    And, of course, what every theater needs:

    [​IMG]


    My HTPC Case, a Norco RPC-450TH:

    [​IMG]

    The Plasma TV is on a ceiling rail system I designed. It allows it to be rotated and stored (out of the way) against the wall. When needed (for things like exercise taps or the Wii - when you need to stand in front of the projector beam and block it), it can be moved out into the room and twisted into position.

    Thanks! Took a long time to build it since I did it as I had money. Best thing about it is no debt! :)

    Thanks! My wife and I love it, we use it for regular TV as well as movies. I rarely go to the theater any more. The last two times were for The Hobbit 2 and the Lego Movie (because, of course, with Legos EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!!). :)

    I just recently replaced my HDMI cable with a Monoprice built Redmere active HDMI cable. All I can say is WOW! My cable was too long (it was about 50 feet and 35 feet is the HDMI limit for passive cables) but it worked when I put it in. Over time, as my components aged, I started seeing sparkles in the blacks and all my colors slowly shifted towards magenta. It was especially noticeable in skin tones.

    The Redmere cable fixed ALL of it. EVERYTHNG looks SOOOO better. I expected it to just remove the sparkles and fix the color - but everything is sharper too, which I did not expect.

    Suffice it to say that with Monoprice's (www.monoprice.com) super low prices I would recommend anyone who has a cable over 30 feet to use a Redmere cable.

    My system is a little lower than some of the offerings in this thread.

    Lounge:
    Panasonic 42PZ80B (Oldie now but still good!)
    Yamaha RX-V1800
    TDL RTL2 Fronts
    Mission 751 Rears
    Quad L-ite Centre Speaker
    [No sub as I had to sell it to fund house move, looking to get a new one in the future, probably a BK]
    PS3/360/WiiU
    Toshiba BDX3200 Multiregion BD+DVD

    HTPC/SAMBA NAS: i3-2100, 4GB RAM, NV GT430 Passive, 5TB Storage, Nexus 430W PSU, OpenElec XBMC on Sandisk Cruzer Extreme (close to a USB3.0 SSD).
    This machine also has Win7 on a 40GB SSD as backup, however is rarely if ever used, the machine boots to OpenELEC by default.


    Bedroom:
    Blaupunkt 39" 1080p LED (Surprisingly OK for £199!!)
    HTPC: Phenom II B45 X4, 4GB RAM, AMD 6450, no storage, OpenElec XBMC on a moderate USB stick (30MBps read, 20MBps write)


    Both systems are linked by Gigabit networking, and are controlled by the XBMC Android remotes on my phone and Kindle, including WOL, although the NAS HTPC is generally left on 24/7 as I access it with everything. Also have a USB wireless mini-media pc keyboard/touch pad unit as backup.

    Works really well in general :)
