      Thanks for ruining my morning.

      Up and Toy Story 3 both did it. Forrest Gump (when he is talking to Jenny's grave) got me.

      I find that since I have had kids, I am more susceptible to this...

      Definitely sounds like a phase issue, banana plugs will make no difference to sound unless the wires are badly corroded.

      They finally played a competitive match, which exposed the weaknesses in their players that were masked by friendlies. 3-5-2 needs elite, fast defenders at the back. United has none of those at the...

      There are a lot of elements in play here. I generally agree with what Henry has said- the Rotel is a superior product to the NAD/AudioSource combo you used to have.

      You aren't going to get much...

      Hopefully it will end with the three state solution it always should have been. Unfortunate that the cost of lives will be so high to make it so.

      I don't know anything about Harmony products, but if the remote is RF or IR only (meaning you can't tell it to do one or the other depending on the device it's controlling), you would need a wire to...

      IIRC from back in the day when I worked at a place that sold them, the only recommendation was to have them at least 3' apart. I would go next to the TV on either side, not out in the corners.

      Run the biggest conduit you possibly can between the TV and the equipment space.

      I would just run a single HDMI to the TV and switch everything through the AV receiver. I can't think of why you...

      As you note, your examples aren't relevant to the experiences most people are going to have in their own home. I would argue that the majority of the additional "detail" you're seeing is more a...

      Unless you sit really close to the screen (less than 8'), there is no value whatsoever to be had in a 4K set vs a 1080p set all else equal. The problem you are going to start running into is that...

      That doesn't make sense given his sources and testing he has explained, unless the cable box has variable out that is cranked way up, which would probably cause issues with all of his cable content.

      Vidal is a pretty good pickup for them, assuming that actually goes through. United need a CB, a holding midfielder, and another winger at least to get back into the top 4 next season, and that is...

      Not really. This comes down to the quality of the scaler in the individual display. Displays with poor scaling (most of the cheap stuff) are going to do a poor job of turning 1080p into the native...

      There is no way to use a 4K TV as a 1080p TV, it is showing all the pixels all the time. The source material is going to vary, but resolution is not always a reliable indicator of picture quality in...

      With current technology, virtually anything on the market will make an image that is acceptable with a good signal coming into it. The difference between a bottom-end Vizio and a top-end Sony or...

      You won't likely gain any improvement from using component video over composite, but theoretically it is possible and the cables are dirt cheap, so why not?
