This series of slideshows, the first in an ongoing series, examines common points of confusion in the world of home theater.
This slideshow examines how volume is indicated and adjusted on modern AV receivers and amps: the zero dB system, which is totally counter-intuitive. It also explains how to update the firmware on your Blu-ray player or AV receiver to ensure the best performance and the ability to decode the latest movie releases and TV episodes.
Also explained is the one downside of modern Blu-ray players: Slow load time. This load time can be so slow, in fact, that some players convince users that the device has locked or is broken. They reload the disc or reboot the unit, beginning the process again. Obviously, confusion ensues. Fast models are recommended--as is patience if using slow entry-level models.
