My CalMAN just upgraded to 5.5.1.1964. I don't think that's a beta. Is it?

It's a fortunate situation if you want to buy one. Yes, I'm a fanboi.

Old... oh well.

I have been considering MadVR very seriously. I'd have to get a new HTPC with enough horsepower (an ION/Atom isn't going to do it) and a receiver with good DAC's, though. I'm currently using my...

Does this camera have a live HDMI out? That is, can I get a real-time HDMI signal out of it while it's recording? The LX100 is a fabulous little camera but lacks this feature. I put cameras up in R/C...

Really! Boy... I'd be interested in that! I'm trying to figure out how to make my dispersion panels in the easiest way. Curvy? Post-y? 4x4's? They're all so tedious to build and expensive to buy.

I'm not sure where you got that. I don't think I've seen that whole-wall coverage recommendation, ever. That would make for a very dead room. And you'd have no dispersion at all.

For example, one...

That's a good test.



Good to know. I'm thinking of getting a new receiver with comparable DAC's or better to solve my lip syncing issues. I need an audio delay and the Poi doesn't do that.

HDMI is digital, so that bypasses the DAC's. But any analog out, including 2 channel and 7.1 channel uses them. I'm not sure about the subwoofer channel, though. Would it even make a difference?

Wonder if someone will ever measure the CR and tell us... All these reviews and no one measures CR? I wonder if Sony told them not to.

Yes, there are. But the SMX is definitely in the running. It's no slouch.

The only audio measurements I have are my own. It was very good to 18kHz and then down 3db @ 20. I'll see if I can find...

Just from my perspective:

The original cost doesn't matter.
I would never buy a curved screen.
And, most importantly it's orphaned.
