I also noted an improvement in my Bell (Dish hardware) satellite picture using HDMI input 1 on the 103 projected onto a basic 100" screen via a BenQ 1070. The Bell box is set to 1080i and the 103 is set to output 1080p.

Perplexed! Could use an assist....

I purchased LCD Soundsystem's Blu-Ray "Shut up and Play the Hits" and have an issue I cannot figure out. It is recorded in DTS-HD Master, of which I have several discs in the same format, but the center channel is COMPLETELY silent during the concert. When the band is talking backstage, dialogue comes out the center as it should. As soon as the concert starts, complete silence on the center channel. I have checked and replaced the HDMI connections and cables, ran "pink noise" through all channels to confirm they are working, tested things out with my other DTS Mastered discs, the signal input showing from my Marantz processor (complete system below) shows all channel active. I even thought I had gotten a defective disc from Amazon so ordered a replacement. Same thing is happening. This Blu-Ray has literally hundreds of great reviews on Amazon and not one says anything about zero sound coming from the center channel. I would greatly appreciate any input or suggestion cuz I am CONFOUNDED!

Did a couple quick google searches...blu-ray.com doesn't mention the specific absense of center channel, but does say the music comes from the 'front channels'. Then found another forum where several users confirmed this is simply how the disc was mastered. It appears to be intentional.

Thank you for doing the homework on my issue. I couldn't find anything other that the "front channel" quote you found. That is disappointing that is the way it is mixed but oh well.

^ The center channel usually is primarily for dialog, but I have seen plenty of discs put more than that in it.
It just all depends on who mixed the sound.
If the original sound was recorded and mastered in 2-channel, then that is what they have ported over onto the disc.
If they were to remix it so that content was in the center channel, it would be an unnatural mix, but could still sound good if done right.
You could do the same thing in your processor though by turning on one of the DSPs like "theater" or "Concert Hall" or similar.
That might get you some center channel content.

I have seen some recent posts regarding Windows streaming and Norton Internet Security. I just thought I would share what I had to do to get it working on Windows 8.1. I have no problems with SMB shares now, and I don't have to enter a password.

You need to add three firewall rules in Norton. You also need to perform an extra step for password-free connection. I have attached my notes as an image because I couldn't figure out how to make a table work in the forum software.

Thanks for the feedback. Placed the order and it should be here on Sat. With an Avs game on Sat and the big game on Sunday, I should be able to test it out. (Although seeing what could be yet another curb-stomping of the Broncos in the SB on the big screen might not be all that satisfying....)
