Use your AVR all the time. You have it, you may as well use it and not use the crappy TV speakers.

And he's right. Just like how he's right about TiVo being far superior to any crap that Verizon or Comcast can supply. The only FIOS competitor that can match TiVo is RCN because they offer TiVo. :D

Whoops. Guess I never posted those pics. I'll get around to it eventually. I have a 60" Sharp LED-LCD on there, in addition to all the stuff in the pictures and the internet claims it's 76 pounds,...

IPv4 is going to be around for a very, very long time. The Cable Cos are playing around with it, as they will run out of IPs much sooner than the Telcos, which have large blocks of IPs. As a result,...

That's a purchase at $20. Hopefully they eventually do rentals.



That's because neither have H.265-capable boxes, nor boxes that can output 4K from any codec, so they are relying on RVU on the...

This is quite true. I didn't realize how important the center is until I had surround sound, and now I realize that the majority of the audio is produced by the center channel. It depends on the...

Dish is pretty bad. Comcast is pretty bad. DirecTV is pretty good. FIOS is the best, although even they have been making some compromises recently to cram more channels in. Google Fiber is the only...

Even the real HBO? That's unfortunate, as that's one of the few channels, along with the ESPNs, that usually get a lot of bitrate on almost any system.

That's my point, as I posted in my previous post. HDX is a highly optimized version of H.264. Hence, quadruple the data (36mbps) and cut in half (18mbps), maybe get a little bit of extra efficiency...

VUDU HDX, Amazon 1080p and Netflix SuperHD look pretty darn good.



They have 100mbps ports, I doubt most of them can utilize anywhere close to 100mbps of actual bandwidth. There is no reason...

WHAT? There is no practical use for fiber inside the house today, and that has jack diddly squat to do with streaming video anyway. Even 4K Netflix is 15.9mbps, which any decent wireless N connection...

You said there is literally nothing except sailboats and stock footage. You are literally wrong because yes, there are a couple of series and a few movies available.

The bandwidth limit is in a few southern markets. Most don't have it. We average 400-600GB/mo, and sometimes are well north of 1TB. No issues here in CT.
