Given the wife's blessing to buy a big screen for our new home, I'm laden with the burden of selecting a TV that will meet our family's needs until we move again (unlikely). That said, what's a good future-proof 1080p TV, and where can I compare models for myself? [more inside]

Does anyone remember an older (80s) live action TV about a group of people with super powers? I have a terribly, terribly, terribly vague recollection of it. I seem to recall one guy could shrink and one could freeze things. I also seem to recall them all wearing the same jumpsuit. It may, honestly, have only been a TV special but I recall a short series that I may have made up on my own.
My Samsung DLP HDTV is giving me major grief. I was having minor convergence issues on the cable component and then yesterday I came home and there is huge blue streaking on all the components! It looks as if the blue projection has been bent across the top and bottom of the screen. [more inside]

My husband's two favorite cartoons, Teen Titans and Justice League, are not returning next season...what can he replace them with? Adult humor, dark themes, superheroes all good. He likes The Tick, but watches Cowboy Bebop on fast forward just for the action scenes.

My friend is looking for clips of different types of TV shows where people do things in order to become famous. The funnier and more outlandish the show, the better. What TV shows can you think of?
I'm desperate here. I need to see an episode, any episode, of the old children's TV show called Vegetable Soup. A basket full of carrots and cauliflower to anyone who knows where to find video of this show, either on disc or online. Preferably online. Does anyone else remember this show? It was on in the mid-70's. I've looked on YouTube and other such sources, but there must be something I'm missing.

There was a show on HBO that came on AFTER Arliss that I remember loving. I've been trying to figure out what this show was by searching the internet and asking around to see if anyone else remembers it. I remember it was a comedy, but I don't remember the name or anything about it! [more inside]

I set up my big screen and I think I did a good job. Only there's a lot of artifacting on the regular TV channels (not the HDTV). That may be as good as it's going to get with my DirectTV box but I'm not sure. Can you recommend a good guy at a reasonable price in LA to come take a look at it?
Has anyone had any experience with the Sling Box? [more inside]

My setup came with the R15 DVR that Direct TV makes. I want to get my DVR'd programs onto my ipod so I can watch them at the gym. Let me know what I have to do. Do I need to trade it for a standard Direct TV reciever and get a Tivo with Tivo to Go? Will that work with direct TV? Is there some sort of program that will work with my system and my XP laptop? Or is there something you can do to mod the R15? Is there a guy who hacks the boxes and lets you use the seemingly dead USB outputs? AND, if none of that works...should I ditch the ipod and get one of those PVP's that records videos and just set that up on TOP of my DVR? Or do they not work with satellite? I know, this is a lot. But any help would be appreciated.

I just bought a new graphics card. The only thing I need it to do is to output my computer display to a television. To this effect, the card has three output options: (1) RCA, (2) S-video, (3) HD (red, blue and green cord). The first two options work great. The third, which is the one I'm really jonesing for, doesn't. What appears on the TV through the HD-out is all wonky and strange -- I can sort of make out stuff, but just barely. Any ideas as to how to get this up and running? I'm on XP (Home Edition), and here is the TV I'm using.

Turns out my dream of mounting my soon to be bought LCD TV into the wall is a no go, as the wall is directly over my fireplace and apparently THAT will cause damage to the cables. So I'm looking for the tallest thinnest credenza possible to mount it on. I'd build it myself, but a history of collapsed childhood treehouses seems to argue against that. Any ideas?
