    What in the hell happened to (remastered) An American Werewolf in London?!

    It came from a 6K scan of the original negative according to Landis, but I watched the new Blu and it's a DNR mess - not just badly grain reduced, but weird looking digital manipulation and artifacts. RAH - what happened to the 'new' Universal?

    FS: JVC DLA-RS4810

    I’m selling my JVC DLA-RS4810 front projector which is a “B stock” model purchased from AVS.

    Bad Center Channel?

    I have the Infinity Beta 360 center channel. While watching the Superbit Spider-man, with either DD or DTS track, at exactly 32:00 into the movie, music with fairly deep bass comes on through the center channel. For the several seconds it plays, the speaker almost sounds like it's...

    How sensitive is focus on a CRT RPTV

    Yesterday I carefully cleaned the CRTs and mirror. However, when I had to roll back my set, the set took a slight "bump" as the wheel of the TV moved into the groove of the carpet. I checked convergence and it looked pretty. I know my ISF calibrator said he tighted the bolts well on the...

    Does it matter whether I use my receiver's test tones or Avia

    Is there a difference when using a sound meter? Just curious if it matters which I use...especially in regards to calibrating my sub. I do understand Avia is about 10 db higher.
