There's no length limits for HDMI and no, it doesn't have to be an active cable for long runs. The only reliable long cables I've found are from BlueJeans and my longest one is 70' Series-1.

Signal strength bars mean absolutely nothing. Does the TV report RSSI or signal strength in dBm? The TV should be at least -67 dBm for a good connection. If it's lower than that, then relocate...

The reason you're getting poor 2.4 GHz coverage is because there's only 3 channels that are available - 1, 6, 11 (in the US, anyway). If you have neighbors that are using channels other than those,...

The MOCA adapter doesn't go inline - it hangs off a splitter, so it can be placed anywhere on the cable. So you'd need to add a splitter in your living room. However, I wouldn't recommend MOCA if...

Just as a heads up - when using those with the 160s, they can only really be used at 0° or 90°. An issue I ran into just this weekend. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find anyone that has the...

I've done phantom center, the RP-250C and currently have the RP-450C. I'd go for either the RP-440C or RP-450C if you watch a lot of movies. If you don't, upgrade your sub.

No. The 150 has a keyhole on the back to hang it. The 160 doesn't - it's pretty damn big for a bookshelf speaker.

Easier to rack/unrack and cable. I can't reach around the cabinet when plugging cables in to hold the equipment in place. If you don't unrack equipment as much as I do, it probably won't make much...

There's two of them in that picture - the TiVo is mounted in one as well. My recommendation is to get the optional clamp kit with it too.

Those are the textured powder coat finish.

Denon X2200W or X3200W?
