Just purchased a new house and my kids a re trashing the lounge with new furniture already (kids + TV + food = angry Mum & Dad). We have a massive space available in a separate living area to be dedicated to the kids.
We have in lounge 1: x SD CRT TV, PS3 (mainly used as media centre), Sky, VCR (rarely used), DVD home theatre - currently utilise a AV switch to flick between VCR/ Sky/ DVD and PS3 has its own AV channel (or something simialr to this setup).
And living area/ lounge 2: 1 x SD CRT TV, PS2 (and probably the VCR from lounge 1)
We also have a portable HDD AV jukebox, but I guess that is irrelevant!
The plan is to get a AV sender to broadcast the media content from the PS3 (kids TV/ movies)/ Sky (kids TV/ movies). I like the look of the Coocoon 5.4 GHz jobby available at DSE.
The issue: how can we also watch something in the lounge (possibly on the PS3 or Sky) at the same time???
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
No - I don't want to get into a discussion around parents using TV to babysit the kids. We give them a small window after dinner to chill out before books & bed - however food always seems to come into the equation too. So we plan to have one of us monitor the little monkeys in lounge2 while the other can catch up on news/ recorded TV...
