    Samsung PS50A557 - 1080p .. 24p etc..
    Xbox 360 Elite
    Sky HD
    Samsung Bluray Player
    Acer Revo with XBMC Live as media centre
    Yamaha RXV565 A/V Receiver
    4x Q Acoustic 1010i speakers
    1x Q Acoustic 1000ci centre (Still waiting for it to arrive, should be tomorrow)
    1x Q Acoustic 1000si sub (Again, coming monday)

    Logitech Harmony 555 to control it all.

    Once i move into a house with a more suitable wall for a 100"+ project screen, think i'll go that route. Funds willing.. As HD Projectors really seem to have come up a bit.

    I think what people are doing now...since those revo deals which is one of them nettops, is putting the XMBC software onto it and then connecting up their external HDDs to it so it can play all the dodgy content they have downloaded, or having it connected to their network so they can stream media from one pc thru the revo and onto their tv

    I went round at Christmas and started talking about settings to him etc. He said he didn't understand all of thatand just left it on the default. Just shows though when you buy one of those and couple it with a Pioneer Amp and Bose 5.1 speakers you don't need to do too much to it!!!

    It's a piece of software that plays video files, and music and other stuff, but that's what i use it for.

    Do you currently use an xbox360, PS3 or similar to stream video files?
