Stupid Sound

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

Stupid settings. FYI, if you have difficult to listen voice audio on your surround sound setup, change the mode STEREO to PLIIx C. Too bad I didn’t fix it until after D$ & Clew left. Classic MacGruber.

Teeebbs hot movie recommendations

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

Teeebbs, I don’t like where are little exchange is heading if the future contains more of this: Action flicks for kids movies! Are you taking my FF team persona personal? I can switch to the Clew “Man Stalker” pic that graced the polar bear club T if it’ll remedy the situation.

Remotes

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

I know Teeebbs is in the market for a universal remote so I’ll drop a quick post about the one I have. My remote is a Harmony 550 that I use to manage 4 devices.  My folks have a 550 too that manages 4 devices that replaced 3 remotes. To setup, the remote plugs in […]

Popcorn Hour A-110 Review

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

Teeebbs, Engadget HD talks about their upcoming review of the A-110. Its in the first 5 minutes of the podcast. I tend to agree with them that it is a hobbyist’s box but with Swiss Army style features for a media streamer. Its probably right up your alley. YAMJ is the movie jukebox you saw […]

PC Speakers

Monday, January 19th, 2009

Well, I think my old Boston Acoustics BA635 PC speakers have finally crapped out (there might be something dead inside of the sub). So even though I am completely out of money, I am in the market for some new speakers. I’m looking for a 2.1 system (two speakers and a sub) under $100 that […]

Decision Made

Thursday, August 28th, 2008

I broke down finally. I succumbed to the shame Strokker applied so harshly to me this past weekend. “We can’t watch movies?” he said. “You don’t have a DVD player?” he said. Problem solved. Thats it though. Time to tighten up. No more big ticket items for many months.  I slipped when I sold some […]

Just In Time For Football

No more OTA antennae for me! DirecTV is adding HD locals for my city. Take that in the butt Comcast.

Network & Streaming

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

My DirecTV HD-DVR will stream movies if hooked up to a network (wired.) Since my DVD player died in the move to the new crib, I’ve been looking to just network the DVR and stream my content instead of buying another DVD player. Also, the roommate has been begging for a way to network the […]

HDTVs getting ready for a big price cut

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

I know Clew is in the market for a big TV, I don’t know if anyone else is though. Prices are getting ready to drop $400 so wait just a little longer. On that link, there is a list of model #s. You’ll see the Sharp Aquos 52″ 1080p HDTV model #LC-52D64U for $2700. The […]
