    Sony KDL46S2010 - 46 LCD - 1080i
    DirecTV Hr20-700
    Yamaha HTR5730 5.1 Surround Sound
    Sony SAFT1H Flat Panel Speakers
    Philips DVP5960 DVD/Multimedia Player with USB port
    APC BACK-UPS 550
    2x1 HDMI Switch (HR20 & DVP5960)

    The TV and DVD Player are connected via HDMI with optical audio going to the Surround Sound Receiver.

    The OTA signal is split to feed the HR20 and the TV directly, in case the HR20 takes a vacation :rolleyes:

    I put some effort into keeping the cabling neat, while keeping servicability in mind.
    I can pull the HR20 out of the front side and access all of the cables into and out of it.
    I can also roll the entire set out away from the wall and get behind there if need be, but the cables stay fairly neat and tidy.
    I tried to set up the UPS so that I would have a minimum of power cables running out of the cabinet. As you can see, I have one cable plugged into the wall outlet.
    That took some doing.

    Overall, I'm happy with the setup.
    The den used to have very dark and very ugly wood paneling, but we got a wild hair a a few weeks ago and painted the paneling one weekend.

    When I still lived at home I shared a room with my two brothers and a "trundle" bed and our TV (big as a Yugo) wouldn't fit in the bedroom. Looks nice by the way...

    Here's the primary system. The H20 is connected to the TV and the media center PC on the right. The HR20 is networked to that PC and another XP system which uses Nero. Sony KDS-60A2000.

    Louisville Slugger,
    If my kids were that neat, I'd let them stay a while longer.
    But the way they are, they're outta here after school!

    Nice, yeah, BDI makes a great credenza. There is such a market for these types of furniture pieces yet so few make them the right way with interchangeable glass/fabric door fittings, proper ventilation, and removeable backings like that. The quality is top-notch too.

    My wife insisted that I not clutter up the great room with speakers everywhere, so I needed something like that BDI so that only the sub is visible. I've got a center channel, a pair of Bose 301's, an xbox, a DVD player, the HR20, a 5.1 receiver, and even an Apple TV in the thing and by looking at it you'd never know. I'd recommend a BDI to anyone.
