Hi all. I have been a member for a while and am usually able to find everything I need through search but I am officially stumped with too many options now. My new house is prewired for 5.1 surround in-wall in family room as well as 2 more wires running out to the patio. I am not looking to spend a small fortune on equipment. I don't spend enough time listening to music or watching TV but the house is wired and I want to put something in there that sounds decent. Living room has plasma TV. I want to be able to watch Bluray in there. I know I need a receiver with 5.1 capabilities and a second channel so that a different signal can go outside for music while TV is going inside as well as combining the two if I can. As in I could be watching a game inside but if I had to go on the patio to check the grill, I could still hear the game from outside. I'm sure this setup has been done a thousand times over. What's out there now for me? There are too many speakers on ebay to even know what is good and the same goes for receivers. What brands do I stay away from? What are must haves? Any help is appreciated. I guess I would be very happy to get away with spending around $500 but I could see going closer to $1000 for stuff that will last.
