    We're moving into a gargantuan new house in a few days. What you don't see is the dedicated outlet in the ceiling for a projector, in-wall wiring for rear speakers, and wall sconce rough-ins at strategic locations. Someday it will be a nice movie room. Someday.

    Will there be any colour changes to the room. What was your projector again?

    My "projector" is an 8 year old Mitsubishi 50" NTSC RPTV. When that dies I'll get a front projector. I'm ready for it. We've been moving in; that room looks like a bunch of boxes now. It'll get together.

    Looks a really nice, large room to work with. I'm envious!

    The only problem I see is the irregular shaped walls, which can affect the room acoustics. What are your room dimensions? If you still have enough leftover, perhaps you should consider doing a little re-construction to even out the walls, and make things easier for speaker placement, and acoustic considerations.

    Just a thought...

    Good luck with the new house!

    You have to keep us updated with pictures on your HT build.

    Glad to see you guys got into the new house. I know you are having lots of fun moving in [​IMG] but in the end it is all worth it.

    You definitely need to get one of the new Panasonic AE 500 or Sanyo Z2 units to go in the theater and get rid of that rear projector.

    Neil, Sorry, I was just looking at this post and I realized I never answered your question about color....

    The answer is an emphatic YES. There are color changes in the pipeline, but not in the immediate future.

    Really? I had my eye on an InFocus X1. I'm on a serious budget here. :-/
