For those of you that have their HT in their living room, what do you use for storage?
I'm looking for something that would hold 200/300 BluRays/DVDs with doors so they can be hidden, preferably a wooden cabinet (black or dark wood) to go with the rest of the living room and not crazy expensive. Any idea?

Bruno not a direct answer to your question but why not get a dvd/blue ray changer? i have a 300 or something sony dvd changer, i really like using it.. I did wind up making a database of the movies and their location in the changer... but that isn't a huge deal.

Depending on what you use for a player now.. I mainly use my BDP-83 but the changer is the best way to make a large collection easily accessible.. Short of putting it on a HTPC.

My wife grew up in Sweden. Most of our interior is IKEA. cool

I bought BESTÅ cabinets in black, with doors. You can design yours here:

Then check if your local store has them or can get them.

What if you have more than 300 dvd/blu-rays like I do. I guess you would use 2 of them?

I think Onkyo use to have a 300 disk changer that could be connected to other changers to expand the capacity... I don't remember how many could be connected...

But, wouldn't that only work for those that have digital copy available? Or, is there a way to rip even old dvd's and blu-rays?
