Here's a chance for us to give our valued members another service. Ilya and I will be covering the CEDIA show and want to know what YOU want to see, in effect, to have your own editor at the show and find out what's important to you.

So let us know in this thread what products and areas of interest you have. Looking for budget Projector? Or a flat panel for the bedroom? Or do have the $$ for a new 1080p setup with display device and HD-DVD or BR player?

CEDIA is huge, if you want to know how to outfit your theater with custom signs, or looking for home media server solutions just ask, we're at your disposal.

Me? I want an HDMI audio input for my Meridian processor but I think I'll ask Bob for that myself :)

After that, I want solid HDMI switches that actually work cleanly with all sources, the 2nd gen Toshiba HD-DVD player that loads discs faster, and a (usable) Terabyte NAS at the $500 price point.

Cheers,

Info I would like to find out from CEDIA.

Any and all information on the following rear projection tv's including your opinion on picture quality, and how they compare. Do either have HDMI 1.3 or only 1.2?

1) Sony KDS-R70XBR2 (SXRD)

2) JVC HD 70FH97 (HD-ILA)

Thanks in advance,
Ben Music

Vantage Point Mounting System

Vantage is going to be showing a hot new product at CEDIA this year. I think you guys are going to love it. Give me your feedback when you see the EVO and what YOU think the best applications will be.

Automation, automation, automation.

A media player/client that works with MPEG-4/AVC High Profile; or in English one that plays HD MPEG-4 captures ;)

Ask Dish Networks what size HD TV they monitor their HD feeds at dishquality. Find out if they are true 1080, HD, and not not ED...

If not at least 50 inches suggest they upgrade...

Can someone check out:

1. The new Yamaha RX-V2700 A/V receiver?
2. New Sony XBR2 line.
3. Anything related to SED.
4. Tivo Series3 HD DVR.
5. Sony QAM/ATSC HD DVR (replacements for DHG-HDD250/500), if anything.

Thanks!

Ask the Directv numbskulls when the hell more HD national channels are coming. Also, ask them if they are really in-touch with what their customers really want. Ask them if they have a comment of the HD lite issue. Oh, and ask them if they consider themselves the leader in HD programming. That answer should be hilarious.

They had one Dish RCA TV and a 40 Inch Samsung TV in their Quality Control room at the uplink.

I commented that both sets looked like crap and was told they don't ISF them as they want to have what most people have in their house a non calibrated TV. They did say they do have one calibrated TV that they can also refer to if they need to.
