I stuck with free programs for the longest time, just because I didn't want to spend the extra $50 or $60 or whatever when there were good free options. I finally wanted to enjoy the east of...

I'm thinking the only thing that may be in my future is one of those NUC boxes running XBMC. Will that handle all audio formats? What about 3D?

What has been holding back the Android boxes? HD Audio? I know some of them accept more file formats, but do they all just have limitations still?

After reading up a bit on the FireTV, I can see that, as expected, it doesn't really care about local streaming.

When I first joined the enthusiast crowd here for streaming a couple years back, I...

I do like the looks of those polks. I'm sure the wife would approve. They MAY be a little pricier than I wanted, though. I will certainly keep them in mind as an option. Do I need to buy mounts...

About two years ago, I put together my first surround set up with the Andrew Jones set along with the Energy 10.3 sub and a Denon AVR 1613. I love it, but have two regrets. I wish I had gotten a...

So I found out a little late that he actually has the Roku 2 HD, which does NOT have a USB port. (At least I didn't see one!) It does have a slot for a Micro SD I think it was, can you use a 32GB or...

I actually have my own collection ripped to ISOs, but I figured the Roku was likely limited in what it could play locally. I planned all along to use a more compressed format for his videos. After...

I wouldn't expect either to do a very good job with streaming. They just don't want to have any mass market box that potentially makes streaming ripped or pirated content easy. That's the rub. Hell,...
