    I'm thinking "Thank God it's over".

    On Monday last, I removed everything from my lounge room so I could clean the carpet.....sounds boring doesn't it.
    That meant stripping down my Home Theater setup ......It had to be done, I live in central Sydney, and the pollution from cars [fine black grit] builds up on everything, as I leave my balcony door open.
    Took me a day to strip it down, and clean the carpet.....then crashed out, carpet now clean.

    Next day started rethinking how to improve my lounge room [so it looks neater re cabling ]
    Decided on getting some conduit, and running the cables for the 4 surround speakers + the HDMI cable to the newly fixed Projector....went to the hardware store and bought what I thought I needed.
    Mucho Mucho swearing, and nearly weeping in frustration of a plan, just not happening.....let it sit and went and bought a couple of bottles of wine

    ARGH! Next day, Pissing down raining, can't cycle to the hardware shop in this.....a few hours later, no rain, YaH !, go to hardware shop, get what's needed, then Wammo, conduit up a room cabling looking a damm site neater.

    After another several hours labeling all the input & output ends of each cable [If building a complex system, you have to do this] and, putting masking tape on the power board, writing what plug goes where, I was ready to wire up ...

    This would be around the 6th rebuild of my system......I've learn't a LOT about what works and what doesn't, RE PS 2, 3 and 4, you need to have utilize the optional AUDIO OUT, PS 2 & 4 use Optical, PS3 uses Analog when wiring into a HT Surround amp.

    WHY ?, well some games like ROCKSMITH don't track well via HDMI, but will if using a different audio output, So I use a optional Analog for the PS3 and optional Optical for the PS4....works well, if still a PITA to wire up.

    So, 4 days after I cleaned my carpet I have finally finished putting it all back together, it looks so neat, I'm glad I didn't give up on the project....I think having to wire 6 components to use the internet added to the frustration [ I have thick concrete walls, WiFi just fails for me between rooms ] so I had to use Ethernet cables.

    Yamaha Surround amp.
    Inputs [5] : Laptop - HDMI, PS4- HDMI + Optical[dual audio inputs], PS3- HDMI + Analog[Dual audio inputs], PSTV - HDMI, PS2 - Component + Optical Audio, DVR- HDMI
    Outputs: [2] Sony TV, Sony Projector.
    3 Powerboards with 14 pieces of gear plugged in.
    Ethernet all cabled [6]: Laptop, TV, Surround Amp [For Internet Radio + Network ], PS4, PS3, DVR

    You can hardly see a cable anywhere.....Mission accomplished ....feeling very happy about the end result......but F*&K it was a frustrating thing to do.
    I'll edit and post a photo when I can.

    Here a few pictures
    First is of the lounge room showing usual day time setup......I removed the center channel and subwoofer as they were overkill, as the big Harbeth SHL5's were doing a better job of it without them, you can see the projector sitting on the wall shelf on the left, along with the B&W floor standers and near ceiling mounted.

    Last one is with WO 2048 being projected on a 2m across screen, courtesy of the PSTV hack.

    I accidentally imported an ImpulseTracker song into Audacity. And it worked.
    WHEN DID THEY ADD THIS FEATURE?!

    Life is short, life is unpredictable. Tell people how you feel, live every day to its fullest potential, life is too short... I've said similar before, but every now and then things happen that make you take another look at life and take stock of it. Just dont waste your time here.
