    I've just modelled my living room on my CAD system here at work and rendered it to get an idea of what i'm after.
    LCD will be the Philips 32PF9986 (80% sure). Just trying to decide on a height for wall mounting.
    I know its not central, but the sofa is off to the right.

    Any opinions? :lease: :thumbsup:

    One thing that stands out is how small the screen looks (presuming everything is to scale). Could be an opportunity to getter a bigger screen aswell as a flatter one - a 42" certainly wouldn't look huge on that wall. How far away is the sofa?

    What sort of recess is that so it would allow you to put all the "bits" in the wall like that.
    Is it all a false wall ? or do they stick out into the dining room or something :laugh:

    Set seems a little high up, won't you damage your neck if you are on the low leather seats?

    Lose the dado rail buddy. Takes the emphasis off the wicked tv.

    render it with a 50mm lens on the camera ( assuming its a 35mm slr type aperture) This will better represent the objective size of things if not the viewing angle.

    (30mm ) if its based on motion picture film.

    I'll try it with a 50mm lens, see what happens.
    The idea about sinking the components into the wall was the wifes!!!! :D
    Anyway, that wall goes into the garage so a box in there isn't a problem.

    DJ, i've kinda got my mind set on an LCD screen, i play a lot of x-box and i heard LCD is better than Plasma for this? (i could be wrong)
    Anyway, the wife REALLY likes the ambilight on the Philips set, (so i'm not pushing a different set :D ) They do it in a 42" version, but i can't afford it. £2500 is about my limit.

    The dado rail does need to come off, but the muppet who had the house before me put EVERYTHING up with no nails and this stuff rips half the wall off with it.
    More renders to follow......... watch this space

    M XBox looks fine on a 42" Panasonic Plasma - less than £2500 too....

    Score the plaster above and below the rail as deep as you can and then remove the rail. The plaster will come away up to the score and not in big lumps. :lesson:

    Quite the opposite. LCD is much poorer IMHO, on fast moving games in particular.
