    Google Chromecast with Google TV

    I ordered one from Best Buy on launch day and received it by that Saturday. It seems like a solid little device and I'm enjoying the new launcher more than anything else (on some other devices as well). There are, unfortunately, from a Home Theater perspective, some major apps with major...

    Hardware Review Silver Ticket WVS Acoustically Transparent Screen Review

    The WVS and WAB materials are only available in the Standard Fixed Frame (as reviewed) and Thin Fixed Frame. It looks like Elite makes a few acoustically transparent retractable models, including the Spectrum Electric AUHD line.

    BenQ Announces 4K HDR 3,000 Lumens Projector for 'Bright Environments'

    So I'm guessing a few members here might be really interested in this... BenQ is taking submissions for someone to review their latest projector: the TK800! They ask that you submit pictures of your room as the TK800 is intended for use in living rooms / media rooms where light will be present...

    Hardware Review Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote & Apps Review

    I've had some similar frustrations with hard buttons failing over time on various models.You are correct that Harmony Hub would allow you to install the app on two separate devices and stay in-sync with one another. That said, I personally think the Smart Control package with its additional...

    Hardware Review Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote & Apps Review

    It does control Bluetooth (only PS3 and Wii), but I wasn't able to test that feature.

    Hardware Review Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote & Apps Review

    Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote & Mobile Device Interface I’ve been a Logitech Harmony user for quite a while. For the last 7 years I’ve touted the ease of setup and use of the Harmony line to my friends, family, and anyone who would listen on most A/V related forums. My stance the whole...

    WTB: Bravo D1 or Oppo DVD player

    There are some 981HDs for sale over at the AVS forum classified section... not super cheap prices however. The new Toshiba XDE scaling player might be another worth looking at, as well as BluRay players from EOutlet Canada if you don't mind a killer deal on a refurb.

    WTB: Bravo D1 or Oppo DVD player

    The 4805 should be able to handle HDCP over DVI, so I would go with an Oppo or other solution and stay away from the Bravo.

    WTB: Bravo D1 or Oppo DVD player

    Unless you have a very specific application (Panasonic L300U projector or other non-HDCP DVI display) I would discourage against the Bravo D1 or D2.
