The bottom corners of this image are separate rooms, and each have a switch to accommodate the devices. The modem, router, DLink switch, and unRAID server (v1) are in the master closet where the in-house cat5 terminates.
