    Thanks Wayne, Ive managed to find the Michigan Cyber crimes unit's number and will try to get in touch with them to see if they can help. Would contacting the FBI office be a better option? It sure would be great if some of the members left some encouraging phone calls to him. He just doesnt...

    *** Official KING KONG Review Thread

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: The Polar Express - Two Disc Widescreen Edition (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED).

    Thanks for a great review, saw it the first time on dvd yesterday as i missed it out on the theaters. I had read a lot about the characters being too lifelike and creepy but after the initial few minutes i got over that. Only animation which seemed a little odd to me was the girl when she spoke...

    budget tv

    You get can a Panny 42 inch EDTV for around 1300 something from one of the good authorized retailers online. You may want to check that out. Nothing beats the beautiful picture quality of a plasma IMHO.

    The Downside to buying your first HD Widescreen TV...

    Adam, I recently got a plasma hdtv and the reception on even the standard def channels has been pretty good. I would recommend you asking your cable company to improve the signal and see if that helps. Do you use a settop box? If your unit has an option for cable card and your cable company...

    Hey Eric, I think you are spot on with the Visual apex thing and theres where ive been tending to go to.. The Panny you mentioned is pretty much what i think ill finalize, i may need to add the HDMI slot later on.. and thats within my budget as well. Really was hoping though that the Dell would...

    Opinons on Dell W4200

    Thanks Arthur, I have been reading up posts at AVS but i think i missed that one out. If this doesnt do then the new Panny 42" HD unit for almost same choice would be my choice. Only thing is that the Panny is an industrial model and the bells and whistles on this Dell looked better than that...

    Opinons on Dell W4200

    Has anyone had experience with this particular Dell? Would this be better than the Panasonics on market. There is decent pricing for this from Sams Club. The more i search the more i get confused :-D This one seems to have all the inputs as well as user friendliness than the Panny.. Here are...

    Looking for New TV, please advice

    The 42Px50 is another one i was looking at but from the reviews it seems the PHD7UY has better pQ than the former? Im not sure whether it has HDMI input or not(would check on that one) I could hook up the AVR but would prefer not to.. Also the stand seems to be the way to go if its gonna be that...

    Looking for New TV, please advice

    Mort, Firstly thanks for replying. I do have a bedroom HT but i havent hooked it up yet since i moved to the new place i am in right now. I probably wont hook it up either because the room would be too messy with all the wires(stay in an rented apt now so can afford to run wires inside the...

    DVE does not work so now what?

    I have DVE as well, and a SvS. I got very good advice from this forum and from SvS regarding this matter.DVE can be used to calibrate the sub as well, just calibrate your subwoofer 10dB hotter than the rest of the speakers because the LFE track is recorded that much off.Hope this helps. Daman

    Receiver suggestions

    You may want to add Marantz SR7500 as well. You can check out an older thread where i was in the same position as you are and had shortlisted the marantz,hk 635 and denon 3805.. ended up with the marantz. I also own a Yamaha 5790(RXV1400) and Marantz is much better than Yamaha in almost all areas.

    New Reciever Suggestions?

    Ah,old thread.. Well i ended up keeping the Marantz. I found the musical quality of both the recievers to be pretty much the same with Marantz having an edge in the movies. I really like the 635 but felt Marantz equalled or bettered it in most of the areas. The plus point of 635 was its auto...

    Bollywood DVDs...reviewed for PQ and Sound?

    David, One movie i'd absolutely recommend which is in OAR as well as very good 5.1 mix is Lakshya, it is one of the better recent bollywood movies and the picture quality is brilliant.
