    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    My SCD-CE595 won't read SACD's or hybrids. It will read red book CD's. I've cleaned the lens. I see the lens light up red. I presume the laser is ruby type. Can this issue be fixed?

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    Where do I start? :( I've been looking at the WDTV2 (Live) and asked a fellow TCA'er(?) his opinions about it. He pointed me to discussion threads, so I started reading/researching/planning/etc. I'm interested in ripping and storing all my DVDs and Blu-Rays onto a hard drive (already done...

    General Screen Discussion
    - When is a screen "flat enough"? I can't think of a good way to make a nice, perfectly flat screen that isn't either expensive or extremely time consuming. Is painting the wall or attaching laminate directly to the wall "good enough" or do you really notice imperfections in the image caused...
