    Sorry if this thread has been done before recently. Nothing came up in my half assed attempt at a search.

    The Brazilian sensor bar thread got me thinking about how much I like seeing how other people set up their game systems in their living rooms and bedrooms. You know, what kind of TV, what kind of systems and where, what sort of entertainment center, that sort of thing.

    I'm even more interested in ideas because I'm going to be getting a new TV and stuff pretty soon, and I wouldn't mind seeing what other people have done.

    Or, if your system setup is a rabbit ears set and an old school Nintendo, that would still be cool to see. [​IMG]

    I'm at work right now, but I'll be able to post mine later in the day. In the interim, I'd love to see what you guys have got. [​IMG]

    I always think about posting in a topic like this and since I got a new TV I might aswell.

    [​IMG]

    Setup:
    Samsung 32" LCD HDTV
    Wii
    Xbox 360
    Xbox (running XBMC)
    PStwo
    Sony DVD/Surround Sound System
    Component Switch
    Optical Switch
    Wireless ADSL Router
    Everything is hooked up via component cables plus either digital optical or analogue stereo audio.

    There should be a NAS next to the router but I haven't hooked it up yet.

    As I am only around here for a few more months most of my equipment is elsewhere, still:
    My new rig from a few months back:

    My little brothers PS2 (swapped so I could play FF12) wired via one of these:

    I was forced to ditch 3 of my extra monitors so I am left with this:

    Courtesy of external drives and DVDs about 8 terabytes of stuff to watch/play.

    Poor Gamecube didn't even get a mention, not allowed to sit with the big boys?


    Good choice of TV btw... Everyone has such good TVs... I only have a crappy 14" boob tube >_>. I've been meaning to connect everything upto my 20.1" HP LCD monitor via s-video on my PC TV tuner card but I need to get an s-video cable for my Wii. I really want to splash out on a proper LCD TV for a component cable setup but I go to uni in September and I just won't have the room for one. [​IMG]

    I only use my Gamecube (component cables aswell) if I need to play a copied game as I dont' have (or want) a chip in my Wii.

    I sometimes just use a scan converter so I can play video games on my monitor, although my Gamecube just keeps giving me disk read errors.

    I doubt a picture of a PS2 surrounded by spider plants and a 14" TV is worth the bandwidth. But the TV's metallic blue so it owns you all [​IMG]

    There's not much to see, but when you ask so nicely how can I say no?

    My DS's wrist strap crept in on the bottom right, sneaky little thing.

    Both the poster and the dude in the dumper truck belong to my sister [​IMG] It's a shared room but she's at uni atm. The poster's one of those dumb "area 51, don't enter without permission" ones, I've always hated it.

    Caoimhin: It's a glitter lamp. It was a present so dunno where it's from.

    Glitter lamp? It's the same as a lava lamp, but with glitter instead of the "lava"? [​IMG]
