    The rules of HTC (Home Theater Club):

    Rule #1: You will NOT buy Bose!

    Rule #2: You WILL NOT BUY BOSE!

    Rule #3: If this is your first HT, you must watch one great classic film every six months (preferably something over 20 years of age).

    Rule #4: If someone says turn it down, turn it up.

    Rule #5: A battle of the woofers must take place every Thursday. Minimum of two subs to a fight, please. Maximum of 100 subs allowed.

    Rule #6: If a sub bottoms out, or blows a driver, the other individual whose sub(s) is/are still in working condition wins.

    Not to detract from your rules. But I made some of my own.
    1st RULE: You do not talk about MAR
    2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about MAR
    3rd RULE: If a mod closes a thread or a "thread killer" posts, something covered in the FAQ the thread IS over
    4th RULE: The more people in a thread the better
    5th RULE: The more threads the better
    6th RULE: No shirts, no shoes, who cares it's the Internet, for all we know people post naked [​IMG]
    7th RULE: Posts will go on AS LONG AS they have to
    8th RULE: If this is your first night at Home Theater Forum, you HAVE to post

    9-You must know the model number of every piece of gear in your system.

    10-You must make 1 OAR convert per week.

    11-You may make user-menu picture adjustments during a movie, but only while paused for a potty break, and you may only deviate from AVIA calibration by a maximum of 3 "clicks" per menu item. Under no circumstances may you enter the service menu during a movie.

    12-A panel of HTF administrators may make surprise visits to your home at any time to inspect for non-oar software, which may be confiscated without recompense.

    13-Use of stretch modes for 1:33 material on 16/9 displays is strictly limited to over the air, cable, or satellite presentation of news,soap opera, or "reality" programming, and is strictly prohibitted for all other programming and all dvds of material which was originally shot in 1:33, including material that was originally shown on television in that aspect ratio.
