  1. Home Theater Computers
    I'm a novice who purchased a house with a basic home theater. An Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8100 ceiling mounted projector is connected to a Pioneer VSX-72TXV receiver with component cables. (no existing HDMI connection between the two). I've tried connecting a couple of different laptops (an...
  2. Display Calibration
    Hi! First of all, I am new to all of this. My goal is just to calibrate my laptops (current and upcoming). I plan to buy i1Display PRO and hook it up with some software to do the calibrations.

  6. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Okay, so a couple of months ago I decided to replace the terrible 768p TN panel in my ASUS laptop with a much better IPS 1080p panel, and it looks great, except for one slight detail. With some colors, notably orange and cyan hues, there's these weird horizontal lines that are usually a lighter...
  7. HDMI Q&A - The One Connector World
    I have a frustrating problem with my HDMI connections that seems rather illogical. Some of my devices will connect to my TV ok, and some won't. DisplayA: cheap old LCD TV branded "Andersson". DisplayB: cheap old LCD TV (sligtly larger) branded "Finlux". I guess it's actually the same brand as...
  8. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Dear AVS Community For about a year now, I’ve been trying to fix an issue I have with my home cinema and I am now hoping to find some help here because I have exhausted my means. The issue is that whenever I play a video from my laptop using a projector, I get irregular lag (not FPS-related...
  9. Display Calibration
    I have an Asus N53T series laptop. When I view the screen from a below angle, the darker colors appear "solarized" and I lose shadow detail. For instance, the color "black" appears lighter than "dark grey." I don't know the exact RGB values at which the colors clip, although, the color white...

    Hi Everyone, A question for the far more experienced (than I am) audio members ... I have a sony Vaio Lap Top (running Windows 8.1) connected by HDMI to a NAD T757 Receiver . I can't select "enhanced stereo" in listening mode when the LAPTOP is the source. I also have a BluRay player, Bell...
  13. Video Download Services & Hardware
    Pretty basic question, but I can't find any discussion... I just started trying iTunes video. Running iTunes on Win7-64 laptop. Some titles I can buy, download and watch on the laptop in iTunes in HD, which is my goal. Many other titles when I try to buy, iTunes says "This cannot be played in HD...
  14. Speakers
    Hi! I recently got the old speakers from my grandfather, they are two beautiful B&W DM7's. Now I want to connect them, if possible in some way, to my laptop. Is there anyone who knows what I need to connect them? I added some pictures so it'll be easier to see
  15. Display Calibration
    Hi!! I have a conundrum that is making me think. I bought a new Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series laptop with a 720p display (probably alright; not a photo editor). It has a program called True Color preinstalled. It has profiles similar to a TV display menu you would find when calibrating. Is this...
