    My current HTIB system (Samsung HT-X50) is dying and needs to be replaced. Looking for something inexpensive to replace it with. It doesn't HAVE to be another HTIB (as I already have speakers). However, that seems to be what I've found so far that fits my criteria. My main issue is space (I have an above-fireplace nook with room for exactly two "slim" components, one of which is my DirecTV unit - not ideal but it's what I've got). My budget is not huge, and anything really high quality would be a waste anyway because of the HORRIBLE acoustics of the room (it's a "great room" with high ceilings, open to most of downstairs).

    What I need:

    Slim form factor (less than 3 in. high)
    Blu-ray built-in (no room for a separate device)
    Must do Netflix (Hulu and others a plus)
    No proprietary speaker connections (room is pre-wired, sorry Sony and Samsung HTIB!)
    At least one digital input (for my DirecTV HD-DVR)
    Reasonable price

    What I'd like:

    Another digital input (for HTPC)
    iPod/iPhone docking capability
    More inputs!

    What I don't need:

    Wireless speaker capability
    More than 5.1 channels

    What I have:

    10% off Best Buy coupon (3/16-3/21)

    The current frontrunner is the LG LHB535. Any other recommendations are welcome.
