The first episode aired on July 20 and featured lifestyle technology expert, Janna Robinson and her team of installers and contractors transforming Entourage star, Kevin Connolly's rarely used TV room and bar into a fully functional screening palace. The appointed media room features the latest cutting-edge home theater technology and furnishings including luxury raised seating, Crestron audio/video control, a 110-inch screen, HD projector and custom-made automatic blackout shades.

Each episode of Hollywood Hi-Tech chronicles Robinson's visits to a Hollywood star's home to give one room a technology makeover using state-of-the-art gear to completely transform the space. Crestron integrator, Roberts Home AV installed a Crestron CP2E processor to control the audio and video, providing Connolly with one-touch control of all entertainment sources including Blu-ray player, cable TV, Crestron IDOCV for Apple iPod and more from a TPS-6X touch screen. Connolly's theater also features a Crestron iLux Lighting Control System.

Hollywood Hi-Tech airs Wednesday nights on DIY Network at 9:30 p.m. ET.
