I'm with Zookster on the show's trajectory: after we defeat the...

Haswell is pretty fast, but the number of cores you have is the most important factor in determining encoding speed. You'll want at least 4 cores, and the i7 is faster than the i5, due to...

Oh man, that is so sad and so true. "Hey, the show's not that bad; it only sucks when they try to advance the plot!" :D

Now if only this show were half as good as Buffy was, then we'd be all set. At least the last two episodes were above average.

Ringing is a common artifact associated with upscaling an image. A scaled image always ends up blurrier than the original, so the goal of scaling algorithms is to make the scaled image as sharp as...

Yep. The purpose of all of this is just to get people to buy new equipment, after all. TV makers got greedy after the one-time TV purchase binge the US went on after the DTV transition, so now they...

I liked this one a lot more than the rest of what we've been getting lately, too. For once Ichabod and Katrina weren't bickering about their marriage in all their scenes together. I actually might be...

For the record, I continue to watch and enjoy this show for the silly bit of fun that it is. I just don't think there's much point in trying to discuss the silliness here, since nobody else seems to...

When I said "can't", I didn't mean that you were unable to test multiple things at once. I meant that doing so invalidates the test, assuming your goal was to conduct any kind of authoritative...

On the other hand, it's somewhat amusing to see all the people here who constantly ask what the best settings are. If MadVR et al. made that much of a difference, couldn't you just use your eyes to...

Sorry for the delay, but I just finished. Korra was a bit of a mixed bag, mainly because it wasn't designed to be cohesive.

You could particularly tell that season 1 was intended to stand alone,...

You won't get a cable guide with any firmware revision. No guide also means no clock, so you can't make timed recordings.

If Wikipedia's specifications are correct, the 960 is actually weaker than the 760 I already have. I wasn't planning to upgrade anyway, but now it seems that it would actually be a downgrade. Bring...
