Called the cable company. They were very friendly and sent a firmware update to the box. Audio issue is fixed, all components hooked up, Thompson happy.

Re: Question About HD TV

Got an HDMI cable... now I'm getting patchy audio on HD channels and periodic bleeps on SD channels. :evil:

I tried all of the HDMI inputs on the Bravia, but no luck. I'm going to exchange the cable tomorrow. Wish me luck... :cry:

Re: Question About HD TV

Nevermind again... apparently, I am using horizontal stretch now and it's stretching the HD signal as if it were SD.

Would getting HDMI work? I'm using component right now... I didn't know if the HDMI sends extra data or what.

Ok, there apparently is an option to auto-fit the SD signal... just took some playing around. Stupid Sony home menu...

Question About HD TV

So I just got HD TV set up. I had previously set the SD signal to stretch to the screen. If I have it set up like that and go to an HD channel though - it stretches off the screen. My question is if I can somehow have it set up so when I go to an SD channel, the TV will automatically scale the video...

Re: 21st Century Breakdown

As for my personal choices from the new album, I recommend Before The Lobotomy , Last Night on Earth , Murder City , and Restless Heart Syndrome . It definitely feels, to me at least, like this album is NOT fan-service to the Hot Topic kids who, after the release of the last album, became super fan...

Re: 21st Century Breakdown

It's an incredibly ambitious album; there's no doubt in my mind it might be their most ambitious. I like it over American Idiot already, but I don't know how to stack it up to their catalog of work since this album feels less like Green Day than the last one did. I do believe I prefer the more "coll...

Check Out My New Album

In keeping with my goal for 2009, I have released the first of three planned albums. It's available from Amazon tomorrow (5/19)! Check it out here! Lyrics and album details are available here.

Thanks to everyone who checked out the free EP earlier this year again!

Re: Check Out My New EP :)

This is unrelated to the EP, but the first "single" from my upcoming album is now streamable in full on last.fm: http://www.last.fm/music/Steve+Thompson ... ?autostart

As always, feedback is appreciated. I don't expect it to be everyone's cup o' tea.

Anyone Here Good With Remixing?

I'm looking for anyone who may be interested in remixing one of the tracks of my upcoming album.

It's a very electronic album thus far, so I think the style lends itself well to remixes.

I know this may not be the best place for such things, but I figured I'd check anyway. :)

Wow! That's a pretty damn big television. Mine's only 42" (which would be about 1/12th the size of yours, apparently) :)

Re: Anybody see Watchmen yet?

Overall, I enjoyed it. The character development was pretty good and the acting, for the most part, felt decent. It seemed pretty long though and some of the effects (IE Nixon's makeup) felt comical.

Re: the wii...

In my opinion (maybe it's just me growing older), the gaming industry is generally just in a bad state right now. I know there's a lot of high profile releases (Little Big Planet, GTAIV, Metal Gear Solid 4, etc.), but I simply cannot find myself interested in any of them. Super Mario Galaxy, until r...

Agreed. This is one of those games that's fun to just pick up and play.

Re: Should I keep or sell Pikmin 2?

This game is really rare? That's a shame. It's better than the first one, in my opinion.

Dude, I'd keep it unless you absolutely hated the game or plan on rebuying it on Wii.

Joaquin Phoenix: Crazy? or Genius?

Personally, I'm not sure if the actor quitting acting and going into hip hop is legit or just an elaborate stunt. However, if his behavior on Letterman wasn't staged, I certainly hope he gets to a better place soon. Read more here: http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/tv...
