I'd like to set up a home entertainment system where I can watch stuff and listen to stuff, and I'd like to upgrade from watching everything on my 13 inch laptop screen with crappy computer speakers. I haven't had a TV since, oh, sometime around 2001. I have no idea what I need or what all the new doodads and gadgets and various streaming options are. Please explain this to me like I'm your mom, but internet savvy. [more inside]
I'm working on a fun project which involves multiple bicycles and multiple boomboxes. I am trying to figure out how to synchronize music playback on all of these boomboxes, using phones. I assume this would be streaming from the internet (3G/4G/whatever), but are there streaming services that ensure totally synchronized playback across multiple devices? [more inside]

So i have a bit of a weird one here. I'm aware that there are speakers that can pair to eachother so you can use two as a stereo sound pair, or just two at once(E.G. jambox mini, beats pill XL). What i'm looking for though, is sort of the reverse. [more inside]
My Comcast feed and the MLB.com audio feed are about 30 seconds off. Unfortunately, the Comcast video is running 30 seconds behind the MLB.com audio. When I had DirecTV the audio was always about 1 minute behind, so it was easy to simply pause the TV until the audio caught up, then watch it off the DVR on a 1 minute delay synched to the audio feed. How can I achieve the same result pausing the audio stream via MLB.com? Linux solutions are best as my laptop runs the latest Ubuntu LTS. Android ok too if there is an app that does this that I haven't found. Please help, I just can't listen to Joe Buck and Tim McCarver for another game, let alone the entire World Series.
Is there a live streaming audio player for Windows that will add a predefined delay? I actually need a delay of 5-10 minutes and preferably the ability to vary the delay as I listen. I saw a delay option in VideoLAN but the stream never starts; I guess the delay is much too long for it to deal with.

I'm looking for a streaming radio station playing the latest in Arab pop music. There used to be a fantastic one called Beirut Mood Radio a number of months ago. Sadly, it disappeared without a trace. Something in the vein of Hifa Wehbe would be fantastic. A shoutcast (or icecast) stream would be preferable. Windows Media doesn't work for me. Many thanks.

MP3 Filter: I've got a large MP3 collection at home that I would like to be able to access from my office.

I'm looking for streaming Japanese-language talk or news radio. Specifically, I'm looking for a live feed rather than short clips (the latter of which I seem to find tons of), and preferably low-bandwidth audio-only rather than video. I don't read Japanese, so searching is difficult.
There used to be a pretty good streaming audio client, possibly powered by Real.Com but I'm not sure if that's right or not, that had a large selection of streams, stuff like "Funky Holiday" and "The Piano" -- does this ring a bell with anyone? I'm striking out on Google. I thought it was "RadioOne" but that's not it. Any suggestions?
