The PLV-Z5 gets pretty good review from Audioholics. Coming it at under $2,000, the specs are 1100 ANSI lumens, 10,000:1 contrast ratio, 720p […]

Sharp SD-SP10 HTIB

There is a lot of strong opinions about HTIB. Most people around these parts would highly recommend against them. As with everything in life, I find most things have a purpose.

Vista DRM Cracked?

I am always skeptical of DRM cracked claims until verfied more then a few times. Given all the fluff about Vista DRM over the last few weeks, its interesting to see it get another shot in the ole family jewels. The hack in question bypasses the PMP, which is designed to degrade the quality of playback without the proper hardware.

How to Fix Commercial Skip within Vista
