If you're going to install in-wall, you have to use conduit. 1.5" - 2.0". Connection technology is still way behind the video technology and you will be swapping out cables probably sooner than...

It's called Motion Interpolation and is called different names by different mfrs as mentioned above. LG, for example, calls it TruMotion. Some tv's allow you to disable it altogether, some don't, and...

HDMI 2.1, and the associated magical 48Gbps cable, won't be realized until late this year and probably next year. Some mfrs may offer some sort of firmware upgrade to their HDMI 2.0a chipsets but it...

No link so I looked up Monitor Audio Mass 5.1 (which I've never heard of) and could only find 5.0. A lot of folks who purchase their speaker package separately, and are on a tight budget have been...

I too prefer the term "48Gbps cable" to separate them from the current passive/active HDMI cables. Certification is a good thing but it is pretty much useless unless ALL cable mfrs follow the same...

I think you missed it. Treasure of the Sierra Madre is the original. Blazing Saddles is one of my favorite movies but we were referencing the original, as we old folks do.
