Greetings, I'm looking to build a HT system for my parents in one of the rooms (12' x 20') in the basement of our house. The system will be there for about 2-3 years at which point we'll be moving and most likely upgrading the system. Though I don't really have budget to work with, I'd prefer to keep costs low for this first time system before I start learning more and eventually upgrade to a better system. I'm more of a bargain/value kind of person so I would feel a lot more at peace with that sort of system than an all out high end one. To my understanding, I need the following components: DVD Player: I've always dealt with the cheapo Apex players that can play SVCDs or the low end Pioneer/Sony DVD players. Receiver: Onkyo HTS760? It's around $450 - $500 at various places, anything else to recommend? Speakers/Subwoofer: See above. Projector: Infocus X1, Sanyo PLV-Z1, Panasonic PT-L200U, any others to recommend? (Ordered an Infocus X1, but may cancel it). Projection Screen: Miscillaneous: Line Conditioner/Surge Protector: Cables: (I understand that most cables that come with the sytem are terrible? I've heard of people going to Home Depot for their cable needs?) Furniture: Computer: This is where it gets tricky, I'd like to use the HT system to play DIVX videos and play games. But mostly for videos. Now would I go out and buy one of the media PC's like the one offered by Gateway? Or should I build one? I've built all my past computers before but I'm not sure if I should be looking into some special components. I should really worry about the sound card in this system, a good video card with DVI out for the projector and what else? I'm not even sure how this would fit in with the overall system... would it just be one component or an entire command center? Thanks in advance for taking the time to help me out. Now to continue reading the forums and looking out for deals =T.
