  1. Home Theater fans?

    Home Electronics
    Mando, Who would have thought I would find this information in the MDX forum? I'm thinking of using a Shuttle SS51G for a HTPC. I could remove the video card to reduce the noise level. Unfortunately it only has one PCI slot so I won't be able to use the DVI daughter card but component still...

    Any OTA DTV recorder suggestions? Since we're now discussing PVRs... I have a Samsung 165 which has DVI, RGB, VGA, and component outputs (ignoring the low resolution S-video and composite). I would like to capture the best possible signal and record it to disk so that I can play it back via...

    Now that xcel has mentioned it (I thought this was a local CA trend), the Foreign/Spanish stations are actually making better use of the subchannels than the national stations. Channel 62 (KRCA?) has 4 subs and usually 2 are showing a different program. KSCI (18) usually shows two different...

    Another thing to consider is even with SD, digital OTA TV has superior colors and almost no noise (there is some occasion jitter/jaggies). In my area, about half the digital channels are SD and the others are HD (720p). With the exception of PBS and some prime time HD shows, the local stations...

    I just sent you an email. HD is the way to go so long as the equipment will support the standards for 2006. Original aspect ratio is also the best way to view programs. I've heard lots of good things about the newer RPs but if you have the space, FP is the way to go. For about $5K you can get...

    Although there isn't much HD programming, there are as many DTV stations as there are analog in Southern California. This alone makes it worthwhile to invest in a home theater system. I don't have time to confirm all the model numbers but here is most of what I have: Sony VPL-HS10 Projector...
  8. Canon EOS 300D -- Digital SLR < $1,000

    General Off Topic
    I hate when I hit submit before I finish ... :1pat: For the G2 the "native" ISO is 50. When I shot low light pictures at 400, they were extremely grainy. So I don't really recommend shooting at fast ISOs unless you really need to get that picture. :drool:
  9. Canon EOS 300D -- Digital SLR < $1,000

    General Off Topic
    I thought my G2 was pretty good until I tried my friend's G3 and noticed all the improvements. I started looking at the G5 and nowI just noticed the EOS 300D. Right now 4MP doesn't seem to be a limiting factor in picture quality, the lens on the G2 just doesn't have enough zoom/WA (and I do...

    I noticed the same thing. TOV seemed to have just died too. I think it is a plot to squelch all information on TLs. I saw the 04 TL today and they were initially asking for an additional $3000 in profit (this is above MSRP) plus $1875 in overpriced accessories and offered me $2360 less than what...
  12. spare remote-->new problem

    Audio & Electronics
    Hmm. I bought a spare remote a few months ago and although programming was a little tricky (I followed the instructions in the Helms Manual) I eventually got all 3 to work. I've had no problems since then. I think someone else posted the procedure on this site. I'm not sure it the Ody procedure...
  13. Problems Installing Front Nose mask

    Accessories
    No fender flares either. You should still consider protecting the top of the hood even if you don't protect the bottom. I didn't do this for my CL and I've regretted it. I guess if you really wanted to protect your nose, you have a couple of choices: 1 - Make an extension for the fenderwell...
  14. Immoblizer Key System

    General Discussions
    nwaring, You didn't have to throw away the key. You could have had the dealer program the Immobilizer to recognize that key too. The fobs you can reprogram yourself (the procedure is listed in the Helm's manual and I think someone posted it here too). I bought an extra fob from Tim and...
  15. Problems Installing Front Nose mask

    Accessories
    I think I posted this earlier but here it is again: Clean the surfaces and wax them first. When you first try to put it on it seems like it is impossible. What I ended up doing is heating the mask up in the sun for a while. The part that fits on the hood wasn't too difficult but with the...

    Has anyone considered the Viewsonic? https://store.viewsonic.com/ibeCCtpItmDspRte.jsp?section=10008&item=40866 I remember reading about the "video on my navi" in the TL forum a few years ago but the Pioneer unit that was used is no longer in production. The Viewsonic is currently $99 which is...
  17. HID Installation Help?

    Accessories
    The kit I got from SPP had a different set of wires, someone posted pix in the group buys forum, and was very easy to install. Basically, you removed the OEM bulb, replace it with the HID bulb/adapter, plug it into the balast (they look the same as in the earlier pix), and plug the balast into...

    Don't forget about the hatchbag. They have a model that covers the entire back (back of front seats to hatch). Some pet shops sell them but I got mine directly from the manufacturer for about $137. www.hatchbag.com DMyles bought one also and posted pictures. Do a search on hatchbag. I don't...
  19. Acura Roof Racks: who uses them and for what?

    Ghost, Thanks for replying back in May. Not sure why I didn't see it earlier. :8: I'm thinking of getting the Extend-A-Truck II from Darby Industries for hauling those long loads on the roof. http://www.darbyindustries.com There's a Sports Rack in Costa Mesa (about 33 miles from me) that...

    Thule 997 Goal Post TCMB, Were you referring to the 997? Have you seen this in person? Do you know if this extends to the same height as the near worthless OEM roof racks? TIA
