The 2014 Sonys had alternate mounting holes for their feet with spacing that would have worked for me; the 2015 Vizios do not (nor did the 2014 LGs). I guess that I could have bought one of those...

The worst part of these new sets is that their stands are feet set more widely than the width of my cabinet. I wouldn't have been able to buy my P60 if it'd had those. I've seen the 2015 60/70/80"...

Given that the FCC has just declared Internet service to be a regulatable utility, I see usage caps going away--I'd be like having your water turned off because you used too much. I expect usage...

Nice month. I'll probably take both Xbox One titles (though we have a table on the back patio :)) and I never played Gears: Judgement so I'll take that as well.

What? He was just seeing "1080" by itself and found that to be confusing?

That little display (which is debugging information and not a documented part of the UI) will simply say "1080"; "P" would be redundant since the encode is always progressive. It used to say "1080...

ARC only has the same capabilities as S/PDIF, being basic DD, basic DTS and 2-channel PCM; you do not get DD+ from the VIA apps and there is no audio quality advantage to ARC. I switch 8 HDMI...

AFAIK, all Netflix is encoded as either 24p (the vast majority), 25p (British television) or 30p (mostly old television). How the streaming device outputs the video to your television depends both...

I downloaded and tried it. There's no use of Kinect that I've been able to see; Rosetta Stone's Android app tests pronunciation and this doesn't.

It starts out with a scenario where you're in an...

I was speaking specifically of response by the Win8 Netflix app to commands from an A/V remote control. I should think that'd be independent of the mechanism for sending those commands, be it IR or...

Nope--it won't respond to IR remote control for me. Windows Media Player, Zune and VLC all respond (no doubt many, many others), but not the Netflix app :rolleyes:.

Thank you very much; that's all I wanted to know and proof enough for me that the Roku AIV channel is now getting the 1080p streams. The <3000 Kbps 720p encode would never average 10000 Kbps over 10...

I'm assuming that it was some model Roku box running the Amazon app (or "channel" :rolleyes:). Amazon's had 1080p video on a limited number of devices for a couple years, I believe.

It's not a "tab" so much as it is a "panel" on the AIV UI, like so:
