    Possibly really stupid question about speaker wiring....

    Thanks, I confirmed with Jamo that what I was told was bunk...I do risk blowing the speaker, receiver or both. These are in wall and in ceiling. Good idea about the pulling the grill off using a wire of some sort. I think some of the problem may be the paint keeping it on. Maybe I'll exacto...

    Possibly really stupid question about speaker wiring....

    Hey all, So we moved into a new apt with speaker wiring already built into the walls by the last owner. And I have 2 questions... There is one speaker cable with a single red / single black that connects to 2 different speakers in the wall in the office. If I connect the red/black to the...

    Is there an HT receiver that passes video/audio while turned off?

    Hey all, Need some help. We bought a new place where the previous owner had buried cable from the "component cabinet area" to the wall mounted display. Unfortunately, for some reason, he (or his installer) chose to only run a DVI and a set of component cables to the TV. I guess he thought he'd...

    Kindle owners, need your help..

    Hello all, I have a parent who has vision problems and reading regular books are next to impossible for her for longer than 5 minutes at a time. I initially thought the Kindle would be a great idea due to it's variable text size. However, I read that the largest text size is only equivalent...

    American Idol - Season 7

    I don't know if it's my love of all things Beatles, but this was my most enjoyable week of AI overall since the show began. Sayesha - Wrong KEY, and had some doozies of missed notes. Chikezie - Holy cow that was good! He's got to stop raiding Carlton Banks' closet though. Ramiele - OK, it...

    Survivor: Fiji

    Best.....Finale.....ever...... Yau hit the nail on the head when he said pride was his downfall. I think he could have put on the full court press and convinced Dreamz to honor his word, but he just couldn't bring himself to consider he was wrong about Dreamz. I would have reminded Dreamz...

    Survivor: Fiji

    Don't forget that tribal council's usually last hours and we only see small snippets of that conversation. In that light, maybe Stacey's comments might have seemed innocuous. (I still think she's a moron) I agree that the second half of this season is some of the best on survivor. Yao is...

    Need Help/Question on speeding ticket Plea bargain

    Hey all, So, after 10+ years of spotless driving, I got a speeding ticket. I was cited for going 74 in a 50 on the Palisades Parkway in New Jersey. I'm a New York licensed driver. This would be a 4 point infraction. So I contacted a few law firms that all said they could plea bargain this...

    Showtime's "Dexter"

    I went out and bought the book as soon as the season ended and I was sorely disappointed. By no means is it bad, but I found that everything was better on the TV show. Not the least of which was the prose, especially Dexter's voiceovers. Also, as was previously mentioned, the show, (by...

    "Dog" Chapman arrested

    First off, let's be clear that I, and everyone else, all agree that rapists deserve everything coming to them.... That said, how would you react if Mexican (or Canadian, Nigerian or Swiss) nationals, came into our country under false pretenses, e.g. a tourist visa, kidnapped a person, (scum...
