    Thanks guys. It is a Moulin Rouge poster. That couch is where I sit and its about 13-15 feet from the screen. The screen is about 120" diagonal. The large speakers are Omega Hemptone Compact 8s and are used for stereo only and the smaller ones are Phase Technology and that's what I use for surround sound. Its two totally separate systems.

    I can't put the Wii in the front because I can't plug it directly into the projector easily. The cable's for the projector run into the ceiling and back to the wire room. I don't want to plug and unplug cables from the projector all the time because the mount has 4 axis tilt adjust to aim the projector and it moves if you push too hard. Then the projector would have to be "re-aimed" at the screen every time you mess with the cables. I'm sure I'll figure it out to be honest, I just was hoping there would be a more elegant solution than strewing cables all over the room.

    Whoa what a set-up, i guess it's a wait to see, what exactly the cable is to the sensor then you could splice it for an extension. IR is relativley uncomplicated and fairly easy to connect.

    That's a good point. I have a hard wired IR repeater in my system right now to carry IR to the other room and I spliced that cable. Very good point. So worst case I just have a long cord running across the room while I'm playing and best case maybe I can extend the cable and run it through the ceiling like the rest of my stuff.

    I took some new pictures if anyone is interested...

    These are basically in order, left to right across the front of the room. The main, unscientific goal was to dampen the front of the room (but not completely deaden) up to and including the first reflection points. Also, the panels in the corner are 6" thick bass traps and their unmeasured impact on the room is NOT subtle to me.

    my opinion, nice equipment, stiggy furniture etc, and too many wires...consider that friendly advice,
    oh, and heres another piece,
    STOP SHOWING OFF,
    the forums here because we talk about the wii, and find solutions for other people, not ot brag about your belongings.

    Enoch was right.

    Wow, the comments here are quite astounding. I'm not sure how this classifies as showing off. Its all about attitude. I'm not rubbing it in. I've worked hard to afford what I have and it is what it is, nothing more. Thank you to the people that made positive comments. To everyone else, I'm sorry you feel that way, but whatever.

    id just like to find out.,
    how many people agree with what i just said?
    I do not, initially this thread was to try and solve a problem in a particular setup, seeing that setup is a big help in that regard. There is also a big difference between showing-off and being proud of something you've done and wanting to share it with others.... to the audience they may both look the same, especially in a forum where a lot of inflection/context/etc. can be lost in the pixels, but the its the attitude of the presentation that matters.

    imahawki: I like the improvements since the original pictures, a home theater is going to be my first project once i finally get settled into a more permanent place.

    just one suggestion though, maybe start a new thread in the lounge at the next update since we haven't really discussed the initial problem since the first few posts and then if people don't want to talk about the home theater they don't keep seeing messages pop up in the wii chat section about it
