We had a saying back when I worked in the golf business: "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach." For a while, I felt like I was getting into the rut of teaching and not doing. While my Custom Installer column strives to help you get the most out of your system, I allowed technology to pass my system by.

What's the Next Big Thing in high definition? 3D? 4K? 5G? Nah. Several industry experts who've seen prototype displays suggest that high dynamic range will be the newest technology to turbo-charge video. We're talking video with pitch blacks and blinding whites.

Prototype Sony Blu-ray player

Originally, a big selling point for Blu-ray was that it would arrive as a complete system - that is, the first units would both record and play high-definition DVDs. Nervous Hollywood studios seem to have put the kibosh on that, at least for the moment, as no such combo devices were announced as standalone models.

So I've been basking in the sounds of Cake's new chart-topping album Showroom of Compassion (Upbeat Records; cakemusic.com), and have to say that I'm really loving it.
Oh good. That would be horrible if it was a nightmare for you. [chuckles]

You're all set to record a pay-per-view movie through the digital set-top box your cable provider installed just hours ago. But when you program it to record, your DVD recorder flashes a cryptic message indicating that the show can't be copied. Must be the usual screw-up by the cable company, you reason. No big deal: you'll just watch it live and call service in the morning.

Here's a predictable plot: A world-famous director buys a mansion in the Hollywood Hills and immediately demands that his underlings bring forth a traditional screening room - an opulent show-place, sealed off from the rest of the house, complete with a hulking projector, Voice of the Theater-type speakers, leather recliners on shag-covered risers, red velvet curtains, and a touchscreen rem
