technologySo technology is here to make our lives easier, right? We all know that.  Then why is it always so complicated to get things to work the way they’re supposed to?  I mean trying to simply set up a home theatre recently with a friend was a total nightmare, what with all the various connections, devices, and cool new tech gadgets.  Fortunately I found some technology that DID make things easier… Thank you YouTube!

It’s amazing the help you can find on YouTube these days, isn’t it?  Well, with a few minutes of searching I was able to convince my friend it was time to upgrade to a new wireless home entertainment system.  It was surprisingly affordable, and was she ever thrilled with the outcome!  Movie night at her place!

Here’s the information I found that was so helpful. Hopefully it’ll be helpful to you, or someone you know, just like it was for us.

Today I’m going to show you how to go wireless with your Blu-ray disc home theater system. And whey would you want to do that? Well, for many reasons. But for starters, just look at this ugly, horrible cable mess. Say goodbye.

Wireless internet connectivity allows you to conveniently access and stream online entertainment directly form the internet. Movies, videos, TV episodes, music and more from a huge list of providers like Netflix, Youtube, and Pandora just to name a few. All of this without needing a dedicated ethernet connection. Plus, you can easily set up your home theater system wherever you’d like. You don’t need to near an ethernet port to be able to connect to the internet.

First thing’s first… You’ll need an existing home network with a router. If your router is not already wireless, you’ll need to upgrade to a wireless router. The wireless router is hardwired to your broadband connection then the router gives off wireless signal, which connects with your your wifi-enabled devices.

Next, you’ll want to ensure your products have built-in wifi, like this HDTV and Blu-ray disc home theater system. If they don’t have built-in Wi-Fi, but are Wi-Fi enabled, that’s fine, too. Just make sure you buy the appropriate Wi-Fi adapter.

Okay, now that you’ve got a wireless connection and Wi-Fi enabled products, you can connect your products to Wi-Fi network wherever your products are set up. Depending on your router and network configuration, you may need to take additional steps to finish your Wi-Fi set up. Typically, your onscreen display will help guide you through the set-up process.

Place your HDTV and Blu-ray home theater system wherever you like. Next, set up the speakers. This system has wireless rear speakers so you won’t have to run wires from the front of the room to the back. This unit sends a signal to the transmitter box in the back of the room. It needs to be plugged into an outlet so it can send a wireless signal to the rear speakers.

Now place your speakers and sub-woofer around the room, two speakers on either side of the TV and two in the back of the room angled toward where you’ll sit and one speaker centered slightly below your HDTV. The sub-woofer can be on the left or the right of the TV.

Now power up your system and start streaming online entertainment directly from the internet. With millions of choices, you’ll never run out of things to watch.
