    That's really cool! I could probably spend hours looking at the art and fun stuff you guys have. I should go to museums - I like looking at fun artsy stuff.


    I got a mini nerdgasm reading that. Sounds so cool.

    I received my replacement phone today. Right off the bat, I can tell the display has that reddish hue... almost as bad as that first replacement device. I checked the born-on date and this one was made on 11/23/11. As I thought, right around the same time as my original and all the others. Not sure if Samsung has production runs but it appears this one was crap. :mad: I took a screenshot of the two screens but interestingly enough, nothing happens when I plug the USB cable into the new phone. I'm using the cable that came with it. It will charge when I plug the cable into the charger, so the port isn't bad. Moved it to another computer, same thing. The original phone mounts fine when I plug it in, so it's not the cable.

    Needless to say, Verizon is about to get a phone call from me.

    What do the Nexus gods require of me? Blood sacrifice? My dog? Swearing off beer for a week?

    I've got to tell you, this was cool. I've had $300 remotes before, but this is the best. I literally just hooked it to my PC, entered my Man / Model and it set up activities for me and configured my remotes. It is stupid simple. Somehow, it knows whether the device is on or not (or sends commands that the native remote cannot like if your on, do this, if your not on, turn on then do this). I think this remote may be smarter than my phone. I am really impressed so far. I'll report back as I use it more. Now to my homework.;);)

    WOW - New Guides! :D

    Congratulations BabyBlues and Pupkact!

    The day is coming soon when everyone here will either be red, green or gold :)


    WOO HOO!

    EDIT: I had to send our Harmony One remote back. It's great for basic tasks and I highly recommend it for the casual user. But with a 3D system, there's just too much that it cannot do; ergo we were always using the other remotes anyway.

    Glad it works out for you, though :)

    Agreed -- they know how delicious beer is. They wouldn't wish that upon anyone.

    Glad you liked it. I messed up, his visor is in 3 parts, the middle part is a grill. I'll try to post a bit more of the stuff around the house, from time to time. :)

    So far so good, I can get to all settings so far. I don't mind having to grab the native remote once in a while, but we were at the point where we needed three for almost any change. Blue-Ray is 3D but the TV isn't. Plus I'm not big into 3D. HD is for sports, surround sound is for movies. I have yet to see it differently (although watching Top Gun in HD with dolby 5.1 was way cool:D).

    I actually only watched it upscaled through the blueray, but holy cow did it look better. And the 5.1 is really cool for movies. I have watched a bunch of mid eighties movies on Netflix that come through in HD, it's pretty cool seeing movies from back then as they were seen in the theater.

    Morning everyone. Dumb question, how do I disable email notifications for threads I've subscribed to? They fill my inbox like no tomorrow.
