I am certainly not upset at the drive and software cost of UHD playback on PC. Frankly, it is about what I expected. I do, however, think PlayReady 3.0 requirements are obscene and driven by the...

I think the challenge and potential windfall of reverse engineering AACS 2.0 is most likely enough incentive for James and Co.

Definitely won't miss the curve, but I do kinda like 3D. I don't watch it terribly much, but it is a fun experience when I am in the mood to dawn the glasses.

I have had issues with reboots on both my 75X940C and 65X930C. I am not sure it is actually the PS4 Pro causing the issue as I have had issues on and off with both TVs and random reboots. Can't say...

The Engadget article says the upper two models will support HDR10. That would imply 10-bit WCG.

Frankly, I have much trepidation surrounding these new models. Roku is just vague enough about...

I suspect it won't be much different. The grain is attributed to the film stock used. Unless they DNR it all to hell it will be most likely be very similar.

Has Pioneer released the HDMI 2.0a firmware for the SC-95? While HDMI 2.0 should have zero issue with 10-bit color, it could be a handshake problem from the 2.0a -> 2.0 -> 2.0a chain.
