    I had a strange response from a Tech when I was picking up my Yamaha P7000s from Service today (for a failed Power Supply). The Tech asked me if I am leaving the gain controls up (since they were up when taken to the shop for repair), and I said yes, as it is in an active setup. He told me that...

    When reproducing digital files we often have to deal with 2 to 3 volume controls: 1) The media player (Windows Media, J River, Winamp, etc.) 2) The PC (in your Desktop Taskbar, not always the same as above) 3) The amplifier (receiver, active speakers, headphone amp, etc) Can anyone chime in on...

    One of our installers just got an iPad working with a Crestron. It was a bit of a learning experience, but was worthwhile. I would like to see more apps on Android, better integration with control manufacturers for both Android and iOS. The thing that makes this most appealing is the two way...

    Can somone, anyone tell me why game developers find it necessary to force us to use control layouts that THEY think are the right ones for us? How hard can it be to make ALL games with assignable controls? Shouldn't we have the right to play the games that we pay so much for the way it is...

    So... the Sales VP at my company is in the market for a new TV... the basic constraints are: Sony LCD, 46", under $2k... so I'm thinking KDL-46XBR9. That being said, I'm questioning (because I know he's going to ask) what makes it worth the upgrade from the Z5100, or even the W5100... Are...

    I just wanted a polling on how people either deal with their 5-6 remotes, or if anyone has found a satisfactory Remote that services their needs??? Frankly I have 3 'quote' universals, but none of them hold up. I'm sick of paying $100-$150 for a remote that only really works on 3 devices...
