Good info all around. I'm assuming you're using Plex on it... and that the Shield can do lossless audio in Plex? (In my searches I haven't seen an actual confirmation that it does.) Per my usual...

Should I ditch my HTPC as a player or ditch Plex?

Is the sound any better? Never been a fan of IMAX sound. Too grating for my taste, and the bass tends to muffle the dialogue.

Nice to see that BvS made up for the bass-embarrassment that was Man of Steel. I think in Man of Steel, I actually checked to see if my subs were on. With BvS, the film lets you know right away...

They ended up looking way better than I intended--I wasn't going for a true Piano gloss. Kinda sounds like what this guy is trying to do.

If you like pop-out... watch Ghostbusters in 3D

"Frame-break", I don't think that's the original term for it, when the 3d effects extend out past the black bars, but that's one I saw used by IMAX to describe it. Don't know how if all 3D...

I think it actually makes sense to NOT include 3D in the initial UHD phase. That way they have another way to get us to upgrade again in 3-4 years. I wouldn't be too concerned about it. If it's...

If you're gonna advertise as pick-up only and aren't going to give a general description of what part of the world you live in, I feel like you're going to be sending an awful lot of PMs.
