So, post your 360 screenshots and tv u r using - Page 2

Stang - I'd watch the heat levels with all of that equipment jammed in there. Just the A/V receiver alone is a huge red flag. Normally the top of them is completely vented, and typically the manual says not to put anyting on top of them (looks like a cable box on there?) And then the 360 is in a vertical alignment with no clearance on either side or the top, and probably a ton of cables going behind it. I'd look for an alternate location for your 360, or invest in a A/V tower to get better seperation on your equipment. You normally never want to stack stuff directly on each other, there should at least be a shelf between components to allow for flow on all 4 sides.

Thanks for the heads up jon.

I actually think that the 360 has really good ventillation where it is. Since there is no exhaust grill on either of the components to each side of it, and since it has about 2 inches of clearance on each side, I feel like it's getting plenty of cool air.

As for stacking the other components right on top of each other, I completely agree , but I have yet to find a solution that appeases both myself and my wife....heck, getting an HDTV in the first place that wouldn't fit into a cabinet was an enormous step. I'm definatly going to replace it when I find the right piece. But until then, I'll look into seperating the components somehow. Thanks .

I hear ya. The wife approval factor is a big one. Another piece of A/V furniture can sometimes set them off.

As for the 360, with it's fans venting through the back, I think the flow of fresh air is coming in from the sides (which make it more difficult to get air when it's in the vertical position, since the preferations are on the top and bottom with that configuration). I was just thinking of the radiant heat (not exhaust heat) from that A/V receiver, those things get pretty hot (especially with something sitting on top of it) and could warm some of the air trying to enter and cool your 360.

Here are a couple from COD2 and one of my main setup. I'm using a 60" Sony Grand Wega paired with a Rotel RSX-1056 receiver and 5.1 surround using B&W speakers. Truly it's the ultimate gaming experience with the xbox 360.

If anyone cares, I can try for some better pics during the day when the natural lighting will help out.

You guys got some really hot setups.
post #45 of 8018
sweet pics everybody..

Stangs55 So how are you like the JVC D_ILA for gaming? I'm considering that or the Sony.. Still waiting to see the 1080p JVC's at the store as they do not carry the 61" 720p set.

I really couldn't be any happier with it. The DILA hdtv's are known to be VERY bright/saturated displays...so as far as gaming on it goes, I think that you'd be very hard pressed to find a much better looking display. And while rich, bright colors might not be preferable for all your movie watching, imho games just look better like this. Everything seems alive and bright. It also has much better black levels than an LCD (though not quite like a DLP--however with those you'll still lack the brightness) so I can retain alot of my darker details while still displaying the rich colors. Of course there are different color settings on the TV to switch between Theatre, Standard, Dynamic, and Gaming so you can customize your viewing.

So basically I'm very very happy with it.

sweet, thanks for the impressions! The 61" JVC is my number one choice right now.. I'm hoping to get the black as well, but they only had a silver on display.

The side cabinets off to the left and the right. 360 is in the right cabinet. When I have it in the room. Otherwise I use it on my main system in the Living room.

Heck I think your style gets you added bonus points! Very nice. I wish I could pull something off like that at my house but an old Victorian with that style wouldn't mix well.

Nice set-up but I would recommend stting the 360 a plate of wood or something else b/c you're completely blocking the vent sitting on the carpet.
