Amplified Splitters vs Pre-Amps? by (PeteCresswell)

RG6: In-Line Connector Signal Loss by (PeteCresswell)
New thread for searchability by others who might have the same question. I'm going to re-do a rather heinous splitting scheme and am wondering if there is any profit in buying more cable so the runs are contiguous instead of joined in-line. i.e. Is it worth putting in 100 feet of new...

Is 1080p overkill for a 32" bedroom TV? by Bert[_2_]
Looking for a second TV, to be used almost exclusively for late evening viewing from bed. We only have space for a 32" HD set which will be viewed from a distance of about 12 feet. With a screen of that size viewed from that distance, would we see any real difference with 1080i satellite...

TV company recommends autoscan for cable by Novel8
Why would they recommend that..doesn't it depend on your cable plan and whatever you get is what is for that plan? So what good would autoscan do?

Monitor prices by [email protected]
Just wondering about something. I currently have a 24" Dell monitor and I was toying with the idea of a larger monitor, a 32 inch one. Just idle mind wandering. But when I started looking around, the prices scared me off. Why is it that I can find monitors up to around 27 inches for under $300 but...

Cox version of URC-8820 Remote? by Jim Thompson
I cannot get the _Cox_version_ of the URC-8820 Remote (made by UEI) to program. Cox "Support" is inhabited by slugs, and any question to UEI gets kicked back to "ask Cox" :-( (The Cox "documentation" is limited to device on/off numbers.) What I'd like to do is program "Power" to power-up...

Length of HDMI cable between set-top box and TV by Rebel1
The user manual for one of Vizio's TV says this about the HDMI connection between and HDTV set-top box and TV: "To maintain the display quality, use a VIZIO certified HDMI cable that is 10 meters." Normally, I would think that means 10 meters or less. However, a friend recently had a new TV...
