I've never tried price matching because their FAQ specifically says they don't. For me, Best Buy and Amazon are the same price since they both charge me taxes. And I have no problem getting BestBuy...

I would hope that isn't true. That would be a great way to kill it. I would either sell or throw mine away if that were the case.

Even though it's not accurate it nothing new that it is referred to as 2K. Just like 3840 is referred to as 4K. And 7680 is referred to as 8K.

Try using the ARC with the XBOne. I have been using it recently with my PS4 and XBOne and it works very well. Just set it for DTS or DD output. Much easier than having to run another cable.

I think that is something else. I was seeing that issue on my TiVo Bolts last night. It wouldn't show Ultra HD, just HD. But when I would stream, it would still play the 2160P encodes.

Is it actually cross-talk free though? I can only speak of my experience with passive 2K sets. Those sets that I've seen typically had cross-talk. More than my 850C Active 4K set. And way more than...

But some recent info posted today mentioned that 3D would only be on the upper in sets. 930/940. Which if true means the 850D won't have 3D while the 850C does have 3D.

If recent info is correct with the Sony 4K line. Only the 2016 high end 93/94 series will have 3D capability. I'm glad I got my 850C model last year which does have 3D.

The vast majority of people didn't use S-Video. They used/still use composite video. And the 4K TVs still have a composite video input.

Look in the thread for your model TV. Usually you need to use a specific setting. For instance on my SOny set you need to set the HDMI input to "enhanced" to take advantage of the 10 bit input.
