This unmoderated newsgroup will be used for the discussion of Home Cinema in Australia. Home-Cinema includes all, but not limited to, equipment such as Laser Disc, Compact Disc, Video Compact Disc, Video Cassette Recorders, Dolby Digital, Dolby Prologic, Digital Theater Systems (DTS), speakers, subwoofers, forsale, movies, projectors, power amps, pre-amps, processors, decoders, remote controls, TVs, screens, viewing rooms, seating, lighting, popcorn, etc. DVD players should be discussed in aus.dvd. Therefore crossposting between aus.dvd and aus.hi-fi and this proposed group is discouraged. Some discussion of Home-Cinema software will take place, however if it is DVD specific, it should be discussed on aus.dvd. The newsgroup should be specific to Australians however it will be global, so foreign posts are allowed if they are relevant to Australians. There is a global home-cinema group, alt.home-theater.misc. This is dominated by posts originating from the U.S. and has little relevance to Australia. This group is not intended as an advertising medium for Products. However, as brand names may be required to be used for product identication or recommendation, it is important that any applicable copyrights on brand name usage be taken into consideration. All comments expressed in articles posted to this newsgroup will remain the responsibility of the sender and in no way reflect the opinions of the proponent.
The above graph is a moving average of the number of articles posted into aus.audio-visual.home-cinema per day. The top of the green area counts the number of articles posted in the last 24 hours, whereas the blue line counts the number of articles posted in the last 2 hours, times 12.
