Any recommendations?

Not too expensive.

Hmm. Do you mean like a media sender? I've just bought an Apple TV which lets you send your itunes to your tv - so streams or stores tv shows, music videos, normal itunes music etc from your itunes library.

It's absolutely the dogs cojones (this is a technical term wink). I've just synced everything on my laptop to it and DD is loving choosing videos, songs and movies. It also uses our photos as a screensaver (but a funky lots of different sized pictures flipping and moving over the screen sort of way).

I got it set up in about oooh 3 minutes (and I'm not really a Mac person tbh, but this was just sooo easy and looks amazing.)

The new update out also lets you stream utube directly from it <shudders in anticipation>

There are plenty of other media senders out there - Philips do one which lets you play your music in any room of the house with base stations. It's called the Streamium - take a look on the website.

Can't advise on price as am in Oz. These things are globally available tho. Decide if it's just music you want or video, the ones that play video are more expensive, but well worth it if you want to supervise childrens choices.

If you're not after a way of accessing your digital stuff remotely then I suppose you could just get wireless speakers connected to your laptop/desktop and move them into a different room. Hopefully somebody who's done this will come along as I'm not too sure how far you can move wireless speakers before the quality drops.

HTH

Thanks arfishy.

Your set up sounds good but I am (budget wise) having to think cheaper than buying a new TV more juse recommendations for wireless speakers. E.g. these have good reviews.

Apple TV is just a box but yes, maybe a tad more than the speakers.

They look like a great idea smile. Reviews are really good. I'd go for it.

i had some wireless speakers a while ago cost about £100

didn't work unless you put them right next to the stereo hmm

That's what I'm afraid of.

The reviews are all positive. Why don't you get them and just return them if they don't do what they say on the box? They're supposed to reach for miles, and wireless doesn't need line of sight.
