I'm eager for the next meeting. Could someone make one of those blu-ray demo discs for me?

Thanks,

Richard B.

Can't recall how the other meets were done in terms of sharing addresses and such - not sure I really want to post my address on the forum itself.
Post it by PM to the persons who've indicated they're coming.

Ok, I don't have a bd demo disc - if someone who's attending has one, will they bring it?

Yeah, I didn't mean I don't have plenty of BD material. I just never compiled a true demo disc.

I think I confused you. I have several demo discs. I'll bring a few over and then decide.

Have we decided on a start time?

Not yet. What works best for everyone? I'm about as flexible as can be with timing that day.

When have the others started?

And no, you didn't confuse me. I just didn't want anyone to think I didn't have BD material. I just don't have actual demo discs - never bothered to create one.

I don't want to commit 100% since its not for sure I'll be there; but if I do make it I could make some copies of the Demo Discs for those that would like to have a copy or tow. Big IF though.

You're always so helpful Leo. Hopefully you can make it by as it would be good to see you again.

If you can make it, demo disks would be awesome. Let us know.

Thumbs up March 14th meeting...

I plan on being there, where ever and when?

Could "we" construct some kind of picture directory of local membership?

Hey all, so everyone knows the general area, I'm in Pearland, west of 288, south of BW8. I will pm the exact address to all participants later this week. As of right now, I have the following on the attendance list:

Confirmed:
conanb
avtexan
PainInfliction
7channelfreak
Jautor
Stridulent
speedoflight
JVoth

Tentative:
superleo

If I don't have you listed, please chime in to this thread or pm me so that I can make sure you are on the directions pm.

Start time is 5pm Saturday March 14th and we'll go until the last person leaves. I'll have plenty of snacks, and I do have a decent bar stock, but if there's something specific you wish, BYOB (I don't have a lot of beer - I'm a bourbon guy).

I don't have a wife to entertain your s/o's (and my gf will be elsewhere), but feel free to coordinate among yourselves - your s/o's are more than welcome to come as long as there are multiple ones to visit among themselves (or heck, they may even enjoy the HT stuff!).

As I've said, after seeing Jeff's, my theater may be a bit of a step down, but it will still be a fun gathering. Always interested to hear others comments and advice. I've got at least 2 things I'm considering as upgrades that I'll ask you guys about that evening. There's only formal seating for 8, but I can bring bar stools upstairs for a couple of overflow spots, and there's plenty of standing room as well.

I didn't do a build thread here - mine was built out in summer of 2008 by Signature Home Theater with "some" pre-owned products and some new products, so here's a list of key elements of my gear:

Runco RS900 projector / Stewart Firehawk 100" 16x9 Screen
Klipsch THX Ultra Speaker System (with matching subs)
Integra DTS 9.8 pre / NAD M25 amp
Sources:
Blu ray - (GASP!) Sony PS3 (I really need to upgrade to an Oppo soon)
Toshiba HD-DVD (yeah, I lost the format war)
Xbox 360
Cable feed from Comcast / SciAtl8300HD box (if it ain't broke. . .)
Custom built 80tb server delivering ISO files to Dune HD player (which is why I haven't worried about upgrading from the PS3) with Movienizer front end GUI.
And yeah, there's an old VHS deck plugged into the system as well (rarely used)
Plus all the UPS and battery backups to keep things flowing for an orderly shutdown

Outside of that, my den downstairs has a 50" (55"?) Samsung plasma, with an Integra DTR 40.4 driving Polk LSi 5 channel setup. Sources are Tivo and Xbox 1. Also input from Comcast DVR in theater rack distributed old school component using Audio Authority Aviatrix (which is routed to 6 rooms).

Master Bedroom and Bath also have LG tv's wall mounted.

All of this was done circa 2008, so it's becoming somewhat dated and will need a refresh soon.

Bitchin'. It'll be my first day off in a while so I'll have a good time and try not to drink all Mike's bourbon. I'll also be able to talk to Pain Infliction about that Shady McCoy trade. I think your boy Chip Kelly is doing some strange stuff man.

1. Cut DeSean Jackson for alleged gang ties which have been shown not to be true.
2. Extend Riley Cooper after a racist rant and a previous season of a whopping 300 yards receiving.
3. Trade one of the top RB's in the league for a non pass rushing LB who just so happened to be an Oregon Alum.
4. Rumored to want Mariota in the draft for his franchise QB. (Not an NFL quarterback. Mark my words on that.)

I think this guy has a great system but it looks like he's going to ruin it with bad personnel moves.

I agree that Chip has made some questionable moves, but he is way more football smart then both of us and I am just going to leave it at that. Hopefully things will work out.

I'll be doing my best to have all my extension done and filed before that weekend, but there is always "that one".

I have 2 others from Houston that would like to attend if I make it. So if it would be ok, two tentative others.

Thanks for hosting.

Hey Mike - I'm ticked that I'll have to miss this one! I'm sure I'll have another opportunity to drink your bourbon...

(and by the way, I took a tour / tasting at the Yellow Rose Distillery last Friday - great little place, and the one $6 cocktail I had before the tour was, well, ample!)

Sorry you can't make it Jeff. Hoping I can make it to your next poker night, though I'm traveling a bit the next 2 months - Vegas next week and Puerto Rico in April.

PM's sent to everyone in the list in post 198 (except Jeff).

I'll be off the boards most likely until next Thursday due to travel, so I've provided my email address in case you need to change your RSVP and my phone # for the day of in case you have any trouble finding me.

Conanb - I know you sent this to the Houston Home Theater group (since I'm in it and received the email). If you know of anyone from that group not in this thread who plans to attend, please forward the information from my PM and please let me know who I should add to the guest list.

See you all next Saturday evening!
