    The next live DVD from QUEEN will be....

    I wonder if any of these versions will be released in a hi-def format? Since the concert was shot on film I hope they choose to release this in hi def. That would get me interested in one of the formats at least.

    Anyone else still have the Pioneer SD-533HD5?

    I have the 533HD5 and its been going strong for years. I had it ISF'd about three years ago and it still looks great, especially on HD cable channels. I have not jumped into the hi res disc formats yet, but will once things get settled on a format and some of the high end companies start making...

    What was the First concert you ever went to?

    1977 Queen with special guest Thin Lizzy at the Richfield Coliseum. Best double bill show I have ever been to and it was my 1st. Queen was supporting A Day at the Races and Thin Lizzy was doing Live and Dangerous.

    Speaker Hum from Cable Ground Loop

    I connected all of my plugs from amp, receivers, subs to the same power strip and it solved my problem. Mine was caused by cable but the amp was on a different power strip than everything else and so plugging it into the main strip solved my problem.

    Queen+ Paul Rodgers announce 2006 USA tour

    Just want to echo the same comments after seeing the Pittsbugh and Cleveland shows on the 20th and 21st. It really was two great shows that brought back memories of their tours from 25+years ago. Attendance at both shows was really bad with only about 7,000 people total/each venue I would...

    Queen+ Paul Rodgers announce 2006 USA tour

    It really doesn't matter how you call it, Brian May and Roger Taylor will be playing Queen songs with a new singer and supporting band. They haven't been here in this capacity since 1982. I am looking forward to this show because I know it will be great. If you are really skeptical, pick up the...

    Yamaha RX-V2600

    Yamaha's have been incredibly reliable for me. I had an integrated amp from them bought in 1987 that still works today as well as a RX-V995 and RX-V3300 which are used in my everyday systems. They are very well made and given proper care and ventilation, will last a long time.

    Yamaha RX-V2600

    Robert, My apologies on the 4600 and the XM input. You are correct the 2600 only has that feature. I've corrected my inaccurate post. I am a big Yamaha fan and currently have the RX-V3300 and am considering the 4600.

    Yamaha RX-V2600

    Neither 2600 or 4600 have XM radio standard. The 2600 has the input for an optional $50 antenna that will allow XM radio to be received and displayed. Actually only the 2600 has that capability. The reason for getting the 4600 mainly is the inclusion of i-link inputs. This allows dvd-audio and...

    BIOS won't recognize new drive

    I did set the jumper seting on the Pioneer to cable select. It shipped with the jumper on master but I switched it to cable select because the Samsung cd-rw I replaced had it in that position and from what I understand Dell configures their drives in this manner. Since windows recognizes the...

    BIOS won't recognize new drive

    Dell use the Cable Select setting for both drives so I stayed consistant with that.

    BIOS won't recognize new drive

    I have a Dell 4700 that had a dual drive with dvd-rom on top and a cd-rw drive below it. Yesterday I swapped out the cd-rw drive for a Pioneer dvd-rw model 110. My problem is that BIOS does not see it and I get stopped at start-up by BIOS. If I F1 and continue its fine and windows definitely...
