Oh hells yes! I just successfully hooked up (on the first try) surround sound in 2 rooms to a central AV receiver, including a 2 room Sonos sound system, TV, a Playstation, an HDMI in for my laptop, and did all of the audio cabling from raw cable my damn self. I still have to stow the components and tie down the cables, but....YAY!
*moment of self congratulations* +1200 geekitude points!
The only thing that doesn't work now (after nearly 3 days) is my cable. Thx Comcast. Without your failure, I would not have remembered that technology isn't perfect ;)
P.S. Please note the kick ass Captain Kirk chair and the Roomba in the lower right. Thank you very much for the extra nerd points.
