Ido:

In addition to turning up the sound of the centre channel, two other things you can try
a) if your receiver has Night filter (high pass filter), sometimes that makes voice easier to hear
b) turn off your four surround speakers. Sometimes the DVD author routes music to those, rather than the mains.

I don't have a surround system :D :D .


I thought so, music guys usually don't have surround sound systems :mrgreen:

but I heard you well on the night mode etc and will try those.


Keep me posted :D

I just saw a ridly scott movie with denzel W, american gangster. finally, a good soundtrack that is not full of itself and not over-volumed.


I don't remember the soundtrack, it didn't really strike me.
Again i didn't find the movie great as i was told (good, yes, but not great)
Maybe is something regarding expectations, who knows...

Man, that Florida climate sure produces wonderful produce (is this redundant?). Ido's too, in Israel. I got 3 little figs on the tree this summer. Not bad for New England. :)

how are you Terry?
I was once strolling in the Bronx in a snowy winter (don't ask why), and I saw a fig tree in somebody's backyard. that was cool!

hey Scott,
them pomegranets, how they taste? what color inside? how you deal with insects?
here, they are plauged by specific flies (get to be worms inside). the home grown version usually gets covered in paper bags to prevent this.
the kernels here are now (beginning of season) pinkish, but will soon be purple.
here being medditeranian, you get lotsa fruit stands in the streets, and in season they do pommegraneta juice, which is awsome. it's pretty powerfull too. it's like a carb clean-up.

hey Z,
thanks, I after what u said I saw there is a "dialouge" function which ups the dialogue volume as compared to background.
not fully natural, but better when relevant. didn't see on my dvd a night mode though.

Ido!

I am not sure what color they get.. this is the first year we got fruit off the trees [we have 2]. I'll keep you posted as they ripen up [have a few on the counter now - I hope we didn't pick them too soon].

dude, I didn't see from the pic, the insects here drill a real noticeable hole, curse them.
maybe open one up see if it's clean or not. keep in mind the paper bag thing.

Be warned, social philosophy OT:
Some of these new age motifs have been bugging me. motifs like think positive, talk positive, the "secret" (haven't seen the movie-book, but was told the principle), how everything has a reason etc etc etc.
why bugging me? because I do believe there is truth and merit in the basis of the ideas (otherwise I wouldn't take notice), but, the people involved can have annoying aspects (and these are often good non-stupid people).
so, I'm thinking what's bothering me is that the way (some) people apply these motif hinders the freedom of others.
why? cause when you stick to 1 dimension, not allow for complexities, and project this expectancy on others, you hinder freedom, no matter how free you think you yourself are.
kinda like our thing with hippies, no?
of course I coulda just asked Bert he woulda solved it for me eons ago in a mili-sec, fig included.

I consider 3 figs pretty good, since we started the tree just last summer from a bare stick! :) We planted a few blueberry bushes this year, and had a surprising number of the fruit later in the summer. 'Course, blueberries are native to this part of the U.S.
