    Cat5 vs. Cat5e - What is the real difference?

    both cat5 and cat5e only run at 100mhz. only cat5e+ runs at 350mhz. 5e is required for a gigabit network. cat6 is only proposed at this moment. there are cables and parts being built as we speak, but no big implimentation being done.

    my 42h82 has the same red shading on both sides, but i can only see it when the image goes completely black during a movie or tv broadcast. set convergance, calibrated with avia, moved speakers away, all with no luck or help.

    Dolby® Digital and Sound Blaster Audigy Connection ---> Please Provide Assistance!

    the audigy has a digital optical hookup on it if i remember correctly. you would need to buy a toslink cable and hook your soundblaster to your new receiver.

    I can't get my optical cables to fit in my receiver

    i would hook em up first, and see if you have any audio problems. if you do, try a super soft cloth and some rubbing alcohol. very lightly (or should i say extremely) buff the end of the cable. fiber is very sensitive to scratches and the such. HT gear may not be all that picky, but i used...

    Bridging & Sub Connection

    i think if you try bridging a stereo amp (not a car audio amp) you will probably fry it. home theater receivers and such are usually only designed to handle a certain load, per output.

    Problem with my Toshiba 50h82

    as far as i know, an unsheilded speaker has no effect on the picture of an rptv. i have 2 tower speakers next to my rptv (toshiba 42h82), both of which are unshielded, and i have no negative effects.

    I can't get my optical cables to fit in my receiver

    be sure not to touch the tip of the cable though. fiber optic cables are very succeptible to contamination, and a simple fingerprint can cut up to 45% of data transmission out.

    Can I substitute componet video cables for audio?

    yes they can be swapped out, just be sure to keep the ends correctly hooked up.

    CD player using digital out: player quality irrelevant?

    hmm, not real sure but i believe that the cd player then just extracts the data into a digital signal and lets the receiver do all of the processing, so i would say no. which if you are doing sacd or dvd-a though a dvd player, you must hook up the analog sources to process the sound at the dvd...

    true hd res

    and i doubt we will for a long long time. the majority of pc monitors out there wont even support that. and if they do, its at a very low, eye-straining refresh rate. personally i think it can only get so clear, then you get to the point of diminishing returns.

    DD on H/K 320 gives tinny voices

    there is your problem. most of the voices are carried through the center channel. very little of the voices in movies comes from the left and right channels. see if there is an option to mix them to make a "phantom" center or something of the sort.

    speaker wire

    for that lenght i would definately go with 12ga. and yes the cl rated wire is just for building code stuff. chris: i dont know about the part about laying the cable on the ground, but keeping it 3" away and making perpendicular crosses is correct. some wires are very easy to get crosstalk and...

    Take the $250 challenge -- can you suggest a system?

    i would go to walmart and see what you could find there. i think they have a philips setup for about $300 that sounds good for the money. 5 speakers, a sub and a receiver. for $400 you can get the panasonic one and it has a built in dvd player if i remember correctly.

    Ground-loop and satellite...How to fix?

    i have heard that you can take a 75ohm to 300ohm adapter (the kind that takes a f-connector and turns it into spades) and hook it to a 300ohm to 75ohm adapter (where you can hook up the spade type connection to a f-connector) and it takes out a ground loop. just hook your coax to the appropriate...

    video cable question

    you might want to check into an AR Pro cable, as the component cable in that series is better than just the regular rca video cables. plus, it doesnt cost very much more than the regular performance series. even more bang for the buck if you ask me.
