I guess he managed to squeeze his AVS buddies in when he isn't too busy with his gig as Kylo Ren.

It looks like they are doing a catch-up mini marathon starting Monday morning. Series set to record.

I've been slacking off updating my Plex server lately. I just dumped some stuff on there earlier today like the last two episodes of Ash vs Evil Dead, and The Mummy's Hand and Dr. Cyclops from Svengoolie. I have a few more sitting in my process folder but I need to clean them up before adding them to the server. Maybe I'll get to them tomorrow.

Here's the schedule in the HDHomeRun DVR add-on for Kodi. I think it's going to be a pretty good DVR when it's finished.

Hey dudes and dudettes are the fancy UHD physical media players out. I'm browsing Best Buy and see UHD4k Upscale but that's not the real 4k stuff right?

Is that the first to market? Not as expensive as I was thinking. I expect the last gen stuff to drop in price a little.

Yeah that isn't bad but I need the Sony (or other brands) Pjs to come down a bit. $6k is the cheapest 4K pj. Speaking of BD players you guys remember seeing $1100 first gen BD players?! Made the $600 PS3 a bargain BD player.

Panasonic announced one at CES but they didn't say when. I'm not sure if anyone else has said anything yet. That Samsung is supposed to go up to the regular price of $500 after the pre-order is over.

I remembered I turn 40 this month and caught the new gear bug. If I were smart I'd upgrade the AVR to get some of that 4k 3D passthrough HDMI business, then a player and TV. I'd be satisfied with a new AVR and a dedicated 3d player vs the PS4. My gaming days are done I feel. The PS4 has been off since August. I get more use out of the handhelds (Vita 3DS).

Still not terrible but my early adopting days are few. I'm getting satisfied with less for longer as I near the death days of 40. A few TV shows a week, a movie if I'm lucky, and some recliner time with a book when I'm not at work are like good "me" days.

Exactly, and that is why I pass on getting a PSVR when it comes out. My PS4 is a BD/Netflix box 99% of the time.

IIRC there are some Atmos enabled receivers that are decently priced. Although for $300 more than I paid for my denon 4311 the new 4200w has the processing power I need to last quite a while. But until the 4K pj price comes down I am on hold for avr. But if a 80" 4K (certified 4K) reaches the lower price before a Pj, I might mount that bad boy and call it a day!

Heck it's your 40th get something you really want!

My only upgrade so far has been an XBox One,and likewise,mostly used for Netflix and Vudu,OTOH,my son uses it for his gaming and the game streaming to the pc is awesome.So far Id have to say this was money well spent.Now id like to go from the Yamaha to a Marantz AVR,but the Yamaha has yet to fail so I cant justify the replacement.

New AVR and a new mattress are probably in the cards.

Yeah I love my 4311 and it is a tank! I am glad MS made the Xbone a decent console. My son is a little young for my games so he plays mainly on his iPad. I thought about getting those retro Sega Genesis or Atari at Target for $40 and it has 80 games!

If the stupid PS4 had a real remote instead of that bluetooth one it makes a nice streaming unit for sure, but going from controller to the Harmony gets old fast. Xbone has its appeal for sure but the kid would figure out that voice activation and probably fry it yelling "XBOX POOP" all the time.

I tell ya, the mattress is becoming a point of conflict in the house. Wife has 30 pillows, a foam mat on top of the pillow top and I feel like I'm drowning in it tossing and turning. She is constantly talking about her back hurting but I'm not allowed (by executive order) to suggest maybe it's too soft. I really want to try one of those adjustable ones let her side be soft and mine like concrete.
