  1. Telus IPTV (also known as Optik TV)
    I've been using Telus Optik for about 5 years with the CIS430 PVR and Actiontec V1000H modem/router. Generally everything has worked OK. However for audio until recently I have been using a 2.1 speaker system (stereo plus a small subwoofer), so I have been unaware of any possible problems...
  2. A/V Receivers and Amplifiers
    I am buying a new TV (Panasonic plasma TCP55VT60). I already have about an 8 year old Denon AVR1707 receiver that I am using with my current TV/surround system. I don't know much about receivers and would like to know whether I should purchase a new one with the new TV. If so, what features...
  3. Home Theatre Construction
    I have to post this as a huge thanks for all the information I found on this site. I am a long time lurker.... I never did have to post a Q because they were already all answered! This past year I took the plunge and did a big home reno that included a new basement with a Home Theatre/family...

  6. Shaw Cable HD tuner and HD PVR Discussion
    A friend noticed that while watching some HD channels it will not be coming through on his receiver in 5.1 even though it says 5.1 in the guide. He has shown me where a program will be coming through on right front and rear only and no other channels have anything coming through then the next...
  7. A/V Receivers and Amplifiers
    I recently picked up a Yamaha HTR-6250 and have been rather happy with it, since it's managed to detect my TV and PVR with no problem, and delivers pretty good sound and a picture as good as if the devices were directly hooked to the TV itself. However, I have a question regarding the DTS-HD...
  8. Home Theatre Corner
    On Boxing Day I bought the Energy Take Classic and Bose Acoustimass 10 Series III surround sound systems and will keep one of these. The AM10-III were $700 from $1500 and since it was the last one, I bought it; it is still sealed in the box. I then found the Energy Take Classic set for $400 from...
