  1. my experience is similar to essence, ABB have FAR better service than telstra. my 250/20 is great, i get about 270/22 speeds wish i moved away from telstra earlier
  2. hi, i was thinking , maybe around $1000 as a starting point. i've seen some second hand units, but i didnt want to go older than 1-4 years my sony amp is in the Tv room (75" sony) and we use that system every day
  3. The Yamaha A880 seems good value at the right price is the Yamaha A1080 much of a difference? , the A2080 seems great, but I dont think the extra power is worth the extra cost for me the online adjusting seems convenient for the Yamaha amps
  4. Hi guys, thanks for the information and suggestions. i have ordered a simple hdmi splitter, no point going too expensive or the splitter costs more than the amp. Scottr, thanks for the offer, I will have a think about it, possibly wanted a bit newer. downstairs I just run an nvidia shield to the projector, I also have a Sony DVP S700 DVD player, but I haven’t used it for a long time. So I just need an easy to use setup for the family. I’ve had a console also, but normally the one upstairs on the tv gets used
  5. i have a movie room with 5.1 speakers, and jvc x3 projector, i presently have Yamaha rx -v1900B amp mostly use it with movies via the nvidia shield and plex, netflix, prime ,etc I like the movie room, but we do tend to use the sony 75" (with 5.1 speakers and Sony STR DN 1080 amp-the amp and tv seem to work together well) i am having issues with the hdmi out on the amp, and i was thinking of getting another home theatre amp to replace the yamaha. what units would people suggest that are similar. I guess i will go new or 1-2 years old. Yamaha RX-V6
  6. i contacted a local repairer but he thought it would be about $300-400 to fix..... i was thinking of trying a hdmi splitter (1 in, two out) so i can run the nvidia shield to the amp, and connect it direct to the projector at the same time. any suggestions for a good unit to try ? https://www.amazon.com.au/HDMI-Splitter-Out-Aluminum-Supports/dp/B07YZFHCLR/ref=sr_1_11?dchild=1&keywords=hdmi+splitter&qid=1594734292&sr=8-11
  7. I have a Yamaha RX-V1900 in my movie room that recently seems to have stopped putting video via hdmi ( I connected my nvidia shield direct to the JVC x3 projector and it works , but not when via the amp. I have two long hdmi cables run to my projector, and one isn’t working , but the spare cable does ( when going direct to the projector ) so I looks like video output from amp, plus one hdmi cable aren’t working. any suggestions for a receiver repairer in perth? if I was to update to a newer receiver any suggestions ? I have a Sony DN 1080 in the tv room. Both
  8. ive had good speeds with telstra hfc in the past close to the 100/40 max when it switched to NBn, we still got pretty much the same speeds but ive been getting more annoyed with telstra having terrible service whenever there is a problem, which luckily isnt often. ABB is looking tempting
  9. with the recent faster 250/20 and 1000/50 plans being available for some addresses who here has upgraded plans ?
  10. We had a hikvision system installed, the wiring was tricky for them as we have a larger 2 story house, but as long as you choose an installer who's been around for a long time you should be ok. Its amazing how clear the video is for night and daytime, we have turrets for most areas, and bullets where we wanted coverage of a bigger area. Having storage of the video on a hik nvr is great, and having audio is great. The hik connect mobile app is great, and you can zoom in on footage as well. Wireless cameras just arent anywhere close to wired camera systems
  11. ive had this issue, i contacted sony, they suggested i uninstall the netflix app, and then reinstall it i have tried that, so far its helping
  12. Hi i have been getting noises popping from my Sony amp, when I use my tv to play netflix..... what happened with Sony ?
