    I have been looking for something similar as well!
    Ruled out Ikea as it is a bit too cheapish looking.

    Jali.co.uk seem to be the UK's cheapest custom cabinet maker.

    A guy on the TiVocommunity UK general Chit Chat forum recommends them:

    Pembertos cabinet is nice and great value, but I decided to go for something a bit more stylish so got an ex-display Bo Concept cabinet which I have removed the back of and I will add metal braces to strengthen it.
    This holds 20 components.

    I will also get a Habitat sideboard to house another 10 components and put everything on castors so they can be easily moved and accessed.

    So about 900 pounds total.

    I suppose a custom job would have been about 1100.

    Here's the cabinet with my unused equipment in (mostly old American TiVos from 1998).

    After we re-decorate I will move my main kit (mostly UK TiVos) into it.

    The sideboard and plasma will set next to this tall cabinet as my wall is only 3m and I would need a 4m long sideboard cabinet to hold all my kit.
    So a 2 unit solution was necessary.

    Besides which anything over 2.1m would have to be carried up 10 flights of stairs as it won't fit in the lift!

    I use about 6 TiVos in the summer, and 8 to 10 in winter.
    I don't watch a lot of TV - it just that it gives me better choice than cable, satellite, Homechoice combined. I guess I have about 600 to 1000 programmes I want to watch at any moment in time.

    I left them recording for the last 7 years so there are loads of stuff for me to watch.

    In reflection it takes me about 3 years to get round to watching stuff.
    By that time the DVD has already come out and its on sale.
    However, at least I have the OPTION of watching a lot of TV.
    I still have several seasons of 24, Buffy, Angel, Charmed, Stargate Atlantis , CSI, etc... that have been sitting on my TiVos , sometimes for years.
    I don't have time to even archive them onto DVD.

    The cabinet is full of my spare unused USA TiVos which are on sale on Ebay.
