One FE/BE combo in the den, with a VGA connection to an LCD TV.
HDHR and FW STB sources. A generic home-theater remote (used all
the time) and a cheap IR keyboard (used to handle odd situations
now and then).

Dedicated FE in the living room, rarely used.

Occasional use of one of the machine room computers as a FE.

We no longer watch live TV or TV through the set-top box.

You can't defend freedom by getting rid of it.
