I have a bunch of stuff about the 'ultimate pre-wire' in the site in my sig. It's way over the top, but gives you an idea about what to contemplate.

I have access to pull any cabling required from my Windows 7 PC to the HT closet. What do I need to buy to stream audio and video to my HT that is DLNA compliant? (I guess that is right?)
I am interested in internet radio, Pandora, locally stored music/movies etc. I'd also like to see the menus, album covers etc from my LCD display. I will be using a Harmony One remote.
I also use itunes but can migrate my music to WM12 too but itunes album covers on my LCD would be nice if I can do both. (plus I like being able to use my iphone remotely when using zone 2 on the deck outside)
Where is a 'dummy' thread to get me started????

Do you want to distribute video throughout your home? Sounds like the answer is no.
I'd spend time in the HTPC subforum, since that seems to be the most difficult component to integrate into the system, at least to me. Your AVR will probably suffice to switch the video/audio sources, but I'm not too familiar with the 2310.
Patience is the key.

This subforum is mostly for distributing AV to multiple locations.
I guess locating the hardware remotely could be considered distribution. To 1 location.
I bet your setup will be similar to most dedicated home theaters, with multiple sources hidden in a closet. Maybe that would be a good place to search and read, in the Home Theater subforum ?
