I want to set up some sort of karaoke system for the wife and I'd like to have something nice. We don't have/want a console gaming system to run it. I've seen some cheapy machines online... also, I saw someone on craigslist selling a harddrive full of CD+G music (i'm sure it's not legit) and i'm a bit confused on how that works. From what I understand, you can output the karaoke software from your laptop/htpc to the TV. Do you just hook up the microphone to your home entertainment receiver? Any suggestions on how to go about this? she's a great singer so I'd like to have something nice for her.
