Sounds very cool, and easy. I'm still up in the air whether I will use irule in my new space. Like you, I like having buttons. I will probably just get the Harmony 650 to start. Sounds like you have arrived at a happy place in the HT, Grant!

Grant, I agree - I think I will always want a remote with hard buttons. I used the Harmony 900 for many years but it died so I also bought the elite a couple of months ago. It's great, does everything I need.

@jedimastergrant ,
I bought the Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home, but haven't hooked it up yet to try. I have been waiting until I move my equipment over to a new AV rack. I guess I need to get on that and get it set up. I just seen that Logitech has discontinue the model, but this probably because of the Elite is out now. I hope it will work well when set up.

I have the Ultimate in my living room. It works well. They are probably just coming out with a new model since the Elite is in a different price category. The great thing about the Ultimate is the use of Wifi. And no need to have line of sight with the controller to the hub.

Yeah, that is a good remote that costs next to nothing.

I think I am at a pretty good place as far as upgrades are concerned. I plan to coast for quite some time. There are a few things I need to get straightened out regarding LFE and HDR.

But, of course I can never leave well enough alone. So my HT currently looks like this.



I am right in the middle of a black velvet project and I have made it way more difficult than it needed to be. Lets hope its worth it.

Black velvet is always worth it! And, what are those long rectangular cuts in your ceiling for?

Yep, air vents like Tim stated. I took the actual diffusers out which are 4x36. I thought about wrapping them in fabric but that would be tricky so I am leaning towards lining the cut outs you see in black velvet and just leaving the vents out. The disadvantage is the vents have a 15 degree slant that moves the air more towards the seats. Now I took those out of one of them in the hopes of reducing turbulence. And there was suppose to be a built in damper but it is not user friendly to operate. If I end up leaving them off then I will rely on in line dampers that are installed right near the take off further up stream.
