    Where the heck is Frederick??

    Hey Mike, Sent you a PM. Yeah, the past two and a half years have been a whirlwind. Haven't done much in HT but am planning on getting back into it. I hope the Austin group hasn't fizzled out. Hopefully we can get another movie night theme going this summer. Later, Frederick

    I am planning on being there and will bring the screen and hopefully my wife. I can bring my Sony DVP-S9000ES DVD/SACD player if you want me to. Hank, give me a call or send me an email and let me know if I need to bring the DVD player. Also are you planning on doing fajaitas tonight? Do we...

    I don't have a projector, but I do have access to a Da-lite screen that I can bring. It is very easy to setup and can be put practically anywhere. Here is a link to it.

    I am available for the 12th as well. Can someone tape StarGate SG1 and Atlantis for me though? Looking forward to seeing everyone again. It has been too long.

    Dave, Sorry I missed the event. Unfortunately, I had to go out of town to attend a funeral (death in family on my wife's side) on Saturday and I spent all day Monday working for the Fire Department. Hopefully, I will get the chance to make it over to your place in the near future. I have a...

    It appears that there will never be a good day for all to attend. Someone will have to miss. That said, unless there are a bunch of other people besides myself that will be missing this Saturday, I say go ahead and meet on that date. Another option would be to meet on a Friday evening. The...

    I just realized I already have something planned for the 25th. :frowning: What about the 18th? Is that date out? If so, I will just have to catch ya'll at the next meet.

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Jonathan, Okay, at first I thought this was a joke about the "gasoline surcharge" but now that you have posted it twice I see you are serious. I can't believe you are charging me 6 dollars to dive two miles down the road to pick up my ticket. Yeah, I know gas prices are high, but surely your...

    Just name a time and place and I will try and make it. Just remember weeknights are kinda bad for me if we are planning on staying up late as I have to get up at 4 AM the next day. Friday evenings and Saturdays are good for me. I will even host another party at my place and we can go play at the...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Scott and Hank, Melinda and I will join you on Friday night (excluding the drinking part) to watch Sahara. Gateway is a good choice. What time were you think of going? Where do you want to meet before the movie starts? Hank, You have my cell phone (the number you called me at last...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    MoG, I have installed or help install several projectors for our little Austin HT group as well as a couple of friends that are not members. I have the equipment to mount the projector, screen and run the wiring for the projector and the speakers. I can also provide you with some information...

    Hey Austin Texas Buddies? Can anyone help me out?

    If price is not an issue, I would definately look at seperates. On Video switching, if you plan to switch HD inputs, you will need at least 350 mHz bandwidth or you will have signal loss. Upgradability may also need to be a priority. I remember when we had the Pre/Pro shootout at my house...

    Austin - next HTF meet planning

    I would be more than happy to provide my Mac-mini for a HTPC shootout or demo. Jonathan, I have two meetings tonight that I cannot get out of so I will be unable to make it to your party tonight. Bummer. Hopefully I will be able to catch the next movie night at your place. Ya'll have...

    Hey Austin Texas Buddies? Can anyone help me out?

    Hey Mike, Did you ever get the M-Audio Transit to work with your Mac-Mini? How is it working out for you? Any problems worth noting? I am seriously considering getting one. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Austin DIY HT Projects

    Yep, that is the one. The sound is output through the USB and converted to the optical output which can then transfer the AC3 (Dobly Digital) or DTS signal out to your receiver which would then decode it. Sweet! What did you originally pay for yours. I paid 479 dollars and then upgraded the...

    Austin DIY HT Projects

    James, That is what is so cool about this system is that there is no need for a deinterlacer. The output is in Progressive scan mode and is outputed through the DVI output of the Mac Mini. You can then hook that directly to a DVI input on your TC or get a cable that has DVI on one end and...

    Mike, Did you get yours already. If so, I am jealious. I ordered mine the day they came out and the email said it would be shipped on or before the 21st. Still haven't heard anything else on it. I also saw a cool product by M-Audio that will take the digital audio out of the Mac and...

    Hey Hank, Question: Do you know where I can get some 3M Neoprene Contact Adhesive? I have a little project I am working on and one of the things on the material list is this item. Appreciate the help, Frederick

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Jonathan, I am the romantic in the family. My wife is extremely practical. Once I made the mistake of buying her a dozen roses and she was very upset that I had "wasted" good money on something that wouldn't last. Next time I just bought her a miniture rose bush. She would much rather have...

    Man, I got you all beat. I received a notice from Best Buy that for two days only you could get two years no interest on anything bought in the store totaling $399 or more (including gift cards) with no qualifing purchase! Well I went down and bought several DVD's (listed below and also...

    Austin - next HTF meet planning

    Darn, I already have plans for February 19th. I am good for the following weekend, the 26th, though. Hopefully we can get this one off the ground. I would really like to look (and hear) everything Colin has done to his room as it has been quite some time since the last visit I was able to attend.

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Hey Hank, Me thinks you have already been hitting the beer too hard if you are already saying goodbye to 05! It isn't even here yet! The last I checked we were still in 04! Sorry Jonathan, But we already have plans for New Years Eve. I would have loved to come over and shoot some pool...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Colin, Sorry to hear there wasn't any interest, or maybe tonight is just a bad night for everyone. For me, I have to get up at 4:15 in the morning for work so weekdays just don't work for me when it is a long movie. Especially since I live in the boonies. Friday night or Saturday night work...

    Austin DIY HT Projects

    Hank, I like the idea of a store owning the product and then letting us use it for a reduced rate. I would be willing to add to the pot as I would like to calibrate the projecters we have at church. We are also going to buy another projector as a confidence monitor for the people on the stage...
