LCD TV vs. TV Card/PC/TFT by Gelf
Any thoughts on this, strictly in the context of small screen LCD, ie 15"? I had a Samsung 15" LCD TV for a while, probably 2002 vintage, and the picture was pretty awful. It was as if there was no depth to the picture, like coloured paper shapes stuck on top of the screen. Interestingly, when I...

TOSlink splitter by Turbohat
Is it feasible to connect a TOS-Link splitter in reverse. I.e. Instead of connecting one source to two receivers (as the specs usually say on these things), is it possible to connect two sources to one receiver?, eg an XBOX and a DVD player? Cheers
