Programming a Logitech Harmony One to control a LG NBN36 Sound Bar by Charlie Hoffpauir
I wonder if there is someone with a Harmony One who could give some pointers on how to set this up. The Logitech site (for setup) doesn't even list Sound Bars. I tried setting it up as a receiver, but that didn't work very well (really, not at all). It works fine using the LG remote, so it would...

hd roof top antenna by badgolferman
I'm considering ditching cable TV and going streaming and broadcast. I assume I can run the antenna feed to the same place where the cable connects into the attic. This will be good enough for all the outlets throughout the house, correct? My current cable connection requires a powered amplifier...

Silver Sensor by TeeJay1952[_2_]
I have had one of these arrow shaped $40 antennae for HD for about 10 or 15 years. I use it for a forth input or when Comcast takes the day off. While dusting the other day it fell so that it is sitting on it's base pointing up instead of pointing in a direction. All stations came in! No...

Video conversion by [email protected]
Is there a way or a program that will enable me to convert or transfer a DVD video to a wmv or avi format so I can put the video on a flashdrive? Okay, sounds like a dumb idea. But I'm not talking about a Hollywood produced movie on a DVD. A year or so ago I send some old video tapes and 8mm film...

LCD projection lamp life by tony
I may regret what I have done. I recently purchased a Sony 42" LCD rear projection TV. Nice set but The salesman did not tell me that the lamp might have only about 2000 hrs life. That's 170 days if used 12 hours a day. Damn...At a cost of $180, this means over $360 per year in lamp costs. Is...

3D TV question by [email protected]
Okay, I've had my new Sony 4K 3D TV for a few weeks now. I've only watched a couple of DVD's which involved space, like the space station. I enjoy the 3D, but what I'd like to know is will I ever see the type of 3D I've seen at places like Disney World where things just seem to leap right out of...

This is new to me... by [email protected]
But then, I'm behind the times nowadays. I just saw an ad for a device which plugs into a wall outlet and turns the two plugs into six, and also has two USB plugs. Apparently, you can send a USB signal through your household's electric wiring system????? And if this is the case, can I put one...

Sub-woofer placement by [email protected]
Anywhere, right? A big woofer came with my Sony sound bar and the best location I have for it is across the room from the TV and off to the side of the sofa. Does location matter with a subwoofer? Thanks.

Auto Scan Required by David Godbee
I picked up a Westinghouse LTV-37W2HD LCD TV at a garage sale for free. It would not power on. I purchase a new power supply ($20) and installed it which solved that problem. However, I have it hooked up to an HDTV antenna and each time I turn it on it prompts me with Auto Scan Required. It forgets...

Networking Question by [email protected]
Hopefully not OT as it involves a TV. I know nothing about networking other than I have a wireless router which currently is hooked up to a SOny Blu-ray DVD player and a Roku device, and also sends me a signal to my iPad. It was all pretty much plug and play. No problems. I have bought a Sony 4K...

Sound bar question by [email protected]
I just today became the proud owner of a Sony 4K TV. It's a thing of beauty. Anyway, as the sound comes out the bottom of the set, it's not great (the picture is to die for). So I'm looking at sound bars. The set is on a table stand, so I have no clearance to put a sound bar in front of the TV....

Uses for FIOS boxes? by [email protected]
I have HD FIOS cable service, three boxes, all without DVR. I had been using VCRs since the mid-1970s and kinda miss it that they achieved some very advanced specs before (with the obvious exception of Tivo) companies stopped producing them. I toyed with Archos before discovering (the expensive...

Wireless home theater? by [email protected]
I'm going to be buying a new TV, a Sony 65" 4K, the 850 model without the speakers on the sides of the screen as I don't have the room to accomodate that wide of a TV at 66 inches. I can handle the 58 inch wide no speaker set. For the past few years, with my 52 inch Sony Bravia, I have used a...

Recording 3D movies? by Patty Winter
A friend asked whether I could record a 3D movie from DirecTV for him. He apparently forgot that I have neither a 3D TV nor DirecTV. :-) But it got me wondering whether such a recording is possible with consumer-grade equipment. From what I've been able to determine with a little Googling, some...
