DrGerbil, Top shelf, second from the left, 4th DVD from the left. Oh yeah, the tv stand is Ikea too. I like the glass because it protects the wires from our puppy.

Superman07, I picked up the 841 because it was the most affordable DVD player ($189 at Fry's) that had a DVI output. I just had to see what a straight digital signal looked like. The main thing I noticed right away was that the colors were more vibrant vs. component cables after calibration with the DVE disc. I've had no problems with it, and I absolutely love the layout of the remote control.

Thanks, Joseph, for the comments! 20 feet is kinda far, but from that distance the picture really looks more film-like.

rabbit77: Nice setup, but aren't the DVDs all around the TV a distraction? There is no way I could setup my HT like that, but if that's the only way, then that's the only way.

You get used to it. Actually at night it's not a problem at all, with the only light coming from the TV. And since I don't watch very often during daylight hours that's not a huge issue.

At first I was thinking about installing doors or even hanging curtains on them but didn't want to do anything permament. Our future plan is to build out of that room and the back of our house and get a real family room, so I can deal with the setup.

Good idea actually. Curtains and rods would be cheap and make it look real classy.

Is that this rack?

http://www.racksandstands.com/prods/...3/0PAL0014.htm

If so, how is:

1) Construction Quality?
2) Ability to Adjust Shelves
3) Ease to Adjust Shelves
4) Sturdy?

Yes it's the same rack, but I got it at wall mart for $39.
The Construction Quality is great. Very sturdy. You can adjust shelves very easy, just unscrew 4 bolts. You can make it hold any size media. CD, DVD, VHS, Software. Very nice.

Now there's a necessary item for every swinging single's room -- a camcorder!

"Oh that?! It doesn't even work. Relax, baby. I would never disrespect you like that..."

Memories...

Funny scene from a Fletch movie:

Fletch starts speaking into his dictaphone and we hear:

Female voice on tape recorder: (Heavy breathing)......You're not recording this, are you?

Fletch: No, never, never.

A little late, but here's a couple pics of my home theater. I just finished building it a couple weeks ago, but still saving up some $ for the 2nd row of seating...

No pics of the equipment rack, but here's what drives this room:

Harman Kardon AVR7200 receiver
JVC AV-56WP30 16:9 RPTV
JVC XV-S500BK DVD player
JVC HR-S3500U VHS player
Samsung SIR-T151 HD receiver
Mirage OM-C2 center
Mirage OM-6 fronts (each w/two 8" subs @ 150w)
Sound Dynamics RTS-1 surrounds

I'm kinda partial to red and black myself. Just painted it when we moved in back in July. I'm not sure what color the other room should be, I was thinking grey and black. And now I finally get to post some pics. Still a long way to go. I had two goals for both the entertainment setup and dvd storage. I didn't want any of it on the floor, and I wanted the majority of my DVD Collection behind glass. Dog hair is a bitch. That and I have a new baby(and a 3 y.o. niece) and I wanted everything out of reach of children.

Built the DVD Shelves a month ago. I am awaiting sliding glass panels for them. The top and bottom shelves are open with the middle encased in locking glass like you see at Wal-Mart and Target. So kiddie movies will go on the open bottom/unlocked part.

Enough talk...

Michael, I like the DVD shelf. Did you make it yourself? How many DVDs does it hold?

LOL. Funniest thing I have read all day. I am not a handy person. This was the first thing I have ever built. The hardest part of the actual building was the two vertical boards. It took about two hours to measure and 'router' them out. Once those two were done, it was smooth sailing. I have some other shots from when I was building it I can post when I get home from work.

The hardest part is the pre-planning. I sketched out what I wanted and then laid it out in a CAD program to get exact dimensions. That and I wanted to see just how many it will hold. 816+. That was the initial design, I think based on board lengths though an inch or two may have been added here and there and my original design had a verticle board down the center for added support. That is not including the very top-top shelf where the box sets are.

There is only one thing I would have done different, I'll describe later when I have closer pictures.

Lastly cost. It cost more than I expected, and when I originally went to home depot to purchase everything I balked. Had it all on my cart and left it. It ended up being around $175 for every thing from wood to screws, to mounting brackets. More than I wanted to spend, but I figured why spend $100 on some pre-made shelves that I don't like? This was going to be a show piece. So I bit the bullet. Glad I did too. I love it. I've priced the glass and that is going to run another $50. But I think it will add so much more character to it.
