    No, it's not distracting when watching movies because there is no light coming from the back of the TV screen. Hence, no reflection. Unless you have a light shined directly facing the mirror it does not bother me.

I had multiple power bars running from each area. Happened to me me a couple times that a breaker would pop but it was mainly while working on microwave oven which draw more power than most gears.

    Wow, I used to fix audio gear when I was in high school, on the A/V squad. Never blew a breaker in my current HT, but let's just say it's happened to me a couple of times also...

    I might try to sneak a pic from behind it. It is not easy moving all that gear to slide the rack out...

    Just imagine like 15 outlets sticking out the back of the tv stand, 3 power strips, a xbox 360 PS, Wii PS, a router, and a usb interfact - all lining the back of a TV stand about 4 ft tall.. lol

    On top of that - I am hiding EVERY wire, you can't see a single one from the front it and I get very low noise. All the power cables have in-line filters (the 2 ch rig) and on top of that the MIT Z Centers filters, and its power cables has dual filters...

    so VERY quiet noise floor after all of that.

    I will not install dedicated circuits in my room. Now when I move out - different story.

    Taking the time to do a neat hiding cable job is great. I hate cable clutters, some that looks like Xmas three. Let's face it, one spends good money and turn around making it look like a stak pile of gear in a cluttered test worshop. you know what I mean...

    I think your filters might also be helpfull and we have to realise that usually a small portion of the gear is used at once however, a few dedicated breakers is great when possible. Dedication for PJ, then one for A/V rack (depending on amount of gear involved) and making sure unrelated A/V gear is out of any gear cct path for example.

    I actually do picture the outlets, bars and all but I'd be very curious to see physical pics, should be interesting.

    Cheers!

    Trey -

    If your old setup is anything like the new one, then I am sure you have excellent wire management. However, I'd like to see a picture too! :)

    Yeah - I think I may have found a place... it is tempting to try to find one around October and close before November for that 8,000 cash back ---

    No hurry, Im not going to spend 100,000 to get 8,000 - thats silly!

    Well I am currently running...

    Wii Conroller Charger
    Camera Charger
    Laptop
    USB Hub
    Camera Uplink Cable
    Wireless mouse/keyboard transmitter
    USB Interface
    DVD Recorder
    HD DVD Player
    XBox 360
    Wii
    Router
    CD Player
    VCR
    Preamp
    Two Amps
    MIT Z Center
    Dish Network DVR Box
    TV

    All of that off of one outlet... pretty insane...

    Consider about 15 of those use a power cable - and all the cables associated with hooking all of that up - LOL

    And I dont even have a HT preamp and amps or other speakers ---- my cable situation would multiply VERY qickly...

    That's just the video/HT side of things.

    My 2 channel is very, very simple:
    CDP --> Amp --> Speakers (no sub).

    For some reason, the video side of things is always more complicated in my setups. Source switchers, receivers, projector/TV, etc. always seem to have more connections than everything else!!

    Just to report back...

    The cable wrappers Shawn gave me were exactly what I was looking for. I will post some before/after pics of the system with the cable wraps - it is a night and day difference!! Thanks!
