Went shopping for a Smart TV in John Lewis today. The tech guys there seemed quite knowledgable and basically talked me out of buying a TV, but I want to confirm if what they said was true. The big plus for me with Smart TV is that it will be my media player, i.e. photos, music and videos. But all that stuff is on my Netgear Stora NAS, connected by Ethernet to my router. Ideally I'd want to link the TV by Ethernet to the router too, rather than wireless. But JL were saying that the Smart TVs (latest Samsungs, etc) could only stream off a PC and not a NAS because the systems need some software running on a PC to stream and the NAS can't do that. Whilst I have a PC that tends to stay on, because that's wireless attached to the router, I'd prefer not to rely on that for the whole solution. My other concern is that even if a NAS worked, that's fine for photos but what about audio? I won't use the audio on the TV, have an amp & surround sound. What would make the TV chose the Amp as the sound output? Finally, the JL guys suggested that perhaps rather than a Smart TV, I go for a PS3 or Western Digital device. Is that the better option, and if so which of those would you recommend? Cheers!
