1. Don't copy settings. Keep in mind that every panel, firmware, board(s) versions, viewing environments are different, even within the same model line. They may work, but if they don't, that's your...

You'd be much better off with either the Yamaha or the Onkyo. Vizio is just plain crap imo. I have a Yamaha system and it has been trouble-free since day one, can handle anything I throw at it, and...

+1. And to be clear, ARC has been around for quite sometime. It is part of HDMI 1.4 hardware protocols so HDMI 2.0 has nothing to do with ARC. What HDMI 2.0, once the fully capable chipsets are...

If your runs are under 10', you can use a passive HDMI cable with a thinner gauge and not have any issues.

Bose doesn't get a lot of love around here and I think part of the problem is that the cost doesn't justify the performance. Speakers are really what make a system. A generalization for sure but good...

$1000 is a nice budget. My initial reaction would be to not consider Bose at all and go with the Klipsch and HK setup. In wall speakers sort of lock you into whatever you've installed. I like the...

The caveat to that is as long as they have the correct codes for their specific model, firmware, and board(s) version builds. Resetting to default is no guarantee that it will remember the mfr values...

That makes it a lot easier then. I'm assuming the wall plates will just have an opening for the cable to come thru.

Current passive HDMI certification goes up to 25'. Anything under about 10' you could probably get away with a non-certified cable. 28AWG would probably work for that length but you might want to...

Yeah, I would go ahead and give CEC a go. CEC does work for people so you may be one of those. If it's wonky, at least you know why and you have options to look at, and won't spend time with customer...

Has that always been true? I'm not doubting you I was just always under the impression that game designers could pretty much do that they wanted, and that always didn't follow rec.709. So calibrating...

WoW, Spears & Munsil 2nd Edition, and even the free AVS HD 709 disks are good disks to adjust your settings instead of a real calibration. Probably all you need. The THX Tune-up disk is ok from what...

Then by all means, tinker in the SM if you feel you must. It's your tv. But if you do mess something up by accident, and Samsung chooses not to repair it under warranty, don't be surprised.
