What kind of setups do you guys have? I run a crappy 42" 1080p LCD, Marantz 5006 receiver, Mac Mini with a 3TB hard drive running Plex, Xbox 360, 12" 100w Polk sub, 7 of those Insignia bookshelves which are actually quite good. I use either a Harmony remote or my phone to control it. I gave up paying $120/month for Directv. Cable/Satellite are rip-offs. I use Netflix and Hulu for most video, OTA for locals, and use zone 2 on the receiver for a Roku box for streaming to the bedroom. Plex controls all music, tv and movies. Everything is networked so I can use anything on the Mac to any device in the house. For Windows users, XBMC is almost the same thing. One really cool thing. Slingboxes have been around for a while, but there's a new one called Vulkano. It's a place shifter and a DVR in one box, but the apps for phones and tablets are free. To people unfamiliar with these things, it lets you watch and control a tv in your house like on a phone, or a computer anywhere in the world. For games, I run MAME for arcades, and Mother Brain for all consoles. Those use an arcade controller or the usual Xbox one.
