  2. Are sound bars replacing receivers

    AV Home Theater
    Are people now using sound bars instead of receivers with speakers? I have a Denon receiver I got over 10 years ago and was thinking of replacing it with a sound bar.
  3. Samsung HL61A750A1FXZA green bars

    I got this TV for free because it had the white dot issue. I replaced the DLP chip and the white dots went away, but then had green bars and shadows instead. It does this no matter what input is used, even in the menus screens. There's a couple capacitors on the main power board that are...
  4. What Is Up With Sound Bars?

    Home Audio Speakers
    I have been seeing all of these cheaply made, over priced sound bars everywhere and I don't know what people see in them. I want to get the best out of my music and movies and these are pretty gross sounding most of the time. What have the people of HTS to say about them?

  7. Dark Blue Side Bars ....WHAT DA?

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    Recently noticed the blank screen and side bars (including when picture is framed ratio) of our Sony KDF-46E2000 are dark blue instead of the normal black! With that said the picture is beautiful, sharp and colors are vibrant. Blacks are true black. Picture setting is default standard. What...

  9. Epson 6100: Tired of those stupid side bars on a "full screen" movie. What do I do?

    Home Theater Projectors
    I have an Epson 6100, PS3 and an Onkyo 705, 16:9 8ft wide screen. I have looked and looked for how to adjust the PJ so it doesn't show those horrible wide side bars when I play a "full screen" movie. I think there should be options from which to choose, right? It would be nice to have one set...
  10. 2.40:1 and black bars on plasma

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    I just got a blu-ray and realize that the majority of movies are in 2.40:1. I have a Pioneer PDP-5070. Most all of the high def material I've watched thus far has come from HD premium movie channels... not presented in 2.40:1. So, how careful do I need to be about black bars above and below...
  11. The Cadence CSB-F3 and CSB-R2 Sound Bars

    Home Audio Speakers
    Sound Bars seem to be filling a niche in the market place. Especially for those who do not really want speakers to become part or integral in the living space. Cadence, and relatively new player in the industry, has made a unique design for 2 channels, and a left-center-right bar. Cadence is a...
  12. HLR5067 vertical green (mostly) bars

    My 2 year old HLR5067 has been working just fine. Just recently on every input other than HDMI the picture looks like it is a very weak signal and the screen has 5 vertical bars, predominately green, evenly spaced across the screen. These bars are composed of several narrower bars. The color of...

  14. Best projector for Sports Bars?

    Home Theater Projectors
    Hi Guys. I'm not a HT expert by any means, I know if I wanted a projector for my home theatre I'd go with the Epson 1080p, but that's dark, ideal conditions.. So here's the question. I own a Sports Bar in Houston, and I want to be known as a "high tech" sports bar. One of the keys is servin'...

  16. Do you use shorting bars?

    Home Audio Speakers
    I do not have the shorting bars for one of my e60s Is it better to just cut short cable to jump the biampable speaker terminals together, also should I connect to the top or bottom terminals first?
