Do you have the X1 remote that communicates via RF? It "talks" to the X1 box over radio frequencies and will control other components like TV and an AVR using IR. The RF capable remote is silver, not...

I considered the same thing a couple years ago, ( item 1, above) but instead went with the Anyroom DVR and two Xi3 boxes. (I also had four DVRs with CC's 'old' system to allow live-TV buffering in...

Thanks Guys,

I've found both the Invisidoor and Murphy door sites, and some YouTube videos. I'm kind of surprised that there are not more examples on this forum, since its a really neat idea for...

Hidden or Secret Entry Door

Hi guys,

I've had my dedicated HT for more that an a decade and always wished I had built a hidden entry door at the beginning.

The opening is 48" wide and has a double door configuration...

The issue was resolution indeed. Both older displays would resolve 1080i, but not the 1080p that my 'new' X1 cable box was feeding them. I re-set the res on the cable box to 1080i and all is good....

Hi,

I've had a RS46 for about a year now and watch a good bit of 3D on it. Given that my HT is a bat cave, I've been pleased with the PQ in 3D. I run mine on a Silverticket AT 120" screen and it...

As I recall, THX is verification that the gear can provide a certain level of volume to a room of a specific size. Doesn't have anything to do with sound quality, just volume.

Hi. I've owned all of the Onkyo processors from the 885 to the 5508, now. The 886 was a big increase in sound quality from the 885, as I recall. The 5507 offered better Audyssey capability, which is...

There is a link in this thread that allows you to type in the serial number and find out if the unit is covered. Seems like I posted it once, so you may want to search by my user ID to find it.

At your size, the costs of a PJ and screen start to stack up well against a larger flat panel TV. A 70" or 80" flat panel TV may give you a better picture at around the same price.

A good rule of thumb for screen vertical position is to position the screen so 1/3rd is below eye level and 2/3rds is above. Too high (ala above the fireplace) and the viewers' necks get sore. Too...
