    WTB: Touchscreen remote

    Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels??

    There were no transfer-related issues to me when viewed on a 40X81/5109. The movie is a real gas, lots of fun to watch. Even stands up fairly well to repeated viewing. Since you've seen Snatch, you'll get a kick seeing some of the same actors in both similar and quite different roles in Lock...

    Your first home theater experience?

    40X81-Operation w/o Remote? Help

    Greetings. This weekend my daughter initiated a series of events whereby the remote for my TW40X81 died of severe impact related injuries. The immediate problem (besides no remote) is that it appears the remote is the only way picture size can be adjusted. I don't see any menu provisions for...
