    Onkyo HT-S3400 OR Yamaha YHT-495BL OR Denon DHT1312BA

    Which one would I choose? I would go with "none of the above". If you're not locked in to Best Buy I'd buy somethng else. If you want sub/sat system look at the Jamo A340PDD.3 http://www.vanns.com/shop/servlet/item/features/544726540/jamo-a340pdd-3?s_c=site_search Add the Denon 1611 receiver...

    Friday Night Lights - Season 3 (NBC) - No DirecTV Spoilers!

    As far as the music subsititutions, I don't even notice the music on FNL. I can't ever recall saying to myself "the music is really good on this show, where can I find that song". I watched Season1&2 on NBC, Season 3 on DirecTV and own Seasons 1&2 on DVD. So the DirecTV, NBC and DVD music...

    Pioneer VSX-1014TX Power Issues

    There's a processor reset for that receiver. I cant remember which buttons to press off the top of my head. We had to reset my buddies VSX-1014 2-3 years ago, its been fine ever since. here it is: ENTER + VIDEO2 keys for 2 seconds on the front panel.

    Friday Night Lights season 3 (DirecTV 101)

    This show is so great! Season 3 is definitely up there with Season 1. The Taylor's house buying decision seemed very realistic. Jason's expectations of getting a job were pretty naive but I could see him being offered an entry level one after getting the player to sign with agency. $40K is a lot...

    Entourage: Season Five

    I didn't see that coming until Alan went into his fit of rage. The shroom episode was the worst one ever for me. I guess if I had done mind altering drugs I might have appreciated it more.

    Friday Night Lights season 3 (DirecTV 101)

    They were looking at shrine the McCoy kid has and he's only a freshman. They even had plaques for just participating up there. They made some comment about that and then the kid walked in. Parents are just a bit overboard don't you think? He said something about "my parents even have my first...

    Friday Night Lights season 3 (DirecTV 101)

    We had a freshman start midway thru the season at my school. He gave the team the best chance to win. So its not impossible.

    Friday Night Lights season 3 (DirecTV 101)

    I watched the Friday Night Lights debut on DirecTV 101 last night. I didn't realize how much I miss this show! Still great writing and love the fact there are no commercials. A lot of things happened in the offseason. I thought Riggins should have graduated last year also. He and Jason...

    American Idol - Season 7

    It didn't sound to me like the kid HAD to be homeless, he WANTED to be homeless. Why didn't he just go home? His family didn't kick him out.

    Best 7.1 Receiver Under $400

    The power of the HK receivers is deceiving. HK accurately rates their power while many others automatically claim 100 watts per channel and they're not even close. Try one out and see if its powerful enough for your needs, you may be surprised.

    Lost season 3 discussion....

    Good theory but I still think its Michael in the box. I'm willing to assume that's a black owned funeral home along with the barber shop nearby. It could still be a diverse neighborhood though.

    Grey's Anatomy Season 3 thread

    Isn't that the truth. I always thought Meredith was the weakest part of the show. And since its titled "Grey's Anatomy", we're stuck with her. Maybe this is a way out? Hopefully so. Give Meredith one more season and then let her move on.

    American Idol - Season 6

    From http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=2608 This was the first #1 hit song with a rap. Artists like Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, and Kurtis Blow had been rapping since the mid-'70s, and The Sugarhill Gang had the first Top-40 hit earlier in 1980 with "Rapper's Delight," but until...

    Entourage season 3 (Parts 1 and 2)

    Which is why they can't do hour long episodes, no matter how many people complain that Entourage is too short. An hour long epsiode would really drag at times.

    A few thoughts about....DELIRIOUS (still the funniest stand-up ever!)

    It was cool back then, pretty funny now. I remember seeing Larry Blackmon of Cameo in concert wearing something similar in black leather plus placing a bright red cup over his crotch.

    In addition to Jackie Gleason and Desi Arnaz, Teddy Pendergrass is gone too. And while not dead, Michael Jackson's career and life has changed significantly.
