    Announcing Team for ESPN-HD NFL coverage

    The announcing team of Mike Patrick, Paul McGuire, and Joe Theisman is really beginning to get on my nerves. Generally, they do a good job, but these guys are so lavish in their praise of the players that it makes me ill. During last night's game (Baltimore vs. Indianapolis), Manning threw an...

    The Boys of H Company on 601

    I'm really getting to like watching this channel. For anyone who is interested in history from WWII, this movie was very interesting. It is the story of H Company from the 5th Marine Division, and tells the story of the battle for Iwo Jima. The battle lasted for about 3 weeks, and H company...

    $500 for Professional Calibration???

    I'm wondering if professional calibration is really worth 500 bucks. Of course, the TV installer thought I should do it without thinking twice. But I held out, thinking I knew enough to adjust the picture to the way I like it, plus at the time, the Voom equipment swap was looming and I didn't...
