Please help! Thanks so much in advance.

  • Hi, I have a Sony BDV-E4100 Home Theater System. Also, I have a movie in google play. How do I play it in my home theater system offline?

    Best answer: Why dont you just connect the device that has the film directly to the tv, and be happy with that. there are ways to re-record to disc media using the proper software, junction boxes and signal splitters, if not having enough HDMI inputs is your issue, but for a single movie or occasional file, why bother?

  • Sound on speakers on PC keeps cutting in and out and also volume setting doesn't work, completely out of place, is it time to buy a new set?

    Best answer: Probably, a lot depends on how much the speakers are worth to you...I mean if they are easily replaced at a moderate price then that might be the easiest way to go...If you wanted to try and fix them you might be able to do so...You would have to take the Volume mechanism apart clean it with Caig Deoxit D-5 put it... show more
    Best answer: Probably, a lot depends on how much the speakers are worth to you...I mean if they are easily replaced at a moderate price then that might be the easiest way to go...If you wanted to try and fix them you might be able to do so...You would have to take the Volume mechanism apart clean it with Caig Deoxit D-5 put it back together and maybe that would solve the problem maybe not ...So a lot depends on how much hassle your willing to go though and what the price would be to replace the speakers...I mean a bottle of Caig Deoxit will cost you about $15...and the time involved can be one or three hours depending on how difficult it is to take the speakers apart and then put them back together..Its also possable that you would need a soldering iron and some electrical solder (another expense) .If its a common problem often there will be tutorials on you tube showing how to fix it.......So buying new speakers is a lot easier but it does not mean they cannot be fixed maybe they can?

Looking for quality, not loudness. I dont want to make more than 3 purchases. Id very much prefer buying from walmart.com so i can use my discount. Im currently thinking about the Samsung HT-J5500W and the samsung HW-MS6500. Im not sure if those would even work well with each other but its a bit above my price range. I appreciate any help but i dont want to hear "walmart sucks" or "$500 is nowhere near enough" only positive help please.

    Best answer: Good luck. Your budget encompasses only the cheapest dross on the market. Perhaps you should consider shopping Salvation army stores , garage sales,such like. I have no recommendations for junk systems that might somehow magically be a match for an expensive high end TV. your best choice for that sort of money would be simply a soundbar, which at least will offer better than TV sound output. Surround sound requires five independent speakers, a self amplified sub-woofer, a disc player, several cables, a spool of connecting wire, and a receiver or better with five internal amplifiers, and a system of signal decoders, a remote... that's what, nine purchases? Simple division should tell you, what you intend to pay per item is not going to offer a quality, long lasting solution, just a chinzy make do HTiB system not worth the even minimal investment you intend. Such equipment will usually barely outlast is 90 day warranty. Don't go there.

  • Ceiling speakers in new house, what do I need to run them?

    Best answer: You will most likely need an amplifier. Depending on whether you want to plug a cable into the headphone port or not, you may also want a Bluetooth audio receiver - or one of the integrated BT-receiver-with-amplifier like David suggested.

    Best answer: Surround decoders like Dolby True and DTS Master are exclusive to HDMI connections they will not work with any other type of connection....Hence the need for HDMI inputs. The reason for that is mostly because of HDCP copy rights protection...Big name movie production companies like Sony and Paramount experienced large amounts of pirating with DVD disks and so refused to put out movies in higher quality on HD disks (Blu Ray) unless something was done about Copy rights protection first, hence all the rules governing the HDMI "handshake" frequent updates and the HDCP analog sunset rules etc .....Computers typically are not compatible with all the HDCP rules. If they were they probably would not be able to copy or burn any digital content....A few years back Sherwood offered a surround receiver that did not use HDMI connections but I'm not sure that type of receiver is still available....The drive to use HDMI exclusively is being promoted by content providers Movie production companies Game Disk Manufactures etc...and the reason why is they want better copy rights protection..Basically you want n AV receiver that has Dolby Pro logic and or Neo6 The Sherwood RD 5405 would be one to get but I'm not sure its still available anywhere...Other older model Sherwood AV receivers may also be something to get if you can find them.

    Best answer: In an apartment a sound bar sounds like a good choice....Today soundbars have improved a lot in sound quality...A company by the name of Zvox has had a lot to do with that as they started making sound bars that sounded good and other companies followed...Anyway back to the subject...Good sound bars are not cheap though...Just generally speaking the more drivers a sound bar has inside the better they sound...My recommendation would be to take a look at the Yamaha YAS 107 and or other Yamaha sound bars also Zvox SB 400 would be a good choice and other Zvox sound bars or bases...also Polk Audio has some good sound bars...So if you stick with a good brand and don't just buy the cheapest one you can get you can get satisfactory sound...Its true that with speakers like the Elac Debut series or speakers by Wharfedale and even with an entry level AV receiver by Onkyo Pioneer or Denon you will get better sound quality than probably any sound bar out there available at any price. But its also harder to manage especially if you move a lot...You have to get a TV stand that will accommodate the AV receiver often you need speaker stands to accommodate the speakers; speaker wire etc...So its a lot more hassle...and requires more boxing and effort to move.
