As more and more of us are getting into HDM in some way or another what do you own in your own HT?

You should have included HD CRT TVs: both rear projection and direct view.

Parker, did you mean to say "High Def Rear Projection" rather than "High Def Rear Panel"?

My guess because they no longer make them. But I do have a Sony CRT RPTV with HDMI.

Added the CRT and HD PVR suggestions. Dennis thanks for the heads up.

I have an LCD front projector, a small LCD flat panel (computer monitor but used as a display--it is HDMI/HDCP compliant and has a resolution of 1680x1050), an HD DVD player (A2) and an HD PVR in the HT room. I have another HD PVR and HD DVD player in the living room, but currently hooked up to an SDTV.

Edited to add:

I've recently added a PS3 to the setup--which completes my HT for the foreseeable future. An HDMI receiver/pre-pro will be the next upgrade, but that one is a few years away (unless my receiver unexpectedly "dies" or I come into some unexpected money).

To qualify as Hi Def, does a receiver have to have HDMI audio processing or just plain old Toslink?

Blaine:

Does the receiver handle lossless high definition audio?

Just updated my status here. I am now the proud owner of a 32" Sony Bravia LCD, and have had an HD-A30 since the end of January. Working on my theatre one piece @ a time. Next will either be a new receiver and speakers or a PS3.

Update: 2009/04/03-- I now have a Sony STR-DG720 7.1 HDMI receiver and a Sony BDP-S350. I love tax return season!

In October 2006 I purchased the Sony's "cutting edge" in HD technology, the SXRD rear projection HD TV. It was only a little over a year later that Sony dumped the technology. I have been pleased with mine, so far. I also have an HD DVR through Comcast, which I wish had more space for HD broadcasts.

Add an e-SATA drive (it's easy). I went from 20 to 80 hours of HD capacity by adding a 500gig drive to my HD PVR. Took 5 minutes.

I have a Samsung HD CRT. Is that considered 'front projection?"

For me, the answer is "yes" it handles it via analog 5.1 connections...but I would hardly describe a Sony STRDE-445 as "high-def." Posted Image Do you?

Front projection means "projecting from the front", as in a projector. Rear projection is a projection display projecting onto a screen located in the same cabinet as the projection elements (CRT, LCD, SXRD, LCOS). I'm guessing yours is rear projection, Mike.

Well, based on Stephen's guess (Thanks, Stephen!) I put down Rear Projection CRT HD display.

And even though I hesitate to call my receiver "high-def", I put it down, too...since I am channeling lossless audio through it via analog connections.

Also, HD DVR and Blu-ray player.

Hope I don't throw off the curve with those other answers. Posted Image

Maybe someone on this forum can help (no help on HDTV hardware forum yet). I have an 8 year old HD rear projection Mitsubishi (73 inch model). So far, not compatible with the new Directv HR21 DVR. The DVR outputs in 3 cable component (YPrPb) and HDMI. HDTV doesn't have HDMI. The component input of the HDTV is 5 cable (YPrPbHV). The 3 cable output of DVR is not compatible with 5 cable component input on HDTV. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Dave.
