Karaszero,

It's a fitness organization, catering to kids from 4-17.  Right now we are teaching tennis in the parks and will be branching out to schools, churches and communities in ATL and surrounding areas.  J.A.M for Kids, jumping, athletics in motion seeks to encourage kids to get back into a fitness program by providing a jam session with exercise, making it lots of fun while educating about health and fitness. Our SET tennis program is our premier joint, providing tennis lessons, at a low to no-cost for underprivileged youths. Thats it in a nutshell!


Right now trying to get the schools involved as well as the churches. If you got a hook-up, let me know.

Miz

THE ATL is on FIRE! ;D

Hey guys whatever happened to Jenn with the searing tongue???
I had been wondering about that. She was nice with the Photoshopping. Hope she returns soon, I was really glad that her and Toya came here as Storm fans and stuck around to become regular HEFFAs (Hudlin Entertainment Forum Female Afficionados). ;D

Goat can you post some pics of some hometheaters you have done. I get the magazine custom home theater, some of the set ups are off the chain. I don't have enough room for a dedicated hometheater so what are some directions to go with? If you don't mind free advice ;)

Man that Atlanta one was real nice. It got bachelor pad written all over it. Do you do wiring and hardwair installs to. I am haning picture drop out on my over the air high definition set top box that is pluged into my stereo receiver. The funny thing is is that the picture will bling out whenever a high pitched or low tone noise like an explosion or something on the show im watching. I only have two high definition inputs on my tv so I need to use my stereo receiver for video switiching. Im afraid that perhaps my receiver can't handle the inputs that I have in them. Perfect excuse to get a new receiver. :). On av forums a guy said that I might have too many components plugged into the same surge protector. I would really have to change my set up to work around this as their is only one wall outlet where my set up is located.

Hey Blu, lots of possible causes for the loss of audio. One of which could very well be your surge protector. For high-end equip a Power Conditioner rather then a simple protector is a better option. But it could also be the polarity of you sub-woofer, your Receiver's output is damaged or it just can't handle the load or a number of other reasons. But I don't want to hijack this thread with a bunch of AV stuff. Shoot me an email or use the toll free number on the web site if you would like me to offer some suggestions.

p.s. I've been a member of AVS forums for  quite a while. I never really post there though. I do read up on what is discussed sometimes.

p.s.s. I deleted the other post as irrelevant to this thread. pm me if you need the web addy again..

Peace.
