    Here's our setup. Got a new TV and new S3's last Christmas. I'm proud to say I got off my duff and did the installation myself. All the speaker and TV cables are under the house and inside the walls. THAT was a LOT of work. :p

    um, yeah. It might be. I was trying to copy my movies on vhs to dvd with my dvd recorder so I could get rid of the vcr. Didn't work, even through composite video in on the dvd player, it says copy protected on them all. The dvd recorder refuses to make a copy of them. I didn't know VHS tapes were protected, you always could copy from vcr to vcr to make a back up tape. I also still have the vcr, becuase before I got my new tv and the display model dvd recorder at the same time last month, I needed the vcr to tune in cable, as the coax input jack on my tv fell off :rolleyes:

    Hey thanks for the kind words. HDTV has been a dream of ours since we moved into this house 5 years ago. Of course back then flat panels cost 15 grand. So we put it off until "HD took off a little more". The introduction of the S3 was what finally tipped the scales enough to make us take the HD plunge. It was worth all the work it took to set up. My Wife did most of the crawling under the house so she gets the credit for being skinny enough to fit down there... :D

    Very nice. I really like how you hid the wiring. Having wired my old house I can certainly appreciate how much of a pain in the arse it is to pull wire. I'll be doing something similiar with this house but it will probably be another year before I'm done.

    Oh, and MythBuster's is sooo freakin' cool!

    Well, mine isn't visible with the TV, at all, at least not in the theater room.

    The S3 in the living room sits quietly in a shelf below the Mitsubishi DLP

    In the theater, however, it's all screen.

    And with the screen gone, there's still no TiVo

    Unless you turn around and look at the closet at the back of the room

    (Grooming the cables is still a work in progress.)

    You can cut a hole in the back of your book case to allow the back of the Tivo (and its wires) to hang out the back so the front of the Tivo is flush with the front of the book case.

    OR, you could return the Tivo and buy a proper TV Stand with the money you get back! :eek: ;)

    I did one better than that. If you'll look closely at the bottom picture above you will see the two left hand panels behind the equipment are oak but the two right hand panels are missing. That's because they aren't panels. They are cabinet doors. I took the stand-in closet built in to the room when I bought the house and knocked out a big piece of the rear wall facing my bedroom. I then replaced the hole in the wall with oak cabinetry and installed 18" wide custom shelving in the closet space. Now what looks like clothes storage in my bedroom opens up to reveal the back side of my video equipment.
