    Well, we do have a 120 screen that drops down in front of the TVs and covers them, which we usually use for movie viewing or big sporting events.

    I guess I could change the current mounts to fully articulating ones that will allow me to move the outer TVs beyond the outer edges of the big screen. That would then give me a 5-screen setup with a 120 Center Main and 4 40" side TV's :):):) :D

    I remember that awesome setup. Have you upgraded any of the TVs since then?

    Cheers,

    Sounds like a plan. I'd be happy to help with the install if we can watch a Packer game on the big one someday. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    No. I have not upgraded because doing so would mean having to purchase 5 TVs at a time. I have been eyeing possible replacement candidates for the center TV, but I'm still pretty satisfied with the picture we get from it.

    If I ever get on the 3-D bandwagon, perhaps the next center TV will be 3D. I still prefer 2D viewing over 3D, but that's for an entirely different thread altogether. :)

    The big screen that I mentioned a couple of posts ago was installed in the summer of 2010. In a sense, that's sort of an upgrade, right?

    Anyhow, as soon as my budget will allow it, I definitely will get TVs with thinner bezels, as the TVs that are currently installed now have the upper edges blocked by the casing of the roll-down screen. The picture itself is not obstructed, just the upper portion of the bezel.

    TVs with thinner bezels can be mounted lower and look neater.

    In that picture of the setup it reminded me of how much I miss the old HD wing on the left side of ESPN NEWS.

    Displaced Giants fan, so Giants game is priority (rarely switch off even during commercials). The other time slot is usually a mix between Jets, Red Zone or other intriguing matchups.

    I am a Saints fan that watches his team only and then switches to the red zone when my team is done

    I do sometimes go to a Falcons or Bucs game if it is big for them

    Another Saints fans here...

    1) Saints game is always #1
    2) Other NFC South games so I can root for those teams to lose :D
    3) Interesting NFC games
    4) Any other interesting games

    I've had ST for 13 years and I can't imagine Sunday without it.

    Not a fan of the AFC at all? They have exciting teams to watch as well.

    Cool Setup :)

    Are those TVs permanently installed or do they come in from other rooms on game day?

    I also noticed that you have a bunch of remotes sitting on the coffee table there. Do you actually use each one individually to control the boxes for each TV or do you use a universal remote?

    thanks! theyre permanently there on a shelf i built. i programmed each remote to a different frequency so i could control each box. i assume a universal could handle all of them at once i guess i just havent gotten around to it

    i'm a misplaced fan. I can't get many Saints, Redskins or Dolphins games here in Texas (Skins fan by birth, wife is a Dolphins fan, and we both follow the Saints because we went to college in New Orleans). I rarely if ever use game mix or Red Zone.

    How about the TVs, themselves. Are some (or all) of them of the same brand? If so, how is one controlled with a remote without affecting another TV? ie volume control, on/off, etc.

    Die hard Lions fan.

    My setup thus far this season:

    1) Lions on the main screen
    2) Red Zone HD on laptop #1 via DirecTVtoPC
    3) Slingbox to my other receiver for a random game on laptop #2
    4) NFL To Go (when it actually works) on laptop #3
