Oh wow, nice! I have a rip of D-Theater True Lies. Better than the DVD, but every time I watch it, I long for the Blu-ray.

How so, could you provide some more details? Does the blurriness of the stream help the FX not stand out as much? Does the clarity of the transfer exacerbate the faults? Too much aliasing on the...

I only have CAWS. Is it repeatable at the same timestamp(s)? I haven't noticed anything before, but I'll check it out if you can narrow it down.

For the short time we had our 4K TV, everything looked much, much better, but it replaced a 7 year old 1080p LCD, so the same could likely be said of any newer TV.

Yes, you're all correct. 4K is dead and it will never take off. They don't sell 4K TVs and there will never be 4K media....

Cowboy Bebop showed up on my doorstep yesterday! Great improvement over its SD releases, lots of little extras that I haven't had before. $50 felt a bit steep, but I'm not regretting it. ;)

The P502ui-B1E from Walmart is a native 60Hz panel that can accept a 120Hz signal and does internal processing at 120Hz, but the final output is 60Hz. If you try to actually game at 120fps or watch...

Since it's a 60Hz panel, trying to do anything over that will be a waste of time and effort. If you want true 120Hz output from a TV, you'll have to exchange it for something else. Vizio support...

I'll post pictures when I get home of the B1E connected at 120Hz in the control panel and of the BlurBuster test. I'll also post images of how it behaves with different settings enabled and disabled.

Just got off the phone with Yamaha. The official tech answer is:

1. It is 1.4a, but that doesn't matter.
2. It can't pass 4K.
3. It will never pass 4K.

Bad form, Yamaha.
