(NB: hope this is the right forum areas, seemd a little Home Cinema-ish, sooo...)
Am on leave for a few weeks and thinking of getting a relatively flush-mounted, reasonably-sized wallmount TV for the bedroom.
The Samsung UE48H6400 seems the flavour of the moment, so this is currently top of my list.
Talked to a local installer yesterday and we ran through several options for connectivity and came up with the following:
Primary option: HDMI source splitter from SkyHD box in downstairs living room, fed to the storage area in my upstairs office (which is next to the main bedroom). That source is then joined by a new local 3D BluRay player (located in the office storage) and the output to that player then rejoines the Sky feed, through another connector box, which feeds both souces through a single switchable HDMI (plumbed through ceilings and fed though walls) into the Samsung. Also: the wallmount location already has digital terrestrial HD already plumberd in.
So, first off: thoughts on that setup? The general idea is to try and get some good quality HD content to feed it, without forking out for Skymultiroom (the current concept being based on remotely controlling the single SkyHD box when in the bedroom).
Side thoughts: alternate TVs at that size, best 3D BluRay combo?
Also: am wondering about whether to get a soundbar of somekind to supplement the TV or - one of the installers last minute suggestion, running a separate set of zoned wallmount (or even ceilingmount?) speakers from my existing Yamaha DSP-AX863SE which is also downstairs. My thoughts around this are to do with costs, cabling, whether a soundbar would be too physically obtrusive or would rying to run speakers from the Yam be a bit too bonkers.
Anyhoo, consider this a discussion point. Am open to suggestions on any or all devices and or general feedback.
Trying to budget for this realtively modestly and also don't want to tear the house up!
Any thoughts appreciated.
