    Pioneer 49TX/Etronics/Extended Warranty???/

    I ordered one from etronics and it came next day in great shape. I don't know about warranty, but if I have a problem, I'm taking it to a local dealer and saying I got it as a gift. That should work - I've heard of other doing this just fine.

    VSX-49TX Help!

    Bob- Thanks a TON! I was freaking out thinking that the last thing I wanted to do was box that bad boy up! I'll try switching the input to the 480p input on the mitsubishi and then configure it THEN move it back for usage. That will work for me. I searched the Spot, but will post there...

    VSX-49TX Help!

    Hmm. I'll look. I didn't see anything in the manual nor in the quick troublehsooting area. I think the mits will take 480i in that input - in fact, it has to - I've got a old Panasonic A310 hooked into that port now and it's 1080i. I assume it could be broken, but everything else seems to work.1

    VSX-49TX Help!

    Help! I am in the long process of re-wiring my HT and setting up my new baby, the VSX-49TX. I haven't even gotten all the speakers wired or my new rack in, but since I've had this since Monday just sitting on the floor, who can blame me for diving in and setting up my system in a temporary...

    Dell Inspiron 3500 laptop (P2-400/128MB/10GB)

    Posting for my girlfriend - she really needs the money due to an unexpected expense and doesn't have the time to wait for a proper eBay auction. FS: Dell Inspiron 3500 Pentium II 400 mhz 128 MB RAM 14.1" XVGA 10 GB HD (formats to 9.35 GB) Floppy 24x CDRom I think there is software...

    PS2-gameshark for playing R2 DVDs

    I know DVD RegionX for the PS2 will do this trick. If anyone knows of one shipping for the Xbox, line forms to the right... I've seen notice of the one coming (amazon Uk has a listing) but don't know of anyone who has one.

    Are there any problems putting a laser disc player on top of my T.V. ?

    If this helps, I went to a commercial glass place and had a custom piece of glass cut so that it distributed the weight of my center channel (a beefy Boston Acoustics VR-12) on the top of my RPTV. YMMV - perhaps something you can try if you are concerned aobut it.

    Why is ps2 selling so cheap on ebay?

    Well, it seems the best/cheapest way to buy a PS2 is to buy one from gamestop - they've been running specials with the console, memory card, DVD remote, MGS2 & GTA3 (one of the one's I've seen) for $250 or so. And yes, I've got an Xbox, but I do want a PS2. So, I don't _think_ the fanboy...

    Those with 7.1 setups, I need advice.

    How high are your rear center's above the listening position? level? I read HT Mag's THX Ultra 2 article and they suggested 7' behind, 2' above the listener and position both side by side. I think I can do side by side and 2' above, but don't think i can do 7'. I can maybe do 3' - I...

    Can Xbox be connected to wireless LAN?

    You could set up a wireless bridiging setup - the cheap linksys wap11 will do that - but you'll need 2 of them. I believe linksys is supposed to come out with a wireless adapter that basically plugs into the ethernet port on the Xbox - I seem to recall reading this in a magazine, but have yet...

    Might and Magic IX

    not surprised by that review. i hate to say it, but M & m is past its prime. I'd love to give them $50 for a great game, but alas, it ain't MMIX. I think I'll save my money and just get ready for Warcraft III.

    Might and Magic IX

    Did they use the _same_ f*cking engine AGAIN? I am a big fan, but really hate 3DO after running the series into the ground. They put basically the same graphical engine in 6-8 and it was crappy looking when they released 6 (I remember reading some BS about that they didn't need to use hardware...

    What is the Best Receiver for Bostons?

    I also use a Yamaha RX-V2095 with my Boston set up (see my HT link). Though, I'm seriously considering an upgrade to a Pioneer VSX-49TX this year. I'll probably replace the Boston's before too long - looking at Vienna Acoustics I think.

    Bang & Olafsen

    I've thought that their TV's looked pretty darn cool too.

    Price cuts could be on the way

    I would like for all the consoles to be free. Free games too would be nice.

    Fair Warning : Mega Memory 16x (GCN)

    I got burned while playing skies of arcadia. I lost my save about 30% into the game. since then, I only bought VMUs. Good thing the game was fun. Oh, and this is another good reason to put a hard drive in your console. :)

    XBOX region free??

    I figure I can get it sent from the UK, but didn't know if would only work on a PAL machine...

    Price cuts could be on the way

    I've thought this for a while, but I doubt that the PS2 will drop until they have their Ntework adapter/modem + HD bundle. Sell that for $299 and then their base unit for 249 or something. It seems clear that online has to be a big part of what they are doing, so a bundle makes a whole lot of...

    boston vr-950 vs 970

    I've got the VR-960's & no other sub. I also live in an apartment - so FWIW... I think the bass _does_ lack - and I do dream about an SVS quite often. The truth is that I have neighbors and don't want to 1) piss them off or 2) have to be constantly adjusting it, depending on if they are home...

    XBOX region free??

    Is DVDRegionX out in the US yet? They are selling it on Amazon.co.uk for European Xboxen. Has anyone seen it shipping for US systems yet? I keep checking lik-sang and they don't have it yet...

    Played Civilization 3 for the first time

    Cool - but I gotta say - 15 years and it's your first time playing Civ? I guess that's good for you - If I had done something else with all those 100's of hours I put into playing Civ....

    Anybody know when the next price drop is?

    I was reading on IGN that the HDD for the PS2 is now scheduled for 2003 - anyone know more on this? I presume it's possible to do the broadband w/o the HDD (no real reason why they'd have to be linked) and that's supposed to launch this summer for the PS2 right?

    Games that nobody seems to like but you do . . .

    Space Channel 5 is pretty popular in Japan. My game is a PC/Unix/Mac game that I actually still boot up and play - Angband! Perfect to play in a meeting, as it runs in a little window on my laptop.. It's an old Rogue/Nethack/Moria descendent based on Tolkien. It's all ASCII character based...

    Looks Like the XBOX Will Be a Region Free DVD Player

    There is one listed at Amazon Uk - release date of 3/22 I think. Anyone know if this will work in a region 1 player? If so, I'm ordering it tonight! Got a copy of Kiki's R2 DVD and am dying to watch it!

    Anybody know when the next price drop is?

    I can only see MS dropping the price is the PS2/internet/hard drive bundle is cheaper than the Xbox. However, I doubt it will be. I expect the xbox to hold the price for a while, but wouldn't doubt them creating a bundle, like the GT3 PS2 bundle (Halo 1.5 maybe?)
