Multimedia, AV Let's do some blatant copy/paste from Ars Technica. A few days ago they ran a story called "What's in your home theatre system?". This poll wasn't so much about listing specific speaker types or amplifier models as it was about a number of more recognisable devices you could vote for. Let's copy their idea, but make it more open: what's in your home theatre setup - and list everything, from CD player to DVR to the type of cabling used. Be as anal about is as you want. Read on for my setup.

Thankfully I just got a harmony remote so I have all this information handy.

I'm running mostly on older gear, but it works well and I can't justify replacing any/most of it just yet.

Remote: Harmony 650 (5 devices)

TV: Samsung TV (LN-S2641D) (26" 720p LCD)

DVD Player: Region-unlocked JVC DVD (XV-N312)

Blu-ray player / Netflix streaming / USB video player:
Insignia (NS-WBRDVD)

Receiver: Yamaha (HTR-5830) -- No HDMI, but that's ok for now, since it has two optical audio in, and I use the component I/O for the JVC and my Wii

STB (QAM tuner): Samsung Digital Set Top Box (DTB-H260F)


I just got the (relatively cheap) harmony remote a couple months ago -- it's made it far less frustrating than having 5 remotes just to watch a movie.
