Moving above and beyond the call of pod-duty, our hosts continue on their travels through the universe on the All In IT Radio Space Craft. For once, it pays off to be a couch potato, as the guys look into home entertainment. What do we currently have in our living rooms? How can we improve our media solutions? And what is on the horizon of technology?

To start off they have a look at their own living rooms. Since Kenneth doesn't watch traditional TV he doesn't own one, but rather use his computer to watch movies and other media. He owns a small projector as well, used mostly for playing video games or watching movies when ever friends comes over. Robin packs a bit more of a punch when it comes to this kind of equipment, and has both a stupid but large and flat TV as well as a more than decent soundbar. All to be able to watch his extensive media collection, both digital and on DVD. Somewhere in between we find the eclectic collection of equipment that Henrik uses. A Playstation 3, a Chromecast and a flat but terribly stupid smart TV from Samsung that thinks it is old even though it's just a few years.
