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?

Went there but didn't really see nothing with doors.

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?
