    Guys, I currently have all my movies on a ReadyNas running Plex media server, streaming to my Medialink LG Smart TV, with the TV remote able to control the movies, but I now want to introduce an AV receiver into the setup, but remain the above. Would the LAN connection go into the receiver, pump out audio to the speaker and the picture to the TV? Or the LAN into the TV, then somehow audio into the receiver.

    Is this possible? Confused how it would be setup? Would the receiver need some specific feature? Also, as well as the standard 5.1 speakers for movies, I would like to be able to have floor standing speakers for music in the same room or another. Is this called zones.

    Thanks in advance.
