    Very nice. How do you keep the light out from the windows behind?

    Gary, what kind of audio rack is that? I'm in the market for one and that corner unit seems sweet. Is that homemade?

    Thanks for the comments!!!
    Sean: I have a great rack that stores about 200 dvds inside & 200 cd's on the doors that used to be in our family room. I've since moved it upstairs. I'm definately getting away from buying dvds & moving towards rentals. I've purchased about 350 dvds & sold about 200 over the past few years. I'm going to pare down to my "top 100" dvds.
    Peter: The window doesn't pose much of a problem since it faces east. Most of my viewing is in the afternoon or evening, so the sun is on the other side of the house. I was thinking that we'd have to get room darkening shades with the rear projector, but that hasn't been necessary. I did remove the protective screen which eliminated glare.
    Evan: The audio rack is great! There is a neat system to hide cables on the back of the rack as well. It's a Sanus NF206 that I got from Amazon.com for $599 w/ free shipping. It comes in two or three wood tones.
    Philip: Great suggestion! [​IMG] I'll get right on that one!
    Ron: I have been thinking of having another HT Meet. About 4 of us got together last year & visited each other's houses 1x per month. I may post an open invitation after the super bowl.

    Great setup.

    Now I only wish I had enough for a 50" HDTV and I think i can only afford the 43" 4:3 HDTV.

    I may cry but then again that's life, I hope it's an improvement over my 27" nonhdtv.

    Great pictures,

    ELmO
