I APOLOGISE IF THIS HAS BEEN POSTED IN THE WRONG AREA OF YOUR SITE.

Firstly id like to say thanks for all your great uploads and video reviews. I have been watching your reviews for the last 2 years and have found them to be the most informative on youtube. It has made the whole product selection that little bit easier.

It is very unfortunate about the small group of people that you find posting inappropriate comments on youtube. I think people may have forgotten the main reason for using the internet in the first place... INFORMATION. Keep doing what your doing and ignore these people.

I understand that you must get many messages and hard to reply to all of them but I would be most grateful if you could offer some advice.

Been building gaming machines for a few years now and have never been focussed on the sound side of things too much.

I have recently purchased a Sony str-dh520 av receiver and a pioneer 5.1 speaker package.

Im running 2 Asus gts 450 in sli.
Asus M4N82 Deluxe motherboard

Now my question is how would i connect my pc to the av receiver ?

I want to get the best possible 5.1 surround sound experience, the av receiver has features like
Dolby True - HD, Pro logic IIz and dts HD Enhanced Audio.

Do i need to now buy an expensive hd 5.1 sound card?

Thanks so much for your time

James

If I were you I'd start doing written reviews on the website, that way users and fans have a reason to come to this website, most of us don't bother to visit a website filled with youtube videos.. I think that should be separate.. Whenever I need to look for benchmarks I rely on websites, and I think most of us use google for getting Benchmarks, kind of hard to skim through videos to see the results..

I think if you did that it would drive a lot more traffic to your website.. It would be more work, but I think you'll achieve the traffic your looking for without upsetting your visitors and fans..

Rodney did you remove the comment option for your older videos on YouTube as well? :O

If it's worth doing , it's worth over-doing it :)

On some of the newer ones, but it would take a long time for me to go through all of them, but eventually will.

Rodney I gotta say I used to have a lot of respect for you but I don't think I do anymore. I mainly feel this way because well to put it simply you're lying. If this was truly about cutting down on silly comments then allowing people to just come comment over here will not cut down on "silly comments" they will just end up over here. Which leads me to my second point I have no problem with you trying to get more publicity to your site and generate more revenue etc. as it helps keep your series going. But lying to people and saying that you're moving all commenting to here just to cut down on "silly comments" is frankly a lie. I would rather you just outright say that you're moving comments here so you can make a bit more revenue and gain some more publicity, I can respect that. I haven't been a subscriber/viewer/supporter of yours since the beginning as some others have but I like to think that I was here for a decent amount of time. But I think that ends here I just don't like or enjoy the way this whole thing has changed over the last few years.

Having said that I still view you as an awesome guy, and I don't mean to be rude this is just how I feel. Maybe if things change I might come back but I don't expect them to and I can respect that someone sticking to their opinions/views. Keep on reviewing.

Maybe you are not aware, but I can't outright tell people to come with my site and click on my banners, it's against Google policy. I've hinted to it in the past and I've been contacted. SO I follow Google policies as strictly as possible.

Fact is, no matter what I do or say, there will always be a few who don't like it, so I just do what I see fit ;)

BTW: Thanks for taking the time to post :)

You can't respond to youtube comments if you don't allow them in the first place. No one else can respond to questions either.

Censorship is just a turn off to anyone watching your videos. You've succeeded in killing your youtube "community". People will watch the video and then turn the video off, there's no encouragement to get "involved". It's more of a discouragement than anything. Leave the comments and let people talk amongst themselves if you want more attention.

It's up to you. It's just my opinion that you're limiting yourself.

FACT: YouTube comments are enabled on this video bud and I've enabled YouTube comments in more new videos. Some videos I've decided not to enable them since they are only Video Review announcements.

Are you not a Youtube partner, Rodney? You seem as if you couldn't care less about pursuing a Youtube career. Partners get paid for every view, for every comment, for advertisements. Probably more profitable than this website as well since Youtube is your direct window of incoming traffic.

Well I don't understand your motives for these decisions :|

You don't understand because you're not in my shoes nor do you know how YouTube income works. If my videos got zillions of hits than YouTube would be semi-profitable, otherwise it's not. So unless I turn into a 20 year old gorgeous blond doing her nails and talking smack... j/k ;)

Rodney, though you are already a vampire, please do not become a cross-dresser. We do not want 3dGameWoman
