@Scott Wilkinson - sorry the show was cancelled! I looked forward to tuning in every Thursday for my evening commute home from work. I do hope you decide to start it back up under another platform at some point. I learned a wealth of knowledge from Home Theater Geeks. Looking forward to any future projects you might undertake!

Don't you just wish HDMI would crawl off to some darkened corner and die a sad, lonely death?

I am very sad to see this show end. Scott had a great way of interacting with his guests with which there were so many great interviews. I observed all of the shows from my computer on one of multiple displays while working. I often went back and viewed shows over again, or researched topics online which they were being discussed. I enjoyed learning from industry experts like Steve Bishop with the history of cinema and aspect ratios to modern technology in home theater. I hope that Scott will find another platform on which to continue his show on the near future. In the interim we will all miss his presence and will be waiting to see him again.

Thank you Scott for your commitment over the last 8 years.

Wow, firstly I'm shocked that this show was cancelled. It was by far the best thing on Twit TV by a very large margin. I truly enjoyed every show as it was not only interesting, but Scott made sure that difficult subjects were easy to understand. Not least of all you helped us improve our enjoyment of audio and video which to me is an extremely important part of my quality of life.

Thank you for all your years or hard work, it's great appreciated by all of us.

As I watched this show though an Android box I now have literally no other source of audio/video news and information.

If anyone could share links or repositories that contain video podcasts for the Android box on anything audio related it would be very much appreciated. I need something....anything to tide me over until Scotts return.

Thank you.

Make something idiot-proof, and they will build a better idiot

I finally decided to look on the forums to see why new podcasts were not appearing on my device. Man, what a shocker! I have been a listener for many years. I always looked forward to listening to the latest show every Friday during my commute. The topics were diverse and the guests were amazing. I have learned so much from the show, and I hope that it can somehow continue in some form. Please let us know if it receives a revival. In the meantime, enjoy some well-deserved time off, Scott.

I enjoyed the show also. My only criticism (which appears to be have been made on other forums) is Scott could sometimes overlaugh (if that is the term) and I found that somewhat annoying.

Still it beats the overtalking that Leo Laporte does on all his own shows. He always talks over his panelists insisting on his point of view. Leo not being this podcast was a godsend!

Well I think this is an opportunity for you Scott. While Twit may have provided a nice aid in producing and marketing the show, you have quite a following now and could easily get something going on your own. Start small. It doesn't have to be an hour podcast. Honestly, I only listened to Leo on the day's you were on and skipped to 20 minutes to listen to your advice on TV's, projectors..etc.. Your podcast helped me build an amazing home theater in my house. Leo's show was just a roadblock to get to the good stuff. YOU!!

I hope you will find a way to continue even if it's small. I really value your input on what products are good and why, what technology is up and coming, and who has the best bang for the buck. Sure, I can look it up on this forum and elsewhere, but I trust you, and the podcast is such an easy way to get the information, and the detail you offer is sooo valuable.

Keep it going. Moving away from Leo is good thing!!! IMO

I came here looking for the most recent HTG episode, since it's been several weeks. I'm really sad to hear HTG was cancelled. It was definitively my favorite show. Thank you Scott for your great work and I hope one day something of equally high quality can be resurrected.

Scott,

I'm another long time listener of Home Theater Geeks who's jonesing for a fix. Please consider an AVSforum production of this excellent podcast. Yours was the only show that I kept up with on TWIT. Your jovial personality, established knowledge, and connection to great guests will be missed!

Please consider bringing the show back as a podcast-only production. I'm willing to donate time and technical skills to help get you up and running again, if you are interested (although I'm on the east coast, in Boston).

Hi Scott,

Do you have any plan to continue the show on your own?
As others have said, you have built an audience which should help bootstrap a new show on YouTube, maybe with some Patreon.com support if needed?

Kind regards from Switzerland,
MJA

This is sad news. Is there no way to continue it without Leo, who is awesome, and TWIT? Even if the production quality were less it is about the greatness of you and the guests.

I'm too lazy to read every post on here. So, what about hosting it on YouTube?

And the payoff is never certain: Some observers contend that a generation has already been trained to be content with the small screen.

Some servers can do non-encrypted playback to an A/V projector, but it's just a ridiculously expensive media player if you don't have a cinema projector.

I think he means what about hosting new episodes on YouTube? ie. the only episodes on youtube are the past episodes aren't they? Surely the series could continue on youtube (new episodes) and still earn revenue from there. Hosting the new episodes on youtube could also allow a bit of time for any post production if wanted/things that can't be done live easily.

I came here looking for a CES recap and just noticed HTG was canceled. I truly hope Scott starts something up again. I used to be the ultimate Leo Laport fan starting with the original Screen Savers, but these days TWIT is not very entertaining and and Leo looks to be winging it, (at our expense), most of the time. I don't think he spends much time researching these days. Things that I have been aware of for a while, are today's news for him. Anyway I hope he gets his MOJO back.

Scott is still vastly entertaining and informative as major part of the Leo show, even if he doesn't have his own show anymore. Granted, as a guest on somebody else's popular show he has to be more 'consumer friendly', avoiding much of the techno-speak and engineering jargons of the Home Theater 'Geeks' catering to a small niche segment. I personally prefer this more popular approach and that's why I still listen to these Leo podcasts.

What a major loss

I feel this is a considerable loss for those of us geeks. So much of what is out there is very opinionated or sided toward a particular manufacturer instead of factual such as HTG. Some of the decisions I made for my HT was a result of information learned from this podcast. TWIT has made a major bad decision in canceling this show. Granted, I never watched the show on TWit itself but rather through my apple TV by way of iTunes pod-casting. I do hope that the show will someday resume. I had been on a bit of hiatus myself as I've been back in school working on my degree in Computer Information Science and had realized that CES 2018 had just happened and wanted to tune in and see what HTG had to say and show of this years CES show. I was sorely disappointed when I found the show with nothing new since 9/28/17.

I am so sorry to hear this Scott! Your podcast was always very helpful and informative and I always enjoyed your in-depth knowledge in the industry. It helped me to figure out which direction to take on my Home Theater Installation on several occasions. You have been and always will be my go-to source for Home Theater related content and knowledge. TWIT does not know what it is missing by removing your show (one of the most interesting shows that their network ever had). Thank you!

WOW Scott what happened on this week's Leo Laporte podcast?!?!! Your host kept cutting you off and acting really rude like a know-it-all jackass. He needs to chill or smoke some of that now-legalized stuff. If I were a guest on his show I would have certainly told him off.

I say you don't need to suffer this fool anymore. Just start a new Youtube channel with weekly uploads and we'll all be your subscribers.

I've never seen him NOT do that. He's thoroughly unprofessional and would never get a job for one of the more traditional broadcasters.
