When I had an RCA 5220P DVD player, you had to select DTS from DVD players menu before it would pass on a DTS bit stream. (Don't ask me why the DVD player should care.)

Check and see if your...

Your TV will need audio output jacks so that you can watch normal TV in Dolby Pro Logic. One thing you need to consider is if you want them to be at line level, or adjustable by the TV's volume...

Why not 960i ?

Why did they make HDTV 1080i? Wouldn't 960i have been a better choice? It would make up conversion and down conversion of 480 and 720 signals much easier. Does anyone know what the logic of...

I bought some RCA Digital Component Cables at Wal-Mart for $15. They work just great. If I had an analog connection, I'd probably spend more, but since it is digital, a bit is a bit is a bit.

When I bought my Toshiba 43H71 TV, every once and a while, it would make a popping noise and the picture would go out. So I bought a power conditioner and it's never happened again. I got one on...

Have you been using the anamorphic squeeze? I have a Toshiba 43H71, and everytime I put it in 16:9 mode, I have to reconverge it. I have seen other complaints on other boards about this.

Since you don't have much room, get a Toshiba. Their RPTV's have much less depth than most stuff out there. A 42H81 is only 18" deep. I have a Toshiba 43H71 which is 20" deep, and it takes up less...

It's not that the black bars burn in, it's the fact that they don't. The middle will slowly get dimmer because it is used more than the top and bottom black bar area.

Letterbox Burn in Paranoia

I just bought a Toshiba 43H71 HDTV. I figured I wouldn't get a widescreen since I would also be using the TV for normal TV viewing more than I would for watching my DVDs. Plus the TV does the...

As for the white coming from the top corner of the black bars, try adjusting the Tilt. You can do that from the normal menus. I had to do that on my Sony, and it fixed the problem.

I have a 32" Sony FS12, and am not happy with it. When the scenes are dark, the black levels are so bright they appear brown. It's really annoying when watching a 2.35:1 movie in enhanced mode. ...

Toshiba 43H71 Problem.

I just bought a Toshiba 43H71 HDTV. Every now and then (It has only happened 3 times), the TV will just make a loud buzzing sound and lose the picture. When I turn it off and turn it back on again,...

IR Redirection?

I am buying a 43" Toshiba 4:3 TV that requires a short stand. However, if I put my components in the stand, my coffee table will block the components so that I can not use the remotes from a sitting...

Comb filters do not affect S-Video input. If your main interest is watching DVDs in 16:9 mode, then I wouldn't worry about getting the better comb filter.

You might want to check on the legality of showing DVDs in a theater. They are licensed for home use only. Charging admission could get your college in trouble.

I need a better subwoofer, and I was thinking it might be cheeper to buy a crossover and driver and just hook it up to my old amp which I'm no longer using. Is there more to it than that?
