    Best soundbar?

    I have a Sonos Arc with Sub and it sounds fantastic. I grew tired of receivers, speakers and wires but obviously I want good sound. Looking to upgrade, or downsize depending on how you look at it, I started researching soundbars. While nothing can top a full, thought out home theater, certain...

    SIRIUSXM: Still Lazy After All These Years

    XM had a free weekend apparently over the 4th. I listened to it for a bit and it was the same old song and dance. I was a subscriber for about 2 years. While I enjoyed a few of the stations, the quality was trash. It was so compressed that it was hard to listen to. Some channels sounded...

    3D Poll: Will 3D at Home Make a Comeback?

    I don't think it'll make a comeback. The TV industry seems to be focused on 4k as a selling point now and the features that go with that, like HDR. I remember 3D in the home being a similar focus a few years ago. I think what happened with 3D is it left a bad taste in people's mouths...

    Major Richard "Dick" Winters has died

    The man is worthy of the Medal of Honor for his actions on D-Day. It's a shame that it has never been awarded to him. May he rest in peace.

    Twilight Zone to be one of Images first HD DVD/Bd releases

    I already own the all of the definitive sets. I don't see what this series has to gain from being released in HD. The current sets look great and are more then good enough for something as old as The Twilight Zone. I know some people would like to have them in HD, but as for me, I won't be...

    A Conversation with Universal Studios Home Entertainment

    I haven't bought a combo yet and probably never will if the cost does not come down to what a standard HD DVD is. I'm not paying more for something I'm never going to use. The discs are expensive enough as it is. 90% combos is a bad move for Universal. I'd say for every person who likes the...

    HD-DVD Copy Protection what?

    It was only a matter of time obviously, but I think they're pretty safe for now. As has already been said, the file sizes are way too big for the average pirate and the cost to duplicate is too high right now. I'm sure the cost of equipment and blank media will remain that way too for at least...

    2001: A Space Odyssey and The Shining in 1:78:1 are my main wants after seeing them on HDNet Movies a few months ago.

    Why aren't you waiting for Blu-Ray/HD-DVD to buy?

    I bought recently a new receiver to replace a 4 year old Yamaha that was very nice when it was purchased. With all the devices these days basically requiring component inputs I needed something to switch them. Looking at straight out component switches, it became clear I would save money by just...

    Hardware Review HTF REVIEW: Harmony 880 Remote

    I checked a thread over at AVS on the subject. Turns out the battery wasn't making contact. I had to put a couple pieces of paper in it to make the battery make contact. Not what I would expect from a $200 device. Oh well, it all works now.

    Hardware Review HTF REVIEW: Harmony 880 Remote

    I just bought a Harmony 880 today. How long does the initial charge take? I've skimmed through this thread but haven't seen a definitive answer to this. I've had it sitting on the cradle for about 5 hours now it when I pick it up it does nothing. I can use it while on the cradle however. I hear...

    Most HDTV owners clueless?

    Yes, most people don't have a clue and simply do not care if they have a clue or not. These aren't the people that will tweak everything in their system to make it look and sound better. Home audio and video is not a hobby for them so it gets he least amount of attention to other things in their...

    Why does Eric Bana keep getting work in Hollywood?

    I thought he was awesome in Black Hawk Down. He played it like a real soldier. Just do what you can and at the end of the day that's all you can ask for.

    Quick X-Files Guide Please

    It doesn't start going down hill till after season 7 as far as stand alone episodes go. Season 5 is one of the best. It has Bad Blood (my favorite) and The Post Modern Prometheus. Those are in my top ten. Seasons 6 and 7 aren't as good as 1-5 but they have some very good episodes...

    X Files Season Sets: Worth an Investment?

    I just managed to get all nine seasons for about $300. That's about the most I was willing to pay too. When you look at it though, your getting over 6 days of entertainment out of it, which nobody would be able to watch in sitting, so really even $500 would be fair. If FOX would just lower the...

    Digital Eyes Question

    Digital Eyes is awesome. I order all my stuff from them. The main thing I like is the frequent buyer points they have. After you buy so much you can apply our points for $X off an order. It really helps if you buy a lot of movies. Also be sure to see if they have any coupons running when you...
