Film and music home networking help please.
Im after suggestions, advice and simple explanations from you lovely people on what I need for this -
Im after something that I can store all my films and music on and then play them on my tv without having my laptop on and then also be able to play them on the upstairs tv too.Is there something with hard drives to store all my stuff on that I can access through the TV (I have a samsung smart tv) ? Also am I right in thinking that for upstairs I could get a network blu ray player, 2 homeplugs and access my stuff like that ? Or is there a better more advanced way ?
At the moment all my films and music are on my laptop and I have to keep that on and play the files wirelessly from laptop onto the tv, which is not ideal as I have loads of problems with freezing, cut outs etc, plus Id like a more up to date sophisticated way of doing it.Sometimes I use the PS3 to stream from laptop but thats rubbish too.
If anyone can explain in simplish terms (coz I struggle to get my head around all this networking lark) or even provide links to what I need I would be very very grateful.
Btw my budget is rpobably around £400
Thanks a lot in advance everyone
