    I just wanted to share with you guys our new Dedicated Home theater room. Its being built from scratch.

    We started the foundation may 17th or so. As of Sept 7th it will start to get sheetrocked.
    The room is 15'6"D x 14'3"w.
    It's a odd shape room. The doors are on a angle. Double doors.
    It will have 8 seats. Movie theater style seats. 2 rows of 4.
    106" screen. 16:9. Front stage, Sofits with lights, and columns to hide the speakers in. Also might do fiber optic stars.

    I prewired everything. I ran wires for 7 speakers, Sub, and a DVI-D for the projector. I Also wanted game ports in the room. So i ran a HDMI cable, Component video, S-video, Toslink, Y-R-W rca's and a Cat5e. All got ran to a 4 gang box. Going to get wall plates for everything. Nice and clean, easy to hook up to. There is also a chase in the ceiling.

    All the lighting will be controlled by the Lutron Grafik eye. 6 zones.

    On to some pics.
    Just a few.
    Let me know what you think and any questions. Please be kind, i'm new to HT rooms.

    Thank you!

    I will keep this updated.

    How are people with the Equipment in another room getting the remote's to work? I see philips has a RF to IR but that won't help me inside the room. I have the grafik eye and projector in there.

    How can i get this to work?

    Thanks again
