I definately agree with Maxx, get the panamax. I bought the 4300 about a month before the Northeast blackout in 2003. I was in the middle of watching a movie when there was a sudden surge, then loss of power, then surge. The 4300 performed flawlessly! On battery-backup. I would suggest belkin rather than APC. It seems that belkin's batteries tend to last longer than APC. Also, if hooked to a computer, you can do a drain test on the battery every so often if you still get nervous from the old days of laptop batteries. I ori ..
All you need to do is remove the subwoofer from it's housing and fill the housing with polyfill. Make sure to leave room for the subwoofer cone. It's very easy, I did it in about 5 minutes when I had the SW40.[addsig]
I can definately attest to the worth of the panamax protector. I have the 4300 and it worked flawlessly during the Northeast Blackout of 2003. I actually didn't lose power for the blackout oddly enough, but I did have a huge spike and drop in power before the power was restored a few moments later. If I didn't have it hooked up, I highly doubt that the components listed in my sig would be working now. Also, I use Nextel as my wireless service provider and their phones are notorious for emitting RFI. I am the only person I know who doesn't have interference while t ..
I am looking for a way to use a quad channel multiplexor to split my projector's image into 4 separate channels. I want to be able to watch 4 football games at the same time on my screen. I have been able to find a couple multiplexors in my price range, but it seems that I would need to also get 4 cable boxes to be able to do this? Does this seem right. The multiplexor I am leaning towards uses for it's inputs and s-video for it's output. I am going to send that to my DA4ES and use the receiver as a video switch. Any suggestions o ..

I have a Panamax 1000 and a Panamax Max and they both came through for me twice in recent lightning storms as several local substations got toasted. There is no better feeling than to come home during an emergency and find out that Panamax has saved the day. _Maxx Most definately. I'm actually looking at adding the max 5100.[addsig]
Thanks Maxx!! It is great knowing that I am protected with the panamax. I actually got it just before the northeast blackout last year and it saved everything when the initial surge of power came in. When it happened, it freaked me out, but everything worked flawlessly. Jehill - Below the center speaker is my digital cable box. The speaker is actually raised about an inch above the unit, but the angle of the picture doesn't show it well. The projector is mostly used for watching movies, sports, and boxing. The TV is used for everything else because I ..
Sorry guys, I removed the pics from where they are hosted. I'll take some new ones with the flash on and repost. Toli - The remote I have is the Home Theater Master MX500. I had the pronto pro TSU6000, but it kept freezing up on me, so I decided to get rid of it. It's nice having hard buttons again so I can feel for a button (although the remote does have backlighting just in case) Thanks for all the positive replies everyone![addsig]
haven't been here in a long while, but just got a digital camera and thought I'd share. Thanks for all the help in getting all my equipment _________________ [addsig] [ This message was edited by: slobeatz on 2004-09-15 18:54 ]
Thanks for all your answers Duncan. I ended up buying an infocus x1, it got excellent reviews on projectorcentral.com and it was over $2000 cheaper than the sony. Also, I was able to get a 20ft component/VGA adapter cable from the same site that sold me the projector. Thanks again! [addsig]
Actually I have another question. I was looking at the infocus z1 projector and I saw that it had an adapter that took a component video input and converted it to s-video. If I did that I would have the use of progressive scan, but would the quality of the picture degrade because of the conversion, or would the conversion not even work properly with progressive scan on? Thanks again.[addsig]
I live in the U.S. Is the PJ multi-input a common input jack. could I buy some kind of extension for the cable perhaps? Or should I stick with s-video, but how would the quality of the picture be using s-video rather than component progressive?[addsig]
I am probably going to be buying the VPL-HS3 in a few days, but I am a little confused with what connections I should use. It says that the projector has an s-video input jack and also that it can handle high definition. If I hook it up via s-video, am I not going to be able to use progressive scan on my 999ES? I looked at the connector for the PJ multi Input, however, it is only 5 meters. I need one that is alot longer than that. Any input? Thanks for the help. [addsig]
I don't know if the 5000 is the same, but on my 4ES you can assign the Multi-channel input to a certain input. On my receiver, I assigned the Multi-channel input to Video 1, so I don't have to change the input on CD everytime I want to listen to an SACD. [addsig]
sharper - Thanks for the websites....so for it looks as though I may go with the cables from signalcable.com. They look as though they are good quality and the reviews seem to back them up. Plus the money back guarantee helps. I really don't think I could afford some of the really expensive stuff, I was hoping to stay in the sub $80 range for 1 meter analog interconnects. [addsig]
Maxx - In order of importance of quality, I would have to say that the 6 analog and 1 coax would be the most important as I like to listen to SACD's and watch DVD's the most. I can hold off for now on the second coax for CD (or another pair of analog interconnets for that also), the subwoofer cable and the component video cable (upgrade when I figure out if I want a TV or Projector) The analog interconnects and coax cables need to be 1 meter lengths. [addsig]
Thanks for your responses....I was looking at some of the higher end Monster Cables because they are readily available in the area, but if I can find some good cables for cheaper than retail, I would be more that happy to go that route. Any suggestions for good websites where I can buy used cables from?[addsig]
