I've read the reports on excess ozone being bad for you, but that's applicable to the models that really generate ozone...

This is more or less a a fan with bunch of filters (HEPA + carbon [for odours]) plus an air ionizer. It's not really an ozone generator.

Did you know that they have HD porn now?

Looking at the HD PPV channels late at night I found a bunch of adult material...one of which was presented in Dolby Digital 5.1.

Scmartje move. I won't go into why. PM me if you are nosy (I doubt you will).

Nice home entertainment setup. Everything matches, everything fits.

I think it looks fine, and I think most faceplates look like the cheap plastic that they are.

Far left (with blue glow circle thing) is an air purifier (ionizer, HEPA filter, carbon filter).

The small speaker to the right of that is the front-left speaker.

The big thing to the right of that is the subwoofer.

On top of the stand is my TV: a 42" LCD HDTV -- 1080p (1920x1080 resolution, 60 frames per second). Below that on is the front-center speaker.

On the top shelf of the TV stand on the left is my dual-HDTV tuner with 160GB HD. I use it to watch/tape TV, and then use the Firewire port to copy anything I want to keep forever onto my computer and burn it to DVD. To the right of that is my 5.1 channel audio receiver.

On the bottom shelf is the Xbox 360 + games.

To the right of the TV stand is my cable modem + wireless router.

So how well does your cable box work with fire wire, because I'd like to start pulling stuff off mine?

Works just fine. It's just a Firewire 400 port (not 800), so it can take a bit.

It takes a tiny bit of hacking as the real purpose is for D-VHS backups. If you look around for your cable box you should be able to find Windows XP firewire drivers for it, in which case the harddrive in the DVR is just viewed as an external harddrive. You copy over the MPEG2 files and reencode them into whatever you want (or leave them as MPEG2).

yes please.

I'm moving house early 2007, and planning an upgrade to a HDTV, HD recorder, and other tech gadgets, with the least possible wiring. No xbox, but I want to connect my pc and internet connection to the tv etc.

so if ionized oxygen = ozone

air ionizer = ozone generator?

so I'm guessing I'm wrong about the ionized oxygen thing - an O3 free radical is not the same thing?

Who said ionized oxygen = ozone?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_ionizer

Quote:
Ionisers should not be confused with ozone generators, even though both devices operate in a similar way. Ionisers use a electrostatically charged plate to produce positively or negatively charged gas ions that particulate matter sticks to (in an effect similar to static electricity). Ozone generators are optimised to attract an extra oxygen ion to an O2 molecule, using either a corona discharge tube or UV light. Even the best ionisers will produce a small amount of ozone, and ozone generators will produce gaseous ions of molecules other than ozone (unless fed by pure oxygen, not air).

I did, but if you read the entire thing, you can see I was far from sure of myself.

So an ionizer makes a little ozone too, but that's not its intended purpose. An acutal ozone generator makes bunches of ozone, on purpose. I get it now.
