Time for the HT Guys to look into our crystal ball and try and predict the HDTV and Home Theater landscape for 2019. Our crystal ball isn’t as clear as a good HDTV but we faithfully give it another shot nonetheless.
 
Wow. Another year in the books. And another year of stellar prediction results! With that it's time to see how we did with our 2018 predictions. If you’re feeling nostalgic, the predictions are from Episode 825.

Each year we design a Home Theater setup that is considerably better than a typical home theater in a box. We have seen complete setups for less than $500 from manufacturers like Sony and Panasonic that quite frankly do not sound good. While our system costs more than a name brand HTIB your satisfaction will be dramatically more. Plus we includ ...…

Each year at this time of year we do a show where we discuss what we are thankful for. There are the obvious things to be thankful for like our families, especially our wives who put up with our home theater obsessions. And of course we are thankful for you, the listener/reader of our show. So as is tradition over the last many Thanksgivings, o ...…
 
The older we get, the more things seem to sneak up on us, even though we know we should be expecting them. It happened again; Black Friday is already here. Just like all the years we’ve talked about it, there are some exceptional deals to be had. The question is where to you put your focus. If you’re going to wait in line somewhere, where is th ...…
 
We recently read a news story about a TV streaming service from SilconDust, makers of the HDHomerun a device that allows you to take your over the air TV signal and broadcast it over your network to mobile devices as well as set top boxes like the AppleTV.
 
To find out which shows were the most popular this year so far, Nielsen estimated the average number of US viewers tuning in to regularly scheduled programming. ABC's massive success with "Roseanne," along with CBS' high ratings across numerous shows on this list, demonstrates how broadcast networks remain the heavyweights in overall viewership ...…
 
Ara was called away for an emergency. Everything is A-OK, but it was one of those things that just had to be handled immediately. In the mean time, we have a brief micro-cast announcing our latest giveaway. Details can be found at: www.htguys.com/soundbar
 
We received an email from Santosh in the Bay Area of California asking if we could recommend a receiver for a modest home theater system to go in his medium sized family room. We thought, "no problem! We know the exact receiver to recommend." However, like everyone, he did have some requirements; the biggest one being that it could not exceed $ ...…
 
Sound & Vision author John Sciacca has spent the past 20 years in the custom installation industry, and has worked with at least a thousand clients during that time. A regular part of his job is consulting with clients on the design and installation of media rooms and home theaters. Sometimes the project is a new build (the best). Other times i ...…
 
Large TVs are becoming increasingly popular, with manufacturers releasing more models in the 70-75-77" range. The 2017 models in these sizes are becoming cheaper while the 2018 ones are now the flagships of each manufacturer. Rtings.com tested 33 TVs available in a 70-75-77" size and provided their recommendations for the best ones to buy in 2018.…
 
This year’s batch of Fall TV Premieres snuck up on us a bit. Here we are, the last show in September, and just now getting to the new shows coming out. In fact, this prior week may have been the biggest week for new and returning show premieres of the season. If you missed something that looks great, the good news is that you can probably find ...…
 
TWICE has announced the winners of their annual Best of Show awards at CEDIA Expo. The products were nominated by the manufacturers and a team of judges was employed to walk the floor and rate the products on a number of criteria, including its value, impact, and how unique it was to the market.
 
The 2018 edition of CEDIA Expo is now history. CEDIA is one of the two big annual trade-only shows covering AV gear. CES, held each January in Las Vegas, is the big Kahuna. Apart from every electronic gadget on the planet (and some not so electronic) the main event at CES is the launch of all the new Ultra HD TVs for the coming year (not to men ...…
 
The idea behind Konnected is pretty great: It works as a bridge to connect your traditional wired alarm system to your smart / home automation system. We have a good friend, Rod, of prior Blu-ray Review fame for those who remember them, who has used Konnected. We were able to get him to join Ara to share his experience with it on the podcast.…
 
The HT Guys have officially joined the ranks of the cord cutters with Braden opting to cancel his Cable TV service entirely. We have been working on trimming the cord for a while, but this is cold turkey… Was cold turnkey. Braden quickly found something lacking and turned to fuboTV to fill that missing hole in his home theater.…
 
Everything new is still the same old thing. Netflix is the new HBO, SlingTV is the new Comcast; we aren't creating anything new, we're just recreating the same old paradigms. Are consumers really benefitting from the shift from traditional cable and satellite to streaming? Perhaps its too soon to tell.…
 
Another very special episode, keeping the streak alive while on vacation, we take the opportunity to share some behind the scenes moments leading up to the formation of the HT Guys and the HDTV and Home Theater Podcast, specifically the Sony Pictures / ADSG years.
 
We had a listener ask for a recommendation on a 75 inch HDTV in his price range. In true HT Guys fashion, we got a bit too involved in the research and comparisons and had to put a show together all about it. There's also some info on DIY Automation and OLED vs QLED TVs.
 
"This solves the conundrum that lies at the heart of modern technology, threading its way from your phone to your dishwasher to your air conditioner: “Currently you need to be smart to use a smartphone,” ...At this stage AI is just the tip of the iceberg of what’s going to happen in the future, When we talk about AI many people think of voice a ...…
 
Last month we read a news story about the bid by Samsung to replace projectors in movie theaters. Now Digital Trends has an article that provides a few more details about this technology. Our hope is that it can find it's way into our living rooms in the not too distant future.
 
