Hi all so my parents are building a new house and I am setting up the network. I dont have much experience with networks but id like to learn. Basically what I want is to have a NAS which every computer backs up to regularly. There will be 3 laptops and one desktop. All windows 8. This part is pretty easy to do. The hard bit which I would like is to have speakers installed in various rooms and outdoors, and also the tvs connected to this nas and be able to access music and movies by controlling it with a remote or from phone/laptops. So from a phone id like to be able to choose a song to play in specific rooms and movies to play on a tv. But it needs to be able to play different songs/movies in different areas. So for example I can play a song in the workshop while mum plays a song in the lounge room and dad watches a movie in the tv. The rooms with tv will share speakers with the music system. Space is not an issue there is a couple of large empty spaces I can use for the hardware due to the layout of the house. Cost is not a huge issue but we obviously dont want to spend more than necessary. The wiring will be done by an electrician but i would like to plan the points and install the hardware. So what is the best way to do this? One thing I was thinking was to run ethernet back to the void form every room in the house and run everything across that. Can a computer output audio/video straight to ethernet? Then be converted to hdmi at the other end. Is there software which can be controlled by a phone which will allow this? Thanks heaps for any help and hopefully i have explained it well enough.
