Hi, sorry to see that you have placed the "computers and HTPC" section under that heading. I had a sony dvd and a sony cd changer hooked up to my system before I started to use my HTPC for these functions instead. Now I'm much happier. The DVP-650 and the 5 disc CD changer are sitting in the spare room idling right now. For PJ users the HTPC can provide wonderful advantages. For HDTV owners the HTPC can provide great scaling functionality and compete with progressive DVD players. How is this an "other distraction" from my Home theater hobby? this isn't the same as the after hours loungs, is it?
