Picked up the Smart LCD 1000 yesterday and will hook it up today....including the coax just to see how it works. I also wanted the phone line protection for when I go back to StarChoice in the summer.
The place I got it is a smaller computer sales and repair retailer and he stocks the 1000 all the time. He says it is a very good seller for home theatre applications.
I'll provide feedback on how it all goes in the next couple of days.
