I follow High Def Digest and saw that article. So? We've already established that there are people who'd buy the XB1S if it had direct bitstreaming of Atmos. By "a very few", I don't mean 10--I...

If they were targeting A/V enthusiasts then it would feature direct bitstreaming of advanced audio encodings. They targeting video games with 4K TVs, most of whom will be listening to whatever audio...

The Xbox is examining E-EDID over HDMI to determine your television's capabilities. I'm sure that it won't send your television anything that it can't handle.

Ah--I see that the 2016 P50 is a 60Hz panel and all the others are 120Hz (in 2014 there were 2 P50s, one of them being 60Hz and the other being 120Hz). With the exception of it not supporting...

Not according to the specs that I see at Vizio's site for the 2016 P-Series:



HDMI 5 is the only port which supports their 1080@120Hz "High Velocity Mode", but 1-4 support 2160@60Hz and at...

I see that the 500GB Amazon pre-orders turned into Halo bundles. I haven't bought Halo 5 so that's fine. I do already own the MC collection.

These are the same options in the preview build. "Bitstream" is not direct bitstream; it's processing the sound, mixing in its UI sounds and, instead of outputting PCM, converting it into your...

Yeah--displaylag.com rates 0-20ms as "Excellent" and 21-41 as "Great"; 34.7 is probably good enough (for some reason they do not list any Vizios). A plus would be that I could use HDMI 1, the only...

FALD is what I was most interested in when I choose this television; I found out about the outstandingly low display latency on HDMI 5 with GLL enabled later. I crudely measured latency using the...

They seem to have done this on purpose, reversing the specs and performance of HDMI 5 with those of the other ports vis-a-vis the 2014 P-Series, in all except for the very low display latency...

Looks like they just announced that at the beginning of this month, along with some 2016 LG TVs; the Roku/Vizio exclusive seems to be coming to an end. Hopefully they enable it for TiVo Bolt, which,...

I was reading what specs I could find on the 2016 P-Series and saw that HDMI ports 1-4 were listed as being HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2, while HDMI 5 is HDMI 1.4/HDCP 2.0; 1-4 all have 600MHz pixel clocks...

My TV (Vizio P602ui-B3, regretably non HDR) upscales games that the Xbox One delivers to it in 1080p to 4K and they look great. It will be interesting to see whether the Xbox does a better job.

You do have it connected to an HDMI 2.0 (or 2.0a) input with HDCP 2.2 protection? My TiVo Bolt would not send it 4K Netflix without those specs. I think that I can see that your television has HDMI...
