Title: Show us your setup
Post by: Abhinav on 04:54 PM - 01/16/08
This is a thread I made so we can all see each other's setups or rigs. Post a picture (preferably) or just describe it. I'll post mine once I can take a pic an upload it.

Plexxity - Sticky this if it gets popular.

This is from day 1, I have made other changes already - new mouse pad, went back to using my mx518 and I am no longer using the Ideazon fang kb. I am using the Ideazon zboard MERC keyboard, which is much much better. I originally had the merc, and I bought the fang as I wanted something smaller to use. However after using the fang I found the feel to be lackluster and overall kinda craptastic.

I'll take a picture of my entire set up including the 940w surround sound system, 46inch sony bravia xbr4 lcd tv along with the set up.

I'm using my computer desk for comfort and my monitor for convenience.  So much for my 47" Samsung =(

That's a nice setup, disinfertation. My setup is along the lines of that normally. But when I want to play on the 46" Bravio, I move the stuff over. Usually, I cba to do that so I just play on my lcd monitor.

Oh that is not my TV that is strictly used for my computer monitor and now that I am using an XIM it will also be used for my XBOX.  I did have my xbox hooked up to my TV at my 57" but I like this set up more.

Are you guys using a split dvi cable to run the same monitor off your pc and xbox 360 ? And are your the keyboard and mouse the same you use on the pc ? Can someone draw a diagram  lol ...  :o

I run HDMI from the 360 and PS3, DVI from the puter.

Most monitors these days have multiple inputs and the ability to select that input with an A/B type button.  I'm using a Samsung 226BW and have the xbox running into it via the VGA input and the pc running into it via the DVI input.  It's a simple matter of hitting the source/A/B button to choose one or the other.  No plugging/unplugging needed.  I also picked up a handy little cable made by XCM that allows you to switch between multiple types of outputs coming out of the xbox.  This allows me to pump the signal either out to my standard def tv in the living room, or the pc monitor.  It does reboot the xbox when you switch between outputs, but it's not a big deal.  This allows me to play games in the living room area (without the XFPS+XIM setup) such as Culdcept/etc. with my wife or switch back to the pc setup and play games with or without the XFPS+XIM.  And yes, you use the keyboard/mouse that is attached to the computer.  No need to unplug the keyboard/mouse from the computer and attach to the XFPS.  This allows you to have one keyboard/mouse setup for both machines.

Mines probably got to be the messiest set up, seeing as mines in my room in a small room at that. . .  Wish my set up looked as clean as all yours do. . .. I think it's time to do a Small room Revamp. . . .   :-\
