    What service van are you most happy with?

    I would look into the new Chrysler Pacifica. The "experts" are very impressed with it at the Auto shows. My 2003 Chrysler Town and Country is still going strong, and still has the original trans. I just turned 200,000 miles about a week ago.

    Let's Talk Headphones

    I bought the Sennheiser HD598 on Black Friday for $95. Excellent sound and super roomy/comfy. The best I've found under $50 are the Koss KSC75. I've got 2 of those.

    I've been on a Stephen King binge.

    I read a lot of his books, and the worst one is Carrie. Very boring. The movie is much better.

    Problem playing some blurays on Panasonic player.

    Have you checked to make sure the player has the latest firmware installed? If not, that's the first thing I would do.

    Can anyone recommend a good modem/router combo unit ?

    Do you mean the Zoom 5363? It's on the approved list, and it's 100 Mbps. Will that work well streaming 4k video? I assumed I need 300 Mbps for 4k video. Is that right?

    Can anyone recommend a good modem/router combo unit ?

    We do not want a separate router and modem. We also want it to be able to stream 4k video in the future. What specs should we look for? This will be used with TWC(EarthLink) broadband internet. The link below lists their approved modem/router combo units...

    a reciever for my garage? durability? temp concerns?

    I don't know about the current receivers, but I have had a cheap Marantz stereo receiver in my unheated garage for about 20 years with no problems. And I'm sure the winters here are even colder than by you.

    BenQ HT1075 DLP Home Theater Projector Review

    I would work on solving the ambient light problem before I bought ANY projector. If not, the extra money you spend on a better projector will be wasted.

    Projector picture setup help (Optoma HD20)

    The projector is not level and square to the screen. It needs to be level front to back, and left to right.

    Screen suggestions

    Josh makes a good point about experimenting for screen size. Also, when there are 2 or more rows of seating, you have to compromise on screen size. I would choose screen size based on where YOU will sit.

    tv projector suggestions please

    You want the image outside, and the projector inside. I don't see how that's possible.

    New Netflix user very, very Impressed!

    I agree. Some people expect Netflix to have every single show and movie forever. It's ridiculous.

    Retirement this summer, any suggestions to relocate for my Golden Years?

    Most of the "Where to Retire" lists are a joke. Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana are beautiful though. If it wasn't for the nasty winters, I'd love to live there.
