We are currently in the planning phase of building our first home and I've been in discussions with the builder regarding integrating Apple products in to our home theater. But the words "home theater" are a bit misleading, because it seems like much more than that to me. Through our discussions, he's stated that while he knows how to build a standard home theater system, he doesn't have much experience integrating Apple products. So I figured I would turn to you guys for help. What I currently have: Macbook Pro - with a Apple display and keyboard and mouse for stationary desk work 27" Mac iPad 2 iPhone 4 iPod Touch Granted some of these things may change by the time the house is built (iPad 2 changed to iPad 3, new iPhone, etc) but this is what we currently have. What I want: In our living room, we will have built in speakers connected to a the necessary in the closet. There will also be speakers built into the outside backyard patio. What I would like to do is not have cable, but be able to watch Hulu, Netflix, etc, on my living room TV as well as the bedroom TVs. I would also like to take all of my DVDs, burn them onto a HDD and be able to access those from any room in the house. I would also like to be able to use our iOS devices as remotes as well. Finally I would like to be able to stream music separately to both the living room and the patio. I know I probably didn't explain what I would like well, but I did the best I could. We are starting pretty much from scratch, so I just need to know what equipment I need to buy and the best way to network it all to accomplish what I want. Thank you for your time.
