I got some distorted audio again watching something on Hulu. It seems to be localized to Hulu and not all of the time. I watched whatever it was on Fire TV Stick (Hulu on TiVo's been flaky lately),...

I watched the entire thing and I'm pretty psyched. We'll see whether the integration of clans and the "guided games" concept actually gets me into more end-game content.

They're adding an on-screen app UI aren't they, similar to Google/Android TV? Sony and NVIDIA have gotten Amazon Video apps for their Android TV platforms; I wonder if Vizio will.

Do you think that the 8 hours 42 minutes for encoding 40 seconds of 1080p into AV1 on a 4th gen i7 was erroneously quoted?

That time was for encoding AV1; I wonder how fast VP9 encoders were when it was at a similar state of development?

I ordered my P65-C1 from Vizio on Monday; their shipper tried to deliver it this morning (Davis Trucking, a small local company).

8 hours, 42 minutes on an i7 notebook to encode a 40 second 1080p clip :eek:? (Of course, no commercial streaming video service encodes using i7 notebooks :D).

Encouraging news, though.

AFAIK only VUDU and some PC games are using DD+/Atmos (it'll probably only ever be used for streaming and by games). It is featured on a minor subset of VUDU's 4K titles (looks like 29 right now)...

Correct on all counts. The best that you're going to get over ARC right now is DD+, which can be a variant of Atmos (I believe that only VUDU is streaming that). Not all devices will transmit DD+...
