1080i vs. 1080p

1080i vs. 1080p

HDTV: 1080i Vs. 1080p? What’s the difference? HDTV (High-Definition Television) offers a clearer and more detailed picture because it contains more information. Television pictures are made up of many dots or picture elements (pixels) that form the image you see, therefore by using more of these pixels, in a high-definition (HD) transmission a more clear and sharp image is available. Normally, an... [Read more about this Home Theater Option]

DVD Server

DVD Server

Whether your music arrives via ripping, streaming, or downloading, it’s not difficult to see that hard drives have won the music-storage battle — and it’s easy to see why. Once music has been rejiggered into handy data files, so much more can be done with it beyond being able to carry 10,000 songs in your pocket.

Game Console Controls

Video game console upgrades can be as simple as adding a game controller to your system or as complex as adding game features and functionality to your automated handheld remote that turns on your game system, switches video to correct input, and turns your amplifier on to correct audio input.

Remote Controls

Remote Controls

Universal remote controls can be great for integrating the control of a home theater system. However, all infrared (IR) remotes suffer one significant drawback: they must be pointed at the component they are controlling, with a clear line of sight. If components are hidden and/or located in several different areas of the room, it’s difficult or impossible to operate them in an integrated manner.... [Read more about this Home Theater Option]

Power protection is one of those things that home-theater shoppers often overlook until it’s too late.
