Hello All: I have asked a simliar question before, and got some replies, but still could use a little clarification. Here's my concern: when I turn off all of the lights in a room, I find that the TV (a 36" CRT, for now, later a 57" RPTV) hurts my eyes, if it's the only source of light. So, I think I'd like to have other lights on. I suspect that I'd like to have some dimmable lights near the TV, possibly even on the wall behind it, as long as they don't over-power the TV. Or, at least some lights near the front end of my HT, to boost the overall light level a bit, while watching. Got any suggestions? Is it a good plan to put lights in this general area? I don't want flouescent because I have never really liked the colour, plus they are not tyipcally dimmable. These lights should be low power, dimmable, and have very good shades so that it diffuses the light well. So I ask, what if anything have others done to add a bit of eye-comfort light to your room, without detracting from your TV or screen? I am at the wiring stage right now, so suggestions would really help. I know some people use simple lamps on tables, but I'd like to be a little higher tech than that, and have them mounted on a wall or ceiling, with full control (probably x-10). Thanks, and don't be shy about responding ! Tom.
