Home Theater: Pixelation vs. TV Type, apples to apples, operating technology
apples to apples, operating technology, television resolution: First I would caution you on the assumptions you ve made - LED backlights are not inherently better than CCFL backlights (and both are LCD based displays); they may offer some advantages at the very high end (these are usually $3000+ displays), but at the...

yamaha rx v1500, jvc system, rx v1500: These components cannot be connected - the Yamaha is an amplifier in its own right, and conventionally will have the speakers connected directly to it. Before you run off and do that though, what is the stated impedance on the speakers from the JVC system?...

Home Theater: soundbar home theater, inch plasma television, home theater system
inch plasma television, home theater system, home theater systems: Honestly I m not a big fan of soundbars - if you aren t going to go discrete surround, just do stereo sound correctly.

toshiba hdtv, blu ray player, sharp tv: If the Sharp TV isn t worth a lot (and 19 TVs generally aren t - especially if it was a gimme ), the trade isn t as bad, but it still isn t equivalent value from my perspective. That said, if you really want the player, it sounds like a way to get one for...

mitsubishi hd 1080, dtv transport, amazon: Based on the TV tuning to channel 3 or 4 I m guessing it only has an NTSC tuner (which means it can t receive anything, because NTSC broadcasting ended in the US a few years ago); you will need a DTV Transport Box to receive ATSC broadcasts (for channels...

Home Theater: hookup, hdmi cables, optical cables
hdmi cables, optical cables, blu ray players: Firstly I think there s some confusion over terminology here: A Blu-ray player is a separate hardware device from a DVD player, and will make a stand-alone DVD player redundant (as Blu-ray players can also play DVDs). I also think you re likely seeing...

Home Theater: BluRay Recorder?
As far as I m aware, no, recorders do not exist as stand-alone machines (at least in the consumer segment). There are professionally oriented BD recorders, but they will not be as user-friendly or feature-rich as what you may expect coming from a VCR or DVD...

Home Theater: home theater drapery system

Home Theater: 42-46" smart TV
Samsung generally makes a fine product, you may also look at Vizio as well - they may cost less relative to the features they offer (and they make a fine product as well). Sony should also be considered, if your budget will allow you to go beyond their entry...

1080p tv, blu ray discs, upconverting dvd player: I m going to agree with what Consumer Reports has said - if you aren t interested in Blu-ray, there s no point in another player, as your TV will handle it as described. Quality will be as good as you ll get from DVD (which is likely to be quite good, assuming...

Home Theater: external TV speakers, sound amplifier, panasonic product

rear projection tvs, rear projection tv, samsung rear projection tv: Quite frankly, while I commend you for troubleshooting the problem, the short version of my reply is that it s time to buy a new TV.

buying a new tv, apple tv, functional perspective: They ll be more or less identical from a functional perspective, especially with the AppleTV.

Home Theater: Digital connections
Optical (also called TOSlink) versus coaxial, should be identical from a functional perspective - the same data is being sent on either format. However TOSlink offers an advantage over coaxial in that it does not make an electrical connection between the two...

Home Theater: Dolby True HD/DTS master
I think there might be some confusion regarding these formats, at least based on your question (that, or I m not fully understanding what you re asking - if that s the case, feel free to point that out). The receiver does not output any sort of digital format...

Regarding the hearing loss concern, I would say that you ve probably found a genuine rumor - I say this for three reasons: - It appears to be a fairly absolute statement. - A quick search reveals a website put together by NIH on the topic of age related...

Home Theater: surge suppressors
Power conditioners are nothing I d generally suggest, for two reasons: - Manufacturers are notoriously vague with what the device actually does. In a lot of cases they play fast and loose with words like conditioning or cleaning or whatever just to...

Home Theater: Surround sound from HDPVR630
There is no way to send a discrete surround sound signal (analog or digital) into that Panasonic system. So the only option for surround sound content is from DVD. However, having said that, the majority of television programming is not surround sound, so...

Home Theater: Yamaha RX-V467 Amplifier
The biggest problem that you ll run into, even if you have all of the assorted tools, measurement equipment, experience, etc to work on a device like this is that documentation is fairly sparse. It isn t like receivers/amplifiers/etc of 30-40 years ago where...

Home Theater: adapter and HD receiver

Home Theater: dvd combo
Given your desire for a compact system, I wouldn t even go with a micro shelf system - a soundbar will integrate everything into one module (the speaker itself), and still provide an improved listening experience over the TV s speakers. I would suggest looking...

Home Theater: receivers
No, subwoofer pre-outs (or any other preout or lineout) is entirely what RCA is suited for. What I meant was very cheap (usually older) receivers or amplifiers that send speaker-level signals over RCA jacks. You ll often see this with computer speakers as...

Home Theater: ADCOM GTP 400/GFA555II/Pyle PPEQ 100 equalizer
The Adcom GTP400 isn t exactly a tuner in the truest sense of the word - it s a preamplifier with a built-in AM/FM tuner; meaning that it can both function to receive AM/FM, but it also accepts line-level signals and provides a pre-amplified output for your...

The easy answer is yes and no - HDMI output quality between players should be assumed to be equivalent (larger differences will be found between displays and display configuration - often the differences between digital sources can only be demonstrated with...
