    Soundbar recommendations

    First off, I know that a sound bar isn't going to completely take the place of a full-fledged surround system but for the movie viewing we do, it will do just fine. That being said, can anyone recommend a good sound bar? Something UNDER $500 preferably. We're looking to get one for upstairs...

    Media Server

    I'm definitely not tech-illiterate and I've hooked up any home theater system I've ever had but I need something cleared up about media servers. I have an external hard drive hooked up to my house's router downstairs. I'd like to put movies on that hard drive and be able to stream them to TV...
