Update: we got 80 percent of the cabling ran. I hooked up my 30ft 22 gauge HDMI high speed cable from monoprice and everything was working great got it ran in the wall, everything was hooked up and was really pumped with how everything was looking and working. 4 days ago I was watching a movie with the kids and lost signal to the tv, so i figured a cable had come loose everything was in tight. traced it back to the HDMI cable, it is so thick it was pulling up on the output port on my receiver and loosing signal. I think the cable has a short in it.

So i contacted monoprice and did their customer service chat, all I have to say is their company is great and everything I order from them I am reminded of why I keep going back. They set up a RMA for the bad cable and told me for my setup I should be using the 30ft Ultra Slim High Performance HDMI® Cable w/ RedMere® Technology
http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
its 46.00 vs the 30.00 for the other cable but it is a normal thickness so I just need to wait for them to get more instock then I will order one. So I guess that means the theater room is down until I get that cable, which isn't so much a bad thing as I will have a reason to do more work on the house

anyways I will update more photos soon. My wife found alot of Home theater and Cinema signs at Hobby lobby for 50-75% off so we will be putting those up as well.

I'm waiting for that cable myself for my basement. I've ordered a bunch of stuff and I was waiting and waiting for it to be in stock. I finally got fed up and placed my order for a bunch of stuff so that I can begin wiring up my basement.

UPDATE****

The theater room is really coming together now I am about 95% done with the construction side of it and I am now working on the equipment side (speakers) as I realizing that the 7.1 system is not sounding up to par, and the fact that i have mixed brands with my fronts and sub being Cerwin Vegas (at least 10 years old) center a Sony center channel ( 6-7 years old ) and Yamaha satellites as rears and surrounds.

I am waiting to pull the trigger on a pair of POLK monitor 60 series II and a CS2 Center channel. I have them in the cart just waiting to hit purchase they have to be better than what i am running now. anyways here is what i have so far









Like i said its getting there...... my middle child had her birthday party at the house today and we had a movie theater themed party with a red carpet and popcorn and candy hotdogs and nachos, it was great and the 10 kids that were here laying on the floor had a blast watching LION KING on the 73 inch TV.

Dont mind the mess in the media closet, had a switch go bad on us and i had to re run some cabling and dont have it hidden and tied back yet.

Finally got some pics off my phone of the Prosub 800 I have better ones I will post tonight. This thing packs a massive punch and I can't believe the sound from something this small. Not bad for something I picked up for $107.00 on clearance at Best Buy. Amazon shows it books for 400.00 http://www.amazon.com/Definitive-Tec...rds=prosub+800
Has a few chips in the wood as it was a display model and the fact it's white and stands out like a sore thumb with all my black equipment but I love it.... Will post pics of my new Polk center and fronts

also been playing around with a touchscreen jukebox to mount on one off the walls in the theater room that ties in with the theater sound. still in the testing phase but its pretty cool none the less. I picked the 18 inch touch screen for 70$ on ebay and put together a pc with some spare parts I had.

You have a living space right there with a lot of prospective and its difficult to keep all the offerings away , but if it was me i would take other street ,by replacing surfaces and moving wires.

Update:

The theater room is about 95% done, well WAS about 95% done. We have a dehumidifier in the room that runs when we are not using it, my wife emptied it and spilled a little water on the carpet. I cleaned it up when I got home and didn't think anything of it. 2days later I was paying the PS3 and walked out if the room and noticed the floor was wet still. Got down and felt the floor and it was really damp, did a little searching and my DVD shelf and another shelf were wet and had soaked up water. I went in the room that is behind that wall and its where our air conditioner and furnace are, the condenser pump had gotten clocked and the water had no where to go for 3 days and backed up and leaked water under the wall and the thick carpet pad soaked up all the water. The trim is ruined both shelves are ruined nd the drywall will need replaced possibly. Pulled the carpet up and had to remove 1/3 of the pad . They are coming out to replace the pad this week. I'm including pics.

What a nightmare... Sorry to hear about the flood. I literally just got from vacation last night and that is always a fear of mine, going downstairs and seeing it flooded! I hope insurance takes care of you.

Sorry to hear about the flood damage. That is the biggest fear of a lot of us on here.

Have you ever thought about a sub floor?

Hey Sonic!, good news is the damage isn't as bad as we thought it was. it was still a hell of a mess but we were able to save the carpet and only had to replace the extra thick padding that got wet, i lost the DVD shelf but i was planning on replacing it anyways. and we did not end up having to file with the insurance (thank god) The damn condenser pump got clogged and over flowed slowly all week before we found it. all is cleaned up but we are still waiting to replace the trim that damaged. but the carpet is back down and we have been using the room again.

If i had my choice i would have gone with a sub floor, but with the drop ceiling in the theater room i figured it was going to be make the ceiling to short if i put a sub floor in. plus the pipes from the air conditioner are run in the ceiling twards the back of the theater room, which made me cancel my plans of using a projector for the room, thats why we went with the 73 inch Mitsubishi DLP instead. I already told my wife our next house i will have a "100% built from the ground up to my specs the way I want dedicated theater room". LOL

3 steps forward and 6 steps back have been the dance we have done the entire way with this theater room but it makes it that much more enjoyable
