For me it was a tablo - $200, 1TB drive $50, lifetime $150, Sling offers a Roku 3 for $50, Roku 2 for $70 and my other TV's don't need them.

With the Tivo Roamio if you want to send that...

I've read a tiny bit about MOCA so I may need to look into it more (although a pair of actiontec adapters is about 2x the cost of a powerline 500). I currently have a powerline setup and it seems to...

I just “Cut the Cord” this week. I have found that it is really dependent on what TV you watch and what functions you need.

Here is what I did and why


Antenna for local sports, ABC, CBS,...

Hello everyone,

I'm researching cord cutting and will probably end up with a two tuner Tablo. What media are you watching that you'd like to have 5.1 on?

The tablo will be used for Football and...

I'd have to agree, I sit about 9-10' back from a 120", 2.35 screen and for zoomed, 2.35 content 4k would make a huge difference. I don't expect to upgrade for at least 3-4 years as its not just the...

List of Projectors with Lens Memory

This may not be a important function for many but I use lens memory all the time. I'm having a hard time finding a list of projectors that support it other than the various Panasonic models.

I just hope they continue to support the home theater market. Their last projector is now 2.5 years old. They seem to be the only company that puts in lens memory under $5,000 which is a must have...

If they came in black I'd get some for my theater, the two step lights in the riser don't cut it. In hindsight I should have put some down firing lights in my side columns.

I've thought about getting the 8k and selling my 4k, I have a new, unused bulb for the 4k so I don't need a new projector and could probably sell the 4k + bulb for $800-$1,000 on ebay (that is the...

4k is what I'm waiting on. I have a unused bulb for my Panasonic 4k so I have at least 3 years before I would "need" either another bulb or replacement projector.
