    the 'H' can also stand for 'Humble', albeit sometimes in a tongue in cheek way.

    Juzminator,

    Just to elaborate slightly on what Jenz said.

    LFE is the dedicated channel for LOW FREQUENCIES (BASS) This is the .1 in 5.1 as it isn't considered a full channel (range wise). It was only given a point figure otherwise it would have been 6 Channel Surround Sound.

    Just in case you didn't know that.

    Cheers
    Ace

    ...erm... the trick is to get around the rules...

    example: ...have you seen the American remake (starring Ewan McGregor) of the nifty Danish thriller Nightw@tch? ...do you have the DVD of Pr¦ck Up Your Ears starring a young Gary Oldman? ...seen any DVDs of Hitchc0ck movies lately?

    ...and so on...

    What about CTHD then?

    I bet I work it out for myself in the meantime and then feel a bit of a t*at for asking! :rolleyes:

    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

    Though I do wish people would write things in full on occasion. We don't all stare at a computer all day at work :p

    Thank you all!

    Confucious - glad to hear that somebody else isn't utterly enamoured with the whole acronym thang.

    PS - I didwork out the CTHD one about an hour after posting the question :rolleyes:
