  18. Ok i live in Manchester, UK Sky Festival is on this weekend fri-sun........ Sony have a tent there where there demostrating thier products was talking to this guy about the PS3 and its cappibillities........ Gran Turismo 5 was a talkng point and he was telling me that the PSP will be able to connect to the PS3 (thought that already) but in such a way that in games the PSP can be used as a screen as well as your monitor......... basically he was talking about in Gran Turismo 5.. it will have the a capibillity to use the PSP as a windscreen mirror when playing the game thus meaning placing the PSP on top of your monitor hey presto windscreen mirror not only that but if for some reason u had 3 PSP then u can use one as windscreen mirror and two as side mirrors..... He sounded like he knew what he was talking about What you guys think..... DannyBoy
  19. Well let me start by.. Im thinking of buying a projector and obviously the pull down part...... 1. Whats are the pull downs called.... 2. Can you just project it onto the wall instead of the pull down........ What i was really wondering is how far back away from the pull down would the projector have to be mounted..... to get a picture... basically i have seen a 66" pull down.... and was wondering would my room be bigger enough for the projector to use all 66" inches............ i room measuers...... 105" X 109" Thanks guys hope you undrstand..... DannyBoy
  20. Ok i have found a product from netgear........ http://www.netgear.com/Products/Entertainment/DigitalMusicPlayers/MP101.aspx would i just attach the ethernet cable to the pc and to the media player...... then will it be like scrolling through my HDD's on the tv screen....... or will it scan for my media files then show em by album, artist...... I would prefer scrolling through my HDD's content because i have a HDD purely for my music only so i have it nicely organised..... DannyBoy
  21. At the moment i currently have my computer in my room.... but my sister has moved out now and i am moving into her room because it is slightyly bigger but the layout of this room means to have a double bed, wardrobe and pc.... just wont fit...... Although i like having my pc in my room it just wont fit so its going to have to stay where it is..... the problem i have is that i love my music and i like listening to music when im getting ready or going to bed or when im waking up........ now obviously theres HIFI's but that means puttin all my music on to disc dont wanna do that...... I do have an ipod and have thought about the docking stations for ipod's but i dont like the idea of searching throught my ipod for the perfect song...... What i have thought of tho is 1. Maybe a cheap laptop but even a cheap laptop is still quite pricey...... and they normally dont come with good sound cards....... 2. Having my TV in my new room somehow display the same picture as the computer and having a bluetooth wireless mouse and keyboard..... but then with that how would i select to use the speakers in my room instead of the speakers in the computer room...... What do you guys think........ is there any other ways round this........ Thank You DannyBoy

  23. Yea i must admit having the full lyrics to Tupac Shakur.... Changes would be really good because the lyrics are great they really are...... but one would u think it would right..... I wouldnt have even thought of this song i am really considering...... DannyBoy
  24. Wow Thanks for alll these suggestions keep em coming.... I must say tho i am only really looking for A LYRIC for example one or two lines MOST i dont want a big wall full of lyrics just maybe a line or two, to make the room more of place to be instead of just boring chocolate and sand(cream) DannyBoy
