Lounge Setup

Current setup as of today. Since the last photo I took, I sold the HDDVD player, packed the DVD recorder away, and now all there is is the TV, AV Receiver, PS3, Sky+HD box, and dad's old CD player.

    Surely the PS3 will play CDs, allowing you to throw out the old CD player?

    Lovely furniture. What can you control with the Logitech Remote?
  • William Hook PRO 6y

    Of course. The CD player is there purely because 1) my parents don't know how to operate it, and 2) it means I/them can play CDs without turning the TV on.

    Pretty much anything that uses an IR remote. The PS3, however, is Bluetooth-based so you need to get a 3rd party IR receiver for it to work.

    logitech have just released the PS3 harmony device, so you can now control the PS3 with your logitech remote (although seems to be US only at the moment).
  • William Hook PRO 6y

    I saw that. It's $60 though, which is silly. Unless it comes down in price, I'll stick to the PS3 remote for now. :p
  • Simon Gray 6y

    probably be around £35 in the UK if it gets released. i'll certainly get it as i want everything on the 1 remote :-)

    do you not find the sky box overheating a lot with the little airflow it has in your cabinet ?
  • William Hook PRO 6y

    Nope, it seems fine. No issues other then the occoasional crash or failed recording.
  • Simon Gray 6y

    the problem i am having right now is that my centre speaker blocks the IR port on the TV !

    I'm guessing you have a PS network account? Feel free to add me "Basshead13" if you fancy a game. :)
  • William Hook PRO 6y

    Yep, I'm WilliamTM. I'll add you sometime in the next day or so, if I'm on.

    Actually, I have two. My main one, for the UK, and another one for gaining access to the US store. ;D

    Brilliant. I'll have finished all my GCSE exams on tuesday. So expect much more of me online :) Do you play any call of duty games?
  • William Hook PRO 6y

    I mainly play Burnout Paradise and GTAIV online on the PS3. I do have CoD4, but on PC.
  • Simon Gray 6y

    i like the unit you have (presumably from Ikea)? i'm looking for a new lower one to replace mine and yours looks ideal. what is the product name of it if you don't mind me asking.
  • William Hook PRO 6y

    It is IKEA, but I honestly can't remember what it was called.
