Ordered this from Amazon yesterday, should hopefully be a visual treat in 4K?:

@Wookii Yeah, Planet Earth 2 on Blu-Ray looked incredible in the parts that were filmed with Arri and Red cameras. There is some go-pro footage used throughout in certain parts that is a bit grainy and bad looking, as well as some lower quality cameras used to capture very rare animals in remote locations through motion-activation that looked very grainy and soft, but for the most part the series looks fantastic and is a joy to watch on the big screen.

One thing to keep in mind, though. Planet Earth 2 on bluray ran at 50fps natively as I recall, so if this is also true for the UHD version one would need a display with a HDMI input capable of this kind of bandwidth in order to get the best picture.

When I tried upscaling the bluray to 4k with the UB900 into my LS10000 as I do with all my blurays, the player reported outputting 4k at 4:2:0 8 bit. I ended up just watching it with 1080p output and internal e-shift scaling in the projector instead. Perhaps I need to check out of if the player can convert to 24p next time I watch it, so that it can output the usual 4k at 4:2:2 12bit?

thanks for the heads up. I imported the BD from the UK but will double dip to see this in HDR/WCG, especially the Islands which was one of my favorites of the new series.


it looks like these folks got an early look at it, they did mention 24frames for the UHD version.

Why Planet Earth 2 is this year's must-buy 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

http://www.trustedreviews.com/opinio...blu-ray-review

It looks great on the standard Blu-ray (bundled with the UHD discs), but it’s only when you switch to 4K and HDR that you can see how striking it is. The same goes for insects with slightly pearlescent wings, or the iridescent feathers of a hummingbird. Without seeing the level of colour available on the 4K Blu-ray, the beauty on offer is essentially watered down.

HTPC fans - Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080Ti is released

Nvidia is on a roll - this is the first major Ti update to use newer silicon and provide nice sized improvements over it's base product.

I took a quick shot at the pre-order lottery and won, these are going for insane $$ on ebay.





testing the first card for stability then adding the 2nd in later this week. looking forward to checking out MadVR with this beast.

Titan performance for 1/2 the price.. What a wonderful day for HTPC/Gaming fans!

I plan on waiting for the next gen cards before I upgrade from my SLI GTX 980s. The cost of a single 1080Ti is a little rich my my taste. An 1180 for around $500 sounds good to me.
