    Toshiba 34HFX83 HD CRT for sale--$250

    I am selling my Toshiba 34HFX83. It is a wonderful TV, but I am moving and need to lighten my load a bit. Beautiful, vibrant picture you can only get with a CRT! I am located in Charlotte, NC.

    Academy Awards trivia question

    My dad posed this question to me (he doesn't know the answer either) and it's driving us nuts. What movie has the most Academy Award-winning actors in it? They could have won before the movie, after the movie, for that movie, it doesn't matter. The Godfather came to mind. Or maybe it's...

    New receiver choices

    Thanks for the input, everybody! I am going to go with the Panasonic.

    New receiver choices

    The Panasonic really looks good. Thanks for the feedback. I am currently using Cambridge Soundworks speakers that were originally part of a 5.1 computer setup. It's a small room, so they do the trick, but I will upgrade those at some point too. I am buying the receiver first because I don't...

    New receiver choices

    I am looking to buy a new receiver for my expanding HT setup. I don't know too much about receivers, so I am hoping to get some advice. I don't want to spend more than about $200 or so. Cheap? Yes, but I'm not the wealthiest member of the forum :) Here are a couple of options I am...

    Raging Bull 2-disc SE, with a personalized autograph from Ms. Thelma Schoonmaker. I would sacrifice my family for this disc....OK, maybe not.

    *** Official THE AVIATOR Discussion Thread

    This was going to be Howard Hughes' glass. The senator knew of Hughes' germ-related fears and was trying to shake him up--when they are sitting down to eat, Hughes notices the fingerprint and is disturbed because the glass is unclean.

    2004 Academy Awards: Early predictions and discussion

    I think The Life Aquatic is dead in the water (pardon the lame joke). Reviews have not been too good so far, and I think some people are growing tired of Anderson's ultra-quirky, dry humor. I also think Sideways is a lock for a BP nomination, but The Aviator still has to be the favorite to...

    Mafia history on DVD?

    I was wondering if there are any good shows/series available about American mob history. I am particularly interested in the prohibition era and Chicago. I think the History Channel has done some good stuff in this area, but I'm just not sure about DVD availability. Anybody know?

    Pierce Brosnan out as Bond? (UPDATE: Daniel Craig confirmed)

    I really really hope they do something like this, with some good suspense and cloak and dagger elements. However, I seriously doubt it will happen given the current direction of the series. My hope is that the coming of a new Bond (Clive Owen is my favorite option by far) can bring about a...

    70mm Festival in Seattle

    I saw Lawrence of Arabia today. It was a really great experience! The theater was packed, the screen was BIG, and the print looked great for the most part.

    *** Official 2003 Academy Awards Discussion Thread

    Here are my two cents on the ceremony: I thought, overall, it was very boring and unfunny. Billy Crystal keeps doing the same exact bit every year, and I am not amused any more. OK, we get it! You're in the movie, but you weren't actually in the movie! Ha, ha. Move on. And the musical thing...

    My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance (renamed)

    I was amazed that nobody objected. I also thought Steve did an incredible job of turning the mood around after he dropped the news of his identity. Even after the family found out the wedding was a hoax, they weren't happy at all, but Steve put the necessary spin on it. What really struck...

    Where is Max?? (Around the Horn)

    I don't like Stat Boy, but Kellerman was unbearably obnoxious. I won't miss him. I'm sure Stat Boy is just filling in until they can hire someone else to do it full time.

    Hahaha. I just checked out Kenny Goldin's member profile, and it appears he set his location to "BANNED" so it appears in his posts. He's not banned.

    Question about DVI

    Comcast does not have the DVI output activated on their HD boxes in most places. If you are not getting a picture through DVI, this is almost certainly why. There is no definitive answer yet as to when it will be active.
