You don't have to use a HDTV input though. I use the regular component input on my Mits 55807 and it works in progressive mode.

If you already have a DVD player but no HDTV and aren't ready to...

If it's your TV then you have the dreaded "Red push". Most TVs have them but most aren't much worse than 20%. I've not heard of JVC televisions having that much. My Mitsubishi has a 20% red push. ...

I view mine on a Mitsubishi 55807. I used to have a 32" Hitachi and before that a 27" Zenith. Viewed my first 2.35:1 WS movie on a 19" TV and loved every minute of it.

If you're looking to get into the $200-$300 range then I'd go with a progressive scan player. Someone above mentioned not to go with JVC but I disagree. Over on Home Theater Spot the JVC XV...

If you can get a 6.1 setup for less than $500 I would go for it. I assume that it can do EX for Dolby Digital as well.

A decent cheap subwoofer that many here rave about is the Sony SAWM40 or...

Sattelite speakers tend to have a mid-bass hole where the sat. freq response ends and the sub freq response begins. Also, with subs playing higher bass it becomes localized.

Wal-Mart's "7am" policy??

I'm wondering if this will be made available at Wal-Mart at midnight like they did with the VHS and other releases until around January. It seems most of the Wal-Marts in my area are taking a "not...

Re: Progressive Scan TV - advice requested

TVs won't output NTSC or PAL. They will display them which I believe is what you are referring to. If a TV can display a 480p signal, then they would be progressive scan. Most(if not all) US HDTV...

Bose aren't bad speakers. They just cost about 2.5 to 3 times more than they're worth. So for the price of just a couple speakers(or the Acoustimass system), you could get more speakers with better...

I'd recommend the Kenwood since it has S-Video switching and DPLII. The receivers were never the weak link in a Kenwood HTB. When you finally upgrade your speakers, you'll hear what digital...

Yes, usually in the cases where there are seperate LFE pads, the DTS should be set to 10db higher. I think it has something to do with the DD decoders.

I believe it's a hardware issue with the DTS setting on your H/K receiver. I believe it's defaulted 10db too low. Go into your setup menu and adjust the DTS LFE pad 10db.

Some receivers have...

Ignorance is bliss.

I never said they didn't exist. I said they were extremely expensive. Also, I may have worded the discrepancy wrong about the way a large speaker handles the full frequency.
