    Using LG's Magic Remote with a Denon Receiver

    You should be able to control these functions via HDMI-CEC, just make sure you enable HDMI controls on the AVR and TV.

    Google Chromecast with Google TV

    It does. However occasionally, with my setup, it drops back to stereo (for hbomax, prime and netflix). Sometimes in stereo the sound is out of sync as well. I've been restarting to fix which seems to work. Not sure if it's the device or something about my setup.

    Sony Blu-ray remote overrides Sony TV remote

    That is likely a Bravia Sync with HDMI control "feature". The fix is to go into the HDMI settings on your TV and change the Device Control Keys. "None" is probably the best setting.

    No Sound to Receiver from Smart TV

    Not sure if this apples but does non app TV sound output to receiver? Make sure your TV sound is set to output to an external sound system.

    Favorite PS1 games

    Funny you should ask. We just pulled a box of PS1 and PS2 games down from our attic and I tried a couple of them in our "classic" PS3. Favorite PS1 game? Wipeout of course.

    Thoughts about iPad in a Windoze home/work environment?

    Why not just pick up another entry level laptop? Costs are about the same but a laptop (arguably) does more than an iPad and is (arguably?) more useful for college or work.

    Really Impressed with Linux

    I boot persistent Ubuntu and linux Mint from USB flash drives now and then just to play around. Nice in that you don't need to mess with your existing setup and can use these memory sticks on multiple computers (sort of). Some resources here: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/

    iPod touch (iTouch!) owners thread!

    1. A pictures tab will appear when you sync the ipod touch to iTunes. You can select photos there. 2. The internet connection is wifi which you set it up like any other wifi connection - you just need a wireless access point.

    MP3 Players: Recommendations?

    It's hard to beat the combination of ipod with itunes - so many models and very easy to use software to maintain content. You don't need to buy music from Apple, just add your mp3 files into itunes, sync, and you're good to go.

    Killzone 2

    I've been playing online. Mostly I suck, but online is really a blast and the game looks great with all of the fire/smoke/dust effects. I don't really play enough to reliably be available any particular time. I'll play maybe an hour or two every other day perhaps.

    Noby Noby Boy

    I got that silver trophy and I wasn't really trying. Must have been something I ate... Such a silly game.

    Noby Noby Boy

    It's a pretty weird game. I had a tough time keeping my elongated "boy" on some of the maps. That's half the fun I guess. Strange, goofy time waster...

    JBL studio series question

    I recently bought a pair of the all weather s36s. They sound the same as the indoor s36 (although they are off white color with different grills). Finally, I have all studio series (except for sub) s36 front and surround along with s-center. Sounds great to me!
