  1. System Setup and Connection
    Hello all I'm wanting to put an LCD TV in our game room. I want to mount it on the wall and use the internal speakers. My question is.......where is a good place to put the sat receiver? I don't just want to "set" it somewhere. Where do most of you hide your components when mounting a TV on...
  2. System Setup and Connection
    Hello All, I currently have a 9 year old Hitachi 50" rear projection TV with Satellite TV. (I'm from Canada so it's Bell ExpressVu) I have a spare LCD computer monitor that I would like to use as a 2nd TV in my rec room. It has the regular computer connection and also a DVI connector on the...
  3. Home Audio Speakers
    From a recent thread I began in the HTIB section (see "small speakers/mid-size room"), it was suggested that I also look into various in-ceiling speakers instead of satellite speakers for a 5.1 system in my living room. Not believing I never really looked into this!! :duh: I hit the forum for...

    Hello all. I went out and got the Logitech Z-5300e for my PC. I'm wondering what I can do with the back speakers I don't wont to mount them to the wall. I think that would put the sound away from my ears. I would like information on a good DIY guide so I can just do a home project rather than...

    I'm curious,... why don't any of the cable or satellite providers offer a stand alone HD package? They all spout off about having 100 channels in HD, so why do they not have an HD package? Anyone else tired of paying for all that other junk? I'd be happy if I could hand pick 12 - 15 HD...

    We're in the process of building a dedicated Home Theater. We're also planning to buy a medium sized LCD TV to be put in a nearby den for casual watching. While I was pondering getting two Satellite boxes and the added one time and monthly expense, I thought of an alternative and wondered if...

  9. General Service and Technical Information
    I really hope that this is not an issue in other areas, but in Gainesville and nearby, I have repeatedly seen how sat installers do not ground their installations properly. There certainly are some professional, well trained, and thorough installers, but they are few around here. Every...
