Thanks, I think I understand. So then it would be ok to have the LF speakers vertical but with the tweeter lower than the horizontal center speaker. I'll take a look at whats available--I might be...

I am under the impression that 1. I need to have the tweeters for LR speakers as far apart as possible and 2. The tweeters need to be on the same horizontal plane while as close to the bottom of the...

I probably could have worded my first post a little better:)-the entire entertainment center is probably going to be torn out except for the outer framing. The new tv is going to take up so much...

Right now listening distance is about 15 feet away, although it is in the back of my mind to move the couch closer to better take advantage of a 4K tv.

Thanks, I'll definitely keep the Concept line in mind. It definitely looks like it could be the best solution for lower priced speakers in a less than optimal placement, especially now that they...

I'm thinking the LRC speakers would have to fit below the new tv, which is going to take up most if not all of the width of the entertainment center. There is enough height to contain everything and...

On-wall speakers, just to the left and right of the entertainment center, I suppose, might work. But I forgot to mention that WAF is involved here, and she really wants it to look nice and neat-on...

Speakers for Built-in Entertainment Center

My living room has a built-in entertainment center that was built by the previous owner. He wasn't very forward thinking, and so I was stuck with a tv space for a 4:3 tv, and only enough room for a...

I don't think the system storage option in the setup screen does anything-at least, it didn't for me when I tried it. Evidently that step is not needed to be able to use My Movies, etc.

It's been a while since I did this on the H1, but don't I need to "initialize system storage?" When I select that option on the Solo 4K, it tells me there is no storage to initialize-I don't see...

I was disappointed in the quality of Why Be Good? (1929) last night. But I'm blaming Dish's compression scheme, rather than TCM. The compression in the background was bad, and overall the film...

Did Zerdin do one original thing his entire time on the show? What was so great about him?

Very weak season. Add in the fact that The Regurgitator has been doing his act for 30 years (I...

Well, 8 straight hours of no HD on Thursday night. Maybe I need to pay more attention. I'll start DVRing everything that isn't already on Blu ray and report back in one week what I find. I...

Considering the lack of posts lately, I guess there hasn't been much "true" HD stuff on the channel. Very frustrating that so little of what TCM HD is playing is in HD, and even more frustrating...

Agreed. This season was definitely better than last season, when I wasn't sure if I'd continue watching. I still don't like Joan, and I really didn't like how they elevated her abilities to the...

I suspect Lynch and Frost will be co-showrunners, with Lynch putting in more time "directing (photography and working with the actors)," and Frost busy with everything else. Does it sound like a...

I have faith that this isn't just a money grab by Lynch, and that in 25 years he has thought up entertaining, if not compelling, material. I'd be a lot more skeptical if not for Mulholland Drive.

This episode was really odd, and the first one of the season where the ongoing storyline lost its continuity.

The weakness in Gotham is its over reliance on plot. Bruno needs to slow things...

On my Dish Hopper they ALL say HD in the info screen. The only thing that changes is that some movies have the closed captioning symbol, and some do not.
