Our version of "Digital Joy" (www.digitaljoy.com). Powered in large part by Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. The Media Center is connected via DVI, the Xbox and Motorola HD Set-top box are connected via component-in. The Denon receiver manages AV switching, and audio control as well as Dolby Digital/DTS processing.
A single remote control manages the devices: a Logitech Harmony 688 with smart-state technology so it knows the on/off state of all the devices. A Microsoft Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse offer flawless control when used in PC-mode.
Not seen in this picture is the 100Mbit Ethernet connection going back to a wiring closet and 802.11 A/B/G home network. The Media Center stores all of our music for playback around the home.
Parents will note we have kid-proof straps on each of the bookshelves for our toddler son- these are easy to find online. While I wasn't able to find a protective screen for the Samsung TV, our son is good about not touching the TV with regular reminders ;)
