    Seeing as how my bedroom is both my living room and den, I'd have to say yes, though it is not a TV specifically, it is a computer monitor with a receiver hooked into one of the inputs.

    If I had my druthers I'd have a 100" LCD that is easily covered by a sliding solid wood panel (by remote control of course).

    The only thing that I think is silly is when people have a television set in a room but try to hide it, like they want visitors to think "wow, they don't watch television, they just like to sit in furniture that's all facing an armoire."

    Oh, and my parents never let me have a television set in my bedroom growing up, and I'll never forgive them for it.

    I don't think hiding it is silly. Electronics aren't particularly pretty to look at so having the option of hiding complicated equipment is refreshing. Pretending it isn't there would be lame. I'd fully intend on showing it off at some point.

    I wish I lived in all of my rooms. Sometimes I can't figure out why we have them. I use about 3 rooms on a normal basis.

    Cry me a river.

    TV in media room. Which is also living/dining room and den. Mainly used for DVDs.

    My television is not connected to any channels so I can ONLY watch DVDs or VHS, in fact I haven't watched television for a few year (about 4) do I get some white people cred?

    There is a TV in my living room as well as my family room, a small one in my kitchen, one in my room and my sons both have a TV in their rooms.

    Haha, sometimes. This shit is hilarious, especially Merlin's cowardice (as you can correctly see from that statement I do watch tv series, just not while they're being broadcast).

    You have a media room? Is the TV elevated on styrofoam cups from B&O?

    Recently, I had a construction crew come and lift my media room off of the foundation so that I could lay down some styrafoam cups and elevate the entire room. The difference is incredible.

    Some people claim that if the crew stands on foam cups when they're lifting your house, the difference is like day and night. Even your dog who is in another room can hear the difference.

    Are you mocking my stereo? I never said it was better than anyone else's. And they're not styrofoam cups. They're space age foam field insulators. I got them from my sanitation engineer.

    I hope your cups cost at least $30,000 a cup. I can hear the difference. It sounds like change falling out of a slot machine hitting the jackpot. I can smell the difference too. It smells like money burning.

    You guys are all amateurs though. I have found some studies online about the enormous difference made by wearing a tinfoil listening hat. Mine cost only $5000 because I made it myself out of special audiofoil. This stuff is intense. It is shiny on one side and matte on the other for extra audiophile pretensioning.

    I mock whatever is within range of my meager wit or has an applicable LOLcat. Everything else is too hard.

    A kindred spirit. Have you seen my post about the new "Democat" Obama LOLcat phenomenon in CE?

    That is clearly dependent upon your equipment.
