Hello... professional video editor... photographer... camera operator... pre-production, field production, post production, any production you name it... I did it at one time or another. I have always had a love for movies. My home theater consist of the following...
60" Panasonic Viera ST60 plasma... love it!
PS4 as my gaming and Blu-ray
Onkyo TX-SR606 (yes I had to fix the HDMI capacitors) set up with 5.1 sound
Mirage Nanosat L,R,LB,RB,S and Polk Audio center channel.
Oh... and I love Jeeps.
Hello Scott and everyone. I am not much of a forum guy but found this one and discovered how informative it is. I stumbled upon it as I was doing research on the Samsung UN65HU9000 4K UHD 3D curved TV. I am now the proud owner of one and just got it installed. Now I yearn for knowledge & tips on optimizing the display quality.
Since my entire 36 year professional career has been in IT, I also love computers, servers, etc.
Another passion is continually learning about technology, tips, and experiences with setting up infrastructure that allows for music and video streaming.
Thank you for allowing me to join this group. I'm anxious to share my experiences and learn from others as well.
Hi all, new forum member. Designing the pre-wiring for what will be a home theatre in a spec house that is being built, so just trying to learn as much as I can about home theatre design, layout, etc.
Will spend the next couple of days viewing forum discussions and then will post a sketch and ask for some constructive feedback on my design.
Thanks in advance, Stefan.
Hey everyone… new to boards and glad to be here and hopefully add some points and information to the boards.

Hello everyone, I'm George. Retired Disabled USAF Vet who volunteered (enlisted) in 1972 and served in Desert Shield/Storm. Been out a while now (since 1995) and currently own a Mitsubishi WD-65735 DLP TV. I just had the white dot issue fixed for free by Mitsubishi, they covered the chip, labor, and had the tech come to my home to do the job (about 30 minutes total). Very happy with the AWESOME 65" crystal clear and sharp image that its had for almost 5 years now (minus those bugs and white dots). Thanks for having the forum, it has been invaluable in finding the fix, and free resolution, with Mitsubishi!
Hi, sorry for my bad english. I'm here to share my love for home theater system and my knowledge!
Please feel free to ask me everything, I'll try to answer the best I can!
I am here cause I love amazing sound and wanted to become part of a community so I can learn from and also share what little knowledge I have in the AV world.
Last year I bought an Yamaha Aventage 720 Receiver to replace my old RX-320 I believe it was. Now I am looking into setting up a true 5.1 system and replace my 2 Polk R-50 floor standers. I will be listening to some music on these but mainly for movies. I am A HUGE Star Wars Fan :). Thanks for creating this community and I am sure I will be getting to know you all as time goes on.
Just wanted to pop in and say hi. I look forward to the wealth of info here! Hopefully I can get some help building my new Home Theater!
i'm italian and i'm waiting the sony 55'x9005b .. tomorrow it will be come in my house :D
Hello, I am joining AVS because sometimes I read a message that I would like to post a reply to and add my 2 cents worth... I am a retired tech for avionics in the military and mail processing machines in the postal service. I enjoy free to air satellite, internet streaming devices, in home streaming over my network, and cord cutting in general. Currently, I am experimenting with HD TV Antennas. I have a Fracarro LP-345F, an HD-Stacker, a 91XG, and an original channelmaster 4228. I modified/reinforced the reflectors on both the 91XG and the CM-4228 with the addition of 1/2 inch steel mesh. That 5 dollar mod gave me added sensitivity and a better front to back ratio on each antenna. I receive TV stations from 3 markets: Fresno, Sacramento, and San Francisco. I get around 40 to 50 channels in each market area. The distance to my Fresno stations is about 70 miles, my Sacramento stations are from about 90 miles away, and the San Francisco stations are about 105 miles away. My next project is getting my best antenna over 40 feet above ground.
I'm a long-time gamer that's obsessed with having a "cinematic" gaming experience- big TV, surround sound, etc. I'm currently looking into getting a gaming PC that also doubles as a HTPC. Everyone on this forum has been extremely helpful thus far- I think the AVS forums are a fantastic resources for novice home theater enthusiasts like myself!
