I'm not sure we ever saw any real connection between Saul and Fring. Mike yes, Saul no. So I thought Saul's only knowledge of Fring was peripherally through Mike. My memory is often flawed, but...

You have perfectly described what happens with a dodgy HDMI cable. Replacing that is your first step. Assuming you also have HDMI connected from the 1040 to your TV, don't assume that's not the...

I blame the Netflix app, cause I've experienced the same thing on another device with a similar version app. I've also seen some brief video glitches that sometimes coincide.

You might want to talk it over with Oppo support to see if they have any insight. Without further information I wouldn't rule out HDMI handshakes being the cause. Assuming you have HDMI connected...

The Dune H1 has user-definable output resolution, but not "native" or "source direct", so you'd have to change the output setting for everything you play. But note: the Dune can act as an SMB server...

Frankly if you have the option of using coax, do so. I never trust optical connects, they tend to do just this sort of thing. If you find that coax works good and want to try to get optical working...

I think the point was that if you want to decrease the comparisons to BB, taking that out of the thread title might help.

FWIW, Zappiti allows you to have offline files, it just won't let you add offline files, since it needs to scan them to add them. Once added, they can be offline forever. Just be aware that if you do...

Most, if not all, AVRs made today far exceed THX standards. (and have for some years). THX certification is outdated, and certainly doesn't warrant the hefty license fee.

Nobody has reported DolbyTHD dropouts on the 103/103D models. You are misinformed.

The issue is WELL documented in the dedicated threads for the 83 and 93 models.

Honestly, the JBL subs in this price range are under-performers. In this price range I'd go with either of those other options. You'll likely find info about either in the subwoofer forum. OTOH,...
