Thanks, I don't think I've ever used those features that don't necessarily work with multi-core processors. I use standalone Blu-ray player for DVD playback, I do have a network but basically not...

If you step away from your 8700UB for 10-20 minutes, do you blank the screen first using the Blank button on the remote?

I presume that ATSC 3.0 won't just steamroll current HDTV transmissions and that there will be a nice-lone-overlap.

I'm doing my best to avoid both.

I have the S390 and a free trial of Amazon Prime for ~2 more weeks. Can I stream video via Amazon Prime through the Sony? Or is this only through my PC?

I'm at about 1800 hours on the original bulb, which is fine AFAIK. I have no replacement.

I still have mine. Good piece of equipment. Fact is that 98% of the time I watch movies it's DVDs. 'Cause my local library still doesn't buy BDs.

Yes, just one tuner in the PC I normally use. I have a MyHD 120 in another PC, but until I replace the bad HD in it, I can't boot it! I think that's what's going on there, I just haven't gotten...

I said it wasn't because of Vampidemic's comments in a few posts back, quoted above (see bolded).
