The optical out on your TV isn't supposed to act as a passthrough. It's to get 5.1 from over-the-air HD programming. If you do get sound out of that thing, it'll only be in stereo, so using RCA...

You can also get, say, a Philips 5990 or something similar. They're not very pricey and do a pretty good job at upconfirting. They're also ridiculously easy to put region-free, which a lot of...

Samsung is just covering themselves with this. They have the same warning on for their plasma tvs.

All I have to say is, enjoy your DS9! :)

Blue Jeans also has some HDMI cables rated for 1080p at 120 feet without extenders! That's just insane.

I can just echo what's been said about picture quality of HDMI vs. Component. Hooking both...

To can convert any file you have to MPG and you player should play it without problems. MPG tends to take more space, though, so 700MB avi file would take up a bit more space, unless picture quality...

Oppos are great. I bought their original machine, the 971 as soon as it came out (I even have the silver remote to prove it! :)) and it worked perfectly for 3 years. In March, I bought their hefty...

You can probably still find a Pioneer Kuro 50" for about $2k. It would be 720p (5080), but it would kick the ass out of every TV you'd plan to buy. It's got reference colour accuracy and blacks...

That's easy: HK Video in France (R2).

Now, it comes with original Cantonese mono track, and subs. The subs are French, and they're forced, but the picture quality is the best.

You can look for the Creative X-Fi wireless system. It's a bit pricey, but it's better than other wireless kits you'd be able to find at big box stores. :)

If you happen to have a drive sold in 1997, then it's region-free. Anything after that, as Salty said, can be changed 5 times, then it's locked. Programs like DVD Region-Free bypass this, and can...

Korea would only include Korean BDs, nothing else. If you're going to Hong Kong, on the other hand, better take out a second mortgage, because they stock everything from everywhere! :)

The ONLY thing that would suit your needs is the Onkyo HT-SP908 HTiB. It's 7.1 with Onkyo's TX-SR605 receiver. It's got 2 HDMI ins, and decodes all HD audio codecs. Quite honestly, you're never...

ALL HDTVs have an option to squeeze in the 16x9 picture to 4x3. It's pretty easy to press a button to change that. Also, what model Toshiba player did you have? The SD6000?

I'm pretty surprised...

I would not recommend those. Seven dollar bulbs are not worth it. At 300 lumens and 150:1 contrast ratio, an Ipod would get a better picture. You're better off connecting that to your TV. :)

The thing with projectors, even older ones, is that the bulb is relatively expensive. Even if the bulbs are cheap, they may be hard to find. For under $200, you're not really going to find an...
