Monoprice has screens in that price range, just make sure you factor in their higher than average shipping cost.
I have the 133" grey screen now and love it. Very good quality (and not just "good quality for the price")
Mine is actually constructed exactly like this except in my case it IS a two post relay rack from monoprice as other people guessed.I put it in when I built the basement so it's a non-bearing wall with the studs just the right distance apart to wedge it in there.I left room under it to put my sub behind the wall and port it into the theater as well.I still have to make it "pretty" with some trim and possibly a glass door.It's "industrial" looking and extremely practical so...
Wow I second the the idea that Dredd was a surprise hit with me.
I am sad that it bombed at the box office, I want a sequel which isn't apparently happening now that it's bombed at the box office.
I accidentally ended up with two copies on bluray, some little part of me wants to keep the second copy with the stupid hope that is the one dvd sell that pushes it to "success" - just like firefly sales led to Serenity being made.
Using a 4x4 to run 3 UVerse boxes seems overkill, you are basically reducing it to a 2x4 (Uverse or one other device on the input side)
Why not run dedicate lines from 1 Uverse to each room (relying on the television input selector to choose the device) and then leave the 4x4 for all the other devices?
In each room:
Television Input 1: Line ran back to Uverse
Television Input 2: Line ran back to the 4x4
On the 4x4:
That way you could do all devices...
I have routers and switches built into the common wall between the stair case and the furnace. They haven't gotten too hot yet.
The problem you will have will be with the equipment being too hot for the room i think - not the furnace causing issues. This is because the room isn't that big and the air flow is probably not optimal.
My suggestion - hopefully it's winter and cold where you are - is to check the temp in there over a period of time and see how hot it is without...
Monoprice 4ft relay rack built into the recently completed basement, with the back open to the unfinished storage area so I can walk around and wire it up.
I plan to make (get) a door for it made and I need to add a second patch panel in the back and trunk up cat6 cable so I don't have to feed cables from the back to the switch on the front (I bought a bunch of 1ft patch cables to take care of it once the trunks are in place)
First attempt at an av rack. I am going to clean up the wiring some and add another patch panel and power strip.
1. Patch Panel (for cat6 ran everywhere in the basement)
2. 24 port gig switch
3. 4x2 matrix switch (my 4x4 doesn't play nice with the projector not sure why yet)
4. FIOS box
6. PS3 & AppleTV
7. Xbox 360 and wii
Long time lurker (pre 2006 apparently!) who recently got the last second go ahead (during a major home renovation) to get a theater thrown together.
This is my slacker flying by the seat of my pants type home theater - nothing exciting, nothing pretty, passable functionality but my FIRST HOME THEATER!!! so I wanted to share.
Quick backstory, this was a six week basement build out/moderate changes to the main floor renovation project started before labor day. They...
