    I thought i'd post a few pics of my current setup for all to see. Its not the best at the moment as i need to sort all the wiring and connections all out but i like it and it works fine.

    I didn't take an overall shot of all my setup together as our living room is a bit messy just now and i didn't think it would make a good picture.

    First up our TV which currently is a black diamond 32" CRT which will be replaced by a lovely projector:

    Next up is the actual setup, We have a Sherwood RD-6106R AV receiver, Sony DVP-CX850D 200 disc dvd changer, Cello dvd recorder, V+ pvr. We also have 2 Eltax C-205 and 4 Ariston MSX-03 speakers that you can't see in this picture and of course an Xbox:

    Finally we have the DVD collection which we use on my setup:

    Wouldn't be better to first upgrade to a lcd instead of a projector?
    And that dvd collection is massive:thumbsup:

    Probably would be just as easy to upgrade to an LCD but i'd rather get a projector and a 60/70inch+ screen for the same price as as smaller sized TV and with my dvd collection i'd get excellent use from a projector.

    The DVD collection has been on going for many years and becuase they can be pretty cheap at times its easy to buy a few here and there without worrying about spending much money. I'd say if there is one thing we like most it would be dvd's.

    Good thing about the old CRT you could fit a good size center speaker on top.

    Too true, keep the TV for regular viewing, drop down screen and fire up PJ for movies, games and major sports :smashin:
