Well I have a 30+ thousand dollar setup and I don't own a digital camera for two reasons. I don't use a camera that much and secondly I don't tend to post pictures of myself or my own home. I'm a very private person.

Hey deepfried is that a plasma ya have there. If that is a plasma be warned that those things burn-in pretty quick. Because I have an HD Tivo I tend to watch many Fox shows for a long period of time and that damn Fox13 logo is nicely annoying me on the right hand corner. So now when I watch CBS shows the CBS logo gets blocked out by the Fox logo burnt into my screen. The fox wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't on for 3/4 of the show and a dark blue color logo at that. I'm almost thinking about trashing that damn thing and getting a DLP set because that has been driving me nuts the last few days. It actually ruins the shows because my eyes can't stay away from it.

Yeah, it is a plasma television. I know how serious burn-ins are with these types of televisions but so far, nothing drastic has happened also. You can always burn-off the images though it may take quite a long time depending on how bad it is. I had a slight burn-in when I was using 4:3 mode for just a few minutes and that just vanished after a few seconds once I switched back to 16:9.

This is my current setup in my living room. All of the electronics were purchased while I was in college except for the component video selector. I plan on moving everything here except for a game console or two into my bedroom after I get married. Then I will purchse some bigger (at least 50" DLP or LCD) and better stuff for my living room.

I designed the entertainment center and my dad built it for me (for free!). It was built in four parts. The top, two sides, and the bottom. Each part is made with grooves so that it fits together perfectly. I designed it like this so it would be easy to move. I was going to make the top shelf smaller at first then decided to make it larger so it can store DVDs, picture frames, or larger speakers, etc...

Description:

1, 2 and 3 - Bose Cubes

4 - CD Cases

5 - Phillips DVD 724 (Progressive scan)

6 - HD Cable Box

7 - DVD Drawer - comes out all the way, stores 56 standard DVD cases

8 - Sony STR-DE597

9 - Toshiba 42H83

10 - XBOX

11 - PS2

12 - 8 input Component Video Selector w/ Optical Digital Audio & LAN

13 - Video game drawer - same as DVD Drawer

14 - GameCube

15 - Bose Bass Module - Acoustimass 6

EDIT: I use component video cables for DVD player, Cable Box, XBOX, PS2 & GameCube. I use monster cales for DVD & Cable and use factory cables for the game consoles. I also use Optical Digital Audio for PS2, XBOX, HD Cable Box; Coax Digital for DVD & regular cables for GameCube (which I think is the only option?). I only use the component video switcher for the game consoles. My Cable box has a DVI out, but it is not enabled. I hope to get a DVD player with DVI out at some point so I can finally use the DVI input on my TV.
