Since we're totally willing to take out a wall to install Panasonic's 152-inch behemoth in our own home, we're probably the wrong ones to ask this question -- which where you, dear reader, come in. Our friend Michael is ready to buy a new HDTV and is asking how big is big enough / too big: \"I'

It's that time of year, and sometimes a card and \"Thanks for being there, Dad\" just isn't going to cut it. It's high time the old man had an HDTV upgrade, and we're going to make sure Amir gives him a worthy one: \"Hey Engadget HD It's almost Father's Day and some of the best TVs are on sale. I ne

We checked the calendar and it seems to be about time we revisited one of our favorite questions -- projector or HDTV? Both have their strengths, and since we posed the question in '08, LCDs and plasmas have only gotten bigger and cheaper, while it seems there's 1080p projector currently available

Keeping with our recent theme of more frugal home theater efforts, this week our question is similar to the pie in the sky dreams of a few weeks ago, but with a very down to earth monetary restriction. Our friend Thomas has space for a home theater setup, but not a lot of cash to use to fill it up.

Recently we've gone decidedly high end with our queries, but now we've got a question that returns to the opposite end of the home theater spectrum. Our friend Jason wants to upgrade to surround sound without spending too much cash, so think about passable HTIB (home theater in a box) systems while

Sure, getting a nice HDTV and slapping together a custom audio system can make a living room into a decent entertainment setup -- but what's the best way to go all-in on a dedicated theater room? That's the question posed by Ken: \"I just moved into a new house, and finally have a room with space

We've always preferred our program guides up on the screen where our eyes already were, but having a list to skim over without squeezing the action into a corner or hiding it behind text is too appealing for some to give up. So what do you do if you're like Jorge stuck using a remote rendered usele

One of the downsides to digital video is the audio has a tendency to get out of sync. We see it on broadcast TV as well as Blu-ray Discs, the issue is literally everywhere. Many AV receivers have a audio delay feature, and even some Blu-ray players, but which is the best and exactly how do you ca

In the yeeeeear two thousand... and ten, are we seriously still restricted to the demands of physical connections to get our HD fix? While wires have gotten it done for most of us so far, there's more than a few looking to make the jump to wireless HDMI solutions but unsure how to take the first st

Just a few weeks ago, we considered combo NAS / media streaming set-top boxes, but what about those like our friend Matthew, looking for a HTPC that can function by itself as a NAS server without the extra hardware cluttering one's entertainment space? It's all too easy to have a \"too many boxes un

There aren't many around that're bigger fans of free over-the-air HD than us, but we're also really big fans of wireless technologies. So when we originally heard that the FCC was considering commandeering broadcast DTV spectrum for wireless broadband we weren't so keen on the idea. But then we saw
