I actually power down my DVR when watching movies so I don't have to hear that damn HDD.
Ok.. well each to his own I guess. You must really have a nice setup with all those strict standards of yours
As mentioned unless this guy is completely and utterly oblivious to gaming, I'd go with the PS3 simply because you get a gaming console of the future for the same price. Then if you decide to go total gung-ho on hifi you can always buy a highend bluray player and use the PS3 as secondary. That's just in my opinion
