Thanks for the compliments! Glad you guys like it.
It's an apartment, but I bought it, a condo, so it's ok that I run the wires in the wall. I just need to get the PVC runner to cover the ceiling mounted speakers. There was some metal stud or something that wouldn't let me put a hole in the wall to run the wires as high as I would have liked.
For the TV moount, it was the tiliting Omnimount available at Circuit City. Super easy to install if you find the studs in your room and it comes with everything you need, from the wall screws to the screws for the back of your TV. It moves from side to side, which is great since I have what's called an open floor plan. Basically, it's a U shape with the kitchen in the middle. I have my dinning room on one side which you can kind of see and my desk/office on the other so the TV is visible from all sides.
It's my first place that I actually own, so I can't wait to get a house so I can do a setup like some of you guys have.
If you're asking how I ran the cables in the wall, it was pretty easy, as they are hollow.
And the VGA is on the left, component is on the right in both screen shots., and it's definately the 360 only in those shots. I don't have a PS3 (YET).
I think the huge difference is only so apparent on the Samsung plasmas. My HP plasma (last years model with the Panny glass) is an in between of both.
Also, it seems my camera tends to over saturate the colors when I take pics of the component imput as it doesn't look that fuzzy in person.
There is still a big difference betwee the two inputs, on the Samsung plasma though,
