    PS3 Remote Problem

    Ok so committed a sin. I opened the PS3 remote and threw out the package. Problem is how do you get it to work? I'm sure you need to set it up to the system but i cant figure out how. Normally you just put batteries in a remote and the thing works...no such luck here with the blu ray. Joe

    Buying new 1080i TVs?

    Why does the picture get blocky sometimes?

    I have a new Samsung DLP http://www.samsung.com/Products/TV/D...S5688WXXAA.asp Sometimes on HD channels when the scenes are going fast the picture gets blocky. My tv claims to have a "new smooth engine" or something to prevent "screen door" appearance. Could this be because of my connection...
