Btw how is Craig going ? Don't see him much on AVS.

To be honest, I really don't know what direction I am going to go in. EVERY tv has people who rave about it and then other people say it's the worst TV ever. I mean, every single brand. So I don't know what to do. Like I said, I will wait for CEDIA and maybe CES. I just don't want to get burned.

Craig is doing fine. It's just that he is really really swamped at work so it's hard for him to have any down time for AVS. But he has been helping me and educating me about video stuff.

I just want to pick a good reliable TV. That's all. I want one, now that I know that I can get one, but I want to be careful and pick something that is really good in my budget. Don't worry Frank, I will keep on posting here how everything is going.
P.S I hope your system is still kicking butt .

One thing I am not sure if I mentioned or not is that I have upgraded to Jriver MC20. I did this because they had a sale and there were a few movies coming out with Atmos, and some that are out now that I was curious about. I bought John Wick. I have read that it was a pretty good movie and that it sounded good as well. So, I did the rip with my latest version of MakeMKV. After figuring out which of the 50 files was the right one, I did the rip. I noticed in the audio section of MKV it said Atmos and TRUHD. After the rip I just played back a quick section to make sure it worked. Since I don't have an Atmos setup, it defaulted to TRUHD, which is the right thing to do . Before, I was just getting a high rez version of Dolby Digital. But now, I can buy any Atmos disk I want and rip that track. It's pretty neat. I have yet to watch it yet though. I plan on re ripping TF4 as well. It's pretty cool now to be able to start to have an Atmos library. If I ever upgrade to a full 4k Atmos setup(with a server) at least I will have my audio all ready to go.
P.S Still learning from Craig and on my own about video.
