    Yahoo Widget Sirius Player

    Is anyone else as happy as I am with the Yahoo Widget Sirius Player? It is worlds better than the on-line player at Sirius.com and the guy who makes it is constantly updating it. I would highly recommend it to everyone here.

    Sirius wins with Howard Stern

    "Sirius Wins with Howard Stern" From USA Today http://www.usatoday.com/news/opinion...rs-stern_x.htm I'm not a fan of Howard Stern, but I think the executives at Sirius satellite radio are shrewd businessmen. They might be paying Stern hundreds of millions of dollars over a five-year...

    Special Edition DVDs Aren't Special Anymore?

    I agree with the results of this poll. DVD special editions are nothing of the kind anymore. They are the standard now, and with new movies, it's really nothing special anymore. All the new movies are rushed to the market now that there is no chance for perspective in the creation of the extra...

    Just What Kind Of Movie is House of Wax?

    It was pointed out to me earlier this evening that the House of Wax poster has a very odd similarity to a particular type of adult film fetish, one apparently popularized in Japan and frequently discussed on Howard Stern. I'm trying not to get to graphic here, but you can see the poster here and...

    70mm Screening of 2001 at the Egyptian

    This time it's confirmed. A few months back there was a screening of 2001 in LA that many thought was going to be in 70mm, but it only turned out to be a 35mm print. Next month the film will be playing in 70mm six track at the Egyptian. You can read about it here...

    Band of Brothers Packaging Question

    I finally got "Band of Brothers" on DVD today. Although, I think the tin case is kind of cool looking, I was hoping for a proper box set inside ala "Sopranos". No suck luck. Was the tin packaging a limited edition? Were there any other forms of packaging available? I just hate the fact that I...

    My New X-Files Set Covers are Damaged, is there a Way to get Replacements from FOX?

    OK, I am pretty upset over this. I recently purchased the X-Files box sets using my Christmas bonus money and a full additional paycheck. I was a huge fan of the show, but just couldn’t fit these sets into my budget until recently. I felt that the sets were grossly overpriced (and still do), so...

    Turning off user prohibitions on the Sony DVP-NS715P?

    Is there a way I can turn off user prohibitions on the Sony DVP-NS715P DVD Player? Meaning I want to skip past forced trailers, FBI warning, change the audio, etc. Its really annoying that everytime I want to skip past a forced trailer I get "prohibited by disc". There must be a hack for...

    John Carpenter's They Live SE Coming to Region 1 Anytime Soon?

    The last thread on this subject was over a year ago. I don't want to have to buy an out of print copy of the old edition on eBay or buy a copy from another region (cause I can't play them). Is there any possibility that the SE of They Live could come to Region 1? I can't believe one of...

    Subwoofer Connection Question...

    Sorry if this rather basic question has been asked over and over, but the search feature is disabled and I really need an answer. I recently purchased a new Home Theater setup. I'm on a budget, so my setup is not top of the line, but still a very good mid-range setup. I went with the JBL...

    JBL vs. Yamaha Subwoofers

    I’m looking for a new subwoofer to go with my Yamaha HTR-5590. Right now it’s between the Yamaha YST-SW1500 and the JBL S120PII. I am leaning towards the JBL, but would like to hear some opinions. Anyone with either sub care to comment on them? Thanks.

    DVD to Receiver to TV Video Connection Question

    I purchased a new receiver this past weekend (Yamaha HTR-5590) and for the first time, I am going to hook up all of my video components through the receiver, then out to the TV via an S-VHS cable. My TV is a Toshiba 48” that is about six years old. There are no component inputs, just S-VHS...

    Comparisons between the recent James Bond set and the previous releases...

    I completed my Bond DVD collection last year, so I had no interest in the new Box set released by MGM. I was however curious; as many others were to see if there were any changes. First and foremost I wanted to see if the audio sync problem was fixed on "Licence To Kill". After reading...

    What is the best DVD Packaging out there?

    I need to buy a bunch of new DVD cases to replace some damaged cases, snappers, box sets, etc. I was wondering what the general favorite DVD case is. I personally like the Alpha style cases, but I don't really have anything against Amray cases. I want to go with one or the other though...

    "Can't Buy Me Love" P&S only?

    I caught this film on TBS last night and said to myself..."you know what, this is a movie I really want to own." So today, I headed to BestBuy and found a copy for just $9.99. However, the DVD was sadly "modified to fit your TV". I asked the salesperson to look it up for me and he said that this...

    Bad DVD picture on HD TVs

    A couple of friends have large 16x9 RP HD ready TVs and DVD pictures look pretty bad on them. Last night we were watching Blackhawk Down on this guy's huge Mitsubishi and it looked pretty bad. Now I'm not up on this HD business but I knew right off the bat he had his aspect settings wrong. So we...

    World's Best Sub?

    A couple of weeks ago at the Midwest Audio Fest (pretty much a horn speaker and tube amp fest) in Ohio I heard Bruce Edgar's Titan Horn system with his Seismic sub. This is a folded basshorn, a 35hz hyperbolic flare. It is a monster standing 72" tall by 32" wide and 24" deep. It uses an 18" PAS...

    Jurassic Park Box Set: Dolby Digital Only?

    I was waiting to purchase the first two Jurassic Park films until the DTS problem was cleared up with the first film and figured I would wait until a box set of all 3 was released. I am not interested in Dolby Digital discs of the first two films, but it doesn't seem like there is a DTS Box Set...
