I have a pretty similar setup, Plex is great!

I have a mini running Plex connected to my Sony 32" TV. All the media is stored on a Drobo (I lost all my movies / TV shows when a HD died so I don't want to risk it anymore).

I then also have my Sky HD going into my TV.

The audio goed through a 5.1 surround sound controller but that only has one audio input so I need a switch for the Sky and mini. I will eventually get a surround sound system with dual inputs but they are very expensive for a good one.

I will post pictures later.
