Both are really good. I lean Dark Matter but enjoyed the 4-5 episodes I saw of Killjoys too. Dark Matter is really good. Between those 2 and Hunters it's safe to say Syfy is back.

I really like and recommend both shows. NF has Dark Matter available to stream. For some reason they have Killjoys as disc only. At least for now.

Sadly Hunters was canceled. I'm hoping they at least gave them enough time to wrap things up.

At least the network is trying. That other show with Tom Jane is awesome too.

Yeah, The Expanse is great. Tom Jane's haircut not so much.

"Terminus" is a more of a sci-fi thriller but I think folks here would like it because it is well done. It's available on Netflix where it is also highly rated.

"Hunters" is an Aussie production. Maybe there will be a second season there and someone else probably Netflix will pick it up. It was not your typical Syfy channel show.

Ok folks, I know there's a htpc thread here but I'd rather ask you all.

Are any of you getting surround from the browser you use? The native Windows 10 Netflix app does Dolby but I find it buggy, like if you pause for a minute and resume you get a weird screechy sound. Win10 doesn't have an Amazon app either. The browser is the one ring to rule them but no surround. Sort of useless imho unless you just play local media.

Which leads to the ps4, it's really good at all the stuff the pc is missing but controlling media with the controller gets old vs a remote.

What do you guys use or suggest? The PC is convenient and I'm good using an app called unified remote to control it. BUT taking the hit on audio is kind of a bummer.

I'll try Amazon from Windows 10 via the browser. I have both Firefox and Chrome. But I'm getting fed up with the Adobe weekly Flash updates when only Firefox uses it. These "corporate wars" are a pain.

I just use my Xbox 1 for the most part. I can use my 650 Harmony to navigate through it without the controller. I hooked my laptop up to see if I got surround with Netflix through my Marantz an it just came in stereo even though I set it as 5.1 in Windows 10. Steam games are in surround though streaming through the laptop. Haven't opened the Steam link I got yesterday. Waiting to see if it goes on sale on Prime Day.

Fired up The Invitation on Netflix, pretty good thriller if not predictable. Gets high praise in other horror circle.

Afterwards turned up Bound by Vengeance from the Netflix suggestions. Another really good movie if you like girls seeking revenge. The leading lady reminded me of JLaw and big creep reminded me of Michael Shannon.

I don't use a computer for streaming. I use a PS3 in the family room and a Roku 3 in the HT. Years ago I bought the Sony remote for the PS3. It syncs via Bluetooth. But that got lost along the way. Now my kids just use a game controller.

Watched this last night. It deserves credit for good acting and a story that certainly held my attention. I would think that most would enjoy it. I'm a little torn about whether or not I liked how everything played out though.

Roku is hard to beat. I guess I'll break down and get a harmony hub for this room so I can ditch the controller. I wish the PS4 had a remote control app like the roku does.

Yeah, you'd think Sony would be all over a remote control app for it's PS4.

Anyone here getting anything fun on Amazon Prime Day?

I would have bought a Shield but I wasn't quick enough. It says "100% Claimed" so I guess that means they only had so many units at that price.

Hello gents!

I watched a few of the suggestions here and they have been fun! I will finish up Pandemic and it reminds me of 1st person shooter video games.

As for Amazon prime day, I haven't really found anything yet that I need but I do need a new washing mitt for my cars.

I bought two other bargain priced movies on BD for $5. Kingdom of Heaven and The Day After Tomorrow. I get Return of the Living Dead tomorrow so Hump day should be fun!

Thought about an Amazon Dot or a Fire TV but a pump died on the pool so we went for that instead.

Wife and I saw The Shallows last night. Pretty solid flick guys. Definitely October list-worthy.
