Hi all,

I'm looking at getting a PS4 and generally very annoyed that it has zero support for harmony remotes, or any remotes for that matter. I plan on replacing my PS3 with the PS4 and my use...

In a similar vein, does anyone know if any of the updates have allowed the PS4 to work with Harmony (or any for that matter) remotes?

I spoke with a CS rep at sony who says it works with the PS3...

That's good to hear because my prior dct and dcx Dvr boxes don't do scaling well, but the dcx did native pass through.

So it would be your recommendation to set output at 1080p and let the box do...

I'd read that initially (even aside from the lack of 3D), the PS3 was a superior Blu-ray player than the PS4. With the recent firmware update, up to and including 2.01, how are people feeling now...

I don't even care so much about SD channels as rarely if ever watch them. I'm more interested in letting my TV handle upscaling from 720p and 1080i signals, rather than having my cable box (which...

X1 Native Resolution

I understand the current STB that comcast provides with the X1 platform do not allow native passthrough, ie you need to select a resolution. I would rather have my TV do that work. Does anyone know...

I have an ST50 and I've noticed that on 4:3 content it automatically stretches the content to fill the 16:9. And when I set the display to...

Can you explain a little further why VUDU on the PS3 or Comcast through the AVR, would work, but not blu-ray discs? It seems like its all 3d content, and given the PS3 recognizes my...

Or, Jedi, is it still worth moving cables around? Seems like if the ps3 can provide 3d from vudu it's not the port or cable. But I am far from an expert.

TonyDP, I did as you suggested and downloaded the vudu app. 3d worked perfectly on a wonderfully cheesy nic cage trailer. Does that mean the disc itself is damaged?
