I have been doing lots of reading, searching and talking to ppl trying to school myself on my needs and still have questions.
These are my goals:
1:Have a nice HDTV 37-42 (looking at the Westinghouse LVM37W3)
2:Nice surround sound system for DVD movies
3:Able to listen to my music on the same sound system
4:Be able to store/listen/view all my music, pics, and some video/DVD's on a Mac Mini
5: A DVR via the mini eyetv or miglia
6:Play a PS3 or XBOX360 if I get one
7:Not be outdated in 6months
8: Spend around $2-2,500
These are my questions:
If I do the miglia setup do go from the coax from the wall to Comcast box to the miglia box to mac mini box to the TV?
What cables to use. Do I use DVI from the mini to the TV. What about audio? Should I just use HDMI? I realize I will probably need to a amplifier for the DVI signal to travel that far, would I need one for HDMI?
Could I use the DVD player from the mac to play all my DVD's and see the video's at full 1080p? (as soon as I get the mini Apple will come out with a blue ray optical drive, just my luck)
Am I going to have 30 remotes??
Thanks for any help/wisdom
