Create your Own Home Theater Using Your PC

Nothing can be more relaxing than curling up on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn and a good movie. The experience can be so much more awesome when we have lots of choices of what to watch and there is no better source of choices for content than the internet, but how do we get the internet to show up on the TV? Well, if you have a new HD TV set & a laptop or other computer with an HDMI out, you can make your own home theater. To get things started, you will need to get your computer connected to your TV so you can see and hear what you want to watch. Next you will want to have a wired internet connection so that you get full speed when streaming movies from sites like Netflix and Hulu. Lastly you will need a way to control your computer from the couch with out any wires getting in the way – for this we recommend a wireless keyboard & mouse combo. Once you’ve got everything connected and in place, you are nearly ready to roll, but the last piece you will need is a Media center style interface that you can use to manage all your music and movies on a bigger screen like your TV – for this, CNET recommends PLEX Media Center. Check out the video below for more info to get you off and running…
