I rarely watch the weekend car shows due to the heavy product placements. Majority of the shows is a commercial of various sorts with very little real "how to". Edd gets a big "right on" from me...

I don't think you'll have an issue with the beam getting in the way. Take a string and attach it to the point where you want the top of the screen to be and run it back to where the projector will...

I've noticed that on the cable channels, some shows have a longer than 1 hour run time in order to add commercials. At least they can pay the bills to keep the shows on the air even if many of us FF...

I was also confused until I read the manual. Why they designed it like they did is in Onkyo's logic realm. I stared at the back of the photo a long time trying to get my mind around it and only...

The 1030 has preamp for 7.1.4. It doesn't have the both overheads. You'll need an external amp to run the back two overheads if you have an old amp with pre iins you can run the back overheads...

I would recommend unobstructed views in a home theater. Having said that, there can only be a small area that is perfect for picture and sound. That's my seating position :) How often you have a full...

For my theater, I used the Ralph Lauren suede. It is lighter than a typical theater paint and the suede texture is pretty good at NOT reflecting light. While it's one of my man caves, it has a high...
