This looks like a very fun 'everything' room!!! Great clean setup, and I love you can play both types of pool (very envious of you for that). We'd love a game room some day (including ping-pong).

The couch is a great idea. We toyed around a bit also with HT chairs or a couch and decided we could fit more (or more like 'squeeze") people into a couch (got one that is 84" wide, but seating area of 67 inches).

Again, great job!!!
Thanks for the compliment. I do have a board that I can put on top of the pool table which then makes it a ping pong table and if I switch it upside down, it is an air hockey table. Although recently we haven't played either. Mostly pool.

yeah, the sofa wasn't on my list when I thought of the upgrade but hey, it works out in the end!

Hey, anytime my friend!

Any shots of your TV from the seating position? And how did those NAD AVR speaker settings work out for you?
I will have to take some pictures.. yes, the speaker settings work perfectly. I greatly appreciate your assistance. In terms of watching movies.. well, now it is just a matter of finding the time which is hard to come by..

Hi Osage, here are some snaps while going thru some channels.

Boy, does that look like a ridiculously sharp picture on that panel....nice! Thanks for snappin' the pics...

That table in front of your seating area doesn't distract you when watching films?

Glad the receiver settings worked out for you BTW! Does your system sound more "alive" with the settings I suggested?

Hi Osage,

The TV is above the poker area so when watching the tv, I don't notice the poker table. And if the lights are off and I am watching at night, the poker table is hidden so to speak.

yes, the settings are great. Funny thing thou on some channels, the vol goes up dramatically.. I have to reduce the vol settings but on other channels it is back to normal. I guess it is the way those channels are..

The system does sound alive. Very good. Thanks once again for the recommendations.

Glad I could be of assistance, my friend...

You use the receiver to watch TV as well? I mean, you run your cable's audio through it?

yes, I have one long hdmi cable that goes from the TV to the receiver.

From the receiver, I have hdmi going to the opp as well as the PS4.

Question.

On the TV, I see the below.

Sound - Speaker Settings - External Speakers

Digital Audio Out - Audio Format - Dolby Digital.

Should it be Dolby Digital? The options are -- PCM, Dolby Digital, DTS Neo 2:5

Are you listening to the TV through the TV speakers or through your AV unit?

This is what I am thinking...
External speakers would mean the audio is going straight to your speakers, and is not going to a AV unit.

The Digital Audio out is for your AV unit... If you are watching Cable HD channels I would set it to Dolby Digital as that is what most of the TV channels are.

Hi. Yes I hear everything from the in ceiling speakers. I control the vol via the receiver. I will leave it as is then. Thanks for the details.

Just to add, for the external speaker section..

On the tv, I see that you can pick external speaker or tv speaker..

Since I want my home theater speakers to come alive, I selected external speakers.
