    Your HDTV Setups

    I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread where you can post your HDTV setups for others to see.

    • Please keep the pictures to a sensible resolution (No higher than 800 x 600)
    • A maximum of 3 images. If you have more please link to them instead of using [IMG] tags
    • Try to include a small description
    • Keep chit chat to a minimum, If you want to ask a question private message the owner, or make a post in the main forum.
    • Please try and keep the links alive. We don't want to see red X's.

    Here's mine. It's a bit rough round the edges as I've just moved in to my new flat, so speakers need to be attached to walls etc.



    Setup is:

    Sagem 50" 720p set.
    PC: A64 3200, 1.5gb pc3200 ram, GF6800, 160gb, 300gb & external 250GB HDDs, connected to TV via DVI to HDMI, connected to amp via digital coax.
    Xbox: Connected to TV via HDTV AV Pack to J.S. Technologies Auto-sensing component switcher, connected to amp via Optical through a splitter.
    PS2: Connected to TV via component to J.S. Technologies Auto-sensing component switcher, connected to amp via Optical through a splitter.

    All 3 connected to broadband via switch => router => NTL.

    Amp: Pure Digital Digitheatre DTS 5.1
    NTL: Connected via RGB scart.
    Archos AV400: Connected to NTL box for DVR, and via scart to TV.

    Pulp Fiction in 1080i playing, but the camera shot is pretty poor, so here is a link to a btter shot of the same copy. Both jpeg so not ideal...

    My setup includes a Pioneer PDP505XDE Plasma Screen, a Pioneer Amp connected to 5.1 Mordaunt Short Premiere Plus speakers. Pioneer 868 DVD Player, Sky+ and XBOX360.
    I took the pictures when I first got the 360, I was that overjoyed.







    There's a few more pictures of the same setup here if anyone fancies a look.

    Big TV setup i can do. HD hasn't made it to my place yet though. Might end up with an HD screen for the bedroom, but won't have a source for a few years yet.
