How do you watch TV?

I have a couple of different setups for watching my favorite shows...
  • In my basement I have a 11' projection screen (just a Silverscreen painted wall), Optoma HD60 projector, and Dune Prime 3.0.
  • Upstairs I have an older Mitsubishi 48" widescreen TV and Dune Lite 53D.
  • When I'm watching TV in bed or on the toilet :) I use AirVideo on my iPhone.
  • When I'm working (I work from home), I put TV on my second monitor and just let it play on shows that don't require a lot of attention, like Sons of Guns, Man v Wild, Deadliest Catch, Top Shot, etc.
How about you?

32" Vizio 3D TV wall mounted in living (very small room) with full media center
22" LCD HP monitor wall mounted in bedroom
22" LED Vizio wall mounted in sons room
Android 2.3 HD2 phone

I have a tiny apartment so these all look huge LOL

BTW, quick 3D tip. If you buy a passive 3D TV (and who doesn't anymore) you can use the same glasses you get at the theater instead of buying the ones at the store.

My HD60 is unfortunately not 3D ready. The HD65 is. Had I waited 5 months I would have been able to get the HD65 and it would have been the exact same price as my HD60. :( Anyone want to do a swap of a HD60 + $ for a HD65? :)

58" Panasonic Plasma in the living room with TiVos and the 360 as an extender for Media Center.

The bedroom is currently HD less until I decide what size and model I want to upgrade to.
