    Rant about GG's "repair" techs and question

    Greetings, A week ago, my 1+ year old Tosh 50HDX82, suddenly developed a darker picture. I had previously used the VE DVD to calibrate the set, so it was very noticable. I had to turn up the brightness from around 40 to 85 to see any detail. Since I purchased the extended warranty from GG's, I...

    Driver recommendations for 3.89Ft3 sealed sub

    Greetings, I have new JBL S38's, S26's, and an S-Center on the way, and I am now looking at my old sub for upgrading. A few years back, I converted my old 15 BSR passive sub to powered version, via a PartsExpress 150W amp. It works great, but I was thinking a new driver may improve the sound...

    Comcast HDTV tuners (Hopefully not wrong forum)

    Just thought I would let everyone in the Sacramento,CA area know that Comcast is now offering their HDTV tuners for $5 per month on top of the digital cable box cost. They will carry ABC, NBC, PBS, Showtime, and HBO. (No CBS..) It will have an antenna input (per Comcast, I haven't seen the...

    Upgrade question (obvious?)

    Greets, I am looking to upgrade our Sony KP53XBR200, but am severely limited regarding chassis size, as 48.5" wide is the max our wall cutout will allow. I was looking at a new SONY KP51WS500 (48" wide), but had a few questions: 1. Would an "entry level" HDTV monitor give any improvement in...
