If I play my cards right with the wife I can have a HTPC, home network, and a new laptop. Currently I just have a single PC. So I need some help. I want to move the PC (specs below) to the basement and somehow send audio and video to my television. MP3 files photos and video files. This gets the PC and desk and crap all moved to the basement, where we never go. So we need a laptop to use around the rest of the house. Score for me. So I don't have a router, I don't have the laptop (will buy), I know nothing of the software need to make things happen. What I do have is a Panasonic 50" 600U plasma, mounted on the wall in the living room (PC to go below this in the basement). The PC is the following 500g (2x 250) WD sata drive AMD 4000+ Athlon 64 Sound blaster Audigy 2 XFX Geforce 6800gs (256 DDR3) Antec 450watt power supply 1 gig ram What do I need to make it all happen, router, some type of remote for the PC, new video card? The laptop (yeah), some cables. Any help would be great. I'm not looking for a High Def machine here, I'll upgrade later as required. I want to use as much existing stuff as possible to keep the wife inside.
