I have a large basement which needs to be more functional and updated. The space needs to be used as a family room and home office. Have any ideas?

A sectional will help with the seating situation. Put in a flat screen in place of the rear projector TV. That will be a good start.

The 'daylight' bulbs aren't helping.

I'd get some framed vintage travel posters or sports posters, etc. and hang all around the room. You've got some big walls and you need to unify the room. The small pictures are lost. Move the bookcase that's now near the TV to the spot under the picture next to the floor lamp in pic#3. Now center the TV on it's wall. Try pulling your chairs into more of a grouping. The two loungers are good where they are but the other two are just pushed up against the wall and serve no purpose. Bring them into a conversation group with the loungers. Maybe add a coffee table and some small end tables to set drinks or lamps on. I'd get 7 or 8 or 9 of these posters to brighten up the place and add some interest.

You should place some more of the small pictures around the rolltop desk and move the treadmill to a more out of the way place--how often do you use it anyway? Remove the vase from the roll-top or find something more interesting to put in the vase.
