  1. Randy, thanks! Yes; been "shopping" for DVR/CCTV drives. Just no clue if there is a max size for this cable box Haha, ordered a 2TB external Fantom eSata drive ... just prefer to go the "internal" route to avoid extra boxes.
  2. Edgar, Thanks! had done some searching on this and found Acronis and AOMEI do not support Linux cloning. Guess I will try replacing it first and if that doesn't work I will try the Eassos cloning
  3. Hoping you "experts" can give me some guidance. Five days and probably 10 hours on the phone with my Cable provider - Spectrum, Tampa, FL - and OF COURSE no info. All they want to do is sell (OK; lease) additional equipment. Have a Cisco 8742HDC cable box which has a 500GB, 5900rpm Western Digital Green Power hard drive, model WD5000AVDS. Would like to replace it with a 1 or 2TB disk (not sure if there is a MAX size also not sure if I can switch to a 7200rpm one). It seems (haha ) that you can just replace it and the hardware in the box will automatically format the drive and write some other software to it. Some form of Linux OS, so I don't even know how to clone a disk. Since I have several of these boxes I would prefer to just replace the internal drive versus adding an external one - yes; and another box Appreciate any input. As a reward for reading this, here are some tips ... 1. Multiple DVR's (at least this model) can be connected over your home network. DVR-1 can access DVR-2 and vice-versa (and I assume more units) and play ALL recordings! Nice whole house setup. Haha; Spectrum Cable said it "could not be done." 2. I bought some of these DVR's from "offerup" and all you need is a "CableCard" from your provider. In my case $2/mo versus $15+ for the box. Just tell them it is for a "Tivo." Thanks all, Emile
  4. Not answering your question, but ... I have the KPT-904's with the 510 horns (same driver). My xover (in the 904's) is setup for the horns, so no problem and no need for bi-amping. But ... the 904/942's came in many different varieties ... check out the xover first. You can always bi-amp and/or DSP later. (Your horns need very little power, but the bass bins love big watts.) Used to drive them with a 52 wpc Marantz 2252B and the sound was great ... upgraded to a Crown K1 (400?? wpc) and it was a major improvement! I do have a 15" subwoofer, but hardly ever use it. And, think your garage setup (door!) would introduce more sound problems than improvements with a sub. Love your system. Good luck! Cheers, Emile
  5. Concur with many of the selections here But, want to add Carlos Santana and Brian May ... maybe not the "best," but their sound is always distinguishable.
  6. Think I had KP-301's but not really sure But, I would take any PRO speakers over the regular series ... they just sound better/fuller/more refined/etc. For some more info, see Oops ... that is "your" post from 2 years ago. Guess you did not buy them back then
  7. Yeah ... all dimensions are "off" ... mid-horn does not "fit" ... makes me wonder if the woofer(s) are just front mounted ... nice build though
  8. Sorry ... not checking in too much Road trip FL to IL to visit my wife's mother for a couple of weeks
  9. Haha; room enough Used to have CW's besides a fireplace on a 12ft wall ... replaced them with KPT-904's
  10. Haha ... no; been working on my "honey do list." Three new computers, new plantation shutters, new front door ... bigger job than anticipated; 4 ft wide door replaces a "small door" plus side light. Cheers, Emile
  11. Another vote for CF-3's (or the slightly larger CF-4's Probably my favorite Klipsch speakers, excluding large Pro speakers.
  12. Yes; old postings and pics remain on file ... when you reach your limit (2MB?) it will not allow you to upload any more ... have to delete old content
  13. Very decent price ... bought mine for $350, but that was 2 years ago. If the seller is including the stands it is a bargain
  14. Oil at MINUS $32?? So; when will gas stations start to pay "US" when we fill up?
  15. Free, but I'm sure they require a Fidelity account
