    iPod docks?

    Does anyone know of an iPod dock that allows remote control and hooks to any receiver? It's a tall order, I know. I was hoping to find one that hooks to a receiver via RCA plugs or the mini audio plug. I'm using a regular audio mini plug-to-rca cable but I would really like to change songs...

    stupid question

    My av gear is in a closet away from the TV and the only thing I could afford to run in wall was component. A tube wasn't possible either. Don't get me wrong, everything looks great through component but I thought I'd ask since I have the 1080p JVC. I just bought the HDDVD addon for my Xbox 360...

    over air antenna?

    Thanks guys. My JVC does indeed have a tuner built in. I bought an indoor powered antenna and it just gets regular channels. I'll go get a roof mount model today to see if I can get HD. Apparantly, with that website John Rice linked, I need one with a yellow color code. We'll see

    over air antenna?

    Hi guys. I just got a new 56" JVC HDILA 1080p set yesterday and since I don't have cable, I wanted to try one of those HD antennas to pick up local HD channels. Do these work well? Which one would you recommend? Thanks

    DVD suggestions to highlight surround sound

    Bad boys 2- the street fire fight scene right before the big rig car chase. War of the worlds (cruise version) The initial lightning strikes will scare the crap out of you if you have a strong system! oh, and that Eagles DTS DVD someone mentioned sounds beautiful

    RG6 or 59?

    Well, my RG 59's have been giving me a hard time with finding connectors. I had to go to a local Home Theater store to get RCA connectors that fit right!

    Connector quality...

    Does it make THAT huge of a difference using expensive RCA connectors over cheaper ones? I'm looking for some for my component cables. They will be behind wall plates and not visible. Does it matter if I buy some average ones from Radio shack? I wanted to order some from parts express but it...
