^ That's pretty funny. But I guess it makes the keyboard easy to carry if it needs to be transported often.

Here are some complete pictures with a iPhone for size comparison. I'm really happy with the size of the box. It looks great in my entertainment stand.

Since I recently took pictures of my apartment (mom wanted to see :rolleyes:), figured I'd delurk and share. I'm a broke-ass grad student, so I've put everything together slowly and from sales/used/b-stock.

Living room:

Mac Mini 1.66Ghz CD, 1GB, 60GB, OS X 10.5.8 running Plex, controlled by an Apple remote with a Logitech k400 as backup/for browsing.
Hooked into an Onkyo HTS790 w/7.1 (HTIB that was a pretty good deal) and a Westinghouse 32" (the "eco" model that I nabbed for cheap on black friday a couple of years ago).

Bedroom:

Mac Mini 2.4Ghz C2D, 4GB, 320GB, OS X 10.7.5 running Plex, controlled by an Apple remote with a Logitech diNovo mini as backup.
Hooked into Dell 2005fpw, and a Cambridge Soundworks sub that's driving a couple of cheap old Advents.

Here's the server they draw from:

18TB system running SuSE in the office. I just use SAMBA and Plex media server on the Mac minis to keep everything browsable.

Installed additional ceiling hooks for the screen so we can use the fireplace again. This shot provides better portrayal of the color than my last one.



I still need to work on conduit. but the Mrs was delightfully surprised when she came home from work

FLECOM that is beautiful.
thanks, I have actually cleaned up the cables a bit more so you cant see those going between the shelves as you can in the photo...

Nice Martin Logan's :)

Tough act to follow with ArtX38 post but here goes.









And the 18TB of NAS storage


I'll probably put in some killer 7.1 sound system over the summer but for now I'm just cruising along without.

Well, my setup isn't as nice as some I've seen on here, this is what I have.

Living Room


Nerve Center (In the Office)


HTPC Specs:
Intel Celeron G530
ASRock H61M/U3S3 Motherboard
HIS Radeon HD 7770
4GB Corsair DDR3 1600
WD Green 750GB (DVR/OS)
WD Black 200GB (Games)
ASUS Blu-Ray Drive
Corsair CX430 PSU
Hauppauge HVR-2250
Silverstone GD05B Case
Logitech K400 Keyboard/Mouse
Rosewill RHRC-11001 Remote

Other Components:
Toshiba 50" LED-LCD TV
Onkyo HT-R390 Receiver
Xbox 360 S
Slim PS3
ASUS RT-N66U Router
2 TB Data Share via Router
Silicondust HDHomeRun Prime Network TV Tuner

The idea behind the component selection for the HTPC was to give it enough power for HTPC duties as well as gaming while keeping power draw to a minimum. Believe it or not the G530 handles everything I throw at it very well. Also, sorry about the picture quality, but the Galaxy Nexus has a terrible camera.

I'll post the pictures of the actual setup when I get them imported, but for now I've got this; Raspberry PI Model B, OC'd to 'Fast' setting. I had a buddy at work, who's our product photographer, take this today. The case we, another coworker and I, milled at work. The bottom is a glossy plastic and the top is clear acrylic, held together by some hex screws. :D

Intel NUC running XBMC


Runs Windows 8 (for fast booting), with XBMC as the front end. I do all the controlling of the HTPC using the remote that came with my TV (using a PulseEight USB CEC adapter)

The box itself is an Intel NUC DC3217IYE, mounted to the back of my TV.


Windows 8 (script bypasses metro)


XBMC, with Aeon NOX skin.

Those NUC's are pretty freaking sweet!

I just assembled 10 of them for a bunch of HDTV "monitoring" screens at my new office. :D

They handle multimedia pretty well.
