4. Remote control - would love to integrate an iPad into the mix
5. HTPC - still out on this, have a lot of movies on DVD/BR that I'd love to store - media is so yesterday
6. Star ceiling
That's it for now.
That's a good list. The AT Scope screen and masking are must-haves on my list now. I don't think I could build another personal theater without either of those. In my current place, I kept the AT screen, but didn't go with masking and miss it. We're moving in about 2 years, and I'm a slow DIY guy, so between the design and build, I'd get about 8.74 hours of use from the masking system before moving!
I call dibs on an invite to the first home theater meet!
