The mail order brides may be refreshing, I don't buy anything online anyway..... yes I can do research though.

Yesterday a site had a popup box asking me to turn off my ad blocker so I can view their sponsors ads.

Ads here on AVS? There's an option to turn-off the AVS Forum side-bar.

Additionally, I have ABP to bring back some sanity in Web browsing.

That's Tuff TV, an outdoor/sporting network aimed towards men. It's appearance was mentioned the other day on "the other forum".

It looks like the picture on 41.7 is slightly zoomed in, but the aspect ratio appears to be correct for the channel. The PSIP is still not registering on my Samsung HDTV.

Newer is not always better.

I picked up 41.7 and didn't even try too but there is no signal.

Yeah I guess they had the jump over there, they also mentioned the PISP (or lack of) ... I'll have to put it in the Samsung... 27.7 then?

HDR = High Dynamic Range. There are two versions. HDR-10 and HDR-DV (Dolby Vision). Basically, it puts out more color hues and peak brightness is higher than normal. So far, 'DV' is better than '10', of which both are on the 2016 P-Series from Vizio. Sony is HDR-10. I think at the moment, Vizio and LG are the only ones that do DV.

The TVs or Displays that have Full-Array Backlighting (not Edge-Lit) are the ones that do HDR much better.

Since my brother's 2015 75" Sony is HDR-10, my Vizio P50-C1's HDR-DV will out-do his TV.

HDR is still new, and later TV's and Displays down the road with better back-lighting will have you reaching for your sunglasses or welder goggles.

Another acronym to add to the confusion. I thought there were billions of hues already present and the only thing was to get the TV to process and present phosphorescent colors. I still want my 21 x 9.

Really I find it bright enough....

Speaking of which I just upgraded my R30 75W CFL's in the kitchen last night to 75W LED's, as it was somewhat dimmer with the CFL's I may have to consider putting the dimmer back in there... now I'm blinded.

BTW, don't get the Vizio, get the Sony like you deserve.

Another question: Curved screen, is that a cutesy-pa thing or does it have merit?
