  1. Viewing saved peak data from RTA spectrum

    REW Forum
    I have saved RTA spectrum views with the SAVE button, and then these are saved in an *.mdat file, but I haven't worked out how to view this saved "peak data" again in the RTA, if indeed I can. There is a hint on p.158 of the PDF V5.19 HELP file "The saved measurements can be used as references...

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    I need to get a new display and am thinking of getting a 4K one from Samsung. I know that there is not a whole lot of content out there right now, though this display will hang on my wall for at least 5-6 years so I'd like to try to future proof it with 4K as much as I can. I do have a Sony...

    I am considering buying a 70" TV, and my main viewing distance is about 14 feet. Will this be to big?

    I lurked over at AVS for quite awhile but have just recently started over here. I currently have an old 65" Hitachi RPTV in our living/family room and was looking to jump on either the deals on the 65" plasmas out there now or possibly go with the 8350 + DIY screen for my everyday viewing. I...

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    We went to Paso Robles on Friday and visited the only THX Certified Theater in Central Coast Cali and here are my thoughts... We sat 3/4's of the way back and I sat directly center of the row, it seemed the front height channels were super hot or maybe that's the way it is in a real theater not...
  14. ESPN World Cup viewing study indicates viewers enjoy 3D more, ESPN 3D is 'on course'

    Testing
    ESPN picked today to release the results of what it's calling "one of the most in-depth studies on 3DTV to date,"and not a moment too soon, in the midst of a media frenzy over statements that its just-launched 3D network still has yet to see a return on investment. After conducting over 1,000...
  15. fixed mount vs articulating (to bring tv forward and reduce viewing distance)

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I'm considering an articulating wall mount to bring the TV closer to the seating position and reduce the viewing distance in my theater (bonus room). It's a 50" plasma with a viewing distance of about 12-13' from the wall, and I won't be able to justify buying a new, bigger TV anytime soon...

  17. 240Hz better for viewing your cable or satellite connection?

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    Hello, The rep at bestbuy said I would probably not notice much of a difference when viewing dvd's, blu-rays, etc..with a 120 vs. 240hz tv. However, they said the 240hz would be a worthwhile tv to get, even if I am not interested in 3D, because it may improve my cox cable picture quality...
