How To Calibrate Your HDTV Using The Top Set-up Discs By Adrienne Maxwell May 2006 So you’ve waded through all of the confusion about HDTV vs. EDTV, DLP vs. plasma vs. LCD and digital vs. analog connections, and boldly dropped your hard-earned cash on a new digital television. You’ve ordered an HDTV package from your cable or satellite provider, you’ve hooked up your DVD player, and now all you want to do is sit back and enjoy the experience. But wait.

The Pros and Cons of Extended Warranties By Jerry Del Colliano April 2006 Anyone who has ever purchased an electronic device or component of any kind in the last 20 years has been offered the chance to buy an extended warranty. The question still remains as pertinent today as it was years ago: are extended warranties worth it? The simple answer is: it depends. In the old days of high-end audio and stereo you made investments in analog devices (speakers, amps, preamps, turntables, tube television sets), which were either awkward to move or were likely built with expensive analog parts. Today’s home theater systems are built more like computers and have lifespans that reflect more on the disposable nature of their processors than the analog nature of high-end audio components of years gone by.

AV Education on RHT HDMI: One Cable to Replace Them All? Written by Bryan Dailey Staring at the back of a modern home theater receiver or AV preamp can be a scary thing for inexperienced AV enthusiasts. The number of connections on a higher-end piece can be overwhelming, with multiple video input and output types ranging from composite to component to S-Video and DVI/HDMI. The audio options can be just as daunting with toslink, AES-EBU, composite and digital RCA audio connections all filling up a great deal of real estate on the receiver or AV preamp. Assuming a user can figure out how to best configure the system and put the right cables in the right connections on the back of the gear, the process is only half over at this point.
