Our new home theatre opened to rave reviews this past weekend.
Video: NEC LT 240
Screen: Behr ceiling white
Audio & DVD: Sony DAVC 990
HDTV - Rogers Explorer 3100

I use a ceiling mount so carefully centred the picture then taped out the exact screen size for a 4:3 picture. Hand-painted slightly rounded corners. My wife is thoroughly impressed with the paint job and the look of the 'screen' The rest of the room is painted a deep burgundy. Curtains and carpet are dark blue - cables were laid before the carpet. Room size is just over 10' x 12'.

Here's an update of my systems:

For my TV viewing, I'll be using these components:

Receiver: Kenwood VR-2080 (DD-DTS)
Front speakers: PSB Centuries
Center speaker: PSB Alpha Center
Rear speakers: PSB Alpha Mites
Subwoofer: PSB Subzero (8")

New home theater:

TV: Sony VPL-HS10 LCD front projector
*NEW* Screen: Draper 106" 16:9 Cineperm Hi-Def Grey
Receiver: NAD Electronics T762 (DD-EX, DTS-ES)
Front Speakers: PSB Stratus Silver

Rear speakers: PSB Image 10S bipoles

For the time being I'll be switching my BEV 6000 receiver from room to room as needed until I can get a second HDTV receiver, hopefully a PVR.

My home theater room is now complete and it is awesome. I finally get to sit back and enjoy it. :lol:

I would love to post pictures of my room, but I'm having internet problems that haven't been resolved yet. I can't seem to upload any large files like jpegs, only small files like messages. Very weird.

I'll see what I can do.

Are you behind a firewall or even a router? If so, you may have to change some settings to allow for uploads. Same thing was happening to me with ICQ. I could not receive/send any pics through my router.
