I know that in the early stages of my relationship with my then girlfriend now wife, she banned me eating a certain crisp flavour as it made ‘it’ taste funny.

I can eat what I want these days.

What crisps were they, out of interest?

Surprisingly hard to find a photo of them, but they were Walkers Sensations Honey Roasted Ham. They were a seasonal thing.

Just been out to see Thor, then nipped next door for a three course meal, then back into the cinema to watch Jigsaw!

Good night. :)

New TV get! It's a 4k LG model with a load of apps built in which may actually replace basically everything that I have plugged into my current TV. If the sound is decent, then it looks like I'm going back to one remote.

Picking it up tonight. Looking forward to it!

Oh, and a new Dyson. Meh.

You need £180 hdmi cables to get decent sound.

A TV - especially a modern one that's an inch thick - is never going to be able to produce anything even nearly as good as a set of external speakers can.

True. The wife wants to wall mount eventually though, so I'm hoping to minimise cabling in the long run

If you get a surround sound amp you'll only have two cables between the TV and the cabinet (one from the amp, and power). Assuming you don't have a network cable.

Otherwise you'll need one cable for each source going to the TV.

Don't worry about that, simply hurl yourself down the rabbit hole that is cable organisation on Pinterest

Just to get it out of my head and into text I currently have:

A cheapo Tesco 40inch LED TV
A Youview Box, Fire TV and Chromecast plugged into a switched HDMI audio extractor. The audio goes via an optical cable to a Maxell soundbase underneath the TV. This is controlled with a Logitech Harmony 600.

Now as the new TV can do Plex, Netflix, Amazon Video and Google Play Movies, I'm not sure I need the Fire TV. The new TV has Freeview HD so I don't need the Youview box. I'll need to keep the Chromecast for BT Sport though. I might not need the logitech remote either, if the TV can controll the soundbase through ARC.

Pfff... I'm more of a "rat's nest" sort of guy. Not at work though. At work I'm meticulous.

That doesn't make any sense, does it? The soundbase isn't just a speaker. It can do HDMI switching, but it never really worked very well. Hence the Optical cable.

Note: I've never used ARC as my current TV can't do it. I realise now that it requires an HDMI cable.
