Nice job on the mount.

The stock cradle is barely enough to support even one additional extension. It easily sags with any snow or ice accumulation.

Most likely Amazon. Never seen Amazon, but Netflix is no where near Blu-Ray quality.

How is your TV connected to the internet? Ethernet or Wi-Fi?

7.1 is 720p, but doesn't look nearly as good as WMAR. WJLA's equipment is FAR from state of the art. OTOH, the same programming looks great on Newschannel 8.
