One of my theater areas. The Family Room. Excuse the mess, we have been very busy lately and haven't had time to clean house that much.


As you walk into the room..




A closer look. This HTPC is in an Ahanix D4 case, sitting in that cabinet under the mirror. This is connected to a HDMI switch, which is in turn connected to an Infocus IN 72 projector. On the audio side, it's connected to a run of the mill Pioneer VSX receiver using digital coax.




The projector..




The screen. DIY, using a velvet cloth encased frame, with Pioneer plasma speakers attached to the screen itself. My design.
Didn't need surround sound in this room. The plasma speakers and a sub are more than enough. (The image displayed right now, is of course with all lights on and with the flash on in the camera. I can build computers, but I don't take pictures that well. Still have to try some shooting int he dark to take screen shots of the displayed video quality.




View from the couch.. (You can see the sub sitting under the side table)

Here is a few. Forgive the bad PQ.


The Sharp "52 is waiting on my new HTPC, due tomorrow. Will post some new pics when I finish the build.


The other is a closet install in the bedroom I wanted to share.

Weird, I think you have the same house as I do! That wall can actually support the weight of the television? It can't be a plasma, those things are heavy!
