    Question on hanging up movie posters...

    My theater has a clean simple look to it. I am thinking of hanging up some movie posters but before I put nails in the walls, I have a couple of doubts... For one, the glass will probably shine and glare especially if the frames are mounted along the side walls. Secondly the sub will...

    Anyone get their 3 or 5 free hd-dvd's yet?

    Glad to see this offer is also being offered in Canada! It was a nice surprise when I cut open the box for the A2. Too bad the choices are so poor... Unfortunately you lose out on this offer if you buy a demo or open box unit. I could have got another 3 free dvd's for my A1, except it never...

    Comparing the HD-A1 and HD-A2 ...(pics)

    Thought I would post a couple of pics for comparison. I have had my HD-A2 for a few days and I love it already! My A1 had the latest firmware and I would still have the occasional glitches...no sound sometimes, a flickering line at other times, and always slow! I haven't noticed any such...

    Anyone have the HD-A2 and a Harman Kardon HDMI receiver?

    I had posted this question as part of another discussion but figured I start a new thread. I just picked up my new HD-A2 yesterday and hooked it up to my HK335 receiver through the TOS link. The receiver shows 'DTS' when it is connected through the optical cable. It also shows DTS when my...

    When the heck is the HD-A2 available in Canada?

    I have been keeping an eye out but haven't seen it yet. Visions has one demo that's labeled 'Not for Sale.' Nothing yet at Future SHop or Best Buy. The sales guys don't know crap! One guy says it should be here this week...you ask another and he says not till Feb... It's amazing how most of...

    My Completed Home Theater Project... (pic's)

    Well it took almost 6 months of evenings and weekends to complete this project. I would come home after work and put in about 2 hrs a night. I had to re-do all the electrical, heating and plumbing to open up this room for the home theater. The furnace and hot water tanks had to be removed...

    Best way to hook up HD-A2 audio??

    I currently own the HD-A1 player and have it hooked up to my Harman Kardon receiver through the Digital Coax output. Video goes straight to the projector through HDMI and it works great. Now with the lack of the digital coax output on the HD-A2, what's the best way to hook up the audio? I...

    Questions on Dolby 7.1 setup...

    I am just putting the finishing touches on my dedicated theater room. The room is approx. 24ft x 12ft. With these dimensions, the front and center channel sound 'far away' from the seating position - especially with the rear channels being right behind my theater seats. I am wondering if...

    Anyone have bass shakers in their home theater seats?

    I am ordering some new seats and one option is the bass shakers. Just wondering if anyone has them. Is this a waste of money or a nice to have option? I've seen them in a couple of furniture stores, but no one actually has them hooked up. I definately want the power recline feature though!

    Anyone have the Sony VPL-VW50 ?

    I just ordered this 1080p projector and was looking for a heads up. Is it easy to setup? Do I need to know anything before hand? I am looking to mount it on the ceiling and hope a generic mount will do the trick. Are you happy with the picture quality??

    Has anyone installed fiber optic ceiling lights?

    I am putting in a black suspended ceiling tile and thought this would be a nice touch. I've seen a few for sale on ebay but not sure which kind to go with or what's the best place to buy. There seem to be several options like low voltage, number of fiber optic strands, etc. The ceiling tile in...
