    Sub Amp Humming

    My sub has a constant hum even when it is not hooked up to anything except being plugged into the wall. I tried using a cheater plug, plugging into different outlets, different houses. I'm thinking the amp might be bad. Problem is that this is a DIY Tempest sub i bought 3 or 4 years ago and I...

    Leaning Toward Klipsch Speakers - Am I Crazy

    I own monitor 7's and like them very much. Maybe look into the paradigm studio series as they are very good but might be too expensive.

    What's a good gaming chair?

    if you want a REAL good gaming chair get a standard recliner and wire it up with bass shakers from parts express. If you don't like the rumble feature with your controller than this wouldn't be for you.

    ***Official The Brute Force Xbox Thread***

    the thing I hate about some game review sites is that the preview reviews of teh demo etc always build up the game and make it sound really good and then their actual post release review trashes it...I always feel tricked. Was the co-op strategy what was supposed to make Brute Force good? The...

    Bellingham WA area free theater seats

    Sehome Cinema is redoing there theaters and have thrown out all their old seats. They are dismantled and some are damaged, a little paint/cleaning will do them good. I talked to a manager and he said he didn't care if anyone took the seats. Just thought some people might want to check it out. I...

    Is CGI ruining your movie going experience?

    whoa whoa whoa, the cgi yoda is a product of several years of progressing technology. the lightsaber scene is the only time where I wasn't completely "convinced", but Lucas understandably would have gotten blank stares many years ago if he would have asked for that scene. Its not "perfect" by...

    Rental store clerk warnings

    ---------------------------------------------------------- No one grows up and says "when I grow up I want to work in a video store for a living". Well maybe some people do, but those people are probably still living in their parents basements and play D&D with their friends on a friday night...

    I pulled the trigger on the Infocus X1

    I can't imagine spending more money and getting an rptv...maybe if I had terrible ambient light, but Rptv's dont look that great in ambient light either.

    XBOX HD Pack is too dark

    my xbox is also noticeabbly darker than my other sources/consoles...luckily I have memory user settings on my projector so I have one with the settings higher for XBOX and can switch back and forth easily. Is that an option for any of you guys?

    Widescreen DVD after HD-DVD?

    I don't mind buying a new player, or some new DVDS but the thing that gets me w/ HD DVD is this DVI input stuff, namely the HDCP dvi. I have a pany L300 w/DVI but no HDCP...I'm selfishly hoping that HD-DVD comes out in a few years when I will be upgrading anyway.

    Rental store clerk warnings

    Hey Karl F, if you don't mind me asking what store do you own. I live in Bellingham also and am just curious. I have also grown tired of people on this forum and others bashing clerks, retail employees, projector operators etc...why are we so hard on these poor people just trying to make a...

    Apocalypse now

    I didn't like the plantation scene at all. For one it wasn't that good. In the original as the crew kept getting closer and closer to their destination things kept getting darker and their mental state and situation worsened and worsened. The plantation scene completely broke that up in my...

    DIY room treatments

    I had my first 'WOW' moment last night...

    don't worry about break in, don't play anything all day, just listen as usual. Crank it up as loud as you feel comfortable as long as it doesn't sound strained and all that.

    "WOW!" Moments in the Movies

    I was wowed (still haven't decided good or bad...seems to depend on my mood) when Legolas does that wierd mount onto that horse against the Wargs in two towers. I saw the Matrix Reloaded today...many wows...but most noticeably the flying scenes, and the oncoming traffic of the freeway...

    *** Official THE MATRIX RELOADED Discussion Thread

    3 is a significant number I noticed, Holy Trinity, 3 captains at the end of Reloaded. etc...There is some good discussion going on here. I don't like to see people say taht because of this the script is impenetrable when it in fact is not. most of the discussion seems to be speculation as to...

    *** Official THE MATRIX RELOADED Discussion Thread

    the religous icons in Reloaded are definently intentional, in film in general all set design is there for a reason.

    I think someone adept w/photoshop should make a Tank Matrix Reloaded picture. I would like to see that.

    The Matrix/Tank controversy

    I have a matrix reloaded poster with Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus on it...I'm sorry I just can't see Tank on that poster next to them. It does make me laugh. I MIGHT be able to see Tank on a poster if it was a Lord of the Rings type one where there are small headshots of many different...

    Is CGI ruining your movie going experience?

    best use of CGI for me has to be LOTR/TTT, but I'm biased towards those films anyway. I am all for CGI in most cases. Films like Reloaded, Spiderman, LOTR/TTT etc are really stretching the limits of the current technology it seems. Sometimes I notice its CGI like in the 100 smiths scene of...

    All Infocus X1 technical issues (merged thread)

    try a linear or circular polarizing filter. pretty cheap ($30 bucks) and should work, I think you need a 62mm, try it out before you take it back, the X1's are a steal.

    Won contest, Need help on video game tv purchase, $1700 budget...

    don't know if this is possible but get the tv sell it than buy a projector, an X1 possibly, that way you get a HUGE screen and don't have to worry about burn in. If thats not possible I would get a widescreen tv as you already have a 4x3.

    All Infocus X1 technical issues (merged thread)

    try a polarizing filter, either circular polarizing or linear polarizing, they have some cheap ones on EBAY I recommend Hoya, I have heard people say this corrects uniformity problems and even rainbows. Don't pay more than $40 bucks for one. They are neutral density so they shouldn't mess with...
