    Advise on pre-build and post-build for Media Room

    whatever you decided to do, I hope you used good acoustic panels. So many forget this all important step. Acoustics are key to any true home theater setup. If I see a Home Theater without acoustics, I think rookie every time.

    Basement Home Theater....on a budget.

    That is a dope dope set up. I would add some DIY acoustic panels; however. Acoustics are key if you want a "legit" Home Theater experience. Fancy stars in your ceiling wont do much for the experience, but acoustics will take shit up several notches.

    My Theater is complete!

    yes, it is an eggshell finish...good eye! I wanted to use flat paint, but couldn't justify it in the end. I had two choices, a little bit of gloss, or repaint every 2 years until the kids graduate high school. I went with the eggshell. With the lights out, it is pitch black and there is...

    Optoma Home Theatre

    Chairs are not that bad. Take the $1,000, and build a few walls and cover the walls with sheet rock. Will look much better and improve the sound.

    Ray, I responded to the ridiculous comments on the electronichouse site and will respond to them here as well. That fool Alex is nothing more than that...a fool. He does not understand why people like us would ever take on a challenge like building a dedicated HT. His problem is he...

    Is there any hope for TIVO? Can it really compete?

    there is an article in the march issue of HT magazine that addresses your question. They blast motorols's DVR, but give great reviewes to the SA 8300 HD DVR. They say tivo is far and away the better option, but at $800 plus monthly service fee, you would have to be a DVR nut to pay that. I...

    Panasonic TH-50PX60U

    thought of an idea. I wonder if I turn off the Panny speakers if the sound will work? If the TV is casuing this while mess, it is obvisouly confused as to what to do with the the audio signal that is coming in from the cable box and the DVD player. It must only be able to play it through the...

    JUNK

    I should take back my earlier comment as the person working at BB the night I went in let me exchange the unit. The person on the phone said no way. funny, depending on who you talk to there are two different policies. they were out of the LG, so I exchanged for a philips....we'll see.

    Panasonic TH-50PX60U

    tv set up. HD and DVD looks GREAT! SD TV is ok at best. maybe calibration will improve. anyways, great purchase. well, HDMI issue, not sure if I need to tell the Panny to only use HDMI for video? I have no HDMI swithing ablility, so I ran HDMI from SA 8300 and Philips DVD for video...

    HDMI/ SA 8300 HDDVR

    thank you. TW told me I need HDMI with a DVR...maybe for another reason. anyway... The HDMI is going from the cable box into the TV, HDMI input one. I have no cable co-ax going to the TV at all. I have an optical audtio cable going to the cable box into my receiver. When I switch to...

    HDMI/ SA 8300 HDDVR

    will the SA8300 HD DVR record with a component connection? Just got my first expereince with HDMI and it is not a good one. cannot get audio properly sent to my receiver. maybe there is a setup issue with my TV/cable box and DVD, but when I use component cables, everything works great...

    What the [email protected]$#

    That is what I am thinking as well. problem is I have a DVR from time warner, 99% sure I need to use HDMI to record on the DVR. anyone else have some suggestions. I would hate to tell my wife we need to buy a new receiver with HDMI switching.

    What the [email protected]$#

    hooked up DVD player via component video, and everything is fine. do you mean to tell me that if I use HDMI, I cannot send an audio signal from the device to my receiver? do I need to go out and buy a HDMI switching receiver?
