That's funny since Comcastic claims that only a small percentage of their customers use a TB of data in a month. If I cut the cord, even at HD speeds the four of us in the household (often watching...

This is mostly a trend with Comcast and they continue to do anti-net-nutrality type things like this. Currently it does not matter what speed or cost your connection is. Most customers now have a...

True and as I mentioned any attempt to protect the media just makes things worse for everyone and does nothing to shut down the true pirates. I don't think folks that want to "rip" media that they...

Ya I know but my Sony BD player which is I think one of the first they made still gets the occasional update. So maybe the moral is to pick companies better. I recently purchased a Marantz (designed,...

Hi all. I am piecing things together. As some of you may recall 1.7 released in '13 was actually created back in '10 or '11. I forget the date code and file date when you download. I am pretty sure...

Mirage is still in business. Just visited their web site. Maybe distribution is an issue. I have the OC3-CC. Was $340ish one I picked it up but it and the sub only ran me $13.31 after Discover cash...
