    Does the ultimate DVR/DVDR exist?

    Many thanks. I think I will grab the basic $99 DirecTivo box for now since it has dual tuner capability. I will look into new options over the next 12 months!

    Does the ultimate DVR/DVDR exist?

    I am guessing by the silence, that my drem box does not exist. If anyone is aware of something like this, please let me know! Thanks, Graham Martin

    OK... Comcast in Maryland does not offer Fox Sports World. (Want my international soccer!) I am looking at options between Dish Network and Direct TV. I hope this is the right forum to ask such questions. I search for similar therads, but they seemed to be few and far between. Here is what I...

    Ok…ok new idea... Take the list and look at the match-ups. If the hero and the villains ranked at the same level fought, who would win? Here is my take: 1. Atticus Finch (in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD) vs Dr. Hannibal Lecter (in THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS) Finch, being a lawyer, gets a...

    I was hoping the review could contain a little more information. Oh well. :wink:

    Scaler needed for my Philips TV?

    I just found this thread that discusses the same issue. However, no results are posted and the user has indicated he does nto wish to receive emails. Anyone else with a 64pp9751 have ideas?

    Scaler needed for my Philips TV?

    I just got my first Prog Scan player and I had a question: I am using a Philips 64pp9751 (Link Removed) and a SONY DVP-NS715P player. (Soon to be returned as I just purchased a RP82) When I played LOTR in Progessive mode with componant hooks to my HD input jacks, I found that I could use TV...

    VSX-D811S with 6 Ohm Fronts?

    I was considering OneCall.com but I live 2 minutes from a Best Buy that carries them for about the same price one you factor shipping. iwill probably test out from best Buy since they have a 30 day return policy.

    Speaker wire length

    Yeah, I know the measurable difference is small, but I always do it as part of "best practices." I will have to swap some out one day and run a phase test. :-)

    VSX-D811S with 6 Ohm Fronts?

    Thanks for the extra info. It is a small room and I mostly watch movies. I try not to listen too loud, probably around 65-70db on the test tones. I iwll let you know how it goes.

    Speaker wire length

    Just make sure they are all the same length. If you have an odd configuration in the dorm, don't have one wire be 2 feet and the other be 14 feet. (Usually happens wehn you have to put your receiver closer to one speaker than the other!)

    VSX-D811S with 6 Ohm Fronts?

    How disappointing... I thought my search was over. Well, looks like I either need to get new speakers or get a different amp. Any suggestions on a 811 competitor that will handle 6 Ohm fronts?
