You know, sometimes I don't even have that sub on because it was killing my drywall in that spot.

That's horrible. How can you possibly let a thing like wall stability interfere with a sub?!

Re: flat panel vs. dlp display models in stores

Last month, I ran my HD DVD XA2 player in 480i mode going to my 10-year old TV, just to make sure the XA2 player worked.

Last week, I connected the XA2 player to the new Samsung TV via componenet video, and while it looked clean, it was a little creamy little in terms of picture quality, so I wasn't wowed by it.

This weekend, I finally got long enough HDMI cables to run from my HD DVD player to the Samsung 67A750, and watched King Kong again, but the video wasn't syncing up correctly on HDMI, and then I noticed that the XA2 player was still in mode 1 (480i), which explained why it didn't look too impressive via component video since it was still 480i and upconverted. So I flipped it over to mode 2 (1080p) and restarted the player, and I wasn't prepared for the sweet picture quality of 1080p. But I sat there and watched King Kong kicked the crap out of 3 T-Rexes with a big smile on my face. Whoa.
