If you want Pandora, Roku has it. A Roku might be a nice addition to your setup because it has Netflix, Amazon video rental and free Amazon videos (for Prime members), and all kinds of other network streaming options, and you can get one that has 1080p capability for $80. Neat little streaming devices.

i get all of that with my ps3, and bought 1 of these for $30 from a dell promo http://www.amazon.com/Netgear-PUSH2TV-PTV2000-Adapter-Wireless/dp/B004SBEVSY, so more blu-rays instead of the roku lol

You are set then. smile.gif

I wonder if the Netgear device would let you stream Pandora from their website since the device has web browsing?

it basically mimics anything you do on your computer, so if your watching movies on your computer it's on your tv, and same with pandora. its a pretty cool little device

Got everything hooked up, and mounted, no just tweaking the receiver to get the best sound out of the speakers, here's some pictures, back surrounds 7.1,fronts , , I haven't found a final placement for the sub yet, just waiting to place furniture and that will give me a better idea of where to put the sub,

For best sub placement, do the sub crawl: http://www.audioholics.com/tweaks/speaker-setup-guidelines/crawling-for-bass-subwoofer-placement
