I'm interested too in how that's set up. I've got a 51" HDTV, but no tuner and no HD service (too expensive for my budget right now)... but if I could get a HD over the air tuner for the computer and route it to the TV that'd be sweet.

Pardon my curiosity, but how is this set up?
I have an HDTV wonder [PCI] and All-in-Wonder 9800Pro [AGP]. The HD tuner [as well as the SD tuners both the HDW and the AIW] just run off a standard antenna. The AIW outputs in VGA, DVI and Component. I usually catch the stuff TiVOed onto the HD on my 19' LCD. But if I want the full 57" experience, I can hook up either the DVI or Component to my Sony.

Muck around below to get your feet wet on the issue.

Certainly. Ill try to keep it as simple as possible. I have downstairs in my home theater a HD Tivo, DVD Player, Xbox and PS2. These are connected to a component video matrix switcher that has 2 independent output. (each output can watch whatever source it wants.) One output goes straight to my Hitachi and the other goes upstairs to a component amplifier and splits off the other 3 TVs. With RF remotes and Controllers I can control all my components from upstairs. Like now im watching Tivo in my office on the RCA.


The only thing i dont have on the network is my Home Theater Computer thats hooked up to the Hitachi via DVI. Nothing like playing games on that TV. :D

I bought a Sony KDF-42WE655 42-inch LCD projection TV in July for $1788 at Tweeter. Near my house we have Best Buy, Circuit City and Tweeter all within a half of mile of each other but Tweeter has much smaller stores in size, they only sell TV's, DVD's and sound systems but they are growing and have over a thousand locations. All three had about the same price, but Tweeter I heard had knowledgeable sales people and good customer service, which they did. In fact, even though the store is only 7 miles from my house the earliest delivery date was going to be ten days, so my salesman delivered the TV himself two days later in his van.
http://products.consumerguide.com/media/frontend/productImages/4/4/00000101644-SonyKDF42WE65542inchHDTV-large.jpeg
The TV is projection but is only 15" deep and weights only about 60 pounds. The picture is incredible in high definition, it also has a built in HD tuner. I was replacing a Sony 32" and a JVC 32", the Sony had a much better picture between those two and I always had good luck with other Sony products so I had decided on Sony. After reading several reviews online, everyone was very happy with this unit. The only downside is the bulb has to be replaced at about 4,000 hours, online they average about $199 for a replacement. Since my two recliners are only about ten feet from the TV and the 32" were no problem seeing, I didn't consider looking for a jumbo TV. They make this same model also in a 50", 55" and a 60". In the showroom it's hard to tell, but at home at ten feet, this 42" is plenty big.

I had Comcast basic cable which is about 75 channels for $53 dollars a month, no set-top box required. I replaced my Sony DVD player with a Sony progressive-scan DVD player and saw some good improvement in the picture, however television viewing wasn't any better except by going up to channels in the 100's I found the three local networks in high-def but they were on some weird numbers like 101.2. I had Comcast install digital cable with a Pacer HD box, at first I wasn't sure it was worth the price, $63 + $5 for the box. All the channels above channel 75 are digital, not high-def, but a much better picture and there are about 75 channels in this range. Now I very seldom go into the lower channels but Comcast said they will have all of them in digital very soon. We picked up about 25 movie channels free, all commercial free unedited, like Encore, Flix, Sundance and Movieplex plus high def on our local NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX Balt, Fox D.C., WB and Public TV as well as high-def ESPN, TNT, INHD, INHD2, Discovery. They also offered us a deal which I accepted, all the HBO and Showtime channels, about 20 channels for two months free and then $10 a month after that and then I added Cinemax another 10 channels. Each of them have a high-def channel, HBO, Showtime and Cinemax plus each has movies- on-demand you can watch anytime you want, plus Comcast has on-demand also, which makes about 500 movies I can watch and stop anytime I want for free. My bill now totals about $90, but to me it's well worth it and my usual 8 rentals a month at Blockbuster has stopped. The menu is also great, you can continue watching the show your on and see the lineup for every channel with a complete write-up and even set a reminded to pop-up when that show comes on. When scanning the schedule if a channel you want comes up, just hit enter and it changes the channel and if the reminder pops-up, just hit enter as well.

TV viewing is night and day different for me than just four months ago, I also placed one of my other 32" TV's next to this one, so essentially I have picture in a picture but on a much greater scale. I didn't think I would like using a remote control other than the Sony that came with the set, but the Comcast remote is great and works the volume and everything.

The general consensus is that DirecTV will be replacing all HD hardware with MPEG4-compliant hardware. AFAIK, nothing official from DirectTV yet. If they do not do that, I will be cancelling my subscription as fast as humanly possible...

I've only got $199 in the Tivo, and I can move the drive to anything, so I'm not worried about them changing to MPEG4. They are always good about free or low/cost upgrades as long as you sign on the dotted line for another year or two.

Capacity with a single 400gb drive is 50h HD, 337SD

Even if it's obsolete in January, just having it one football season has been worth the $199 to me.

How many times need it be reiterated, the standards are different, but which is better depends on what you are watching.
720 lines are less than 1080, but progressive refresh is faster than interlaced. So static material will look better at 1080i, while moving material will look more fluid at 720p.
This distinction may be heightened on the X-Box 360 if the material is mastered at 1080, and the 720 output is downrezzed with poor algorithms at the corners of the letters.

Ummm, because an HD-DVR can't

surf the web
write a letter
keep track of my finances
burn DVDs
store and print my photos
keep track of birthdays and appointments
etc., etc.

That's to say, my computer is not an HT dedicated unit.

The HD-Wonder card I got for $99 at Microcenter in a day after x-mas sale. Everything else, I'd have in the computer anyways.

Plus, the HD DVR, when I got my Dish811 unit [free with 1 year HD programming commitment], was $850, no deals or specials, and a 4 month wait. And to date, I'm pretty sure you can't send the data anywhere but to a television.

John Matrix
01-14-2006, 06:46 PM
I have Tivo Server, and I can send the data to my PC. (Granted this is standard def, but the next generation standalone's from Tivo aren't far off) I can see why you'd want it set up that way if you weren't dedicating an entire computer to the task of HD-DVR, but it seemed as though you were.

Why'd you go w/ E* over direct? The Direct units were 700 out of the store at BB, and now have a $200 MIR.

I have Tivo Server, and I can send the data to my PC. (Granted this is standard def, but the next generation standalone's from Tivo aren't far off) I can see why you'd want it set up that way if you weren't dedicating an entire computer to the task of HD-DVR, but it seemed as though you were.

Why'd you go w/ E* over direct? The Direct units were 700 out of the store at BB, and now have a $200 MIR.


Enlighten me more about the Tivo server please

Tivo Server is a program you can download from the Tivo website. Once you have Tivo server you can connect your Tivo to your home network via a wireless adapter (if you have a wireless network setup) or a USB network adapter. Then you can transfer recordings to your PC for recording, and view photos and listen to music through your TV or home theater system.

I agree if you are watching anything other than High-Def or Dvd's a projector is not worth buying. The biggest con is the bulb. Mine is a 300$ replacement when it goes bad. Hopefully between 2000 and 2500 hours.

Here is how I had the home theater set up in the old place....my sound system is different than is what is in the pic; I went to a Klipsch surround sound setup using RF5s for the mains, an RC7 for the center, RS5s for the rears and a Hsu sub. I'm not an audiophile, and for music there are better speakers, but for HT, I really like the sound of the Klipsch speakers. I need to get my basement finished so that I can put in my theater in my new house. Currently, my pj is in the 2nd floor LR and it isn't light controlled so I can only use it at night.
