Deal of the Day: Niko OTP-3211W 32-Inch HD-Ready LCD TV with DVI Input

Cablevision's Network DVR Gets Shot Down in Court.

Last year we told you how Cablevision was about to have a fight on it's hands with Hollywood over it's idea to offer network-based DVRs. Well, last week the courts supported Hollywood's position by squashing Cablevision's plans. According to Reuters:

Cablevision Systems Corp. has lost a legal battle against several Hollywood studios and television networks to introduce a network-based digital video recorder service to its subscribers.

The article continues:

Cablevision was sued last May by several Hollywood studios and television networks, including those owned by Time Warner Inc. , News Corp. , CBS Corp. and Walt Disney Co. , which charged that the planned service would violate U.S. copyright laws.

Cablevision had hoped a network-based DVR system, called Remote Storage DVR or RS-DVR, would have done away with the need for the installation of hundreds of thousands of digital set-top boxes in subscribers' homes.

This would potentially have saved Cablevision significant administration and maintenance costs. It already has installed over 500,000 set-top boxes in homes in its area.

Even though I can see both sides of this, I really hope the remote DVRs become a reality. As I mentioned before I think Cablevision shot themselves in the foot by announcing their remote DVR plans without consulting Hollywood Studios first.

We'll keep you posted if any good news comes out of this but we won't hold our breath.

DVD Region Codes Explained

We've covered this in the past but lately I've gotten more emails asking about DVD region codes. Region codes are important when buying DVDs online, especially on auction sites like Ebay. You may find a great deal on your favorite movie, but if it's the wrong code, you won't be able to play it on a standard DVD player (you can buy region unlocked DVD players). Here is a breakdown of the DVD region codes:

If a disc plays in more than one region it will have more than one number on the globe.

1: U.S., Canada, U.S. Territories
2: Japan, Europe, South Africa, and Middle East (including Egypt)
3: Southeast Asia and East Asia (including Hong Kong)
4: Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central America, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean
5: Eastern Europe (Former Soviet Union), Indian subcontinent, Africa, North Korea, and Mongolia
6: China
7: Reserved
8: Special international venues (airplanes, cruise ships, etc.)

Deal of the Day: Sony DAV-FC9 DVD Dream System

Something that really amazes me is how many people I know who spend tons of money on new HDTV but don't have a home theater system. You just won't get the quality sound out of your TV speakers that you can get with even a low-end home theater setup. Well if you're looking for a higher-end system for a great price, be sure to look at the Sony DAV-FC9 DVD Dream System deal at Amazon:

Amazon.com Product Description:

With 650 watts of total power (100 x 5, plus a 150-watt powered subwoofer), the DAV-FC9 DVD Dream System is Sony's top-end home theater system, furnishing users with ultraprecise images and sound. The system comes complete with a receiver, five-disc DVD/SACD/CD changer, an AM/FM tuner, four front and rear floor-standing speakers, a center speaker, and an active powered subwoofer. The DVD changer is compatible with CD-R/RW, SACD, MP3, and JPEG (with slide show) formats, and its 480p progressive-scan output guarantees sharp image display.
For superior audio while watching movies, the Dream System offers Dolby Digital, DTS, and Dolby Pro Logic II decoding. Other audio features include an S-Master full digital amplifier, a bass enhancement function, and Sony's Digital Cinema Sound system, which re-creates the sound fields of three of the world's best-known cinema studios.

The DAV-FC9 is equipped for compatibility, with component-video and S-video outputs, a digital input for satellite TV, two analog AV inputs and one output, two video signal inputs and four outputs, and a 3.5 mm mini pin headphone jack. For convenience sake, the system features color-coded speaker connections, along with DVD/CD/SACD text that displays onscreen and a preprogrammed luminous remote control. The system comes with a one-year warranty on parts and labor.

Currently Amazon has the DAV-FC9 under $250 which is an absolute steal. Click the link below for more details.

First Look: Choosing an HDTV for Apple TV

Looks like Apple TV started shipping this week. If you're not familiar with Apple TV here's a blurb from a decent article over at Macworld.com:


But first, a recap: Apple TV is a small device (7.7 inches square and 1.1 inches high) that’s destined for your living room. It attaches to a widescreen digital TV and, optionally, a home theater sound system. After you’ve hooked up an Apple TV and turned on on your TV set, you’ll see a menu of options that are similar to those you’d find on an iPod or in Apple’s Front Row software for the Mac.

In addition to connecting to your TV, the Apple TV connects to your home network, most commonly via 802.11 wireless networking. (Yes, the device has an Ethernet port on the back as well, if your network is wired rather than wireless.) Once that's done, Apple TV can act as a bridge between your computer—which has a hard drive filled with movies, TV shows, music, and photos—and your TV set.

