Looking for any messageboards on Home Theater/HDTV components etc.  I know about AVS forum but that place is a f'n wasteland.  it's got way too much activity, bickering, flaming etc.  some people are knowledgeable, most aren't.  the threads are way too long and unstructured (who needs a specific TV's owners thread with 4000 replies??).  it's just kinda silly.  any other suggestions out there?  thanks.

I have used hdtvoice.com with some success...

scervin:
While I agree there is a bunch of total crap on avs, there is a ton of info.  There are also some that know a lot, you just need to find them.

What are you looking for?

dmonterisi:
well, the main question i'm interested in right now is whether to stick with my sony ns90v upconverting dvd player or go with another upconverting dvd player, or just go with a high-end non-upconverting player (and thus allowing the pioneer to do the scaling).  I'm not going to go with the Oppo upconverting player if i do go with a different upconverting player, because of the possibility of macroblocking with the Faroudja chipset (in the 971 model).  I may go with a non upconverting Arcam dvd player or some other high-end player.  I've read (on avsforum) of people having very nice results with such a set up, but haven't seen any specific input on an arcam/pio combo.  i may have to do a better search...
