Another DownUnder theatre - Page 6

post #151 of 497
Hi Peter,

Thanks for pointing me to your build thread. It's looking stunning thus far and will be quite an inspiration for those aspiring to do the same. Reading the whole thread has already answered a few of my questions asked back on DTVForum.

And to all the other Aussies here - Gidday .

Hi Blade,

Good to see you here ! I'll probably post all pics to both AVS and DTV from now on so feel free to follow both, either or none !

Greg's actually just jealous that I've got another follower.

Cheers,

I assume you're familiar with the phrase 'bugger off' !!

Thanks for the welcome gents. It's always exciting to see a quality build in the making and Peter's certainly fits the bill (No idea who this Greg joker is - sounds like a galah )

Nothing like adding another Aussie stirrer to a thread

Peter,

Great work thus far mate. The Gyprock work looks first rate and I agree with your friend, leave that wiring exposed as it makes for a great talking point (You could always suggest to the unwary / uneducated that most of it powers the offsite/unregistered Nuclear Reactor a couple of stories down).

Here's a link to my iRule "Home" page Peter. All the custom stuff was done in Photoshop. Buttons that are less "Opaque" are those that do not yet have an action/function attached to them (Work in progress). The little blue/white box next tot he "iRule" heading is my first test of a "Feedback Box". Feedback is a little dialogue box that can accept text/numeric data and echo the commands you send your component(s) so they appear in iRule. This is especially useful for those components that do not have an OSD or you are making an RS232 query that would not normally show on your components display. Took me a while to figure it out today but it worked! When I issue UP/DOWN on the Volume control for the Anthem D2V the value is echoed in that little box. Very cool but not it's final resting place (Test only).

More than happy to assist with iRule when you are at that point of your HT Build. It can be as puzzling as telling your wife you have "Plenty of that kind of thing on the computer and why on earth do you want to spend $18:00 on a movie ticket to see it?" after she asked to see "Puss In Boots" the other day

Boy she hits hard!

Cheers

Blade

P.S Greg - will catch up on your thread now mate! I'm not cheap as far as followers go though. Pete's offer was quite persuasive!

And for those of you following from afar ... this is a real galah ...

Nice home page. At the moment I'm just playing with the graphics for iRule, and if you check the Remote Control subforum here, and look for the iRule picture thread (NOT the main iRule thread) you'll see a couple of my current screen grabs. I'm trying to develop a really dark interface to use in a blacked out theatre. All my graphice work is done in Paint.NET.

Oh ... and you'll be interested to know that in the main iRule thread, Alex has recently confirmed they're working on Variables !! That should open up enormous scope for clever programming !

Cheers,

LOL, Galahs, reminds me of "The Dish"

"Do we have a problem?"
"Yeah! You treat us like a pack of galahs!"
"That's a type of parrot."

Nice work Pete. I think if you talk to most people about their iRule Interface it will always be a "Work in progress"! I don't think it will be my final effort.

Variables for iRule? Excellent. I've wanted that feature since version 1.0. Will be very handy indeed.

Cheers

Wiring progress in the garage ... C-Bus board on left, main electrical DB in the centre and security board upper right hidden behind the wires.

Hey Peter,
Mind if I come around and swim in your OSD tank / swimming pool????
Nice weather for ducks!
post #165 of 497
Peter: It appears the Dennis got you to make the decision of Porcella over Seaton. I have never heard anything but good about those speakers.

Since you were here, I have added 4 Seaton Surrounds and improved the acoustics a bunch. It is crazy good.

Keep the pictures coming. I know you are glad to finally be underway !!!

Hi Chuck,

Wecome to my thread !

Did you hear the Procella room in Indy ? It was also crazy good ! The decision was really difficult and I'm sure I would have been happy either way. Mark's cool with my decision as we discussed it in Indy ... I'm very glad that his business is booming !

I followed one of your threads at WBF (???) which discussed fixing your ceiling ... you must be hugely relieved to finally have it working properly. Wish I could hear it !

Pity about the recent Lex announcement to can the MP-20 ... I know you were incredibly impressed (as I was) with their demo at CEDIA. Hopefully they'll still release something soon with that amazing processing.

You're very welcome to visit any time you find yourself down this way !!

Cheers,

Peter, don't know how I hadn't seen your thread? Anyway, we're crossing paths over on Greg's thread and I thought I'd say hello here. The room looks like it will be fantastic! We have similar dimensions, except for your high ceiling. Our large spaces have advantages, but also introduce some unique challenges. Looking forward to following along. Tony

Oh, I see Tony. It was all about me but now you've found something bigger and better than my theater build you are off. Talk about shallow! This must definitely be a part of Peter M's surreptitious recruitment drive for subscribers!

Hi Tony,

Thanks for dropping by.

The real action is about to start as I was at the house this morning and the carpenters have just started on the theatre fitout !! Woo hoo !!!!!

Feel free to comment ... good, bad whatever ! But just remember that under no circumstances are you allowed to say anything nice about Greg in my thread !

Yes Peter,
Photos!

Little does Peter know, but this is a double crossing undercover sting operation. I'm well known for killing threads and was actually recruited by Greg to take this one down from the inside. Greg gets rid of some competition in the Aussie home theater market and I get a few checks out of the deal.

A few photos ...

AngelStep + 2 layers of 1/2" ply + GG on the floor ...





Most of the other timber for the fitout has been delivered ...



Close up of the AngelStep ...

Hi there Peter,

Never seen the angelstep in the flesh - what sort of load per sqm can it handle?

Hi Peter,

I'm not sure, but I was concerned about it's ability to handle heavy concentrated loads long term so I've replaced it with 100mm wide plywood under the bearers for the riser, under the screen wall, and under the baffle wall. I've probably lost some isolation by doing this but at least I know there won't be long term problems.

With two layers of ply over the top I have no concerns at all about it's ability to take normal live loads, chairs etc.

Cheers,
Peter M
