Home Theater & TV Setup

by shortymuska311 / February 9, 2004 8:53 AM PST

I plan on purchasing a HDTV and home theater system within the near future. I am considering the Sony 46" KP-46WT500 for the TV and the JVC TH-M65 for the home theater. I am not very knowledgeable about the setup of the TV and home theater and would need somebody to set everything up for me. I live in Bergan County in NJ and I was wondering if anybody in that area could suggest anybody. What do most people do about the setup? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

two things you can do find a dealer who will set up your equipment correctly or find some home theater magazines and bone up, yes it is complex you have to have the rite cables and equipment to get a true home theater working at its best, I have found a store thats a customers dream come true San Jose honda electronics I just upgraded my 5.1 sound to a new denon amp and atlantic technology speakers they came over set up everything and calibrated it for me free, so you might check out a high end home theater store you may a little more but you will have a system thats awsome and own equipment that will retain its value over time example I bought a klipsh speaker system from this store 12 years ago and sold them on ebay for almost what I paid for them good luck

Sony Hook-up
by Hamish-Smith / January 4, 2009 1:42 AM PST

I have a similar question. I am trying to connect a Sony KP46WT500 TV with a Sony STRDA2400 ES Receiver and a Sony BDPS550 Blu-Ray, along with 7 speakers - 2 inwall front, one center speaker, 2 rear speakers and 2 surround speakers. Both the Receiver & the BluRay are HDMI but the TV is last generation DVI. Can I connect the BluRay to the Receiver via HDMI & then composite to the TV? Any suggestions?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
