The on-screen image looks crisp and sharp, like a huge moving photo- graph. You feel entranced. More to the point, you feel the immediate urge to own this video projector, provided it works with the DVD player and the rest of your fledgling home theater gear. An enthusiastic salesperson sees your look and enters the demonstration room. “It’s really beautiful,” the salesperson proclaims. “That’s the first DLP unit that works in true 1080p at 16:9. Yup, she’s a dream.” Moments like that make you wish that people came with a pause button — or at least an instant replay and color commentary. For all the fun they bring and the good times they facilitate, home theaters (and their sundry technologies) come with a bewildering blizzard of terms and acronyms. Worse yet, it seems like everybody involved with the industry either knows what the terms mean but can’t explain them or has no clue about the true meanings but spouts the terms anyway. And neither of those cases helps you make any sense of the whole thing. That’s where the new and greatly improved 2nd edition of Home Theater For Dummies makes its heroic entrance. (We’d cue up a low fog, some dramatic lighting, and that mysterious “something cool might happen anytime now” music to enhance the moment, but there’s only so much you can do in a book.) Even without the special effects, this book still rescues you from all kinds of home theater perils. Read on to find out how.