Good day all, just joined to get more information on the Optoma ML500.
Got a unit for free because it had issues and being a computer geek, everyone dumps their hardware at my place for me to fix and enjoy.
I am a home owner remodeling a bathroom and want to install two speakers and a subwoofer that I happen to have on hand to a old Sony receiver.
I have a Sony STR-AV320 am/fm receiver with A and B speaker outputs. I connected two in wall JBL SP6C speakers to speaker A outputs (left and right). I then connected an Acoustic Audio HD-S8 in-wall subwoofer to the right channel of speaker B. When I activate both speaker A and B I receive audio out of only one of the JBL speakers and audio out of the subwoofer. I I deactivate speaker B I lose audio in the subwoofer but now both the left and right speakers connected to speaker A outputs are emitting audio.
How do I get audio simultaneously out of the two JBL speakers and the subwoofer speaker? Thanks for any help you can offer.
I'm from the UK, but have enjoyed reading the forum for a while now and have learnt a lot. I'm not a techie so rely a lot on the people who know more than I do, but love AV kit and what it does. My current system comprises of:
Cambridge Audio 752BD
Sky + HD
Tannoy Arena 5.1
The Panasonic has been professionally isf calibrated.
From Philly just a newbie and about to start build a simple home theater system.
I live in Norfolk, UK and I look forward to becoming an active member of the AVS community. I enjoy seeking information and advice on all things related to TV audio and video and sharing my experiences with technology.
Hello guys i am Andreas and i was just searching a problem of my projector and this looks like a really good site so i decided to sign up!
Since a few years I search a projector, now unable to purchase an Optoma HD23, which I hope will arrive this week.
I bought the Optoma because I think it is a good bet in 2D (I do not enjoy 3D movies)
I am preparing my audioroom to put the projector, at this moment I'm researching which screen should I get.
And this is what led me to join this forum.
Hi Everyone! Thanks for the warm welcome, Scott.. I'm in the Buckeye State!
I live totally off the power grid. Have been since '89 and ain't never gonna change. My shack operates totally on 12 v.d.c.. I avoid inverters at all cost. Everything I use on a daily basis runs directly from my battery. (8 - Surrette S-600's) I have 512 watts of solar panel that serves me just fine..
I love music and speakers! I build all kinds of crazy audio stuff that operates from some kind of battery. I have tunes everywhere! In the kitchen, In the bedroom, On the porch, Portable set-up for outside, ect..XM and I yardcast with a Ramsey FM Transmitter for tunes at the fire pit..
I have an LG projector in my living room that give me a 74" screen with surround sound. DVD player (HDMI) and audio via a Jensen Motor Home head. The projector has a digital tuner connected to an antenna system. Work fine, last long time..
See ya'll around the campus..
Hi - long time reader and finally joined. I look forward to interacting more now that I am a member. I am mainly a 2 channel guy with interest in home theater (mainly to avoid going to the movies and paying outrageous prices for the tickets and snacks while having to put up with people taking phone calls during the movie!). See you all around.
I'm an intermittent audiophile - when time permits! Anyways, I was stumbling across these forums as there is much interesting info and miles of information & comparisons.
Current system is a pair swan d2.1se with pioneer 1222k AV with class D. Definitely looking to pick up a center d1.1sec and subwoofer(s) in near future. Gotta love this stuff.
Hello everyone and thank you Scott for the warm welcome. I'm just beginning to get my feet wet with shooting video on a professional capacity, as well as editing, audio mixing, and other odds and ends. I happened to stumble upon this page in search of information regarding the difference between recording in AVCHD or MP4.
From what I've read so far on this forum, I'm glad I have found a place on the internet where I can rely on the information being exchanged/posted about things of this nature.
What I'm working with equipment wise: Canon XA20, Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, and currently taking suggestions for a solid PC based audio editing program (Premiere Pro is handling it ok for video purposes, but I'm also in the works of setting up a home recording studio with a client so I'll need something more geared towards music).
I'm working on gathering as much information as possible to put to good use, so thank you all for your help in advance!
