So the wife and I just got a home built 6 months ago. I wish i had known then what i know now. But it's all good. After months in the attic with a power drill and fishing speaker wire, cat 6 i am some what happy. I still need to run more speakers to the master bedroom and what not, but i need a break. This is what we have so far.
Living room 37" LCD going to upgrade to 60" soon. 5.1 surround sound via Monoprice inwall & inceiling speakers. (still need to do the Center channel)
3 Bedrooms with little 19" LCDs. Going to upgrade those also. Each bedroom has a WDTV Live mounted behind the TV and accesses the 10 TBs of harddrives in the sever/towel closet via DLNA.
In the Server/Towel closet i have 10 TBs of external hard drives loaded with movies and TV shows, music and photos. The laptop is an older dell but serves up all the media via twonky media server w/o a hitch. Below the laptop is my old Pioneer VSX-409d AV receiver, WDTV Live for the living room, Belkin router and modem.
Please excuse the mess of wires. I'm waiting on more low voltage stuff and wallplates from monoprice.
Would like opinions on what to do with the external hard drives. Would like to convert to just one system. (like one box that holds multiple hard drives)
Would also like to see how big of a TV i should get for the living room. Seating is about 10 to 12 feet back. Thanks.
Here's the pictures.
