I have a very similar setup to yours. I ended up setting all my devices (receiver, DVD player, VCR, etc) facing the side wall and then angle a mirror against the sidewall so I can see the devices from the sofa. Works perfectly fine. Maybe someday I'll get one of those remote extenders. :)

Looks good mate, particular the first shot, the nighttime shot.


Make sure you clean the cables and wires up, try to hide them as much as possible.

Thanks Guys!! I think my favorite part is my Klipsch speaker system paired with the Sony 4ES receiver. Pink Floyd DSOTM never sounded better on SACD.

any condensation from the fishtank?

might want to mount pj a bit higher


nice setup, btw does the cordless kb control work

if it's opposite the receiver, doesn't it need direct line of sight

(i'm assuming yr kb mouse is on yr coffeetable)


also i don't see a lcd/monitor by yr htpc....

myopex,


No, I dont get any condensation. I have the middle of the tank completely covered.


Thanks for the compliment! The key and mouse work just fine to the coffee table. It's not an IR setup, so it travels through the couch. I dont use a monitor other than the projector. The AIW 9800 only supports single monitors although, I could send a secondary signal to my TV if I wanted.


I have my HTPC cabled into my main switch as well so I can surf big screen style and access my other drives on the network. ( I store alot if DVD ISO's on my main system, and play them through the network on my HTPC.)


Soon, I will be upgrading my home network to Gigabit to even more improve performance. It'll be real nice when my network performes like a Hard drive speed wise :^)
