Hey guys, first of all, i apologize for making a new thread for such simple request. I also hope this is the right subforum. I'm short on time since construction is already well underway and I've spent last 2 days reading various articles and threads and I still don't have a clue
We are talking about single story apartment with 3 bedrooms. I'll need help with pretty much everything, that means, what wires to run, which devies to buy, how to hook them up, which software to install etc. I don't own any piece of equipment so we can be flexible as much as possible.
This is what I've had in mind:-Storage area:
Modem, router, and server would host content like music, pictures, 720p, 1080p, etc-Bedrooms:
TV with access to said content and if possible internet on TV and streaming of stuff like youtube etc.-Living room:
TV, 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound which I'd like to use for music streaming too separate from TV. For example TV is on mute or using built-in speakers while i stream music on the surround system. I'll probably have a gaming console too which needs to be taken in to consideration.
I'd like everything to be integrated with eachother as much as possible, fewer remotes and hoops to jump through when switching between different stuff the better. I'm a big fan of android if it makes any difference regarding control of devices. If there are some must have features that I'm missing please fill me in. I know it isn't easy advising on whole build from scratch but I'd really appreciate it.
P.S. Is there any "list" on features that are possible with current equipment? I'd hate to build the thing and realize i overlooked some feature that i really liked that isn't expensive or complicated to implement.
