I think I'll post here now.
Like dobyblue, I posted on High Def Digest for the last several months. Unfortunately I was banned for good with no explanation thus far (they PM the reason but the ban prevents you from reading the message).
Well, I'm in Southern California and I work for a high-end custom integrator. I put together proposals for salesmen, so I do most of the project's engineering, I research new product and keep up to date on pretty much everything going on in the CE industry as it pertains to residential integration.
I've had occasion to chat with Jerry over email, he's a good guy. Good to be here.
