This is my first thread/post here so I will do a little intro. I have been in several Fantasy Football Leagues over the years and when I moved into my house I have now, I wanted a Man room to watch football on Sundays. Having players to watch on many different teams I wanted to be able to watch almost every game at the same time so I came up with a wall of TV's. It's not pretty but it gets the job done.

Sorry about the quality of the pic, it was taken with my cell phone. If anyone wants more pics of the room let me know, it's full of EAGLES paraphernalia.


Eventually we will grow out of this house and I will either get a bigger room in our new house or I will get a big FROG after I build a garage. Either way I will like to convert to all plasmas mounted on the wall, 2x 50" and 7x 32", and directly above them I want to have a drop down 100"+ screen for movies and HDTV. So, over the next 5-8 years I will be a random viewer of this forum.

Yes, there are two CRT's in the set that my wife and I have had for 10+ years. They are all 27" CRT's and the rear projection is a 65" Toshiba that I bought when I moved into the house 4 years ago. The other 4 27"ers were bought a few months before football season started in 2005, they were the cheapest ones I could find, I think I paid $165 apiece back then.


I was going to upgrade each CRT with a 32" LCD every year or so as you can see in the previous picture where I have a LCD on the right of the TV shelves. I let a friend borrow that LCD while he figures out what kind of HDTV he wants to buy here soon. I just took the photo's below a little while ago.

Please excuse the mess, I play poker up there every once in awhile too and I have to move stuff around to make room for 6-10 people at a table or two.


I have Sunday ticket as it is the only way to watch all the NFL games right now. In the room I have 7 DTV receivers and this past season I borrowed my little girls receiver for the 1pm games, so I could watch 8 games. I think I only missed a hand full of games the entire season. I have a couple friends that come over every Sunday to watch the games that don't get shown locally.


WTF is right, I have an obsession, but the first step is to admit it, at least that's what i've been told.

Whenever I move into a bigger house or get a Big A$$ garage with a FROG, I will be in the planning stage for a HT/TV wall/poker room/bar/game room. My wife has no doubt that I am crazy, but when the stuff comes together for my HT, I think she is going to be impressed, it will look nothing like my current set up. I am going to go for looks next time around instead of just throwing something together in a pinch.


Just sucks living in the south and having NO basement to upgrade. Have to either build a big house or big garage that has a FROG.

So how do you decide what game goes on the big tv and gets sound?

If the eagles are playing, they go up on the big screen by default. Other then that we try to pick the best match up of the weekend. Sometimes if the Eagles play someone like Detroit, I will watch that game on another TV.

I use to have it where I could push a button on my remote and I would get the sound of any of the other 6 TVs, but my Receiver crapped out on me and we really don't need sound on any of the TV's to really get what's going on. Some of the Broadcasters are better off muted anyway IMHO.


When I build a new setup it will be able to switch the sound with one click also.
