Show off your home setup! (56k warning)
Spin off from portable stuff thread, I thought we should have a similar thread with home setup.
My tiny room doesn't have much of a setup what looks goes, but it prob works several times better than what the rich bragging guys you see everywhere has.

NOTE: I didn't include my multitable nor the headphone closet but rest assure they're still there :)


Phillips DVP5960 dvd player, with DivX capability and USB. 30GB externall HDD visible on top, usually connected to the DVD player.


TV. Big (26"). Not LCD or plasma.


"dock" For my cell, blinks up so nice when I get a call ^^


My D2 in its DIY dragon stand, and the now modified Sound to LED box.
Below it is my audio switch, so I can easily switch input from PC/D2/DVD and output to headphones/wireless headphones/speakers.
Speakers are not shown, but I have these:



Wireless headphones ftw!


Part of my DVD collection.


So there you have mine, now go ahead and post your home setups!

Do you like green shelves?

saminthehat 04-14-2007 04:02 PM

Of course, yes.

Abhorsen3rd 04-14-2007 04:25 PM

Nice wallpaper :)

saminthehat 04-14-2007 04:27 PM

That's what everyone says! When I was a kid my mum decorated my room my room like a seabed. The ceiling is sky blue and the lamp is supposed to be the Sun. It's gotten boring though and I should be changing it to a nice navy blue soon.

P.S. 700 posts! w00t!

my media center consids of a 5.1 speaker system, a 36 in crt tv, a footon (where friends quiet often decide to stay), and a xbox with xbmc with a whole bunch of custom scripts, its amazing, bassicly does everything the apple tv does for like 100$ ;).

saminthehat 04-15-2007 02:10 PM

Nice, by the end of the year I should have an X360 with Media Center on a 32" HD LCD.

You should mod your xbox to run XBMC, its really nice, youll be happier with it as a media center than x360s offerings.

saminthehat 04-15-2007 02:52 PM

Is it purely software hacks cos I don't really wanna open my Xbox up? Could you provide a link too? Cheers.

a12ctic 04-15-2007 02:57 PM

Oh, yeah, you need to hardmod it.

saminthehat 04-15-2007 03:00 PM
