Of course, one need not have a formal holiday to be thankful. I'm sure you have plenty to be thankful for, anyway. Enjoy! Over here Thanksgiving tends to get lost between Halloween and Christmas. That's unfortunate, too.

I agree, very undesirable still works ok but when it hits a certain freq it makes a pop sound. Need to do more tests.

Hi Frank, that's a shame one of your speakers is messed up. Is there a repair place near by. Can you tell which driver is the culprit?

The Alien Anthology rocks. They did a great job on 'em.

Been in a movie kick the last two days. Watched Raiders of the Lost Ark with the fam, then the new UK remastered Terminator after they went to bed. Last night after I recovered from my turkey coma I put in Prometheus. Just stellar AQ/PQ.

That's awesome, Franin. I love the Potter movies. I didn't realize the last two were out in the Ultimate Collection.

P.S. I see you blew up one of your speakers. Sorry to hear that. Why not just have it fixed instead of buying all new speakers?

So the Turkey was good? Hope you and your family had a good thanksgiving. What did you think of raiders of the lost Ark? Yep the final potter films are finally out smile.gif

Regarding the speakers seems fine right now will be doing more testing. The audio gremlins are coming out again.

The turkey was out of sight, my friend. A good day all around. I thought Raiders looked and sounded amazing. They did a great job on it. Have you watched the final Potters Ultimate yet? Ah yes, those audio gremlins will drive you nuts and turn your hair gray.

I agree with the audio gremlins, it annoys me. Hasn't done it at all, god knows what it was but will keep an ear out for it. Will watch Potter next year when I do the round again.

I had that happen once. A different HDMI was all it took. They can go bad sometimes. Be sure the new one is well-made.

Agreed. It's just accepted somehow that HDMI cables never go bad and that's not the case. I've seen the difference with my own eyes between cheap cables and well made cables. Not saying people have to break the bank for a cable but it always amazes me that people will spend untold thousands of dollars on their equipment and then refuse to purchase appropriately designed and built cables. Not saying that's you Frank (far from it) just in general. Glad you found the problem though!

Ya gotta love the HDMI protocol. From handshake issues to audio gremlins. What a gem.
