The quality leaves alot to be desired...but with a laptop and webcam its the best I can do! Maybe Santa will bring me a digital camera for christmas and I can post some good pics! Anyway, I knocked out the closet that used to be behind the TV and slid the TV back. This increased my viewing distance by a good 2 feet. As for the dog she follows me everywhere...and I didn't want to leave the cat out...even though he is "my wife's cat" (and will always be according to her). He also seems to think floorstanding speakers are just noisy scratching posts...I have to remind him that they are not. If you look carefully you can see my homemade DTS and Dolby signs, as well as my DIY film reel table...not to mention my reflection in the TV. Due to the Dog and Cat, I have to keep the highly reflective protective screen. Light is not a problem thanks to room darkening shades and heavy drapes.
