    Review of Dell 24 inch 16:10 LCD

    This is incorrect. I wish manufacturers would stop putting that spec on their boxes. That video card can actually go up past 1920 x 1200, just like all 6800 cards, or at least, every single 6800 card I've encountered.

    Review of Dell 24 inch 16:10 LCD

    Considering the 2001fp/2005fpw were $506.75 today, I don't think it'll be too-too long before the $1199 24" drops down to $800 or so after discounts. :)

    Anyone interested in Brand new Morel speakers?

    I'd be interested in the Integra Ovation 6 (a pair of car speakers). Please let me know. :)

    First, open up a folder, any folder. Click on Tools -> Folder Options Click on the "View" tab Click on "Show hidden files and folders" You should now be able to see those hidden folders and get to your hosts file.

    Rename your hosts file to host.tmp. It's probably here: c:windowssystem32driversetchosts Then, reboot.

    Are Dells quiet enough for HTPC?

    I wouldn't suggest the XPS, it's louder. The 8400 is a good choice though.

    Does anyone have the 20" LCD Dell monitor?

    I had a 2000fp, and now a 2001fp. Absolutely love it. The extra resolution over the 1280 x 1024 models allows me to get my work done faster. Definitely worth the difference.

    FS: Panasonic TY-42TM6D DVI Blade for 6UY and 7UY Plasma's

    I have a TY-42TM6D DVI blade for use with Panasonic's 6UY and 7UY series of plasma displays. I unfortunately bought an LST-3510A (with the new, even less compatible firmware), which is a great HD set top box, but it's one of two sources that seem incompatible with this blade (the other is the...

    What an incredible deal for this amp!

    To be blunt: Is there an affordable 42 inch HD plasma that doesn't suck?

    The problem with the $3500 budget is it's really inbetween two sweet spots. The majority of the 42" sets really should be low $2k, and the 50" start at $4k. I'd personally check out that P42HDe from Costco, or save up a bit more and step up to some of the 50" choices (if that'll fit on your mantle).

    10k tv?

    If you're going to go plasma, the Panasonic TH-65PHD7UY 65" is very very close to that price point now.

    OneCall and CC

    OneCall is an authorized dealer for everything they carry, but they don't carry a bunch of brands that people look for (ie. Denon, Rotel, NAD, etc).

    How long DVI cable?

    I'm using a 30'. The issue is length & bandwidth (resolution + refresh rate) vs cable quality, especially at lengths over 15 feet or so. The longer the cable, the higher the cable quality is necessary. Higher the resolution & refresh rate, same thing.

    LCOS HDTV Technology - any good??

    The Philips is a 1-chip system, but fewer people TEND to see rainbows with them because of their spinning prism color system instead of the spinning colorwheel with DLP machines. Some people still experience the rainbow effect, but it's reasonably rare.

    HDCP-DVI? Is it bad???

    Anyone here have a Panny 7UY series Plasma?

    Oh man, totally missed it, or I would have definitely gotten back to you. Is it still running? I have a JVC D-ILA projector in the theater room, but the Panny is in my bedroom. I had an Akai 42" plasma, then a 37" Panny 5UY, then the 42" Panny 6UY. The 42" 7UY I will only have for another...

    Anyone here have a Panny 7UY series Plasma?

    I have a TH-42PWD7UY, but I haven't tried S-vid yet (using DVI and component). I guess I can plug the DVD player into the S-vid slot and pull out the pluge pattern. It seems like a hit and miss sort of thing. Hey, you're in CA now?

    Hard to believe...

    FYI (from another forum), from SID 2004: From what I understand, the current generation of plasmas would be considered 4th gen or newer. From NEC (one of the better CCFL manufacturers for LCD), which seems to support relatively similar...

    Hard to believe...

    Almost all higher end LCD screens can have their backlight replaced, true, but at a cost equal or greater than a brand new replacement panel.
