Two-speaker TV setup for non-audiophiles?

We have an LG LCD tv with some not-very-good speakers, and they are starting to sound "blown". Is there some kind of amp-speaker set designed for people who just want decent audio, rather than surround sound? [more inside]

Can I hook up my speaker system to both computer and stereo?

I just bought a "Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX Certified Computer Speaker System," thanks to recs from another post on mefi. I'm wondering if I can buy a cable that will connect the system to my computer AND my stereo--some kind of splitter? I'm pretty clueless about this stuff, so the more detail the better. Thanks.

Best inexpensive receiver to use with computer

I have a pair of stereo speakers that I want to use with my computer. My old receiver broke, so unless there's some way to hook stereo speakers directly up to a computer, I'll need a new one. I want to find an inexpensive receiver that can turn on automatically when it gets a signal. I don't want to have to walk over and turn it on every time I want to play an MP3 or have to remember to turn it off. (I think my old one broke because I'd just leave it on all the time.) The only other thing I'd use it for is playing DVD audio, so it should work with that as well. What's the best receiver to use for computer audio that will detect a signal and turn on by itself? Or should I just lose the stereo speakers and get a pair of computer speakers?

Shotgun Speakers 101

A friend of mine has told me about something called shotgun speakers and I'm fascinated. Basically, as her described them, they broadcast a sound in a very narrow beam so that only the target the speakers are pointed at will hear the sound. Is that true? How do they work? And more important, where can I get my hands on some? I'm a reality TV producer and I can think of dozens of applications. At least three of which may be ethical.
