    FYI: For those interested, I created a webpage with 17 digital images from my new $2,075.00 (Free Shipping, no CA tax) Toshiba 50H81, including 3 images from a random TV commercial/news via an outside TV antenna.

    Looks great. Nice system all the way around.
    BTW, I LOVE the Alvarez. I bet it has a great sound to it. I used to own a Tacamine 12 that I really miss. Did you ever get to see Segovia play live? I was really fortunate to be able to not only see him but meet him back stage. What a character.
    No, I am not a guitarist by any means. I used to try to but never could play very well.
    At any rate, very nice setup. I know you are enjoying it.
    BTW, image links back to geocities accounts won't work. They block them to keep down on bandwidth.

    Thanks Parker - didn't know about GeoCities bandwidth / blocking thing.
    Anyway, for those perusing this thread - go to my Main Homepage, and click on the right 50H81 picture Graphic near the top.
    quote: . . . Alvarez. I bet it has a great sound [/quote]
    It does - the Rosewood sides and back contributes to the incredible sound and depth when I play it. It's been a while, so maybe tonight, I'll play a few songs I wrote and practice "Classical Gas" - solo version on Mason Williams Handmade album!
    quote: Did you ever get to see Segovia play live?[/quote]
    No, I didn't, . . . my wife said we were probably too young to notice his scheduled concerts, when he visited the SF Bay Area back in the 70's.
    But I did see one of his students @ Reno 3 years ago - - - Charro! She's funny as usual but her guitar skills are outstanding!! She's a master guitarist, thanks to Segovia!

    I always wanted to play Classical Gas. It has always been one of my favorite guitar pieces.
    I have a recording of Segovia and Al Di Meola. Segovia on the left channel and Di Meola on the right. You can imagine what that was like!

    Well,I think this looks like it might just be the set for me!I have to wait a few months but I am sure it will be well worth that wait.
    The set will be used in my bedroom and my bed will be the main seats.I took some measurements and it will fit perfectly between 2 closet doors.Only concern I have is that I will have to build some sort of a small stand,mabey 6" or 7" high...see any trouble with that?My bed just sits pretty high and I do not want the foot board or my feet getting in the way of the screen.
    Thanks again for listing the info.

    Phil, I envy you. That is an outstanding set in an outstanding setup. I wanted to go bigger than to be delivered this Thursday Panasonic 47" HDTV, but it was as big as I could get into my pad. The old house has doors so narrow, well, it causes problems. [​IMG] So I spend about the same amount of $$$ on a set that is smaller than yours. Bummer on me.
    But I suppose a 47" 16x9 HDTV is better than a 36" 4:3 STDV. [​IMG]

    Phil,I would probably just make a frame of 2x8's and run 3 or 4 through the middle for support.Cover the top with plywood and mabey carpet it or paint it.It will have to be a bit deeper than the tv I guess so i can pull it out to get to the back panel.

    Phil: I'm guessing, but I think he means using a universal remote to power on and select a specific input on the TV rather than toggling through the input selections.

    John Morris - thanks for the guess. Then, the answer is still YES!
    The only mode I have not programmed into my two One4All Universal Remotes yet is the PIC Sizes
    Normal (4x3 w/side grey bar)
    Theater Wide #1
    Theater Wide #2
    Theater Wide #3
    Full
    Maybe sometime this weekend. If I can't figure out the code for my Cinema 7, I'll learn it in my AV Producer 8 remote.
    Otherwise, the Input button that worked for my 1995 Toshiba 35" TV works with the 50H81, and what's new with the 50H81 system, is that each Input is assigned a Number, i.e.;
    0: ANT 1 (Outdoor TV Antenna)
    1: VIDEO 1 (Panasonic VHS)
    2: VIDEO 2 (Pioneer LD)
    3: VIDEO 3 (my son's Playstation 2)
    4: ColorStream HD1 (Panasonic DVD-RV31K)
    4: ColorStream HD2
    6: ANT 2
    Select the programmed Input button,
    . . . get the above display,
    . . . . . . press the #(option) you want,
    and your there!!
    Phil
