    Need advice now

    I'd say that you just pay to have it shipped. That seems easiest or rent a larger one way uhaul. Keep in mind once it leaves the door of the brandsmart store you're responsible sort of like a car.

    How do I improve DVD playback on a 40" 1080p HDTV LCD?

    I'd get the oppo or the Samsung HD960/970 /860 they up convert to the 720p/1080p!

    Heroes season 1 thread

    See I think that they run the show over to get you to tune in back to the station live and possibly catch a commercial or 2... But I like the explaination about missing the first 5 mins of another show on another network so you don't tune out but this is silly because the sampling...

    ?? Benq8720, Mitsu HC5000, InFocus 7210

    I really like the Benq 8720 or the Benq 100. The benq has great bright picture and pops I'd skip the Infocus. That 7210 is somewhat out dated

    Buying a TV in this day and age...

    I'm recommend that you consider also the JVC DILA (LCOS) its cheaper than the Sony and great quality. XXFH97 and XXFN97 are the current models LCOS RPTV perform great for films its a softer picture than the DLPs Just my 2 cents ticotva [email protected]

    Runco Plasma and LCD

    I think the Runcos are a little over rated . That and they dont make any thing they just resemble & label. you are totally paying more for label. I dont think the quality of either fujitsu or the runco pictures are significantly better than the pioneer or NEC models. Panasonic and Pioneer both...

    Pioneer PDP-5071 or Panasonic TH-50PX60U

    I tend to like the Pioneer its a more crisp picture to me. The Panasonics tended to have a little pixel bleeding Its worth it to spend the money on better quality most of these sets are under 4k now so you'll be alright in that area. Ticotva

    Please help a newbie.....

    You have a lot of light in this room. a project isnt a good idea unless you can control the light. If you did go that route i'd advise blackout curtains.

    looking for a projector

    I see one main issue with your goals here: If I understand you right you want a lot of lumens for a little money. Its not going to happen. Most home projectors are in the 1000-1400 range which is plenty for most dimmly lit rooms. You'll need to accept this range if you are not going to create a...

    looking for a projector

    I agree very companies are prioritizeing 4:3 projectors since everything is moving to 16:9 . Usually you have the option to switch aspect ratios on most HD projectors. There are couple old NEC and Infocuss that used 4:3 s and you had to use an anmorphoric lens to get 16:9
  29. TicoTVA


    Most newer TV's are HDTV format. Virtually all FLat screens over 40" are 16:9 There are some LCD in the 15" size that are 4:3 That said a projector or flat screen 16:9 have settings for 4:3 but you 'll see black bars on the side of the screen. ticotva [email protected]
