    I've been searching this forum for tips on using my NSX-46GT1 for over a year now. Thanks to all of the experts out there helping us newbs get up to speed. Your discussions have been invaluable.

    When I made the switch from my SD 27" Zenith to the GTV, I somehow talked my wife into cutting cable, using an OTA for live tv, and subscribing to Netflix. This has worked well for us, but now I would like expand our media library and learn about the possibilities of streaming content either from within our network or over the internet.

    I am vaguely familiar with softwares such as XBMC, Plex, and ViMu, and I have read plenty of positive reviews on each. I am using to wireless router to connect the GTV to the internet. I am wondering what might be the ideal set up for a streaming system with the possibility of adding DVR capabilities to the system in the future. From what I have read, Plex seems like a safe bet, while expanding my network storage capacity with a +1TB external HDD.

    I'm seeking any advice on what an ideal set up might look like in terms of both hardware and software with my existing GTV.

    Thanks in advance.
