Reorganized for better bass, previous setup had a bass null at the viewing position (center of the room) and since I couldn't find a better spot for the subwoofer, I ended up rotating the whole setup.

Blu-ray & HD-DVD collection (top row comprises of free discs, hence Waterworld and Postman.. just felt like I needed to point out that I didn't buy them)

New stack, at the top my new beast of a receiver, Onkyo's TX-NR5007. Cable management? What's that? (I'll try to hide them a little better once I'm sure I like the new setup).

My minimalist setup for right now. Having my Logitech THX-5500 on this system instead of a real audiophile setup is killing me.

very basic setup still. so far my notebook is used as a media center pc. it gets way too hot after a few hours i will replace it with a htpc soon. the hifi system i got 2 days ago for cheap and loving it, the headphones as well. unsure about the dioders if i will keep them that way.

a shame my cheap htc sensation cam cant show better picture :/

as you can see i stream some youtube vid via wlan thanks to macrotube.

- tv: sony kdl40w4000

- hifi system: pioneer a-z470 / sp-z570

- headphones (those on the very left): technics rp-dj1210

- xbox is still first gen core edition with a refurbished hd bought at microsoft.

- receiver: some default model nothing special

btw. my flat is too small for bigger tv or anything else.

if some1 has an idea for the following problem: notebook is connected to hdmi2 with my tv and streams sound via hdmi cable too. on hdmi1 i use the tv-receiver. now if i switch from hdmi2 to hdmi1 and after a bit back to hdmi2 there is no sound anymore. i always have to reboot the notebook and then i have sound back. i suspect its because the notebook (acer ferrari 5000) is pretty old and maybe not 100% up to windows 7.... however the thing is if i spend now 300 or 400 euros for a htpc connecting via hdmi again and have the same problem i better save the money. has someone similar setup (htpc connected on a hdmi port and the tv receiver on a 2nd hdmi port) and can confirm it is working without issues?

Why don't you just replace the laptop with an Apple Tv or Raspberry Pi and use that to get to your movies, Catch Up Services etc?

Aren't those blue LED strips a little off-putting when watching a film?

 

Moreover, surely you want to see the glow not the LEDs themselves, eg - put them behind the TV?

I loved this thread, wish it was still active. This pictures a little old, the TVs been upgraded last week to a Samsung 65MU8000 as well the receiver which is now a Sony 1060 (I think that's the model). Also the Xbox 360 games have mostly come out of the racking as I need more space for movies.

Yeah, starting the 4k discs now. Also got rid of the love seat for two home theater chairs.
