    Anyone else having problems with A Bug's Life on the PS3?

    I originally played ABL in my PS3 with older firmware (2.5?) and my wife played it with my daughter tonight with the latest firmware. Both times it played fine.

    Need some Front Porjector recommendations... <$3K

    I can only say that I am extremely pleased with the Epson PRO 1080UB(performance wise the same as the HOME) in my dedicated theater room and a 110" screen. Projectorreviews.com is a good place to start researching.

    A Blu-ray player [Sony BDP-S550] that will do EVERYTHING! (Verified)

    Does anyone know if this unit will provide any kind of bass management for the 7.1 analog outs. Thanks.

    Wanting to go Blu Ray

    One last question. Will either of these two machines provide bass management? My 3802(I wrongly typed 3803 in the original post) will not do bass management through the 5.1 inputs.

    Wanting to go Blu Ray

    Thanks so much for the help. I am very tempted to get the PS3 right now and use it until the Panny BD50 or the Sony S550 come out. I am planning a flat screen for my living room later in the year so I could use the PS3 for that when the time comes. I will not be needing the new sound formats...

    Wanting to go Blu Ray

    I am an old HT enthusiast that is trying to get back in the game a little. My T.V. in my theater room is only 1080i (Mits. WS-65907). I have done some reading lately to try and figure out what to do to go blu ray without buying a new T.V. A projector is in my future but not right now. As for my...

    RPTV vs. Projector? Aesthetics

    I would also go with FP. I have a dedicated room and wish I had a FP. I bought my 65" RPTV about year before I bought a house with a dedicated HT therefore I could not justify replacing it so soon. I have had the RPTV calibrated and the picture is great but I still wish I had a FP. When upgrade...

    4 Channel Amp

    Thanks John! I ended up going with the Crossfire VR142. It is 35watts X 2. I decided to just let the rear speakers remain powered by the head unit since I really fade most of them out anyway. It really sounds good. I was not sure of my choice on the Kenwood Exelon speakers with the head unit...

    4 Channel Amp

    I am looking for a reasonably priced(around $200 or less) amp to drive two 6.5" Kenwood Excelon in the front and two Kenwood 6 X 8's in the back. I have a twelve inch sub(Old SVS standard driver) already, so the speakers will only be seeing from about 80hz on up. I am just trying to improve some...

    My personal Fitness, Diet and Nutrition Plan for losing fat and staying fit : )

    I am doing pretty good. My only problem is that I cannot quit losing weight. I NEVER thought that I would have this problem. I am still lifting but have cut the cardio almost completely out. This week I am actually taking a break. I plan on starting back next Monday with only heavy weight...

    My personal Fitness, Diet and Nutrition Plan for losing fat and staying fit : )

    Great job John Stone. Keep up the hard work. I wish I had documented my 65 lb. weight loss and eventual muscle gain. Obviously I can see that I have made progress but pictures would really hit home.

    My personal Fitness, Diet and Nutrition Plan for losing fat and staying fit : )

    Hey Chris, As I stated before I have lost 65 lbs. I had a large gut before and just this weekend received a huge compliment from a semi-stranger. My sister and a co worker stopped by when I was just waking up so I answered the door with just warm up bottoms on. Later on my sister told me...

    My personal Fitness, Diet and Nutrition Plan for losing fat and staying fit : )

    JonZ I have preset dumbells up to 65 lbs. right now. By the time I start a new program I will hopefully have up to around 85. I also got my calve machine put together today. It is sweet. No more back breaking toe lifts.:)

    anyone actually DISLIKE a center channel speaker?

    I have the exact same setup as Philip Hamm (same speakers with tweeter down on the center) and concur with what he has said. Identical speakers across the front are much better than a so called matched center. I may have to try raising the fronts a bit and see if it helps me as well. I have...

    My personal Fitness, Diet and Nutrition Plan for losing fat and staying fit : )

    I'm not Jon but Peck deck is the same as flat bench fly's except it is a machine I think. Skullcrushers are done with a typical curl bar. Lay on your back (floor or bench). Take a narrow grip on the bar with your hands facing the ceiling. Press up on the bar until your arms are fully...

    My personal Fitness, Diet and Nutrition Plan for losing fat and staying fit : )

    Chris, Sorry it took so long. Yes, I find that once a week definitely helps me to gain mass. More than that for anything other than calves and abs and I find my workouts to be lacking. One rule of thumb is to never work a muscle that is sore. If your muscles are not getting sore well, then...

    what is the best 16:9 RPTV (HDTV)

    A well calibrated Mits. will hold up well if not beat any of them including the Elite. Out of the box however the Elite's are usually better. Toshiba's are very nice once calibrated as well.

    My personal Fitness, Diet and Nutrition Plan for losing fat and staying fit : )

    Great PLAN Chris! I basically followed this same PLAN (except that I did cardio daily)to loose 65 pounds recently. I went from 270 to 205. My goal was only 55 but it kept coming off. When I reached the 55 pound mark I changed my routine a bit. I weight train much heavier now and do less...

    Just bought a 55 gal aquarium and stand...now what?

    www.oscarfish.com It's been awhile since I have frequented it but there used to be some pretty knowledgeable folks there. One thing I have learned in over 15 years of fish keeping. Once your fish & filters are established you cannot change too much water. When I had my 135 gallon I changed...

    Home Theater In a Box

    I am looking for a good HTIB for my sister. She already has a good subwoofer so that aspect is not important. The price should be under $1000 and preferably around $800. Thanks for any input.

    "Signs": Vista Error? and Glitches?

    The layer change length is not a problem with my player. The part mentioned earlier is indeed correct. But you forgot to mention the low bass rumble that is taking place during this scene transition. The split second of silence due to the layer change during this scene is very annoying...
