    Xbox HD Scaling on DVDs and other sources

    Joe, I am using the latest version XBMC that was released on 01/02/2004. 720p and 1080i works fine and stable. Better quality than the 480i on the Xbox. Controlling the DVD with the remote or the controller is another story. XBMC is still not complete but its 720p and 1080i modes are working...

    Xbox HD Scaling on DVDs and other sources

    Currently testing 1080i scaling on the Xbox with DVD playback using XBMC (Xbox media center) and so far so good. 720p scaling on my Sony G-420s monitor also looks great. Anyone who had more experience on this?

    The "lighter side" of HT with Halen!..

    Is the display of the receiver displaying any numbers that are counting down or do you here any ticking noise? I suggest you stay close to that receiver and surprise you. :D

    I use Ken's VGA adapter (transcoder) which can be found here. Try and email Ken and ask questions. You might have to wait one to two months thought in order to receive your order. PQ is like the dreamcast vgabox.

    Questions about RPTV, HDTV, and XBOX

    Watching 50-60hrs per week is WOW! I just bought my first RPTV (46WT500) as well and I am a little concerned with burn-in. Just calibrate your set with S&V or AVIA and you should be fine for many years to come.

    Opinions needed for KP-46WT500 and KP-51WS500

    I have the KP-46WT500 (Mfg.03/2003) and I agree with what been said by the owners above. Great PQ, tweaked with S&V and red push. I would say wait for the new model since this set converts 720p to 480p and not to 1080i if that is important to you. The new model, 46WT510, will convert 720p to...

    I bought a Panny S35 DVD player, but I'm not getting 5.1 DTS or DD sound!!??

    Are you pressing "display" on your DVD remote? If so, and 2.1 DTS is displayed on your TV, then you are playing a DVD with a 2.1 soundtrack. What DVD are you trying to play? Does 2.1 DTS encoded tracks exist? I thought that all DTS are 5.1 but I may be wrong.

    I bought a Panny S35 DVD player, but I'm not getting 5.1 DTS or DD sound!!??

    Press "Surround" in your remote while playing the "DTS" or "Dolby Digital" tracks. If that doesn't not work, try pressing "A.Surr" or "DSP". If your press "stereo," your will only get 2.1 sound even on DTS and DD. I also have the Onkyo HTS 650 system.

    Is it safe to use these speaker with my receiver?

    Thank for the input. I would also like to use Speakers A and B at the same time. I think that would be a little risky. The Sony speakers are full range. I will take your warning and won't play them loudly. My preferred listening volume when watching movies and music is around 60-65.

    I would like to try and add the two speakers of my Sony MHC-C90 mini hi-fi, that was bought 10 years ago, to my Onkyo HT-S650 htib. I will be connecting them as Speaker-B. Specs: Rated Impedance: 6 ohm Max Input power: 200w I think these speaker are 3-way. Are they safe to add these...

    When was your Sony RPTV manufactured? I just one two weeks ago (manufactured Mar2003) and so far no flicker. I am really worried that I will get it too. I thought I have avoided it by staying away from the 51WS500.