Sounds pretty exciting huh? Of course to get the most out of Apple TV you'll want to invest in the right HDTV. Macworld.com has another nice article that discusses getting the right HDTV for Apple TV that starts out:

With so many HDTVs out there, how do you decide which is right for you? A good start is to first figure out your budget and the size of set you’re looking for. Once you have an idea of what you are willing to spend and how big you want your viewing experience to be, you’ll only be looking at a subset of the various technologies. Then decide which features are most important to you, and try to see a bunch of TVs in action at a few different stores. (We’ve got some recommendations below.) And if you don’t have a surround sound stereo system, it might be a good time to check those out too—most HD programming is delivered with 5.1-channel sound, as are the standard DVDs you already watch.

Overall the list of TVs is pretty small but we agree with their the top item on their list:

Vizio P42HDTV ($1,200): 42-inch plasma display has a bright screen with good image quality and a low-price, but has somewhat over-saturated green tones. Has HDMI and component inputs, integrated HD tuner, 10,000-to-1 contrast ratio, 1,024-by-768 pixel native resolution, and supports 720p and 1080i video.

Be sure to check out the complete article.

Hitachi to Offer HDTVs with Removable Hard Drives

Hitachi has just announced they're going to offer TVs with removable hard drives. Is it me or is that one of the greatest announcements ever? According to the press release:

TOKYO, March 20 - Japan's Hitachi Ltd. said on Tuesday it plans to sell the world's first high-definition TVs with removable hard drives.

Users can expand high-definition recording capacity with the new hard drives and Hitachi hopes the feature will boost sales and keep steep price falls at bay, executives said.

Hitachi has promised to bring its flat TV business into the black in the January-March quarter.

Japan's biggest electronics conglomerate will equip plasma TVs and liquid crystal display (LCD) TVs with 250-gigabyte internal hard drives and removable 80-GB or 160-GB drives starting on April 20 in Japan.

We don't have anymore details yet but we'll keep you posted. Hopefully we'll also see some other manufacturers offer TVs with removable hard drives in the near future.

DIY: Turn your Indoor Pool Into a Home Theater

Earlier this year we told you about the Star Trek Home Theater but now we've found something even cooler. What if told you that you could turn an unused indoor pool into movie central? Yeah I know there are a few of you out there asking why you would want to do that to a perfectly good pool. I guess if you're not swimmers, why not? An article at ElectronicHouse.com tells about a family that turned their unused pool into a pretty cool home theater system:

So when the owners of this Wisconsin home purchased their residence, they decided to convert the indoor in-ground pool that came with the property into a fully functional home theater. Flooring and carpeting were added to the concrete bottom of the 20-by-40-foot area, and draperies were hung over the room’s windows and metal walls to soften up the space. However, not all signs of the building’s former life were removed. Wiring for the audio and video components was pulled through the pool’s existing plumbing systems, and the slope of the pool floor was maintained to create a stadium-style seating arrangement.

Very Nice! Be sure to check out the article and a few pictures at ElectronicHouse.com

Cool Weekend Project - Build an A/V Switcher

I really dig geeky do-it-yourself projects and Engadget has a really cool one this week. They've actually got a tutorial on building your own homemade A/V switcher that's well written with some great pictures. The review states:

In this How-To we'll show you how to wire up your own A/V switcher which you can expand and use any way you'd like, for composite, S-Sideo, component, even VGA signals. Sure, you can buy a newer, really expensive TV's with multiple inputs (even component), but for those of us whose credit cards aren't quite up to that challenge, more inputs for less cash would be rather desirable. Let's get started!

For this project's example we'll be building a 3 input, single output composite video, left / right audio switcher. This will allow us to, say, switch between SNES, NES, and the God of War II adapter (aka PS2) using the single input on the back of the TV. Quality. We'll also explain how to wire up a VGA or S-Video port as well.

What's really nice about the tutorial is that it gives you not only the name of the parts you need but the part number also. While the project might be a little complicated for the beginner, it's definitely a cool project for someone with a little tech savvy and some extra time on their hands. Be sure to read the entire DYI.

Review: Sony RM-VL600 Remote Control

You've probably noticed my obsession with remote controls. The problem is that I want a "smart" remote that doesn't require a degree to use so it's nice when an inexpensive "learning" remote like the Sony RM-VL600 Remote Control comes along. RemoteCentral.com has an in-depth seven page review (yep, 7 pages) of the RM-VL600 that states:

Sony's proud tradition of economical universal remotes that are actually usable continues with the very capable RM-VL600 at a price of only $29.95. And while I've always been a fan of products that do more while costing less, I can't say that that the RM-VL600 is a completely successful upgrade over the RM-VL710, although truthfully that opinion is almost entirely due to the unusually high expectations imparted by that remote.

More devices, more macros, a larger code database and a better key layout are all great improvements, but attempting to deliver this at such a low price point has both impacted overall quality and continued to prevent certain much-needed features from being added, such as button backlighting. But with that said, in a market where price really is the most important factor this remote simply will not disappoint when held up against the currently-available competition.

Sounds pretty decent for a remote around $25.00. Be sure to check out the full review.

