Sorry I'm a newbie, but what is an "HDMI distribution", and how do I know if I will need one when I decide to set up my living room theater?

I think that you are asking about a hdmi switch. You only need that if you do not have enough hdmi inputs on your avr.

I did my room about 5 years ago, so it's actually due some changes: I've already welded up a steel frame to make a 'floating' shelf for the projector so that I can swap the positions of the sideboard and bookcase since I don't like how the sideboard makes the main sofa seem cramped. Afterwards I'm going to extend the pelmet forwards so it can contain some drop down black velvet curtains to make a slicker version of the 'tent' that I tried as an experiment. This 'tent' increased my ANSI contrast by a factor of 3 so is worth it from a PQ standpoint, but just became too much hassle to set up each time I want to watch a film. I will however make an exception for the showing of Skyfall which is due soon. cool.gif

I just got the PMC Wafer side surround speakers which were a used bargain: I now have pretty much the same speaker set up that the BBC use in the suite where they master the Doctor Who and Torchwood series apparently, so I'm in good company. I imagine most of my gear might be unfamiliar to viewers from the USA, but has been carefully chosen over the years (mostly bought secondhand, like the Arcam AV9 for £800 instead of £3,500 when new).

Older photo since main speaker now updated from the smaller ones shown here:



More up to date photo with the screen raised for day to day TV viewing:



View looking back from the screen with the 'new' PMC Wafer1s above the doors each side. cool.gif Also my white JVC X35 projector.



Equipment cabinet of Arcam processor/power amps, with the Oppo BDP-93 out of sight inside the right hand compartment (it's a great player, but pug ugly IMHO eek.gif ) That's my trusty Lumagen Mini3D on the top of the cabinet with the remote on top.



This is the temporary 'tent' that I hope to try to make something that will do a similar job,but be easier to set up for projector viewing:

I wanted to rearrange my room and as my X35 was on top of a bookcase that I wanted to relocate, I had to find a way to mount it. I was told that a 'floating' shelf strong enough for a projector wasn't possible, but I just saw that as a challenge. tongue.gif Anyway, it's been up for 2 weeks or so now and is totally bombproof (I can do 'pull ups' on the bare frame). I need to take some updated shots with the (2.35:1) screen down, but these should do for now:

This is the bare welded frame I made:



I fixed it to the wall having cut the plasterboard (drywall) back so it could sit tight against the block work:



There is enough space in front of the X35 to fit my Isco II on it's stand for 2.35:1 films, hence the overhang of the shelf.



Distance shots both ways of the room, with the screen hidden in the pelmet above the window:

This was the setup at my last place. The screen is AT white spandex over grey on a 1x3 frame. Epson 8500UB, Pioneer 1021, EMPTek 5.1 setup with extra M&K MX-70B sub. 55" Samsung LED below. Architecture is a little weird; the screen wall is about 30 degrees off vertical, that's why things look funny.
The screen is definitely a little wide, but I don't have a table saw or anything to get nice edges with, so I kept the stock lengths on everything which just happened to fit. You might notice the weird angles too, it's not an optical illusion. I think we measured it to be 19 degrees from perpendicular to the floor. It's okay though because once you recline it's pretty easy viewing.
Yes, that's an AC unit directly above the couch. Old michigan houses often don't have central AC. The new house will.
Projector doesn't look too great with theater mode and lots of ambient light. This was also before we got things leveled out and zoomed in correctly.

Awesome thread. Totally worth resurrecting and putting on a strict regimen of progressive overload training and all meat diet.

Just you boys wait until I get home, set up my camera, take pics, load them onto my computer, figure out how to upload them onto this website! Just bought a receiver and second sub yesterday as well as 2 more speakers for a x.x.4 setup as well as two nicer surrounds to replace my old ones. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that my living room will be the one everyone talks about with sentences that start with,

'Member that one guy's living room turnt media room? 'MEMBER?!?

If you get that carried away, there's a forum for "Dedicated Theater Design & Construction."
For real inspiration, check the "Home Theater of the Month" threads:
http://www.avsforum.com/tag/home-theater-of-the-month/
You will need to upload your pictures to a site such as PhotoBucket or TinyPic, get a "code for message boards," and paste that link in your post. Use the "preview post" in the "go advanced" editor to make sure the images are okay.
It's not hard, it's just tedious.
Enjoy your new setup.

Not much but works well for us. Samsung 49" KS8500 SUHD Quantum Dot, Anthem MRX-520, M&K K5's & K7s (7.1). The front speakers are mounted near the top of the windows (you can see a couple just underneath "Merry Christmas".



And, for those interested, the maroon signs cover mini LED lighting systems. Behind the "Merry Christmas" for instance are 5 American DJ RGBW Microwash and an Inno Pocket Spot moving light for backlight on the village atop the display. In total I've now 33 of the little RGBW washes & spots and 4 movers. All controlled via DMX by ChamSys MagicQ running on an old Mac Mini.
