P.S., The red headed 3 or 4 year old in the pics looks like my three year old Grandson. Is he into Sponge Bob Squarepants like my GS ?

I am Icelandic born and raised, my house in the outskirts of Reykjavik, the neigberhood is still being built so it will look a bit more suburban in a couple of years, but I will still have the view out from my balcany wich is great on a cleer day. The huge hanger you see is a giant indoor soccer field and sportscenter and the small buildings on the side of the hangar are stables, but they will be removed soon. About Spongebob he hasn´t seen that much of him but he loves a show called Dora the explorer if you know that one.

Thanks for all your kind compliments guys, it makes it all worth the effort

Regards

My humble arrangement. Samsung 50in 720p DLP. Several year old Onkyo HT-R500: 5.1 100w per channel; 120w powered sub (i think). Old Panny SD DVD RV-31; XBox 360 Elite with HD-DVD drive.

Don't mind all the cables around the Xbox, it's leaving tonight I believe. Just got the HD DVD drive for Christmas, tried to return it but it was purchased to far in advance. Found a buyer for the Elite, HD, 6 HD movies and several games on Craigslist. Putting that, and the $50 gift card BB is sending out towards a Blu Ray (well, i'll some extra probably) whenever the new ones come out. Might buy a discounted 1.1, not sure I care about the extra features on the 2.0...have more reading to do though.

Onkyo 605 receiver
2x JBL Venue Series Stadium 8-Inch 3-Way Speaker for fronts

JBL Venue Series SUB10 10-Inch Subwoofer
Dish Network 770 PVR
Toshiba HD XA2 HD DVD player

Is your IKEA stuff from the Besta series? If it is I think you bought the exact setup from them that I'm going to get next month. If I have the room I might get the double bookcases for a little extra storage/display area. Great looking setup either way.

I just bought and prewired this 12' x 36' room for....
- Optoma HD Projector
- 100" Projector Screen
- Onkyo TXSR605 Reciever
- Bose 6.1 Speakers
- HD DVD Player
- Nintendo Wii



How should I organize a 4' stereo closet? It's just off the the left of the picture
How should I seat this room for 8 people? I have a large sectional which might take up too much room.
What would be a cool setup to house 350 DVD's?

Any input would be greatly appreciated

small cases tend to have bad performance (not enough air flow, or everything thrown in together), and good small HTPC's are expensive just because smaller parts are always more money..gr

Yeah I use it mostly to check out websites from my couch. Sometimes I use it to watch episodes of TV shows online. I can also stream music and pictures from my other PC's in the house and listen to my Sirius online through my Polks which is cool. It's not a very beefy machine, but does the job I need it to do. Most people that come over think it's pretty slick, but it wouldn't impress the average AVS member :P

I find that "big" HTPC cases are better looking. Those about the size of a receiver or an amp just looks like another nice piece of equipment. Some have a small display, a DVD tray and a volume knob. Needs to be simple.

Sorry guys... I'm not into modding my pc case with neons. Sleek look is still the winner.

You guys got pics of your HTPC case only?
