    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Nifty setup I came across for those of us who prefer TVs instead of projector/screens. Its called Dream Screen and are LEDs you install on the back of your TV that emit whatever light/color is on the screen. It helps break up that contract when watching TV in the dark. I think it makes watching...

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    I am having a very difficult time finding a dimmer that is compatible with dimmable LED lighting and can be controlled via IR remote, so I can control them with my Harmony remote.