It’s been quite a while since we’ve talked about turning the low frequency effects from your movies and tv shows into physical movement you can feel in your furniture. We reviewed a system many years ago and loved it, but it was pricey at the time and neither of us ended up installing it. Turns out Amazon has some options that make it affordabl ...…
 
Whether you're outfitting a small space for an occasional movie night, upgrading your living-room home-entertainment system, or building a dedicated home theater, Engadget has a projector recommendation for you.
 
fuboTV (fubo.tv), the leading sports-first live streaming TV service in the U.S., has launched 4K HDR10 support in Beta, becoming the first virtual multichannel video programming distributor (vMVPD) to offer content in ultra-high definition and high dynamic range.
 
We have a few topics to cover, some arising from emails from listeners, some ripped straight from the headlines, and a couple from articles we've enjoyed and wanted to share. All of this culminating with a discussion on how HDR could potentially impact the expected lifespan of an OLED TV.
 
This week's episode is a very special one: The HT Guys go on vaction. With limited time to plan and record, and no access to email or news stories, the guys still work hard to bring a short show together. Braden shares a story about bridging the past and the present and Ara recalls a very special moment for him from his time at Sony Pictures/AD ...…
 
HT Guys Senior Correspondent Rod Williams found himself at the E3 show and had some great insights and stories to share with the HT Guys audience.

If you’re getting dizzy watching shows that were canceled a while ago, make a revival on a different network, only to have that network cancel some shows that were also quite popular, causing them to move to yet another network, or a number one rated comeback show that was practically guaranteed another season get abruptly canceled for crazy tw ...…
 
HDR stands for high dynamic range. Theoretically, the technology can provide a higher level of contrast between light and dark images on the screen to create a much more realistic image. We say theoretically because some of the first titles coming out of Hollywood have been somewhat underwhelming. Just like going to HD, Hollywood will get bette ...…
 
While this may or may not be the year of home automation (or maybe it was last year?), the idea of making some aspects of your home more automated or “smarter” is becoming much more approachable and affordable. CNET recently put together a collection of articles about how to get into the game that offer some interesting tips and pointers. This ...…
 
Today we have a review of a Sony A8F OLED TV from RTINGS.com. The A8F is a OLED 4K HDR TV with 4K HDR Processor X1™ Extreme, Acoustic Surface™ technology and Android TV. The Acoustic Surface is supposed to produce deeper bass by vibrating the glass. We’ll see if that is what the reviewers experienced below. It comes in three sizes 55”, 65”, and ...…
 
Disney Research teamed with MIT to build a bizarre virtual-reality "force jacket" that can simulate physical sensations. Including creepy ones. Combine that with the Royole Moon, a virtual 800-inch curved movie screen (about 66 feet) you can strap to your head and home theater just got a lot weirder.…
 
We asked our listeners - who are also OLED owners - to give us their own direct experience with OLED, especially related to burn-in. We got some great feedback. Maybe it'll change your mind on buying an OLED. Or maybe not.
 
Walking through a large electronics store the other day something caught our eye on one of their OLED display televisions. While you’d like to hope it was the vivid, realistic images on screen, it wasn’t. It was the obvious burn-in. And it was bad. You could clearly see a shadow of the bottom logo bar / ticker from content they must use regular ...…
 
Channel Master has introduced a new indoor antenna that gives the Mohu Leaf a run for the money. The Channel Master SMARTenna+ is a mostly paper thin amplified antenna that can easily be placed inside your home and pulls in quite a few channels.

On Episode 836 we talked about the idea of short throw projectors for home theater use and asked the question: Why aren’t more people using them in their homes? Their price per square inch of screen real estate seems like, at least on paper, the most cost effective way to get a huge screen at home. So why aren’t they flying off the shelves? We ...…

There was a short throw projector on Woot! this week for $999. Not a bad price at all for the potential to have a 100” television in your family room or home theater. That got us thinking… Why aren’t more people using short throw projectors in their homes? Their price per square inch of screen real estate is by far the most cost effective way t ...…
 
Interview with Adam Pizzo. He is a home integrator specializing in Control4. Adam is based in Toronto and was kind enough to come on the show and talk about what a home integrator can do for your home.
 
Research firm iQor recently commissioned an online survey called the Customer and Product Experience (CPX) 360 Survey (part 2). It was conducted online and polled 1,004 U.S. adults 18 and up living in a “smart household” environment from Nov. 9 to Nov. 17, 2017. The goal was to gauge customer experience and customer service expectations of buye ...…
 
For many home automation is limited to lights turning on and off at prescribed times. Others would like the ability to control their lights while they are away from home. For these people full blown automation is not necessary. There are a growing number of products that will let you do this. They range from smart wall plugs to wifi connected l ...…
 
If you haven’t already invested in one of the many smart home speakers on the market, this summer you’ll have even more options, as Facebook plans to unveil its own version of voice-enabled smart home speakers, called Fiona and Aloha.

Most are probably well aware that Apple released it's smart speaker, the HomePod ($349), last week. As you would imagine you can’t click a link without somehow landing on a page that has a review. Well we’re adding our two cents to the discussion. But we’ll try to be succinct.
 
Disney's Netflix competitor, a streaming service for movies from Disney properties like Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars, will arrive in late 2019.
