It's like a blanket of dust everywhere and I clean every week.

Which reminds me, I was suppose to place an order for one of them air filter machines.

We run 4 large tower air purifiers in our house and it makes a substantial difference with dust, when they are off much of the house is dusty within a couple of days but when they are on it takes a couple of weeks before we notice any real build up. Just be sure to get the permanent HEPA type so you can clean the filter versus having to replace it frequently, we clean our filters about 4 times a year (so every 3 months) and I am always amazed at how much build up there is on the filter. Ours also have the UV to kill bacteria, not sure how much that really helps but we get sick less often and the house smells fresher/cleaner over-all.

Oh and when I saw the dust artifact I was like ok cool I don't feel so bad now, lol! I thought I was the only one with dust problems

lol, thanks!

Yea... we actually have a cat too and it's such a huge hassle. The air filters sound like a great idea... I think the noise they make would be way too noticeable to me though. I hate hearing humming from the laptop when it's on!

Still working on it... but I wanted to share this so far...





I went with an overhead floating shelf design that I actually made myself using (3) Pieces of Press board that were pre-laminated.


NOTES RE. CLOSENESS OF THE RECEIVER TO THE PJ....

Ive run several test and heat doesnt seem to be an issue... Both get warm but just as warm as they did when they were @ further proximity.



Also, a picture of the new 110" Wall-Screen I designed and painted with Behr Silverscreen...




Like I said, Im still working on my new theater room design so final pics wont be up for awhile... however, I dont want to see ANY wires @ all. Wire management is always the most important thing for me.

I know this question is going to have a million answers, but I'd like to start looking for an LCD TV to fit in a smallish office that I'd like to move my 360 up to. Probably looking at 37", 42" might be a little too big, but if the price isn't too bad then I could live with it. A lot of the posts in this thread don't mention what model tv everyone is using. Also I'm not interested in large screen (got a 61" downstairs but need to someday soon move the xbox upstairs to the office. Any suggestions?
post #7959 of 8018
Sharp, Panasonic, Toshiba are usually safe bets for gaming HDTVs. They usually have very little input lag across the board. If you find a model you can try to google it with input lag and someone may have tested it. Panasonic would be limited to 37" or smaller for an LCD. Their plasmas are usually very good with input lag as well and are 42" and larger.

Don't go off of what people believe their input lag to be. People do test these things with a scientific method and results can vary widely. I have seen some people say their model has no input lag and multiple tests conducted say they are wrong.

I think there was a thread on AVS somewhere that had people reporting their results. I have no idea where, but the search function should help you find it. Good luck!

Here's what I had to use while I was in transit. Once I get some better pics I'll post of what I have now.

No black magic. My laptop has HDMI in. I bought because there are a lot of times where I'm on the road. Since I can't always rely on being able to hook up to the hotel tv or the hotel still has old CRT's, I'll always have my portable "HDTV". Having this laptop has paid off so many times.
post #7963 of 8018
hmm, gotta look into that for the future...
post #7964 of 8018
What is that laptop? HDMI in on a laptop is very rare.

I specifically requested it. I'm not sure why they can't make the HDMI output act as an input by a soft or hard switch, but it works. And with windows 7, I can make my laptop act as a wifi hotspot. So now I can take the hotel internet to the laptop and connect my 360 wirelessly to my laptop's hotspot. This laptop has really allowed me to maintain my gaming habits while on the road.

I have a 42" Vizio LCD VO420E in my den. Perfect size for a 12x12 room. Also have a Yamaha soundbar with subwoofer and added LED backlights for behind the tv.

Heres my setup: (ignore the back wall, in the process of repainting)



LG 55" 55LW5600 3D LED TV
Polk R150(Front/Center/Rears) Bookshelf Speakers
Bic H100 Subwoofer
Onkyo TX-605 Receiver
PS3 Slim 120Gb
Gears of War 3 LE 320Gb Xbox360
Nintendo Wii
Verizion Fios HD-DVR

Pretty happy with it, have to be considerate since im in a private house on a top floor so its a little toned down.
Im looking to upgrade to Bic PL-89 & PL-66 speakers in the near future.
Just bought the tv, its amazing!
3D gaming for the win!!!
post #7972 of 8018

screenshots of said screen and HD66 coming after I get everything cleaned up.

Cool Face,

Do you have a write up on the screen build? I've been thinking about building one for the house, and that looks perfect!
post #7974 of 8018
Yup. Check my sig. Most everything is in the AVS build thread. Plus you can check out Backyardtheater.com as its chock full of ideas and other theater setups

post #7978 of 8018
Other than for nostalgic reasons and the use of the original controllers IMHO there is not much reason to have all those consoles as they can be emulated on a computer.

I have an Atari 5200 & 7800, Dreamcast and Nintendo 64 none of which are connected right now due to space limitations.

for those that dont get it, i recommend watching Malibu's Most Wanted

i had a ps2, dreamcast, xbox 1 (power supply fried), and a N64 connected at one point in addition to the xbox 360 and ps3 a recently acquired wii. removed all but the xbox, ps3, and wii also due to space limitations. for emulators im attempting to acquire original controllers due to some very variations that cannot be emulated with an xbox 360 controller (via the pc wireless station). the biggest offender is the n64 controller with its super fugly layout. still i'd rather play emulators with that particular systems' original controller (or new 3rd party version)

here was an early FIFA 12 shot on the Mega Tronn screen:


forza 4 demo:


dashboard with/without flash:


heres a video of the forza 4 demo, you could just make out the screen size on the outside. no audio from game because i was having issues with the cat 6 hdmi extender (check my cine-tronn screen sig link for more info).

I agree there. Nothing like playing the game system with its original controllers except the Atari 2600 as it's joystick was designed for left handed players given its fire button is on the left side of the joystick. A regular Sega Genesis controller works well for the 2600 IIRC, but for the 7800 it has to be modified to bypass the chip inside the controller in order for it to work properly with 7800 games.
