I am new to your site but have browsed thru it and would appreciate any help on designing a mid size audio video system for whole house.

Here is what I would like to accomplish.

All audio video equipment in one location for entire house.
hd video via cat5 and baluns to each tv location. Approximatly 10 to 12 locations. 1 pair inwall speakers in each of these rooms that I can get the music from any component at headend but also I need to have that pair of speakers also provide the audio for whatever video source I am cuurently using in that room. Also need the ability to watch/listen to different sources in each room.
Also what seems to maybe be an issue is that while I want the inwall speakers to be used for whatever video channel/source I am watching I would also like to have the availability to get the sound ou of the tv speakers if I would want to.

Would like to possibly have the ability to use iphone/ipad for control at later date but probably just use harmony 1100 for control for now.

Right now I am considering the following equipment:

Niles zr6 receiver
niles vs-6 video switcher
cat 5 to waalplate video baluns
usuall source components dvd, blue-ray, cd player , 1 0r 2 hd cable boxes
and would like some sort of steaming video

I am not stuck on Niles but seemed to be in price range and do what I need except it appears it may have been discontinued but is still on their website. I would appreciate any help, tips advice you may have .
