Today's Show:
Until recently, it felt like the weather was changing here in Southern California. We clicked over to daylight savings time; we had a few days of nice, sunny BBQ weather and it felt like the season of backyard movies was upon us. Since then it's gotten a bit gloomy again, but we always like to be prepared, so we've put together a list of screen options for you if you finally want to make the jump into outdoor cinema.

We also discuss:
  • How you can win a pair of Audioengine A5+ speakers
  • Six projectors to potentially use as HDTV alternatives
  • Software that lets Movie Theaters play 7.1 and 11.1 surround without adding speakers
  • Google Drive
  • IR Repeaters
  • Pioneer's new Elite AVRs
  • Epson's new PowerLite projectors
  • 20% US Households Have an Internet-Connected TV

and a lot more...

i would like to state that the local Backyard Theater enthusiasts have been enjoying the outdoor movies all winter as well! a lot of us in so. cal. have weathered the storms and still put on a show. sometimes for a party of 1! i know for some of the coldest days in december, we still had outdoor parties with attendance in 20's! lol.

you could also mention the benefits of buying screen material, building your own frame, and cutting the cost of starting a backyard theater by half! much of the equipment used outdoors is usually "left-overs" from slightly older systems. if you would like more information, you could visit us at backyardtheater.com.

Take it outside!

Ya, because one almost can't get a new TV these days without it, but I want to know how many ACTUALLY use it?

Solution: FREE. Explanation: I will have to charge$ you.
