Thanks for sharing.

Really nice RACK!....Come on....you know someone was going to say something like that eventually. No really, you have a great setup. If you don't mind, could you list your equipment. I see the switch at top, wireless router, power conditioner...looks like 2 HK processors/recievers....then I don't know what....looks like a Wii, and at the bottom, your HTPC/media server.

Just curious on your distribution.

In the rack I have:

network switch
wireless router
NAS
4x2 HDMI switch
VGA -> cat5 8 port hub
power supply with digital voltage meter, amperage, etc
2 HK AVR630 processor/recievers
HTPC 1
pull-out keyboard/mouse/monitor
PS3
Wii
HTPC 2
12 channel amplifier

In regards to distribution:
Each of the touchscreens video signal going over cat5 from the hub, with the exception of one which has a separate video signal from the other HTPC. In that case I use a Cat5-KVM. Two of the touchscreens are RS-232, I use a simple unpowered rs232-> cat5 cable. The other two touchscreens are USB interface. I have one powered USB-cat5 (2.0) and one inline powered usb-cat5 extender (1.0).

rs232 control, all over cat5:
AVR630 #1
AVR630 #2
LG plasma
Optoma Projector
HDMI 4x2 switch

Video:
720p split in two rooms, HDMI

Audio
2 5.1 zones of audio
5 zones of stereo in-ceiling or bookshelf speakers (powered by 12 channel amp). each zone currently controlled with manual wall volume controls. Soon to be replaced with XL. I have the hardware I just need to update my skin.

LED lights:
share the 12v power supply I use for my CCTV cameras
door mounted magnetic switched (3 closets)

CCTV cameras:
BNC video and power over 1 cat5
4 various outdoor cameras
4 single channel IP servers

Each room of the house has VGA, rs232, data, phone, and coax ports. In the basement I have a sub-panel where I store the modem for the house, phone switches, cable distribution, and a cat5 patch panel for flexibility which ties the rack to the house distribution.

That is some sweet setup getting out of the closet there. Been slowly gathering 19" rack mountable equibment myself, to do something as professional someday... Anyways couldnt be without noticing PS3 phatty there, so does that mean i can frag your ass on killzone someday or is it purely for blu-ray movies?

Thank you, its a work in progress and it didn't happen overnight.

You would absolutely frag my ass in killzone! I suck. I use it for both equally and very little. I enjoy the PS3 but I have a difficult time making opportunities for it with all of my other hobbies.
