      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

An HDTV question

Recommended Posts

I really can't believe I'm even asking this... but...

The wife, yes the wife, watching QVC, YES QVC, has decided we, yes WE need a new flat screen TV!!!

The special of the day or whatever was a 46" Sharp Aquos.

My question is not going to be what TV is the best, that'll be determined with our own taste and research.

What I'm wondering is, is there any way to hook up the surround sound wirelessly?? If so, how about the satellite dish?? Where the wife, and I, would like to hang it, is on a "fake" wall that separates the kitchen / dining room area from the living room in the upstairs of a 70's style Wausau split house.

It's a wall that goes up about 10' in an area with a vaulted ceiling of about 12'. Also, there's no part of the wall that touches an outside wall.

The basement is completely finished off with sheetrock / tongue and groove on the ceiling.

I know of the easiest, most likely way to run the satellite cable, but are there other options?

Thanks.

Is there any unfinished area in the basement? You would be suprised as to what and experienced residential electrician could fish in to that area. If it is within 20 feet of an open area in the basement it would be a piece of cake to fish in.

I just reread your post, built in the '70's, probably solid floor joists huh? Makes it harder, but not impossible.

There are systems that come with wireless remote speakers.

Yeah, solid joists.

The closest room that's doesn't have a finished ceiling is the utility room, and that's about 15' from where this wall that we're wanting to hang the TV on, is.

It's about another 30' of wire to run from the satellite dish, so we're getting up to around 100' or so if we run it this way.

I think the best thing, would be to run the satellite wire where it comes in, in the basement, along the wall, then up and along the backside of the ductwork (no one will see it there) and then just drill a hole straight up below the fridge and run the wire through the backside of the wall.

I can then get the wire to the sound, and then run the wires back through the wall and up the the TV and back in behind it there, all behind the fridge.

If you have carpet, you could run it under the carpet along the baseboard.

Nope, laminate wood.

Just put it in last year.

I suppose I COULD pull up the part in the living room, and then run the wire, and relay it, but that's going to be a hassle in itself, even though all the wires would be run in the floor.

There is a way of running wires without exposing anything, it's called "Wall Fishing". It's not something I'd reccomend but if done correctly, it will look wonderful. I've done quite a few wall fish myself, being a former cable installer, I would be able to give you a few pointers or even assist you in the project.

If you have laminate wood, it should not be too difficult versus sheet rock.

      My dad fell thru Camp Lake just north of Shakopee last weekend.  Went from 6" to less then 1.5" in an area that typically never has issues.  Lots of abnormal freezing this year, there were still open pockets Sunday afternoon.   Haven't seen it freeze like this in years (at least on our lake.)  Don't go alone on lakes you're not familiar with.  Bring a spud.

      Any info on Mayhew Lake just NE of St. Cloud? Just moved to the area and was looking to get out a small lake.

      Now is the time to talk to kids about the dangers of thin ice. As temperatures continue to dip below freezing, ice is forming on many lakes, ponds and rivers. But conditions vary across the state.  Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Hannah Mishler has already responded to multiple ice rescue calls. “Ice, especially snow covered ice, is extremely deceptive. You can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” Mishler said. With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward the newly formed ice for entertainment. “Teach your children that ice is never 100 percent safe,” cautions Mishler. “If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” While adults and children are recreating outdoors, they should always take precautions around any body of water during the cold water season. Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator, advises in addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). When a child is near the ice, an adult should be near the child. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
