I am good with a saw and hammer - let me know when you are going to need help.

Tim will have to tell us what exactly is up but the new 2007 Analog Way literature list a promising new array of high resolution outputs for the DVX-8022.

I know there has not been a hardware change so I guess this is just a matter of a software download??

Mark,

This must be related to DOOR PRIZES!

Anybody else out there that would like to sponsor for the meet?? Alan Gouger? Anyone? Bueller?

Duly noted Mr. Jones.

The wife and I went through the final walk through of the new house tonight and it's looking awesome. I close next wednesday and to be honest, I CANNOT WAIT!

The only thing that I will have to make rule for the meet is SHOES OFF in my STABBIN CABIN!

Also, be prepared for your car to get dirty. The place is a mess from all of the construction but I promise this:

Plenty of GREAT conversation with good people and some pretty kick ass booze.

Congrats - I hope the building process went smooth and the closing is without event. Its so nice to have a brand new house, not to mention a blank canvas to build a theater in.

You got that right big dog. No doubt about it and thanks for the kind words.

I'm sitting here in front of my new monitors that I purchased to replace my 21" Trinitrons. They are the Samsung 20 inch 204B with a native rez of 1600X1200. I actually really like them a lot. The black isn't as good as CRT, but they throw a nice SHARP clearly detailed picture that for the price (I think I paid $219 each for them) ROCKS.

Dude I CANNOT stop thinking about this meet. We are going to have a BLAST. It's ashame that you have to jump in and out because from about 7PM and later, it's gonna be PARTY TIME.

I hope the mystery guest shows up. THAT WOULD BE DA BOMB!!!!

Guys,

The address for the meet is:

10393 Redwood Dr.
St. John, IN 46373

It's not on mapquest yet so I'm going to have to get another address that's in Mapquest and walk everyone in from there. I'll post EXACT directions and make it as easy as possible.

I cant wait until all of us are together. Saturday December 9th will be a day to remember for all of us.

Hopefully he can pick up some good tips!!!

Things are creeping up VERY quickly to the meet! I have a BAD FEELING that the picture is going to be THAT GOOD!

I will have to get some screenshots of my new OTA HD project that I setup this weekend. My Optoma H78DC3 on the Carada 9' wide brilliant white screen was bright and shockingly clear.

It was a whole new experience vs. playing .ts files which may have come from compressed sources or upscaled sources.

Don't tempt me big dog.

I thought I would be happy moving this time but I am miserable. There is crap EVERYWHERE and I CANT FIND ANYTHING. It wouldn't be so bad if this wasn't my second move in 3 months. All of my stuff that I packed 3 months ago was on the POD and all the electronics over at my buddies house so I'm pulling from multiple directions. It's put my mind to complete mush.

I have a butt load of stuff in the basement right now that I have to have organized by Tuesday because the drywall and wood for the theater is being delivered. As well, construction of the "partly" completed theater for the meet begins next week also.

One thing that is putting a smile on my face right now though..........

I'm looking at 2 freshly retubed G90's and 2 SVS PB12 Plus/2's that have been sorely missed.

I picked up a PS3 today so we'll be doing both HD DVD and Blue Ray for the meet. Arli (bomrat) is out in pheonix this weekend and stopped by Tim's today to check out the Blendzilla. Looking foward to his opinion..........

Hopefully the look on his face will be something like this:

Both of the G90's have been retubed now and the SMX Screen Material arrived as well. Once I get settled into the new house, we begin construction of the "make shift" theater for the meet. It's getting close.........

Guys!

Arli from Chicago dropped in for a visit with his pal Adam; Arli (aka Bomrat) is Cliffy's sidekick for setting up the Chicago meet coming Dec. 9th, so Arli was wanting to see some BlendZilla setup moves, we devoted about twenty minutes to setup. I will let Arli describe his impressions of an hour watching BlendZilla.......

Oh Yeah Baby, Broadband has Arrived.

I'm happier than a clam in s**t.

A pic of the new house at night:



View from the back of the new theater to the front of the basement:



The front wall of the theater will be in front of the furnace. Poses a bit of an issue for sound, but I think we can tame it........

Here is my make shift office:



Oh HELL YEAH!!!!!!!! Here are some of my PRIZE posessions:



My babies are tucked safely away for now but I couldn't resist pulling the 2nd one out tonight to test for operation after retubing the green. In front of the G90's are my Klipsch KLF30's with matching center channel and my SVS PB12/Plus 2's.

Yummy.

Cliff, great house... thats what I call brand spanking new!

I happen to notice the plumbing on your basement ceiling which looks very unusual compared to the houses in my neck of the woods. Looks like they've got the main stack running horizontal to your far wall instead of straight down into the ground. Cliff does your basement have other floor drains or do they just run the water heater overflow straight into the concrete? Because if you don't have any floor drains, I bet your basement concrete is a whole lot more level than mine. Could be they are building houses a little different today than when my neighborhood that went up 20 years ago.

Anyway, sorry to be off topic but I just had to ask cause the plumbing looks so different to me.