First Look: Yamaha AVX-LC30 TV Rack

For those of building the "perfect" home theater system, the stand or rack you use is sometimes just as important as the TV hardware itself. One of the coolest looking AV TV racks has to be the Yamaha AVX-LC30 TV Rack. The AVX-LC30 is a good looking piece of furniture that has components built in and according to NewLaunches.com:


The rack is made for 32 - 42" LCD TV"s and the top board can hold upto 50kgs of weight. The center unit holds the amplifier which delivers an output of 35W×6ch while compiling to Dolby digital and Dolby professional logic II. The rack comes complete with a sub-woofer and two speakers, however you can also add an optional DVD player DVD-S30.

The AVX-LC30 will be available around mid-March in Japan at around just under $800. At that price for such a good looking piece of furniture, we sure hope it comes to the US soon. We'll keep you posted if we hear more.

Remote Wrangler - Remote Control Organization for Complete Dorks!

If you've totally lost it and you want to attach remote controls to your head via something that looks like a modified jock strap, here's a product for you:

Whether a hardcore audiophile or casual TV watcher, somehow, we still end up with way more remotes and portable handheld devices than we can handle. Inevitably, that many devices can only result in many valuable hours wasted searching for the lost and misplaced... but not if the Remote Wrangler has anything to do with it.

The Multimedia Remote Control Wrangler (aka Remote Wrangler) has taken a novel approach to remote control storage that will be sure to take the world by storm, head first. It will certainly win the hearts (and heads) of those frustrated consumers who have had enough and are ready to regain control over their lives and remote controls. No more digging under seat cushions through Cheetos and Fig Newton crumbs searching for the remote you had just 5 minutes ago. All your controls are now only a head scratch away.
Multimedia Remote Control Wrangler

If you can get past the slightly unusual concept of storing devices on your noggin, you may grow to appreciate the ease of using the Remote Wrangler. Keeping comfort and accessibility as the main focus, remote controls (and practically any small handheld device) can easily be attached (and detached) with a Velcro-like material. Made from a stretchable fabric, the headpiece comfortably conforms to the face and feels like a second skin, minus the acne. As an added benefit, a surprisingly quiet and effective battery powered and remote controlled temporal massager is built into the headpiece.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the built-in massager. This will definitely be a gift for someone you hate the person who has everything.

Ambisound HTS8100 Arriving 2nd Quarter of 2007

We told you about the Phillip's Ambisound HTS8100 earlier this year and now it's been announced that it'll hit the streets in Q2 of this year. The HTS8100 which was introduced at CES earlier this year is a great addition to your new flat screen TV. According to the Press Release at Phillips.com:

The Ambisound SoundBar features five amplifiers, similar to a 5.1 system, integrated into a single horizontal sound bar. The HTS8100 uses a host of technologies including array processing, precise driver positioning and psycho-acoustic innovation to achieve the full surround sound performance.

For maximum audio quality and clarity, the Ambisound system features a 3-band equalizer and DoubleBASS™ deep bass performance, creating a smooth cross over between sounds. The speakers feature soft dome tweeters for increased clarity and clear voice performance and are designed for maximum efficiency for full midrange performance. Additionally, users will enjoy the Smart Surround™ feature, which automatically ensures correct surround sound settings whether a movie or music is playing.

While the HTS8100 is pretty sweet looking, at $999 the inclusion of a standard DVD player instead of an HD DVD player is pretty disappointing. Still, as far as design we're pretty much in love with the Ambisound HTS8100.

Review: Toshiba HD-XA2 HD DVD Player

Lately we've seen quite a few new HD DVD players hitting the streets and here's another one to take a peek at. Business Week has a review of the powerful but pricey HD-XA2 HD DVD Player from Toshiba. The review states:

Better still, the XA2 is among the first to broadcast via High Definition Multimedia Interface 1.3. This is the most high-tech interface now available for video players, enabling the device to broadcast sound in the best available audio formats for home theater, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master. That's a step up from the Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD formats that already sound similar to sitting in the theater. The result is a home movie experience that seems as if you're not really at home at all.

HDMI 1.3 has another key function. It enables the player to display richer, more vibrant colors. I noticed this when watching Harrison Ford's crime drama Firewall. Ford's character is an IT professional who works in a rather bland office and lives in a relatively monochromatic home. But far from appearing washed out, those settings had a richness of light and color that I attribute to the player. Toshiba's XA2 also lets users fine-tune color to reflect personal tastes.

One of our great features of this player is it also "upconverts":

The trouble with any next-generation DVD player is that few of the movies available at the local video rental store or in most home collections are likely to be high-definition discs. But that doesn't mean forgoing the HD viewing experience altogether. This player is capable of "upconverting" regular DVDs to HD resolution. Such a feature is major plus, considering that replacing an existing collection with HD discs can get expensive, with retail prices ranging between $25 and $40.

The biggest drawback of the HD-XA2 is the MSRP is $999.00 so you might want to sit back till the price drops some.
