    What causes the slighly jerky motion I always see in store HDTV displays?

    My $0.02 Let's avoid the technology argument. They all have their place and can hold their respective grounds. I believe what Brian is describing is the disadvantage that comes with an interlaced signal. With 1080i, pixelation can be seen in fast moving action or with something like an...

    SD DVD player help.

    Are there any upconvertes that up over component without issues? I know the DVB318 will if you have one made before a certain date. But are there any that do a nice job regardless of when it was made?? If not is there a dvd/vcr combo with a tv tuner that will play all signals through...

    Having trouble getting projector to run HD image

    All right this got me thinking so I found your manual online. First you want to hit the dispaly button while the dvd player is on but not playing ("stop mode" according to the manual) Then Select SETUP and press enter Select CUSTOM and press enter Select SCREEN SETUP and press enter...

    Having trouble getting projector to run HD image

    You most likely need to change the settings on your dvd player. I have not used your equipment, however on my upconverting DVD player, you need to set the output options before you begin playing a dvd. Your projector is going to use whatever signal your dvd player sends. I'm no expert either...

    Does anyone own

    the NEC HT410?? I don't see anything posted on it. I would like to find out more about it's performance. It went out of production this summer and I have seen it reconditioned for under $500 with warranty. I was thinking about just grabbing it for that price and if I did't like it try to ebay...

    Has anyone ever ordered a big tv online? What are the chances it'll arrive unharmed?

    Although I never have ordered a bigscreen online, my experience is actually the bigger and boxier the safer it is. Nobody will be throwing it around, thats for sure. Is that price with shipping?? Do they provide insurance??

    Panny XR55 or refurb HK 235?

    I would take the HK in a heartbeat. If nothing else’s it's features blow the panny away. I have the HK 230 which is the earlier (6.1 instead of 7.1) version of the 235. I love it. Also I noticed that harmanaudio.com had the 230 for $197.00. Since you don't already have a 7.1 setup I would...

    TOY STORY 3 (merged thread)

    For some reason this makes me feel like Pixar's movies will suffer from this. Disney's animated features of late have been down right horrible! Personally I think Pixars films some of the best for repeat viewing and was looking forward to pixar movies sans Disney. This "announcement" is a...

    That makes sense. I overlooked that detail when I was looking over the specs. There are too many ifs ands or buts anymore. That's why this forum is so helpfull. I used to understand how home theater equipment worked...

    New InFocus Play Big projectors

    I was poking around http://www.projectorcentral.com looking at the new line of InFocus projectors. The new Play Big series are going to be 1080p capable. The lowest model (Play Big IN72) has a suggested price of $1299. At this price it is by far the cheapest 1080p projector or large screen...

    Blackout Curtains

    Most fabric stores carry the material you are looking for. Just ask for Light Absorbing Black-Out Material. This stuff is/was traditionally used by photographers in darkrooms and such and is pretty readily available. Or do Google search blackout material.

    Mini theater?

    I was aware of this and planned to deal with it when installing. I was hoping to minimize the effects by using accoustical tiles or maybe even using carpet to help level the sound field. But even in a square room the sound should be improved over my living room setup now. I havn't been too...

    Mini theater?

    My fiancé and I bought our first house and I’m considering turning a spare bedroom into a small theater. The room is cozy at 11' x 11'. At first I had no intention of putting a "theater" room in because I felt the rooms I had at my disposal were just too small. But a friend of mine decided to...

    NCAA Football 2005 Season

    I agree that Meyer will have an impact at florida. However, the fact that Washington is coming off a single win season, and they are rich with talent (despite last year), Tyrone Willingham is set up to look like a genius this year. The huskies could easily go 9-2 and find themselves in a decent...

    Directors Who has the largest...

    screen? I was wondering, who has the largest screen? I watch 40" so I know it's not me. Most of the galleries I have seen, people usually fall between 80" and 120" (diag). But I was wondering who was pushing the limits of their projector? we are looking at a house that has a 40' X 25'...

    THX needs some feedback

    This is the best idea I have ever heard!!!!!!!!!! EDIT: I am probably in the minority on this one, But I HATE animated menus. I miss that simple static menus dvd's had in the late 90's. Since I have already seen the movie on the dvd about to be watched (99% of the time), I find, with...

    THX needs some feedback

    Every dvd regardless of OAR should be anamorphic. If a person has a 4x3 display this makes no difference. However if one has a WS display they are left with the short end of the stick. PG

    I wasn’t sure where to post this; I hope I made the correct choice. I found this article on Yahoo. I found that it does a fair job of explaining HT for a newbie. However after reading it, I couldn't help but feel like it was setting people up for mediocrity. Maybe American consumers are...

    Bass shaker amplification

    Has anyone used a plate amp to run bass shakers? Currently I have a pair of the pro series in my couch running off a 5.1 Pioneer receiver. I saw that parts express has a plate amp for $50. w/free shipping. The Pioneer seems to be doing a fine job but I think it could be put to better use...
