It doesn't look exactly like this now, and the carpet was moved away when the photo was taken, the DSP33's at the back are (of course) not visible - but it's true enough to show:

The two cats love the 5500HC - to sleep, particularly with the silk carpet on top.

One way to do it is:

have access to one of the many servers that allow hotlinking - there are plenty around. Say "servername" is the mane of the server.
You must then upload your picture to a known location - e.g. "pathname" on that server (as in "/photos/mygallery/"). You can also make a smaller picture using photoediting software - to use as an icon. Let's say "picname" is the name of the photo (as in "picture.jpg") and iconname the name of the icon (as in "icon.jpg").

You can then use the following code:

To hotlink an image :

PLEASE IGNORE THE # CHARACTER WHERE IT APPEARS AND DO NOT WRITE IT - it's there just to let people see the code, otherwise the code would be interpreted and you'll end up seeing the small red cross smile !!!

To display an icon that will link to the full scale image (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) :

[#URL=http://servername/pathname/picturename] [#IMG]http://servername/pathname/icon.jpg[#/IMG][#/URL]

PLEASE IGNORE THE # CHARACTER WHERE IT APPEARS AND DO NOT WRITE IT - it's there just to let people see hte code, otherwise the code would be interpreted and you'll end up seeing the small red cross smile !!!

Hope this helps.

Detailed example:

Say we have an image at:
And the representative icon would be:

The key fact here is that the service allows hotlinking - that is direct display of an image in a remote context.

the code to display an icon linking to the image would then be:


Of course the #'s are there just for visibility of the code. I will now rewrite the above stuff with all #'s ommited:

There it is.

some image server will provide database access to the pictures - usually they will also show the picture codes to use in order to embed or hotlink.

Regarding the AVS stuff, by right clicking the desired images and selecting "Properties" we can see the respective static full path. For the first link in Simon's post these are:
for the biggest image and
for the icon

also the displayed page url would be:

The above data make the following presentations possible:

1. [#img][#/img]
which rewritten without #'s show as:

Now this is big and with more pics it will get slower to load as it grows. So it's perhaps better to use icon links like in:

which rewritten without the #'s shows:

Or you can link directly to the AVS page using the icon link as in:


removing all the above #'s that'll look like this and link to the desired page:

which is perhaps the best way to do it.

All those knowledgeable about these matters will probaly excuse me for taking up some space, I do hope this will help and encourage most to show here their rigs smile .

I am going to try to post some pictures of my set up. The room is a dedicated theater room built back in 1997 as a stand alone addition to the main house. It has housed Meridian components since 2001.

Keep in mind my room is more of a laboratory than a show palace, so it isn't as lovely as some of the other rooms wink

This is the front of the room with the Fontaine IIs in place, screen up:

The same shot, with the Screen Research screen lowered. Below about 1kHz, the screen is practically non-existent to the driver. I'm willing to make the slight trade with the bottom of the screen not being below both drivers for having the screen at the proper viewing height.

The DSP5200s, with the screen down. I've covered the display of the center DSP5200 (it isn't the master loudpspeaker) with gaffer's tape so that it doesn't shine back through the acoustically transparent screen.

And with the screen down once more. I never did put the driver covers back on the Front and Surround L/Rs after tightening the drivers down wink

Here's an equipment rack shot (it's in the back of the room) from about a year ago.
