    Epson 5300 etc projector bulb.

    I sold this guy on ebay, but the seller never paid and I didn't want negative feedback, so I rolled over and didn't file a non-paying bidder complaint. Anyway, I've got this bulb here that goes into a Epson 5300 projector. Its also compatible with other Epson projectors, which ones I'm not...

    FS: Onkyo TX-8511 Stereo Receiver and speakers (MSP)

    I have an Onkyo TX-8511 receiver for sale. I upgraded to 5.1, so now this can go to somebody who appreciates stereo sound. I also have a pair of speakers to go with it, nice 2-way floorstanders. I don't know what to ask for, but let's throw out $95 for the receiver and extra for the speakers...

    FS: Epson PowerLITE 5300 $550

    I'm selling my Epson 5300. I've had nothing but great movies with it, and i think the contrast is pretty good for an older non-DLP projector. - LCD projector. - 800x600 native. - 1200 lumens. - Free air filter included. Asking $550 for the projector. I also have a second, new lamp that...

    Need a movie that i can't remember the name of...

    OK, i'm looking for a movie that was in the imdb bottom 100 list, but isn't there now. Its about a couple who live on an island or in the forest, and run around naked much of the time. They also watch each other pee in one scene, and its generally considered an obscene movie. To the best of...

    PSA: BenQ 6100 and 6200 are 2x, not 3x color wheel

    Sorry if this is stale news. I don't see this topic anywhere, and figured anyone looking for a projector should be aware of the false advertising done by BenQ. There's a thread going on at AVSforum about this right now... Anyway, the bottom line is that the 6100 and 6200 were marketed as 3X...

    Can a DLP RPTV be hung?

    What do you think? Can a DLP RPTV be hung on a wall like a plasma? If it can be hung, can it be mounted on an adjustable arm so it can tilt up and down? Inquiring minds want to know :D

    Anyone interested in building a sub in Mpls/Southern MN?

    Why has my Onkyo stopped working altogether?

    I use my Onkyo TX-8511 with my Merak MT-66's and my computer's onboard sound. However, my computer has been down for two weeks, and so i haven't been using the receiver at all. When i tried to switch it on yesterday, it wouldn't switch on. I heard a click, but nothing happened. There's a red...

    I think it was even in the bottom 100 of imdb for some time... you know the one i'm talking about, in which a girl lays an egg. There's also some other one, in which a girl and a guy are discovering each other, and its like Adam & Eve or something... I forgot the names of both these movies...

    Gattaca sunglasses

    Has anyone else seen the deal (i saw it in FHM), where you just pay the S&H for a pair of sunglasses, and they send you the glasses for free? It was a pretty nice tear-out full-page ad, and the website was given as www.gattacacorp.com . I checked out the site, and promptly had palpitations...

    Macs furthering the widescreen cause?

    Well, now that Apple announced a 17" widescreen 1440x960 display for the iLamp, in addition to the 15.2" WXGA (IIRC) resolution Powerbook display as well as the 23" HD Cinema display, do you think the HTF should adopt Apple computers as the poster child for widescreen? :D Personally i think...

    Every time you use a CD, someone knows!

    I was watching Screensavers yesterday, and found out that Eminem's new album was #2 on the digital charts last week, before it was released. Now we all know that's pirating, and pirating is bad, but let's focus on the CDDB... What is this organisation? Who runs it and how does it earn its...

    I Dream of Jeannie on DVD

    Does anyone know whether this excellent show is supposed to be released on DVD? I'd love to own it, and would snap it up as soon as it came out. I see I Love Lucy is out, so this one should also be released! Columbia are you listening?

    Costco vs Sam's Club

    I want to get membership of one of these clubs, and was wondering which one to get. Does anyone have any preferences against one or the other? I was thinking Sam's Club would be better seeing as how Wal-Mart is so much more established and bigger. No, i can not get membership of both! :D

    Chef's music is reallly nice - I've been "rewinding" the DVD's over and over to hear his songs - "I wanna make love to ya womman, wanna lay you down by the fiiyya..." :D Anyone know any good musicians like him? Preferably featuring similar content! ;) I hear Barry White is good, is he?

    Bring us the winky...

    Would it be possible to have the other type of winky - the standard, non-animated one? IMHO, it matched my mood sometimes, and it is always good to have some extra smileys... right? :D There, i've run out of justification. Excellent forum, btw.

    Amex blue smart card?

    What's the deal with the new and improved Blue CC from Amex? I see it has a chip inside, which basically makes it a smart card. Is anyone using this? I see on the website that it can be used with a reader attached to your PC. Is this even safe? Ohh wait.... the damn thing isn't available in...
