Hello... Not sure where to start on this one but you lot seem like a nice bunch... I'm looking for some advice to buy something for my living room (not sure what's its called to be honest!).

I have 5.1 speakers (5 plus woofer) and I need something to run the tv through (LCD 2 years old) I watch lots of movies from laptop so want the sound from laptop (stereo out) to come out of 5.1 speakers not just the tv (usually use hdmi directly into tv) also want to be able to plug in iPhone to play music through the 5.1 speakers. I never use DVD or blue ray so no requirement there. If I was able to record Tv too that would be a bonus but not essential...

Would be great if someone could tell me a) what this piece of kit is called b) if it can be purchased from less than £200???

Many thanks! Mike

What you need is a media player. Copy movies to a hard drive, plug a HDMI cable in,

Do you have an optical in for your receiver? If yes, what you are looking for 5.1 audio is this:-

Easy and within your budget for your 5.1 output requirement!!

Why the random upside down text?
