    Well well well hi guys, it officially started as of yesterday my [-]home[/-] Bedroom Cinema, Well only being 18 still living with parents i wasn't able to do anything to a huge scale anways,

    Firt of was the overall look of the room i gave it some new furniture first of, as it was going to be a bedroom mroe then my cinema, so i got some ncie new furniture,

    As you can see from the pictures below i currently have a 32" CRt crapper, and normal freeview box (please note i can;t get full scalle operations as of my money and my parents so cnt exactly go drilling around haha)

    Andways were the tv currently is all the is going to be gone, and i cant afford a 42" as of yet, so im getting my projector mounted on the back wall (picture below) and pointing it into the gap etween the wardrobe and the boiler cabinet, i plan on using that for my TV as of now, until next few months i get a wall mounted 42" LCD, then i shall be installing a pull down screen for my projectore, now im hopefully getting a harmon 5.1 surround sound system very shortly and my projectore is being ordered today, the room has black out suede curtains for when i need them shut, and my projectore is 2200 lumens so will be good for the day, also projects at 1080 which is also a bonus, well sorry for not much of an 'AV' thread so far but you get the jist

    Thanks! The pictures are crap quality and make the room look small, couldn't find my digi cam in all the junk

    Looks interesting .. all ways fun to find out what people can manage to accomplish whilst still living with parents... incidentally is the wardrobe in its final position, the gap between it and the other thing looks very small.
