    Bluray player problems - replacement recommendations?

    My 4? year old Sony BDP-S550 has started having problems with freezing up during playback. Sometimes I can skip to the next chapter, other times not. Sometimes the timer keeps going and it will eventually resume playing, but other times my only option is to eject the disc and chapter skip to...

    What movie is this?

    Yes! A gold star for Walter!! You have alleviated my ongoing self-torment! And the title refers to the trap door used to access the racquetball court.

    What movie is this?

    While watching Inception, the scene in Cobb's home of the hallway lined with photos, I was reminded of a similar scene in another movie, but for the life of me, can't remember the name of it. I recall the hallway lined with photos, I think of the children. I recall an auto accident that happened...

    Speaker upgrade: sides or rears?

    Thanks for the advice, Jim & Al. I was assuming for 5.1 presentations that the sides and the rears get the same sounds -- is that correct? That's why I wasn't sure which would be more advantageous.

    Speaker upgrade: sides or rears?

    After upgrading from a 5.1 to a 7.1 system, and upgrading the front l/r speakers, I now have the opportunity to upgrade either the sides or the rears, but not both. Given that that the sides are rears are currently at about the same level of mediocrity, and realizing that there will be sonic...

    Track the Films You Watch (2009)

    Opinion: The demise of satellite radio

    I've always thought they should at least split it out into separate stations based on general eras/timeframes. I can only handle so much baroque and pre-baroque music before my head explodes. On the other hand, they hardly seem to care enough to provide one classical station, much less 5+.

    Opinion: The demise of satellite radio

    Funny you should mention her. I believe she's the one that when she started talking, I said to my SO "If they're paying her anything, she's overpaid"

    Opinion: The demise of satellite radio

    My SO has XM/Sirius in his car which we drive on weekends. I've mentioned before how I have little use for it since their classical selection has gone from bad to worse. And while there may be no commercials, it seems the amount of mind-numbing idiotic chatter has more than compensated. For...

    Chuck season 2

    Seems to me that crap shows tend to get renewed for decades, while quality programming never attracts an audience and is fortunate to last an entire season.
