Questions about Home Entertainment Center setup
Posted on 2010-09-23
I'm getting ready to buy a new home entertainment system and had some questions about setting up the system and how it will all work.
I am going to by a 60" LED Samsung TV that I am gonig to wall mount. I have an old Toshiba DVD player, but I thought I might get a blue ray player. I also want to get a logitech universal remote. Finally, I have an old NAD reciever, that is actually pretty good. it is a great reciever that I have no intention of throwing away, so I want to continue to use that.
Now, I have my computer system with a combo wireless/wired linksys router and I have itunes with a library of music and I have Netflix.
How is the performance of the Netflix on the TV work? Is it fast? Is it choppy? I have a DSL connection. Should it be wired or is the wireless connection sufficient?
Will the universal remote work wth my old NAD reciever?
Honestly, I'm terrible with electronic setup. Would it be worth having the Best Buy geek squad configure the entertainment system? Would there be another option to have someone configure my system instead of Best Buy that might do a better job?
Is the blue ray backwards compatible with my old DVDs (I assume it is). Will it also play my CDs? Not sure abut that one.
I've heard that I can also get an application on my iPhone that can control my entertainment system to change music. If so, does anyone know what application that is?
Any suggestions or recommendations would be appreciated.
