Same problem here, and apparently around the same time as you folks. Has anyone found a solution? My internet radio works just fine. It only seems to be Pandora that is affected. I am debating...

I would try it out first. Move it around and see where you can get the size you like and be comfortable watching.

My understanding is that the Denon avr-x3300 is better than the Yamaha rx-v779, but any of the Yamaha Aventage models are better than the Denon. I tested the Denon and the Yamaha RX-A2000 (or...

Thanks for the response. Kodi via LibreELEC is not an option, because we will at times be using this computer to do a lot of other things than TV, so having a fully functional Windows is necessary. ...

It's about time they upgraded the PF1500. I really hope they make a short throw version.

Why has it been two years since anyone has created a new bulb-less projector in this price range? Am I...

Personally, I'm more concerned about more cost conscious projectors with permanent light sources than I am about 4K. I can't believe so few LED or laser projectors have made it to market. If the...

I guess I just don't see the point of having two identical outputs. I can buy a simple video splitter to accomplish that, so it really doesn't add much. When I can output three different music...

My 4 ohm speakers kick pretty hard (it is actually two 8 ohm speakers wired in parallel), so I never bothered to add a subwoofer.

Wow, this is infuriating to hear. I designed my basement with an independent Zone 2 as a critical piece of the puzzle, and never realized it was just a splitter. Why bother include it then?

Out of phase should mean one of your speakers is wired backward.

The ohms should be set to 6 ohms for 4 ohm speakers, I confirmed that with Yamaha.

Another pet peeve of mine is that stations are only listed by preset number, so you have to...
