Also, what's up with the pulldown screen to the left in the bedroom? Again, just curious, not complaining. You've avtually done a good job of cramming so much into such a small space...although I'm not able to understand the need for two different setups in the bedroom.
For me, the living room sound fine. You can easily distinguish where the sound is coming from. I'm sure it will sound better w/rug and something to absorb the sounds off the wall. As for the bedroom. I always had the projector with the ps3/360 connected. However, the 3rd xbox I won a kinect/360 bundle in a local contest and the PS3 belonged to a friend that didn't like PSN. He wanted to trade it in to gamestop but they only offered 100. I gave him 150 for the ps3 slim (250gb).
Now lets talk about why 3 systems.....Initially, I used the PS3 in the living room for bluray and gaming. However, gaming on the TV w/out game mode on and the 120hz on there was too much lag. So, I bought the bluray player for the living room so I would not have to always change to game mode and adjust the 120hz on the tv everytime I watched a movie/played games. The kinect, I had to place it in the living room. So my original two 360's are played as follows (along w/the 2 PS3's in the room). The projector is used only on the weekend when I know I will likely be on for more than two hrs. When I get home from work and just want to unwind for a few games, I play on the tv in the bedroom as I don't want to turn on and off the bulb so frequently of the projector. I would love to play more often in the living room. But with the new surround system, the family is ALWAYS on it. To be honest, I only touch the TV in the living room when we're all going to watch a movie or when we play kinect.
As for the projector and the screen. It' nothing more than a white wall that I placed a rod on the top and ran a black cloth on the top and sides. Unfortunately , the curtain was not long enough to be drapped evenly on both side(up and down). When the lights are off and game/movie is on you do not see that the the sides are not one symmetrical piece. It's not in the viewing screen at all and I placed the curtain so you can't see that I was not able to paint the corners very nice. LOL
