Anyone serious about using a Shield for cable card and Comcast should buy a Prime. The Ceton stuff just has too many trade offs, proper software support not the least. I fully expect Kodi will get...

When you see what is out there anywhere near the size you are talking about 8 grand or much more. It would be a lot cheaper to repair rather then replace, assuming Mits can provide spares. I am under...

I really donot know what to make of this video. Is this running over wired ethernet or over wifi?

I don't get it, WMC could play 1080i smoothly on early AMD X2s. I just don't understand why the SD...

The Shield's TV/DVR is highly dependent on Silicondust. The Homerun View app is still pretty rough. The TVJUNKIE MOD for Kodi is interesting but unless the underlying Homerun View app is more robust...

There are huge markups in the bigger than 80" displays. The Sammy 85" 7100 was $6999 over Black Friday weekend. So deals are out there if you are in the right place at right time. You can bet there...

My 92840 is now 4 years old. If your ambient light levels is high, I would not suggest the set. It is okay with a fresh lamp in a daylight room but at 6 months on the lamp you would not be happy. I...

The 82840 is a much better display than the 2009 XX737 models. I have an 82837 and I never was happy with it. The 840s with the clear screens are much, much better TVs.

Sorry, I have not seen the 82842. Actually, I have never seen a 2012 at all. I have seen 2008, 2009 and 2011 examples. For critical viewing IMO you really need a Lumagen unless Mits worked a miracle...

Any feedback on the DM85UXR? It is now under 5K at Costco. The 85" Sammy is nearly double. When I looked at the Samsung the dimming behavior did not seem great for $10K TV.
