    Hello Agoraheads,
    I am moving in the next year or so. My new home will be just that, brand new (either a modular or manufactured home.) I wish to have every room completely fitted out with Sony HD monitors, feeds from XM satellite radio as well as audio from a central source, whether it be from a CD changer, etc... I want the equipment to blend seamlessly with the housing, which means either running a bunch of wires behind walls, or going with some sort of "Whole House A/V Distribution System". I did read the Feb/March issue of "Sound & Vision" and found some of the whole house control systems quite appealing. The whole home will also be fitted for high speed Internet access, whether it be cable or DSL. I mention this as it may conflict with the wireless "whole house" option. Every room will not have to be Net capable, but I really want to be able to move from room to room and experience a seamless transition of audio and video imaging. There will be an "A/V Master Room", with a Bravia monitor, and loads of ES goodies, dual subwoofers, etc... Cost is not the main priority. If anyone has had to make similar decisions, I would really enjoy hearing your thoughts. Thanks, Aiden

    Allow me to add a couple of items.

    Consider using sattelite for your TV AND INTERNET.

    DirecTv is the service we use.  Last November they dropped their own music and picked up XM radio.  They have a service called Direct Way internet connection.  We use DirecTV HD service and are a Premier service member (all channels) which includes the Tivo service no charge.

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask...  jim

    Doesn't satellite internet suck for uploading? Consider not being able to send large files to other people. Pictures especialy, we send all of our pictures out through email to have them developed. If we had satelite internet it would take hours to upload them through the phone line.
