    First of all, I apologize if this is in the wrong forum, considering it's more for music and recording rather than home theater. I was browsing through musiciansfriend.com looking at live mixers. I'm looking for a small board for small gigs and doing simple recordings at home through my...

    Disney's "The Wild Country" (1971). Ever coming to dvd?

    Is there any interest in this little Disney family film? I don't remember all that much about it, but liked it a lot as a kid. It'd be cool to own this, even if it didn't have any extras. upon further review, as far as I can tell this was released on VHS in 1986, so I guess I won't hold my...

    Psycho album conducted by Hermann...

    I've read of an out of print album of Psycho conducted by Hermann. This wasn't the soundtrack, but one he rerecorded years later. Does anyone know of it or should I just check ebay? It may just be on LP for all I know, which is fine as well. I have the Elfman condensed score and the McNeely cd...

    Bob Dylan newbie...where do I start?

    I'm looking for some new (well...new to me) tunes, and I thought about Dylan. I'm not really familiar with much of his stuff, but where should I start? Should I go with an overview of the "Essential Bob Dylan" set? I was given a $25 gift card from iTunes, so I might go that route. If I like it...

    I saw her last album was put out on a dualdisc. It wasn't my favorite of hers but it grew on me. I noticed a new Christmas album online and was wondering if anyone has seen the Dualdisc as well? Thanks for the help.

    Transferring i-pod, not itunes library to external hard drive.

    Forgive me if this is the wrong forum, but I think it's right. In the past I've dealt with hard drive space issues, but I just bought an external hard drive. It's 80 gig, and I own a 20 gig hard drive. I know there is an easy way to move my Itunes library to a new drive, but I deleted much of it...

    Ok, I'm waking up every morning congested and miserable, and I think possibly the dorm vents are responsible. Does anybody have suggestions for a purifier for a small room? Thanks. With some research, I'm finding there are air purifiers, air cleaners and other stuff. Basically, I don't know...

    I was searching through Movie Gallery the other day and was reminded of this movie. Haven't seen it in years, but remember I liked the music. The question is would anyone want this besides me?

    Sony PS-X500 turntable. Anyone own it?

    I just got this turntable cheap off of ebay and it doesn't come with a manual. I have an Aiwa receiver with a phono jack in the back of it, but there still is a very soft sound, even with the volume up. I'm guessing I need a pre-amp of some sort? I thought that if your receiver had a phono jack...

    Seamless branching not used on Halloween 25'th Anniversary.

    DVDfile says that Anchor Bay will not be using seamless branching between the two versions of the theatrical and tv version of the movie. I enjoy the theatrical version by itself, so this isn't a huge deal, but a little disappointing. I'll still buy this though, without a doubt, as I've been...

    Apex AD-1110W. Does it play DVD-R?

    I have a Toshiba 5 changer I'm happy with, but I'd have a few dvd-r's and wonder if this inexpensive player plays DVDr's? It doesn't say on the box, but wondered if anybody owned it as a secondary player or something? DVD rom plays them fine, but what about this apex? Thanks.

    Not really sure where this thread belong, but here goes. Does anybody put old home movies on VCD and DVD's? I'm looking to do this, just for the fun of it, but all the freeware I've downloaded is rather complicated. Is there anything out there for simple people like me?

    Fire in the Sky. Anybody want this on DVD?

    I always thought this movie was pretty good, and I'd love to see it on DVD. IMDB says Paramount is the distributor. Did anyone like this movie and would like to see it on DVD? I remember Robert Patrick in it, and I remember the last 30 minutes or so with the flashback being pretty freaky.

    Next blind purchase. Near Dark or Re-animator Millenium Editon?

    I've heard great things about both of these, but don't have access to either of these for rent. Which do you guys reccomend? I love vampire flicks, and I love EDII style humor. I only have moolah for one right now, so which one should be first? Both looks to be top notch DVD's as far as extras...

    Lawrence of Arabia, blind purchase???

    I've seen this used for $17.99. I've seen a lot of the "classics" but I haven't seen this one yet. I've heard a lot of dispute about the aspect ratio and different things and was wondering if this is worth a blind purchase or if another edition was coming? Let me know.
