      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.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.
