re: DVR for Direct TV - pheroy
So the condo has DTV available, but it's not "your" DTV - right? I don't think this is going to work as they don't really connect any DVRs other than their own. I would call DTV and ask them if they have any suggestions, though. What is your regular TV service? You might be able to just take a Fi...

re: Question about the Asus XT8 Mesh router? - pheroy
Yeah I would definitely take the step to run a separate Cat 6/7 to each location if it's not prohibitive for some reason. Connect a 5 or 8 port switch off the main router to connect them....

re: Mounting in ceiling speakers (also please recommend me some speakers) - pheroy
For Atmos speakers you definitely shouldn't need to step up to an 8" woofer assuming you already have a sub as part of the setup. Positioning all the speakers well helps. Think of your main left & right speakers in a stereo setup. A correctly positioned stereo pair will allow for good sound images b...

re: GenX noob needs help on gaming laptop for music production - pheroy
[quote]Anything else y’all would recommend in the $1500 or less range? [/quote] That one you linked is a pretty good deal on the spec. You'd have to move up to the Core i9 to get much of an improvement and I'm not sure it would matter for your son's purposes. Here's what looks like a good deal o...

re: GenX noob needs help on gaming laptop for music production - pheroy
Ok - yeah that AMD 3050U is pretty low end and will get smoked overall by that laptop which has an 11th gen Core i7 (most recent is 12th gen). Depends somewhat on how the software uses multiple cores as the i7 has 8 vs just 2 on the 3050 but even single core is going to be faster on the i7. ...

re: GenX noob needs help on gaming laptop for music production - pheroy
What would help is if we knew a bit more of the specs esp the CPU of the current HP. Do this: Start -> type "dxdiag". It will open a window with a System Information section on the 1st tab. If you can post a screenshot, do that but at least the "Processor" would be good. If it's a fairly recent H...

re: Sony announces new 4K laser based projectors - pheroy
The big thing lasers do to help the "washed out" look when you have ambient light on the screen, is provide higher brightness with less compromises than a bulb. For brighter programming like sports or animated movies it helps. For darker content it doesn't help quite as much b/c that black "floor" i...

re: Sony announces new 4K laser based projectors - pheroy
I've had a JVC for 5+ years so I haven't followed that specific Sony issue much, aside from generally seeing that it seemed to have been improved but probably not entirely eliminated. There doesn't seem to be nearly as much discussion about it as years ago and certainly not as much as when it was a ...

Sony announces new 4K laser based projectors - pheroy
Speaking of projectors... JVC introduced a great new 4K lineup a few months ago with new lower price points for laser (still started at $11K though), and now the other shoe has dropped with Sony introducing their new 4K lineup - which include a laser powered model, VPL-XW5000ES, at $6K.

re: Projector screen advice - pheroy
As always with this type of question, budget is a major parameter. What size screen are you looking to do. Also just to confirm when you say rear projection you're talking about the projector being behind the screen not in front. (I.e. most home theater type setups are front projection.) I haven'...

re: Audiophile/Vinyl Thread - Post Pics, Advice, Questions, Setups, etc. - pheroy
Rant mode on... I decided a few years ago to get back into vinyl with the goal being to digitize some of the irreplaceable LPs I have plus check out some of the newer high quality reissues of various jazz records and so on. I had an old Denon DP-45F and a friend texted me the day before Christma...
