    Whats the best Home Theatre System, anyone that may have installed
    them in the past, used them, etc.?

    Also, any particular Home Automation Systems you prefer, not too
    difficult to learn, not the most expensive, but still good.

    Thanks

    Rory

    Don't worry - you still get to read the arrogance of Jack-Ass-Bass in
    those groups.

    My God! If your familys saftey is a concern...DO NOT USE THIS GROUP FOR
    ADVISE OR GIVE OUT ANY INFORMATION. If you deal with someone from this
    newsgroup you better keep one eye
    open while your sleep at night! this is the worse place to look for info
    for your home security. This group is a hive of activity to get your
    confidence then rip your off. Get "help" from here and next think your
    house is
    cleaned out and inexplicably your alarm didnt work......or worse.....
    Be very very careful using this group.
    Be sure to closely investigate (primarily if you
    buy online) any of the online alarm seller, especially if they claim a ASA
    certification, a totally false and misleading certification (see that
    later). You wouldn't want to buy from someone whose sideline is
    understanding your alarm system for the purpose of exploiting it later
    byknowing your codes or maintenance access numbers. Be wary of those who do
    not have a brick and mortar store.

    When I was shopping and using this newsgroup some online dealers advertised
    a ASA certification with a picture of a ASA emblem shown on their website.
    It gives a good first impression but when you look into it you find out that
    it was nothing more then some....guy.... creating a website to supposedly
    post complaints, with no entries of complaints or follow-through. It was
    analogous to someone flashing a police badge that turns out to be fake. The
    ASA moniker is a badge without any accreditation and surely this is
    misleading and a scam.

    Some of the free advice you get is not because of someone's unselfish need
    to make the world a better place to live. Most are giving you advice on the
    hope of getting a sale or...."other" information. Listen but don't act on
    the advice until you can confirm or gain some trust in the source by
    researching them.

    Sometimes you can learn a lot about sellers by plugging in email address or
    screenname into a Google search of past news postings. You will be
    surprised, .....no..MAKE THAT SHOCKED....AND I MEAN SHOCKED!!!!..... at what
    you find out about those offering to outfit your alarm. How can our legal
    system let these type of people sell home security!!!!!

    This is a very unregulated online business, and especially risky for
    something as important as YOUR HOME security.

    good luck....and go talk to someone reputible.
