Streaming/media storage help please.
Im not very confident when it comes to networking, streaming, storage etc so was wondering if you could give some advice please.
At the moment I have all my music, films and photos stored on my laptop and view them on my samsung smart tv but I dont really like this set up as I always need to have the laptop on to access the media so I would like to get up to date with things and get a good media storage/streamer or whatever its called but dont know where to start.I cant wait to get rid of all my dvd cases and cd cases.
My ideal set up would be to have a nice looking sleek box where all my media is and I can easily play it all through my TV seamlessly and have my music play through my surround sound with no loss of video or sound quality but I dont really know what Im looking as theres so many different types out there.
Also I would like to be able to stream my films to the upstairs TV but the wirless signal is rubbish from the router to upstairs, I know this because when I take my laptop upstairs I usually lose the signal but I do have a really fast internet speed of 37mb.
So theres my dilemma people thanks alot for listening and would really appreciate your suggestions. Links to products would be great too.
