HTGRs (Home Theatre Game Rooms)

Would love to see some of the setups you guys have for gaming/HT. I seem to always find ideas or tips when viewing other peoples setups. I will start it off with my modest setup.

I will take updated pics once I have my PS3 permanently installed. I like to see everyone's setup. Great idea for a thread.

Too bad we can't make use of the gallery in the forums. I know it takes up a lot of storage and pics being downloaded ue up lots of bandwidth...

Much easier to use image hosting sites. If anyone has questions about using the sites or need help just PM me and I will give you a hand.

OK, here goes.

Yes, that is a laserdisc player under the VCR. The image on the screen is the Halo3 commercial playing on the Xbox360.

Display is a 61" NEC plasma.

I just built this race seat set up for my game room. ( living room as of now )

Once I get a 1080p TV I will move this set up to my heated garage.

Is anyone using a recliner sofa in their HTGR? Just wondering if it makes sense to go that route?

I do not use a recliner sofa. I have played at some friends houses that have them and never actually reclined them. I usually sit up straight when I play action games. Now for movies thats a whole other story.

We have a full length Berkline that has recliners on both ends. The back of the middle seat flips down and has a serving area and cup holders. There is also a drawer under the middle seat that is large enough to hold a couple blankets.

Overall, we are happy with it and it does not cause the HT to be uninviting when entertaining for not the purposes of watching a movie.
