You just need to take break from tweaking to fully appreciate the next step of tweaks.

Did you do anything regarding soundproofing when you built your room? I'm planning on building a small home theater in my basement, and I'm kind of in the same boat as you with both the acoustic treatment dilemma and soundproofing. In fact I'm at the point of being paralyzed from information overload, and as a result I haven't gotten very far at all on building my theater for fear of screwing it up.

Mode calculators can only give you an idea of what modes may be an issue. Real rooms, particularly those that are not rectangular, are much more complicated, so you really do need to measure to see exactly what your room is doing.

Even after measuring, you may decide that there are certain issues you can do nothing or very little about.

Hopefully this helps cut down on the information overload.

I can see in my future a similar thread in the not too distant future. Already scouting for new places. (i keep hoping i'll see one with a HT room already set up I can just push my gear into and be done... one can dream!)

I found this helpful in terms of basic setup points. Go to the end and there are hyper links to more detailed pages than the one I copies. Repeats much of Alan's but more info can't hurt, right? Oh, that's right, it does in fact hurt...

Anyone recomend Digital Video Essentials? I know it is more display driven, but doesn't it have test tones and the like?

I found DVE useful for tuning my display, but the audio section is not so useful.

He also decided to use a navigation system designed specifically for use through a stand alone player. I REALLY dosn't work with an HTPC.
