    That is a fantastic install!

    And I might add, as a professional tile man, the tile job is awesome too.

    Thanks!  That means a lot!  I’m not a tile man, I’m a Journeyman Plumber (slash computer nerdCool)…  But I’ve been in the Industry over 30 years so I’ve seen and done most everything.

    Here I did everything from the plumbing, wiring, lighting, framing, wallboard, masonry, HVAC ductwork & registers, exhaust fan, painting, finish carpentry, and of course, the tile… I was happy with how it all turned out.  More importantly, Mrs. Sheen was happy too… Tongue out

    looks great, nice build.  New construction is definitely the way to do it.

     

    with a network tuner like HDhomerun or ceton with network sharing you could even have live TV 😀 which would be great.

    Again I’m all for it and would love to have one myself.

    No it is the code. They don’t allow any electical outlet (irregardless of GFI) within so many feet for fear that someone could drop an electrical device into the water such as a hair dryer. My wife is a realtor and I asked her and she confirmed it. She has seen it a few times on some homes. The inspector told her that this code is out of date with today’s GFI’s but they have to write it up until the code is changed.

    It’s a television with it’s own ATSC tuner, so we have live TV – OTA anyway.  And I agree, there’s more we could do with it – But…  There’s plenty of content there already and even though the whirlpool bath is comfy, it’s NOT a Lazyboy!

    We have two other HTPC’s (well, three…) and an XBox 360 (extender) set up in our house and of course everything networked. 

    Mrs. Sheen has Win7 Home Prem. now with 3 ATSC tuners and an ATI DCT for recording Digital Cable (connected to her Mits 1080i CRT RPTV). 

    I’m still running my trusty 64-bit Vista Ultimate rig with 2 ATSC tuners (connected to a Mits 1080p projector). 

    The server has 3GB of storage – plenty of movies, videos, music, digital photos, and downloads – there’s more than enough stuff to hear and see…

    again it probably depends in where you live. i know where i live realtors arent electricians and most inspectors arent even correct on the code. Case and point just bought a new house and was told by my inspector something wasnt code only to find out it was.

     

    it is code here if you do it correctly.

     

    and thanks Micheal dont know GFI wouldnt come to me yesterday

    SWEET! I’m thinking of doing the same but most likely over near my Vanity because my jacuzzi also is my shower. I guess I could do it in wall though. I’ve seen that done. Here is a link to another site:

    Great Job!

    Thanks! 

    I wanted to “flat mount” this TV but the viewing angle while sitting/lying in the tub wouldn’t allow it. 

    Pretty interesting how that guy devised a tub/shower installation.  The glass to replace the tile & protect the TV was a great idea…

    Great! Job! on the project. It really turned out nice.

    I would love to tackle something like this.

     

     

    p.s. My Fusion HDTV5 Gold card is still humming along. 😉

    That’s awesome. I would have thought the high humdity could damage a TV.

    Well, here we are nearly three years later (daily showers, whirlpool use during the winter months) and the little bathroom “home theater” setup is still cranking.  I too am kind of surprised the condensation hasn’t had an effect on the TV.  But then, I’m in Phoenix…  Many of you probably have more humidity daily than we get in our little bath…

    Very nice job! Makes a much cheaper alternative to the Tile TV splash proof Tv’s.

    That’s a nice feature to add to the bathroom, and cheaper than going for a splashproof ‘Tile TV’ type product.
