    19 and one I guessed was the one I got wrong. However....one of the questions is wrong so do I get a point back for that? (I put in the answer that was expected but is not necessarily correct)

    Then I'm a wimp. Our church worship service runs at 95dB and I have to wear ear plugs.

    Scored 15 on the quiz.

    Gordon,
    Was that the HTPC one? None of the answers was false (then again I quite often work from the command line so easy to use for me is somewhat different to what others think.)
    Oh yeah, 18/20:D
    And the one I got wrong on the first level was the 106dB.:laugh:

    8. When processing a DVD from a film source, a progressive scan player uses:

    Bob or weave
    3:2 pulldown detection
    Interleave processing
    Dynamic scaling

    The expected answer is 3:2 pulldown. Reality is a combo of a/b and in fact not all progressive DVD players have 2:3 pulldown so the question should actually be.

    8. When processing a DVD from a film source, a progressive scan player SHOULD USE:

    Gordon.

    Well that's my thoughts anyway....

    18/20 Too.... was a bit easy wasn't it? I'm just a newbie! Maybe i spend too much time on these boards......

    Was stumped by question 7. Placing speakers, especially subwoofers, in corners:

    increases the SPL produced
    decreased the SPL produced
    improves the frequency response
    eliminates static cling

    was looking for answer 5: Annoys my neighbours in the flat above and below! :D

    Whilst I have been building the FAQ page - see sticky at the top of the CRT section I have come across many useful threads.....

    I have now added this one into the "Just for fun" section......

    AND as the Quiz is still available I have had a little go....

    I got 20/20 - but it took me a number of times ;)

    Thought I would bring this post back to the top of the pile,

    Hope you enjoy the quiz....

    PLEASE also look through the FAQ post - and if you like this quiz then there are a few other items in the "just for fun section you might also enjoy.....

    Good fun, and thanks for digging it up.

    I have a reputation to live down to, so I'm relieved I got 19/20 at the first attempt, using a calculator, but without looking anything up.

    The one I got "wrong" was about the 100W amp. I think their answer is wrong, so I reckon all those that think they got 20/20 - didn't!

    I do wonder why PAL progressive would need 3:2 pull-down :)
