    I must say that I am disapointed with this forum. If you look at the number of views vs. the number of replies... well it's sad. I have only post one question (100 views vs. 0 replies). So I was thinking maybe mine was a dumb question (but this is a forum... right). But when I checked all the other questions it's not much better.

    Maybe there are many of us that are seeking info and not many who have info.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be a trouble maker, but the numbers speak for themselves. Most forums I have tapped into will average about 5-15% of the people viewing will reply.

    So now my question is: Anyone know of a good source for Home Theater and other low voltage wiring infomation??

    My guess is that the people didn't know the answer to your question and instead of filling the thread with pointless "You got me" answers they just go on to the next.

    When I first signed up I used to respond to the majority of the posts I read regardless of whether I had anything interesting to say but now I do much more reading. I know a thing or two about wiring, but any attempt to answer something specific about a product that I don't own would just be a waste a everyones time.

    You should really try out the Search function available on this site. I've learned quite a bit by researching old threads.
    A quick search on "low voltage wiring" lead me to several threads, including this one which may help you out:
    "Good Site for Total House Low Voltage Wiring"

    most of them view the thread so they can learn by reading the aswers someone posts,but if they dont know the question they will most likley not aswer.

    If someone knows the question,im sure they would of answered.

    When i post,sometimes i get no replies and then sometimes i get heaps of replies,depending on the question.

    Myself,i wouldnt know anything regards to your question,but some1 might,just might take some time...

    I think one of the keys I notice on another forum which I am a more frequent contributor is the question asked. Specific question will get specific answers. But if you are too vague you get little response.

    Low voltage wiring? What application? Low voltage control? lighting? Networking? Automation? See what I mean.
