It is a beast. Can watch a BD from the XBMC library while I'm ripping etc.
Anyways, love this thing.
Anyone else have a HTPC with XBMC? So seamless!
First let me say you've got a nice HT coming along there.
As far as suggestions for high WAF colors, I suggest a satin finish caramel color for the walls, it has a high WAF and reflects much less light than say a semi gloss "off white" like you were considering. I had it in the last house and went with a satin finish Blue/gray color on 3 walls, light gray on the TV wall in this house to mix up the colors a little bit and open up the space since it's a small house and the living room is my "Home Theater experience" room.
I'm curious what programs/steps you're using to rip your BD's into a playable format on your HTPC and how they play back.
Currently I have AnyDVDHD and PowerDVD9 that came with my BD drive and it sucks.
I'd also be interested in seeing some screenshots of what XBMC looks like and how it navigates if you've got time.
Thanks and good luck on finishing out the room.
