  2. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    Disclaimer and Warning. I have performed this process only once. Although it dramatically improved contrast and deepened black level on a poor performing, used X790, I do not have appropriate test equipment to accurately measure contrast ratio. However, I do come from a CRT projection background...

    Hello, It's been a long while since I last posted here. Thanks for reading. My question is whether anyone who owns a SONY Bravia X900F or X800E series running Android OS V. 9 Kernel 4.9.128, released in October last year, has experienced a problem with the TV holding the Audio Output setting...

    I just connected the TOSLINK port of my 65" Samsung Q9F TV to my Denon AVR-4800 receiver, but it only works when it's set to 2-channel. I am feeding the TV off a 4K Roku, so I expected to see something more than just stereo. Samsung docs are crap, so can anyone tell me if it's strictly stereo...
  8. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hello, I am in the process of finishing my tv setup after moving. When I tried to play something in 4K it wouldn't work and I think I deduced it is because my Denon x2100 receiver doesn't support the 4k signal. It sounds like I will need to get a new receiver but I have been looking for one...

    Hi AVS, I recently purchased an LG C9 TV, and am trying to connect it to my old Yamaha RX-V765, but am having trouble figuring out how to get all 7.1 channels to work. I would like to connect all my devices to my TV, and use the amp only as an audio output. Two reason for this: I want to use...

    I'm selling a new unopened Optical Cable for Chromecast Audio. Purchased in December of 2018 from Google but never used.

    Guys, Before I start, I've searched but I cant find any threads with helpful information. That being said, I have a LG 60LB6500 that I have had for maybe around 2 years now. Since un-boxing the TV, the way I have used the audio is that I would have the TV set to audio output to the internal...

    The goal of this thread will be to help understand different methods of outputting surround sound from a PC, and which might be the best all-round option. So, I've recently bought a high fidelity 5.1 surround system for use with my computer (computer has Windows 10 Professional and an NVidia...

    Hi I'm new here and need some help hooking up my TV to my receiver. The problem is that my receiver (Yamaha R-S202BL) only takes analog audio sources while the TV (49UH6030-UD) has HDMI and optical audio outputs. I thinking about buying an optical-RCA converter off amazon but I'm not sure if...

    So we've had our PS4 set up with our Pioneer VSX-329 for over a year with an optical cable working perfectly to achieve surround sound. Suddenly the other night after watching a film, it was no longer working. After investigating we realised that the cable seemed a bit loose, so we replaced it...

    I have a Vizio P50-C1 and I seem to be completely unable to get audio via the optical out port and my existing Yamaha RX-V465 receiver's AV1/4 optical inputs.
