Very nice, good to see the attention paid to the acoustics of the room. Looks like you've got a little tidying to do with some wires though :)

Are you using a frontend for your HTPC?

Haha :) I plan to fish those wires through the back wall and through the outlets in the back.

No frontend, actually I just posted a massive thread on my HTPC here.

that room looks very nice. one thing that I would try...is moving your center channel as far forward as possible on that shelf...even if you have to slide the dvd player forward too. Being in between the two pieces of glass like that can cause some comb filtering that can affect the sound of that speaker.

Just a suggestion of something to try and if you don't like it you can move it back.

SQCherokee you're right - since those pics were taken i've gotten rid of the cable box and moved the DVD Player on top of the HTPC. Sounds better than before after tuning, dialogue is clear and has better presence. What I might try is moving it further forward and pushing the HTPC/Receiver back a bit.

Here is what it looks like now:
