    Basement Theater Design Help (Denver)

    I need some help. We moved into our new home in Castle Rock, CO last July and are looking to finish our basement this spring. My wife has graciously allocated me a small space in the basement that I can build a dedicated home theater. :) In our previous home of 10 years I had a projector and...

    XM Radio Holiday Blitz! Lowest player prices + FREE ACTIVATION and FREE MONTH!

    Make sure you check your credit card statement. They charged me a $14.99 activation fee in addition to the $39.99 for the SkyFi system and 3 mos service. I called and had to argue with the CSR but I got it waived (supposedly as a credit to my XM account). I'll let you know if it does...

    XM Radio Holiday Blitz! Lowest player prices + FREE ACTIVATION and FREE MONTH!

    Nope. Tried it. Still getting SkyFi2 at $129.99 with $50 instant rebate for $79.99. The prices shown in the ad are nowhere to be found. Care to set me straight? I'd really like to get in on the deal shown in the ad but it doesn't exist as far as I can see.

    XM Radio Holiday Blitz! Lowest player prices + FREE ACTIVATION and FREE MONTH!

    Ron, How do you get the SkyFi2 for $39.99 as shown in the ad? I logged in using the OPIANTXM6 code and it's coming up at $79.99 (same as my DirecTV code gets me). I would definitely buy this if I can get it at $39.99. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks!

    New Pioneer Elite 52TX, but 2 problems?

    I got the subwoofer to work just fine, but I still can't get the MCACC to work. I verified that the extension cable works fine, and tried it without it, but I am going to just do it manually. I think that the room is too big, and oddly shaped for the processor to be able to handle the...

    New Pioneer Elite 52TX, but 2 problems?

    Um, I stand corrected, I guess I am an idiot! :b Ok, well, since I am already exposed, let me ask another stupid question. Will the calibration settings stay in memory if I unplug the receiver to move it back into the audio cabinet in the mechanical room after I run the MCACC from the rec room?

    New Pioneer Elite 52TX, but 2 problems?

    Wayne, thank you for the insight, but I have been using the "sub out" from the start. I may be guilty of vague and ambiguous reference in the grammar of my post, but I am certainly not an idiot when it comes to hooking up my components. I can't move the receiver to the room where the speakers...

    New Pioneer Elite 52TX, but 2 problems?

    John, I tried the mic without the extension cord and got the same error. As for the sub, it has a master power switch and a silver toggle switch for "Auto" or "On". I had it with the swtich to "On". I will try the cable tap and see if I get a noise. Assuming I do, what then? (the AVR does...

    New Pioneer Elite 52TX, but 2 problems?

    I tried setting up my 52TX last night and had two issues that are driving me crazy: (1) I tried using the MCACC to auto-calibrate everything, but the receiver is in another room, so I had to buy an extension cable to make the supplied microphone reach out to the seating position, but I keep...

    Question on IR extending?

    I'm not sure how long of a run it will be from the front screen wall to the mechanical room, but I know for sure that it's a heck of a lot longer than 3 feet! :) I have a phone/data jack in the wall that another installer told me I could use because the phone doesn't use all the terminals in...

    Question on IR extending?

    I tried to search, but nothing comes up under "IR" I would like to know what I need to control my dvd player and receiver which will be in a mechanical closet from an IR "eye" that will be mounted under the screen in my rec-room. What products can you recommend? Would something like...

    Question on speaker placement and 6.1 vs 7.1

    I'm using a Pioneer Elite VSX-52TX. Sorry for the confusion, but if I wanted to only use 6.1 how do I hook up the 6th channel to the receiver when there are 2 connections on the back? Which do I use? I was thinking I should just get a 7th channel because I can get another speaker to match...

    Question on speaker placement and 6.1 vs 7.1

    I am getting ready to install some speakers into my basement rec room which will be our home theater. The house was built and pre-wired for 6.1 and has boxes in the walls for the front 3 speakers and in the ceiling behind the seating area for the back 3 speakers. Without getting into the...

    Gently used, well-taken care of 53" 4:3 HD-ready set with 3:2 pulldown, vertical squeeze, etc. More info can be found here. Really, a beatufiul set that doesn't work in my current setup. Moved into a new house and doesn't fit into wife's decorating plans (we ended up with a 36" set in a...

    Bump. For those perhaps unaware, the Panasonic Showstopper is a ReplayTV unit. I should have put that in the thread title.

    Selling my trusty Panasonic Showstopper (PVHS-2000). Upgraded the stock 30GB drive to a 120GB drive for up to 120 hours of recording at standard quality. I always recorded at high quality and you get 40 hrs there. (in other words: Standard = 120hrs, Medium = 80hrs, High = 40hrs) This unit...
