Looks good, but just a couple suggestions:
-It's hard to tell from the pix, but try to get your center channel more towards the front of the TV and angled at the seats. Maybe you could put it on the shelf below the TV and angle it up. You will notice an immediate improvement in dialog and action.

- Try to pull the rear speakers farther away from the seats and angle them more towards each other. This will give better imaging and a diffuse, ambient effect.

baller99: There's a site called AVforums which they talk about eveything about home audio/video, there 's a member who hooks it up and does it for fellow members..here's the link...http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=538807 or if you want a custom intro you can go here...www.customintros.com/avsforum, Im dealing with them now to setup a unique custom intro for me which will include my image I currently have with 5.1 surround running.

europass/Jstar: I got the lights from www.cyron.com, speak to Al cool guy over there! The lights has its own control box which is small and power supply which gets connected to an AC outlet. The way I have it is plugged into the back of my HD box so everytime i turn it on the lights come up as well.

Whats up james, Yeah i have the same hook up and Panasonic , when I bought my tv a few montha ago I didnt know my friend worked there till after I bought it but i got my surround and hd dvd player from him with his discount.

Is this what you got?
http://cyron.com/Merchant2/merchant....tegory_Code=HT
Does it change colors randomly or is it actually "mood" changing w/ the program of the tv?
