I'll be adding a Samsung LN46D630 to my setup soon, will add pics when it gets here and I have everything set up.
I had troubles with the LG 47LK520 and ended up sending it back

TV : Sony KDL-46W3000
A/V receiver : Sony STR-DG 510

Here is some pics of my living room.
And a closer look.
From left to right :
- Internet provider box (with DVB-T tuner and Bluray disc)
- Audio/Video receiver
- Nintendo Wii (hide in the drawer)
- HTPC under A/V receiver
This 2 pics were taken in WAF mode
Now, in Cinema mode :
Unfortunalty, no more central speaker (low WAF).
Rear speakers are in wall speakers :
The half-wall behind TV is home-made and have multiple purposes :
- hide wires (ethernet, speakers, antenna, ...)
- hide network switch and surge protect device)
- hide LED light when watching movies

Loving the idea of the wall Mikebzh44! I always like setups where you can't see any of the cabling and this is a good way of hiding it.

I have been a long time lurker of these forums but have been using XBMC for about 2 years now. My sound set up compromises of Quad 11l2's at the front, a Quad L2 centre speaker and a pair of Quad lites at the rear. The sub is a BK XLS200 MK2, and the amp a Sony es 2400. The projector I use is an Optoma HD200X.
In the AV cabinet I have a HTPC with XBMC for film playback, a PS3, and in my bedroom a couple of HP microserver's with 10TB of storage each. In all 20TB of storage. I also have a Harmony One for control of everything.

Not exactly an extensive setup, but a nice compact one for a one bedroom flat (apartment to all you US folks)...
The hardware was moved from an older Aspire HTPC case I had into the Zalman HD-503 seen in this photo (bottom). The amp is an older Pioneer VSX-1014 which someone sold to me for £150, which isn't bad considering it was over £1000 new. The larger speakers are Pioneer CS-7070's which i've had for about 10 years. The Smaller speakers are Tannoy Mercury F1 Customs and a matching centre-speaker. No Subwoofer as I live on the 2nd floor, and don't want to annoy my neighbours. Besides, the CS-7070's pack a fair amount of bass on their own. Not setup in a "surround" configuration as far as positioning, because this flat is only rented, and I can't go drilling holes in the walls to hide cables, etc.
All my media is housed on a ReadyNAS Ultra 4, which has 4x Samsung F4EG HDD's in it, working out to about 5.4TB of storage. The NAS runs Sickbeard, CouchPotato, HeadPhones and SABnzbd+. Also have a MySQL database on the NAS for multi-room setup in the future. The HTPC runs W7-64bit, and is based on an old AthlonX2 4850e dual-core with a Sapphire Radeon 4600 for graphics. 4GB memory in total.
Other kit in the rack is a Panasonic EX95-VEBS Digibox / DVR / DVD player which I've used for transferring my old VHS tapes to DVD as well as watching TV (Had it region-unlocked prior to purchase). The Television is a 26" 2008 series Samsung LCD. I'm more a music person than a video person, so the small TV is plenty big enough for me.
The TV stand was a modular effort made of 6mm smoked / toughened glass panels. With the four tiers I had to buy to assemble it as seen here cost me £400.

Looks nice except for the black cord dangling from the projector. You could fish that through the wall or put a white wire mold over it.
