      i think Britters should become our thread mascot. after all, she gives us all something to talk about, laugh at,question the morals of and be glad it's not us up there in public making a fool of ourselves. these are all good mascot qualities!

        Mascots are usually loveable, and she isn't loveable.

            With the frequency that she, and her sister, is popping out kids . . . I'd say she is VERY lovable

              How about how her mother wrote a book on parenting?

              But still, I don't think she is not lovable enough to be a mascot.

                  hi all i've been looming in the shadows regard to telecom, satellite technology and good o' home theatre.
                  you see i went to school and studied low-voltage electricity and part of the course including classes on the aforementioned.

                  so, no, i am not a guru per se, but i do have education on the topics.

                  1) the satellite comapanies all share the same "parent satellites" which in most cases for our hemisphere, most are owned by DirecTV.

                  the satelliet "beams" its signals to particular areas in what i can only explain as a "circle" on a region of the map.

                  for true National cable stations (HBO, Skinamax etc), they have a "larger" circle of transmitted bandwidths.

                  your "local" channels transmit into "smaller bandwidth circles". for example many of my in-laws are directly between chicago and south bend,IN. however they get the Michiana local stations based out of both south bend and elkhart,IN.

                  2) HD tech talk
                  whats the diff between progressive scan and interlace (ex 720i or 1080p)
                  the image on a "P" HDTV starts at the top and works it way down (refresh rate) where-as an "I" HDTV scans "every other" line, top to bottom then"goes" back and refreshes the "odd numbers"

                  plasma, lcd and dlp: lcd's are getting better and better and the decrease in price is making the HDTV more affordable in many American homes

                  plasma, once a taboo due to a rather quick burn-out time, has drastically improved it's technology and offer the best quality of modern HDTV's. just get ready to pay some serious cash for one.

                  dlp: the "mirrors" for one reason or another is not nearly as popular as the first 2, and i know that it's color pallette pales when compared to either a plasma or lcd, just get real close to one for example, or turn on the lights!!!

                  3)Home Theatre
                  so what does the number and dot number mean?
                  the first number is the # of speaker satellites while the point 1 represents the LFE, low-frequency effects more commonly known as the the sub-woofer. (ex 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1)

                  Dolby is the parent of the technology, DTS (Digital Theater System) offers what some think to be crisper highs and heavier lows and Lucas' THX is basically a tweaked version of Dolby. (it doesn't hurt that movies he produces are specifically tweaked so that you really enjoy that THX sound)

                  in the end it's all about you, the consumer and your needs.

                          no problem guys!

                          as for speaker mount and placement, the question is if you have little ones who might be tempted to mess with daddy's toys.

                          if not your surround speakers should be mounted at about "ear level", with your center speaker more or less directly above or below the TV. (if you have kids/toddlers- i mounted mine at around 4.5 ft or so- it DOES detract somewhat from the experience but what the hey. besides my system is not really that high end and now is dated since i bought it at the PX back in oh-four)

                          in more advanced systems they will have a feature that lets you create your "sweet spot": this is achieved by either manually programming the distance of each individual sattellite speaker in relation to your TV and Center channel.

                          Some realy advanced recievers have an RF module that sets up distances for you with a push of a button. (this is when you hear that burst of white noise.)
