Ironically, getting this project "through committee" added to the cost since having a plasma and mounting it in a corner just about tripled the cost of the tv I started out with. This room has sightlines from just about every room so there was no way I was going to get a 70" silver beast in there (fingers were crossed, though).
There is enough room behind the flat panel to have put in an RPTV.

That said we managed to get 7.1 setup in our main room without floor standing speakers or wall-mounted surrounds. Check out the second pic for the crazy ceiling angles - but it works

steve, is it the camera or the screen? the sahara pic looks like there is a very strong red push?

I had the same pic of sahara taken a while back also, this is the only reason why I noticed it.

Here is my feeble attempt at HT, this is in a spare room of the hallway. I would appreciate any comments on color treatment for the walls.

RnB180,
It must be the camera, because it looks very nice in person. I should be checking the setup though as I have made some changes recently with the new HD-XA2 and when I get the HDMI to DVI cable working I will have to recalibrate.

And yes, that cord is the eye for the remote sensor. I forget which one I bought now, but it was about $75. You can see the cords attaching to the IR inputs in the other picture.

I keep meaning to mount it up behind the TV out of sight, but it's one of those things that would take 30 seconds but I just haven't done it. It was a little tricky to get working, but I finally figured out the plasma causes interference with it if it's too close to the TV, so I would press channel-up (for instance) and the volume control on the Receiver would go up.

Once I figured that out, and moved it a few inches away from the plasma, it works great, and I can keep the doors closed where the components are. The fans keep everything pretty cool in there...was a little worried because the 360 is notoriously hot-running, but the temp in there stays at reasonable levels. Plus, by having it enclosed, the fan noise is not an issue for me at all. You can hear it running, but barely, and with the TV on, it's not noticeable at all for me.

I need to find out who makes remote control repeater type things like that. I want to tuck my AVR and such away where I won't have line of sight to them.

Panny TH-42PX60U. Pictures taken with a crappy 5 year old sony digital 3.2 megapixel camera. Has automatic exposure settings so exposure levels were too low to capture the entire image and banding was introduced. Camera also didn't pick up the deeper black details. Of course it looks much better in person.

I am still working on my hometheater, but I wanted to share with you how is coming along. This project took me a lot of years of dreaming, and a lot of hardwork, but it's finally coming true. I hope you like it, the family is really enjoying it and the "kids" are having a blast. My kids are 10, 17, and 22 years old.

This is a 138" screen, and it was done with goo goo paint and the border is regular wood with black paint. When people come to visit they think that it is a real screen. The picture through the Samsung 710 I believe is exellent.

Thank you capek. The theater has become the get-together part of the house. I've always said that when you work hard for something the reward is twice as sweet.

The best thing about putting together my home theater is sharing it with other people. And especially when people see it for the first time, I get to re-experience the way I felt about it when I first finished it. I agree. It makes all the hard work that went into planning and building it more then worthwhile.

Wow! I'm curious what Gary Murrell does for a living to be able to afford $20,000+ in gear at the age of 23. I was living in a fraternity with a shared 19" television at that age.

Man, I don't know how you guys got your pictures of your room to come out so nice. I tried with and without a flash with my camera, and I just couldn't get anything good. But I'll post what I have.

This BTW is in my new house I just moved into literally the last part of Chanukah (or the weekend befor Christmas for my Gentile friends ).



I forgot to move the ottoman out of the way!! But I don't use my TV as a center channel. The equipment is as follows:

Hitachi Ultravision 65" 65SWX20B
Yamaha RX-V800 Receiver
Front Speakers: Bose 301 Series II Reference Bookshelf
Rear Speakers: Bose 161, Wall Mounted
Center Channel: Infinity Dual 10", 80W
Subwoofer: AudioSource 12"

And my HD devices:

Comcast: Scientific Atlanta 8000HD
HD DVD: Xbox 360 with HD DVD add-on
Remote: Logitech Xbox 360 Universal Remote.

Yes I know, not the high end systems some of you have. But hey, I'm married with a 2 year old son. I am happy I don't have all RCA generic equipment, you know? Besides, this stuff has been VERY good to me.







My Xbox 360/HD DVD add-on. I don't where people get that it's ugly. And I hide my wires very well.




Ahhh, the captain's chair.




And last but not least, the movie collection. At least, until I replace some of these with HD DVD's.

Hehe, what can I say. Superman was my favorite of the superheroes. And despite public opinion, I was a sap for Superman Returns. And I had to have Superman and Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut on HD DVD. Wasn't even a question.

Plus, the faceplates for the 360 were only $20 and they were really good quality. If you look in the lower-mid part of the towers I have about 15 360 faceplates including collectors plates I got at the last couple of E3's (my last sadly. ).
