    Pioneer Elite VSX LX104 Reviews?

    Hi All, It's been some time since I've posted anything to the forum due to business with work and family issues. Now retired, it's great to be back! I still have my Home Theater Forum plaque in my home theater downstairs. I'm replacing my old Integra DTR 7.8[now not working properly] and...

    IR2BT: Take Control of the PS3

    Thanks Robert. I will check this forum out. It looks like it will be some time before I can get one anyway. Where do you place your IR2BT device for best performance? How does it work for you? How do you charge it? Thanks again, Mitch

    IR2BT: Take Control of the PS3

    Robert, Thanks for the great review. This does indeed look like a winner. I have the Harmony 880 Remote. How exactly do you set this device up to work with the Harmony and the PS3? I'm not a real "techie", so please tell me step by step if you don't mind. Thanks, Mitch

    Bitstream and LPCM Confusion with the PS3

    Hi All, Maybe someone can once and for all easily explain to me what my correct optimum sound settings should be with my PS3. My system consists of the PS3 [just upgraded to 2.2 firmware], Integra 7.8 AVR, and Sony 46" LCD Bravia widescreen all connected via HDMI. I have a 5.1 system with...

    Using both inputs on subs.

    Hi All, I am now using two subs in my home theater system; the infamous and all powerful SVS PB12/Plus 2 and my older sub, the very accurate and beautfiful Velodyne HGS-15. The system sounds great with the two subs. It really fills in the home theater room in my finished basement. Being a...

    PS3 5 Free Blu-Ray Discs

    Hi All, I purchased my PS3 80 Gig on January 4th and of course, I'm still waiting for my 5 free Blu-Rays. Unfortunately, I have misplaced the documents that I submited to the fullfillment company. Does anyone have the toll free number for this company so that I can contact them to find out...

    Dual Subs advice.

    Hi All, I'm thoroughly enjoying my new SVS PB12/Plus 2 in my home theater as it is a killer sub and integrates well with my Snell 5.1 speaker array. Before I bought the SVS, I was using a Velodyne HGS 15 Sub, which is certainly no slouch, but cannot compare with the SVS for earth shaking...

    PS3 Sounds compressed through Fiberoptic-out.

    Man, Where are these other audio settings on the PS3? I have an Integra 7.8 and a Sony 46" HDTV all hooked up via HDMI. What are the best settings for optimum sound and where are they? Thanks, Mitch

    PS3 Audio settings.

    Hi All, I'm in the process of setting up my PS3 to use as a Blu-Ray player [my son uses it for games] in my home theater. I have it hooked up via HDMI to my Integra DTR 7.8 and my Sony 46" Bravia HDTV [HDMI all around]. The Integra is capable of processing all of the newer hi-def sound...

    PS3 and the Harmony 880 Remote.

    Jamey, You are partly correct about the Harmony 880 not controlling the PS3. There is an IR remote available from a company called Nyko which comes with a USB dongle that fits into one of the PS3's USB ports. When you insert this USB dongle into the PS3, you can then control the PS3 with...

    PS3 and the Harmony 880 Remote.

    Hi All, I just purchased the PS3 [my son uses it for the games and I'm using it for the Blu-Ray player]. Pretty good timing anyway considering the recent announcements, although I also own the Toshiba A2 HD DVD and still love it for HD DVD's and the upscaling of SD DVD's. So now I'm format...

    New PS3-How do I connect to wireless network.

    Thanks for the reply. I simply had to add the MAC # from the PS3 into my D-Link web site since I use MAC filtering. Now it works like a charm! As soon as I did that, the PS3 got online immediately and it did it's thing. Now, my new issue is to get my Harmony 880 Universal Remote to work...
