    iPod docks?

    Does anyone know of an iPod dock that allows remote control and hooks to any receiver? It's a tall order, I know. I was hoping to find one that hooks to a receiver via RCA plugs or the mini audio plug. I'm using a regular audio mini plug-to-rca cable but I would really like to change songs...

    stupid question

    My av gear is in a closet away from the TV and the only thing I could afford to run in wall was component. A tube wasn't possible either. Don't get me wrong, everything looks great through component but I thought I'd ask since I have the 1080p JVC. I just bought the HDDVD addon for my Xbox 360...

    over air antenna?

    Thanks guys. My JVC does indeed have a tuner built in. I bought an indoor powered antenna and it just gets regular channels. I'll go get a roof mount model today to see if I can get HD. Apparantly, with that website John Rice linked, I need one with a yellow color code. We'll see

    over air antenna?

    Hi guys. I just got a new 56" JVC HDILA 1080p set yesterday and since I don't have cable, I wanted to try one of those HD antennas to pick up local HD channels. Do these work well? Which one would you recommend? Thanks

    DVD suggestions to highlight surround sound

    Bad boys 2- the street fire fight scene right before the big rig car chase. War of the worlds (cruise version) The initial lightning strikes will scare the crap out of you if you have a strong system! oh, and that Eagles DTS DVD someone mentioned sounds beautiful

    56" JVC DILA?

    Hey guys. I'm looking to get this set in the near future and I'm wondering if it requires frequent bulb changes? Is it like a DLP? Thanks

    Whole House Audio

    I bought a few HTD speakers a while ago for my surrounds. They do sound great! Especially at that price! They deliver to your door on the date promised. I think my quote is on their website still, JoseLH from El Paso TX http://www.htd.com/revtes.html If you need help, ask Homthtr. He helped...

    RG6 or 59?

    Well, my RG 59's have been giving me a hard time with finding connectors. I had to go to a local Home Theater store to get RCA connectors that fit right!

    Connector quality...

    Does it make THAT huge of a difference using expensive RCA connectors over cheaper ones? I'm looking for some for my component cables. They will be behind wall plates and not visible. Does it matter if I buy some average ones from Radio shack? I wanted to order some from parts express but it...

    What should I upgrade after my new TV?

    if your av rack is near your TV, go with a HD DVD player.
  16. J

    I'm in dire need of help!

    yes you can use those speakers on another receier. You will need a different powered sub though. That one seems to be speaker level. HTIB are ok for people that ONLY watch DVD's on the screens. If you have anything else like the 360, iPods, CD players etc., you have no where to hook them up to...

    RG6 or 59?

    So it does work for the subs! Thanks! This is what is on the cables in my walls. i just now got to take a look, they have HD 59 on them with the words "High Definition" on them instead of the usual RG.

    RG6 or 59?

    What's actually better for component? I've been hearing different things from different people about these two. Can either be used for subwoofer cable?

    RF Extender?

    I'm considering that battery type convertor from Parts Express. It is stated to work with Harmony remotes so it should be no problem. It'd be cool to have the remote work from any room in my home. Just in case though, are those Powermids available at local stores or only online?

    RF Extender?

    Does anyone use IR transmitters or RF extenders in their theaters? I'd like to get on for my home since I will have the av gear in a seperate closet. Would this http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=180-827 work with a Harmony? Would it be better to use one of those IR Transmitters from...

    Homthtr? Need help

    I need help with terminating some component cables. I have several RG6 cables I want to use to run component lines through some walls. I'd like to know if I can get some good RCA terminals and use them for this? Is it hard to do? I need to do the same with a sub cable as well. Now that the audio...

    thanks! I'll get some pics up as soon as I move next month and get it set up. I won't have ALL the speakers in right away though. we have other priorities with the new home so you know how that goes. Little by little.

    whole house audio?

    First off mylan, don't put words in my mouth and don't think you know me. If I thought I knew more about this than Homthtr, I wouldn't be asking him. It just seemed funny to me that I'm trying to get the morons to fix it and Homthr seems just as upset about it as I do. So, don't be so quick to...

    whole house audio?

    Here's what I'm doing. I'm using the mono convertor from www.partsexpress.com for use with my iPod and as for FM stations, I just need to hit that mono button up front to hear the same signal on all speakers. I actually DON'T want stereo sound around the house because only the bedroom has twin...

    whole house audio?

    Ok guys. First Thanks a ton for your help! Now, the wires ARE correct! The areas with multiple speakers share one volume control. My bedroom has a 4 wire conductor coming in and two 2 wires. The only volume control box that has two 2 wires is the one in the bath (single speaker) and the hall...

    whole house audio?

    I'll check it out tomorrow before work. Now, for mono sound, could this work? http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=302-308 seems like I can jack in my iPod and listen to it over the receiver as planned

    whole house audio?

    well, I saw that the moron installer ran 4 wire to certain speakers but it's hard to see exactly where since the builder ahs everything covered up with wall plates until we close. This installer is contracted through my builder so we kind of had to go with him. as for the receiver, it's an old...
