Scott says that AVS broke the news this week of a possible title for Star Wars Episode VIII: Forces of Destiny. The news came from European Union copyright and trademark filings that were discovered by fan watchdogs.

Leo says that when he hooked up more than one Onkyo and Denon AV receiver device to his Plasma TV, it stopped working. But when he bypassed it, it worked again. Could it be a bad cable? Scott says swapping out the cable is a good first step. Scott says that Onkyo has a history of HDMI issues, but the Denon one is intriguing.

Mike B writes that he has two Pioneer Kuro Plasma TVs and he's looking for a third. Should he buy a used one since they are no longer made? What is comparable? Scott says that OLED is as good as Plasma, but in a different way. The Panasonic VT60 or ZT60 are good options.
