HDTV and Home Theater Podcast - Podcast #502: Optoma Neo-i DV20A Projector Review

You've heard us talk about projectors with built-in DVD players before, typically in conjunction with a feature on backyard or outdoor theater. But who uses DVDs anymore? OK, bad joke, but to be fair, more and more people are storing movies and videos right on their smart phones, portable media players and tablets. If that's you, and your phone happens to be an iPhone, or you happen to use an iPod, Optoma has built the Neo-i DV20A projector just for you.

HDTV and Home Theater Podcast - Podcast #501: TV Reliability

By The HT Guys • Oct 21 2011, 5:48am

We recently read and discussed an article by the HD Guru about disposable TVs (Vizio Disposable HDTV Sellers: Do They Have Your Back?) and thought it might be a good idea to discuss TV reliability. Armed with this information you can decide whether its worth paying a bit more for a TV that will last longer than some of the cheaper 'Disposable' brands. This information comes from Consumer reports. They surveyed 209,000 readers between 2007 and 2011 to determine Brand Reliability.

HDTV and Home Theater Podcast - Podcast #499: ZyXEL 500 Mbps Powerline Ethernet Adapter

By The HT Guys • Oct 7 2011, 6:44am

It seems like every new home theater device wants a network or an Internet connection these days. Your TV wants to be connected, your Blu-ray player, even some receivers want to be online. Not to mention dedicated media players and gaming devices. If you don't have a hard wired connection to your theater gear, you can usually try WiFi, but even good connections can be unreliable at times. That's where a good Powerline adapter can make all the difference.
