Just joined this forum so thought I'd post some pictures here. I live up the coast 20 miles northeast of Stockholm, Sweden; fortunately my house is on the top of a ridge so I have an excellent unobstructed view of the horizon.

I use a Toroidal 90 with four Maximum quad LNBs for the Thor, Sirius, Astra 1 and Hotbird satellites; this feeds a Topfield TF6000PVR receiver.
For Sky and Sky HD from Astra 2 (28.2E) I use a Triax 1.1m dish with an MTI LNB, feeding the Thomson SkyHD digibox.
There's also a cheap mail order UHF antenna for terrestrial digital TV which feeds a PC TV card.

My equipment downstairs consists of the 2 sat receivers mentioned above plus a HTPC running Windows Vista Media Center with a Hauppauge TV card. An Xbox 360 handles the occasional gaming session with my son.

A Pioneer VSX-2016 receiver handles all audio and video switching. The Xbox and the Topfield are connected via component video, the HTPC and Sky reciver via HDMI. The receiver sends its video output via HDMI to a Panasonic PT-AX100 projector, which shoots to an Invideo 83-inch framed screen.

A Logitech Harmony 885 remote control flawlessly controls all these devices (great piece of kit).

The HTPC serves as a DVD player, photo and video library as well as a streaming music server for a Squeezebox player upstairs in the kitchen. The HTPC has a small 7" Xenarc touch screen monitor connected to it so I don't have to fire up the projector when just playing music or doing maintenance.

Comments/improvement suggestions welcome!
