    Hey guys- I was just hoping I could double check my strategy with some enthusiests. Comments are more than welcome.
    Currently:
    display: 19 inch Samsung TV
    DVD: PS2 with composite cables
    reciever: Harman Kardon AVR 110
    speakers: harman HTIB
    satelite: Dish 501 PVR
    Upgrades currently being shipped to me:
    display: Tosh 42H80
    DVD: JVC XVS65GD (thanks for the review ron)
    cables: AR componet and Svideo across the board
    next up, after these are implemented:
    1) Learning Remote (probably pronto, or HTM-1000)
    2) definately Dish6000 HD set top box, with OTA module and antenae
    3) possibly PSB image speakers for front sound stage/music
    and I think this should carry me through for a little while. I am in a thrid floor aprtment with hardwood floors. Eventually, I'd like to get a more advanced reciever with pre-amp outs and capabilities for side surrounds, but to be honest, everyone who comes over as well as myself is impressed with the small HK system. I don't even get the chance to really open it up that much, so I think the video upgrades I'm currently in the process of should be sufficient for a little while.
    thanks

    Looks like you are doing a soopa doopa job.I am working on the video portion right now.My 36" set recently went to the giant tube in the sky so I had to bring my 27" out of the bedroom.I am hoping to do a nice sized rp or possibly fptv first of the year,and I will of course have to upgrade to a progressive scan dvd player then...I think...

    Looks good to me, though I'd get new speakers just after the remote.

    I would recommend the MX 500 instead of the 1000. Go to remotecentral.com, what I have read it that the 500 is better and eaiser to use.
