3/25    Does using the s-video and RCA jacks (for audio) to connect
        a DVD player to my tv make a big difference over using the low-
        quality connector that comes with the DVD player?
        \_ There is a visible difference between connectors, but unless
           yer really picky you probably won't notice. If you have the
           connectors, get the cable and you'll just know you're viewing
           the best of what your equipment can do. S-Video and Component
           seperate the color channels. RCA video and Coax combine them
           into one signal, so there is blurring.
        \_ there are several possible video inputs on a TV:
        \_ what low-quality connector are you referring?  Using TV audio
           ruins the movie.  To fully take advantage of DVD capabilities,
           you should setup a 5.1 audio system.  As for video, s-video
           is sufficient.  Your eyes won't be able to tell the difference
           unless you put the TVs side by side.
           \_ I think the original poster meant "low-quality cable".
        \_ there are several possible VIDEO inputs on a TV:
                S-Video, Composite video (three rca type of cables),
                a single RCA video cable and RF/Cable TV.  Composite video
                is best, then S-Video, then a single RCA video cable.
                \_ WRONG! Quality, lowest to highest:
                      rca cables JUST FOR THE VIDEO)
                        Coax cable (standard cable)
                        RCA cables (yellow, red, white)
                        Component video.
                   The above poster said composite instead of component.
                   Composite is worst, component best.
                   \_ I worded Composite wrong.  I meant component (three
                      rca style cables JUST FOR THE VIDEO)

3/7     Does anyone else think the iPad3 isn't really that much better
        than the iPad2?  I don't really understand the hype.
        \_ 5MP camera?  My 1-yr-old Android phone has a 8MP auto-focus camera
           (plus a 1MP focus-free one on the front.)
              \_ The iPad camera seems like a joke to me.  The iPad is just
                 to big to be useful for taking pictures.  Maybe it makes

6/8     Bought a new Sony Bravia from Costco. I can connect to it using
        DVI->HDMI converter at up to 1024x768. Above that resolution,
        Sony TV says "Unsupported Signal..." even though the manual
        clearly says it can support 1280x1024, 1900x1080, etc etc.
        What's up with that?
        \_ Your DVI source *MUST BE* HDCP compliant. Old DVI devices are not.

4/10    Why do people (myself included) like watching movies or TV series, or
        reading novels?  Why are humans so fascinated about stories that they
        consciously know are not real?  Do other animals exhibit such behavior?
           \_ That is FUCKING AMAZING
              \_ It is amazing.  I think it's partially trained behavior, but
