Nice setup Mike! Love the bulldog too, btw.

Just one question... where's the PS3 and/or Xbox 360?

I'm new to the site so I haven't posted any pics of my setup yet but I cant wait to. I'm debating about whether to post pics now or wait until my wife and I move into our new house in three weeks. Any ways, hope to see you 'round the board.

-Nate

Awesome setup Mike.
I wish I had something setup like this :-(

I've got a 60" Samsung UN60EH6000 and a Mitsubishi HD Projector.
Just starting to shop around for a good Home Theater system.

Is this any good Mike - "Yamaha YHT-397 5.1-Channel Home Theater System"

Wow, love your setup - I haven't seen many like it. I may have missed it, but I was wondering where your kitchen is and if you could see the smaller screen from it. How great would that be, my wife would even appreciate a setup like that. Either way, you have a great room congrats.

Thanks guys. I have to take new pics as I just made a major subwoofer upgrade smile.gif

flogix, I'm not familiar with the Yamaha, but you're sure to find info here.

carp, this is a finished basement, but there is a wet bar in the rear that can see both screens.

New sub, sweet!! Now you're talking my language, looking forward to seeing what you got.

For some reason your pics gave me the impression of main level room I don't know why, maybe because your room looks nicer than my basement....smile.gif Any pictures of the rear of the room or did I miss it? thanks!

Very nice setup, and it's cool to see that the dog loves movies as well!

What is the meaning of life?

Ok, might be a stupid question, but I'm going to ask it because I want to know... what is feeding the side tv? Is the same receiver feedings everything? If so, how do you have it showing two different inputs at the same time? Basically I'm interested in doing a very similar thing, I'd like to play xbox on my main screen, but setup a side screen that will allow me to watch tv.... but if I'm not gaming, I want to watch tv on the big screen.... wondering if your setup will let me do that?

Also, any chance of seeing some pictures of the back? Would love to see how you wired everything or is it just going behind the book case? I'm assuming you have a fancy way to connect everything from the back wink.gif

Everything feeds the plasma/projector via HDMI & the side screen via component. That way I can either watch the same thing on both or any of the 3 HD DVR's or Blu-ray separately on either at the same time.

What is unique about your receiver that allow it put out two different displays at the same time? I understand that a splitter is how the plasma/projector function, but I don't understand how sending to the side screen component, allows you to have two different things going at the same time, and how do you determine which sound the speakers put out?

And I have a Onkyo TX-SR507 receiver for what it's worth.

The receiver never comes into play. I use an HDMI switch for the main screens and a component switch for the secondary screen.

Hey Mike. Nice setup. This is your friendly two year reminder to post those pics of your system upgrades!! Have you had any other system updates?
