New to this forum, wanted to share my latest HT project. I am on the final stretch of getting it just the way I iwant it. Here are the particulars: Sony 5000E receiver Sony 770ES 400 DVD changer Belikin PureAV power conditioner Vintage Yamaha integrated amp (runs garage and outdoor speakers) Scientific Atlanta HD cable DVR Custom built HTPC running windows XP media center and DVD lobby pro to control DVD changer Niles IR system Sony 50" plasma screen in motorized lift Polk monitors Velodyne sub Harmony Remote Niles outdoor speakers Sony speakers in garage I built this entire system on EBAY. Total of all components was less than $6k. All that remains to do is hook up my ir usb remote so that I can control my mouse pointer and applications with the Harmony remote.
