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.

Receiver: Its a Denon that converts any signal into HDMI so my TV never changes channels. Only has 2 HDMI inputs so I have a splitter from Monoprice.

DVD Player: Oppo

BluRay Player / Netflix: Sony PS3

Display: 60" Sony SXRD

Multimedia (music, downloaded videos, etc.) XBMC running on original XBox with a mod chip.

Speakers:
Sub : Martin Logan Dynamo (awesome)
The rest : Polk Audio

DVR:
Custom made MythTV box (broken recently and probably won't replace). It was nice because it sat in a closet and I could play it seamlessly through PS3 or through XBMC.

What I need:
The Xbox is getting old quick. It doesn't handle HD content well at all and I don't want to make a new MythTV rig. I'll probably wind up building a HTPC capable of running XBMC. Would be nice to be able to do Hulu or clicker.tv on it to.
