I guess it's possible, although the box was in good condition, and the larger box that box came in was also intact. In contrast, I just ordered a cylindrical sub from SVS and the box was almost...

I like it. It's big, bombastic and fun. But I can't help but think of it as 'Last Resort's little brother, the JV to LR's varsity. To me, that was a much better show with a similar premise of a Navy...

Boy, if your display doesn't have great black levels, contrast, and shadow detail you might as well not bother with this show. If you don't have a Kuro or LHX, forget it. Or you'll be like Matt...

I can report that most of my problems here had to do with a defective AVR. The Marantz SR6007 I bought refurbished a year and a half ago has no working audio section. No HDMI audio, no digital audio,...

Does the Oppo have to be "on" for the signal to pass through to the AVR, or will it pass through in the "off/standby" state?

It's actually working now! I'm getting video passed through the AVR to the TV, by-passing the MB. The problem is no audio. But now I'm thinking that's the AVR's fault. I can't get any sound out of it...
