Some words about 5100
a) Watched Warehouse 13 last night, ep 1 - the pilot -- on Netflix ---- > Superb HD picture and a amazing 5.1 surround, just fantastic!
15 min later :
b) Watched Olympus Has Fallen on Amazon. Of course, I rented the HD which was advertised with 5.1 sound
->> a big disappointment!!
The video -- was this gritty unsharp picture really HD ??
The sound - it was 2 ch stereo, ouch, the film was almost ruined by that flat sound!
Quote DVDtalk.com on Olympus Has Fallen : "Where the visuals fall, the 5-channel DTS-HD Master Audio track swoops in to the rescue with aggressive,
nimble action-flick effects that amply exercise the home-theater threshold. "
That was what I expected to at least get some feeling of, but not from my amazon rental last night :-(
Hardwired to router, amazon reported 6.9 mbps
I have a 70 mbps internet line
This is FYI, but if any has any suggestion how I could improve my amazon "experience" - please do.
(I have already ordered a asus 66 router and a Zyxel switch with qos, hoping this will improve some, my old netgear 3500 ver 1.0 is due for retirement anyway )
