    Default I dumped VHS finally!

    So I finally dumped VHS and went Blu. Now, im thinking of upgrading and getting a receiver that supports both Coaxil and RCA. That should really up my quality. Thoughts?

    You upgraded all the way up from VHS to Blu-ray, without even stopping at laserdisc or standard DVD along the way? Yow! That's one serious jump; the difference in quality must be profound. Congrats!

    You may want to upgrade to a TV that supports S-Video before looking into upgrading that receiver. You don't want to jump in too fast.

    doh, i think i might be selling all my Blue-rey stuff. Our Hollywood is having an amazing sale on VHS. I could really add alot to my collection instead of picking up just 1 Blue-rey title

    I thought everyone knew that the only technology that was taken from Roswell was the Microprocessor......

    Or is that what this "V-H-S" is? Some sort of super advanced computer chip thing?
