First, sorry for posting an "on topic" question on the "off topic" area of the site, but my question seems to be too general to fit in any of the specific AV forums. I'm more than happy to repost to an on topic part of the site if some one can point me in the right direction! I'm looking for an arrangement that will give me HD, Blueray, will allow easy recording of TV to hard disk, and an auxiliary input on the amp that will allow me to stream music wirelessly from my computer (currently through a Squeezebox). All of my system, apart from the television, will need replacing. There's a really confusing range of options available these days, and I hardly know where to start. I'm the type of guy who does a little research, buys his system and then doesn't think about it for a few years and I'd be very grateful for the advice of people who take a more active and ongoing interest. Currently I have an HD ready Sony 40 inch LCD - I'm not sure the model but it's around three years old and I doubt I'd be looking to upgrade that just yet. I have Sky +, but it's an oldish box with a maximum of 20 hours storable on the hard disc, and with no HD. I'm considering moving to the Sky HD box, which hopefully would give me better storage and HD capability, but an alternative would be to scrap Sky altogether and move to a freeview HD system. I would want a system where it was as easy to record as the Sky + - I gather that other systems will do this now. This would presumably save money but there would presumably also be downsides. At present I have the movies and sports package from Sky, but I'm not making extensive use of the movies in particular so it might not be a huge problem to give them up. For amplification I have a Denon "home cinema in a box". It's about five years old and the DVD player no longer works. When it gave up the ghost (probably around a year ago) I bought a very cheap DVD player as a stopgap until I worked out what I wanted to do next, but I've been paralysed by the range of choices ever since. Other complicating factors are that while the easiest solution to replacing the home-cinema-in-a-box might be to buy another one I've been put off by the fact that I'm needing to replace the whole Denon system when only one component is gone - would I be better of with separates? Another factor is that I really like the look of the speakers that came with the Denon and these are already wired into the room - none of the other recommended systems seem to have such an aesthetically pleasing speakers, and I might be tempted to hold on to the Denons and just replace the DVD player/amplifier if that was considered a practicable option. As for cost, I'm not hard up but I'm not the type to pay a heavy premium for stuff that's super-refined or to be an early adopter. My TV cost around £1600, the Denon £500 so that may be a reasonable guide to the area of the market I'd be looking at. I would have hoped I could solve these problems for what, £600 - £800? I'd be very grateful for any thoughts or advice.
