  1. Thanks Jim! Cabinets are cheap IKEAs from BESTA range http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80102151/ with glass window doors to which I attached some smoked auto film. The back of the cabinets was removed and they were mounted about 1/2 inch away from the wall for ventilation. I used some heavy duty shelf brackets which hold the cabinets from the inside creating the "floating" illusion. Sub is in the room corner, right of the plant and not showing in the picture. Cable runs underneath the skirting board.

Wires are behind the plasterboard (recent redecoration). For controlling them, I used a IR controller for RGB strips which basically has 3 dimmers into one unit. Since my LEDs are all white, I used each channel for different lighting segments. The IR RGB controller is also a cheap on ebay, about £6-7 and comes with a 44 button (I know) remote control which allows to set and memorise

That is until I found out about Flirc and eskro's enthusiasm made me order one. So here it is my little retreat corner. XBMC box is a i3 530 CPU on some ASUS main board with 2GB ram and a 32G SSD running Xbmc Live in Linux. For audio and video I use a passively cooled Zotac GT210. Box is a standard and cheap mATX case
  4. I've only came across this thread after I finished setting it all up but I would like to add my findings that worked for me best with scrolling / auto repeat and low latency repeated key presses (pressing an arrow key repeatedly) (after testing 5 different remotes I had laying around). My universal remote is Harmony 700 which is basically pretty much the same as 650 / 600. The remote that I cloned successfully was the SKYPlus SKY-HD Box (profile in Logitech's database). I recently recycled the satellite received but kept the remote. I used it to first program FLIRC with it and then try t
