I got mine at Panera and paid a million dollars. It covers an entire wall of my condo.

I have the Apple iWatch HDTV on a wristband. 2" diagonal. If I hold it right up to my eyeball, it's as if I'm in Sec. 420, row M.

When I'm in a meeting, people say, "He must be a busy man. He keeps looking at his watch." And then I do the commercial.

Really?

Panera sells electronics?

You know whats ironic about Panera, Condos, CVS, Starbucks and the rest of the current overpriced stores who pay inflated rents?

They replaced lots of independent stores and shops all over this city some of which used to sell televisions and other related electronics.

In theory, I use a 40" Samsung. 3yrs old. LCD with CCFL backlight. Purchased at Best Buy after gf complained about lack of reasonable television. It's a decent, reliable television.

In reality, I usually used a SiliconDust HD Homerun Prime to record games, and watch them on a side computer monitor while I'm working in the middle off the night. Generally a Dell U2311.

This year, I'll have to use league pass, as I'm moving between NYC, Kentucky, and DC.

I'm rocking a 37-inch 1080i Dell LCD that I bought around 2006 through a purchase program at my job. I don't think Dell makes TVs anymore.

I have a TV tuner on my PVR, which is networked to all the computers and TV's in my house. Unfortunately, I'm too cheap to purchase the NBA package so I can't record the games and watch them on delay. I usually tune in and watch a live stream on atdhe or someplace like that.

Does anybody know of a way to record a live stream and then watch it later?

I have a 50" 720P Samsung Plasma I bought at best buy 3 years ago for around $550.

Picture is clear as day and size wise it's just borderline obnoxious.

I'm thinking about upgrading to a 1080P at some point, but I'm in no rush as long as the current one continues to purr along.

55" Samsung 8500 LCD. Was rated as the best HDTV by cnet 2 years ago and the picture is incredible. Unfortunately, I had to replace the panel after 3 weeks of owning it (covered under warranty) and now have to replace the motherboard because it is turning off by itself (not covered under warranty). I'm finishing my basement this Fall and putting in a media room with 120" projection. That will be where I watch all my sports. Heck, I might even give up my Wizards season tickets.

42" Insignia (best buy's tv brand) plasma. Bought it in-store as there was a massive sale. I think I paid $320 for it. This was around 1 and a half years ago.

The deal was so good, I told my family and now, my mom bought 1 for her house and 1 for our Ocean City condo, my brother bought 1 and my sister bought 2.

I should be getting a cut of Best Buy's profits, damnit.

I used to do this with a program called Camtasia Studio http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia

Oh.. and for TV this season I'll be using an Optoma HD20 with an Elite Screens 106" manual pull down screen.

Just moved to a new place with a basement and finally had the room I've been waiting for to put up a screen like this.

All you have to do is take the back panel off and re-adjust the lever so it doesnt automatically switch the TV off.

My samsung did the same thing , I didnt use it for a whole year before I googled the problem and found the easy solution.

If I can do it, I guarantee anybody can .
