I agree with Steven.  Home security companies are largely dependent on the fear and paranoia of consumers.  And they know how to tap into that fear, with marketing messages centered around “protecting your family”.…

D. Cohen and Robert Archer. Post a survey on here for Onkyo specific HDMI issues for dealers. Ill bet you a crappy Cedia Convention Center lunch its over 90%. NAD same rate different probs. Same old same though, Reps and Industry…

Elan G is pure excellence.  The Palin’s are separatist hillbillies (Sorry if I insulted hillbillies)  Please do not tie the best automation platform to the worst human being on earth. Great project by the way. …
