I believe that is exactly what one installer was going to do. Hook up two antennas and have one pointed at each metro area. Maybe that's why he wanted $900 to do it.

But honestly my question isn't really about what I'll get reception wise, I do think I'm in...

I'm still getting my bearings as far as what's out there. This sounds like a nice step up from the LCD this thread is about. The price will probably keep me away, though.

My preference for Passive has nothing to do wit the picture quality but everything to do with convenience. I started with an active Sony 3D TV (which I still have.) It has a great picture, but the...

As a follow-up, I didn't have any luck talking to Panasonic. They said it likely needed repair, gave me contact info for a repair shop, and said I'd have to pay for it. I may try again to see if I...

I certainly plan to hold out for now until I find the right 4k Passive 3D TV. I have no interest in getting a 4k only or a 1080p Passive 3D. I want it to be both 4k and passive 3D.

I'd like to...

4k with PASSIVE 3D - What's the current tech/offerings?

I had no intention of getting back in the TV market. I was happy with my main TV, a Panasonic TCL-ET5 55" Passive 3d TV. Well, out of the blue the other day it developed horizontal black lines all...

Thanks everyone. I'm feeling much better about living with 3.1 for now until I can figure something out. Speaker stands might work in the future.

I will get some photos of the actual room soon to help. In ceiling speakers would probably be best for the wife, as well. So that may be an option! (It is not a drop ceiling.)

The left side of the couch is absolutely no problem. That's where there is that 4' ledge that the surround can sit on nicely. But that right side is an issue. I have a 3 year old, so a speaker stand...
