I have an extensive collection (over 1000) dvd’s (as well as the usual stack of cds and digital photos) that I want to be able to store on an external hard drive that links to my laptop and tv. To do this I need to a) by a new laptop, b) buy a new wireless router, c) buy some sort of media streamer, d) learn what software is best and e) understand what level of storage/ compression (?) etc i need. Ultimately I’d lke to be able to sit in my living room with access to all my music, photos and movies.
My only experience is burning the odd cd through windows media.
