Post Your Results II
The other thread was closed for obvious reasons. Let's try to keep this one clean with only posts of results here. I know that I enjoy seeing pictures of other peoples' setups, and I'm sure many others do too, but if that's not reason enough to start a new thread for it, may this one be closed too.

Someone asked for a video sample of video games on my setup, so I made another video. I had to encode this one to Windows Media because the original file was 12GB (it's from a MiniDV camcorder), and the MPEG1 was 45MB. The space I'm using is owned by my girlfriend, and I don't want to waste her bandwidth unless it's people visiting her site. The sample is available at:

The video sample for a projection of Ghost World is available at:

Picture samples are available at:
Look in the DIY Home Theatre folder.

Many thanks to my girlfriend, for letting me use her webspace.

Any recommendations on how I can simulate a better contrast ratio would be great. I usually don't play video games on the thing because when something is bright/white in a game, it's virtually invisible onscreen.

Keep posting the results! ;)

Comment: I personally like this idea. This time lets make it work. If I find any post I feel is not on topic and not worthy, it will be deleted. Start a new thread and post your comments there. I'm also going to sticky this thread. Lets go guys. :D
