    Thanks :blush:

    Thats what the forums are for.

    The brown suede is excellent for home cinema imo, not only does it look very classy it is also very light absorbant.

    It looks excellent, especially the way it now looks like an original room.
    I bet you cannot wait until its complete.

    Nice one... I also want to convert my garage into a "normal" room later (behind my lounge/HC).
    What do you guys do for heating in there?

    ...that looks like a veritas excel alarm and rkp.... you can remove the rkp if you want - help tidy that up ....

    I assume obviously that you have another rkp elsewhere!

    the alarm system will get boxed in with a little door for access. that is a veritas excel with a phone dialer, so it rings my phone if it went off.

    the decorator is in at the momment, will take more shots soon.

    had my 203 cm saphire remote electric screen deliverd today and its heavy, does anyone have any ideas as to how to mount it on the ceiling because there only seems to be plasterboard?

    Hi...

    There must be straps holding to which the platerboard is screwed... or depending on construction, straight onto the joists for the floor above.

    You could get a length of wood cut, fix it to the ceiling joists above, then screw the screen to the newly fixed wood....

    AVNutter - have you played with your Excel?

    It has 8 (from memory) aux outputs and is programmable from a PC..... there is a serial connector inside on the PCB and you can get a small interface from texecom for not much money!

    a qustion for inzaman......
    my decorator has just been today and he did the first coat of the suede paint with a roller. i was at work at the time and i,ve just got back and it does not look too good. i asume he will do the second coat with a brush with random movements. am i right or should i be worried? and if that is the case will it come out ok with a secon coat using a brush? thanks in advance.

    We tried the chocolate suede colour a few weeks ago and it did look terrible after the first coat - the look improved considerably after the second.

    All looking good. A side issue but your house looks better from the outside too with only one garage, it seems to look more balanced.

    Looking forward to the next stage pics!

    the same as what inzaman has used.
