I highly recommend Plex Media Server on the Mac! Especially for MKV files. Plex app works fine on Samsung and Roku, I haven't tried it on anything else. Supposedly you can jailbreak the ATV to run...

I wouldn't buy. DOCSIS 3.1 cable technology with 10GBs down / 1Gb up is right around the corner, along with wifi at similar speeds.

I would't know, I thought they were trying to sell sound systems, but they would suck equally as much if you were trying to use it as a computer, a car, or a space shuttle. :)

Right. But any of the inputs will be superior to the analog tape. Even if you use a composite output to a digital recorder, you will get a better picture than on the tape. S-video (YUV), you will...

Yes, MKV is the best format. Use Makemkv. I like how it keeps everything native without having to touch any settings. I always use the Beta versions, and the only thing I need to watch for is...

I have the latest Mac Mini connected to my Yamaha receiver, and I often can't get the picture back when I switch from another source on my receiver, unless I turn the TV off and back on.

It depends where you want to pick the signal up from. If you digitized it from the S-video output, you will get a clearer picture than recording to Hi-8 or S-VHS tape. If you are talking about the...

I'll wait until they're $1000. I hope they also do a true 4K 17:9 and variable refresh rates, or at least 1200Hz constant. 1200 is the number you need to avoid uneven pulldown on 24,25,48,50,and...

Ok that camera is almost perfect. So close that I would buy it if I had the money and could justify buying a $10k camera. Does it have a true 4096 pixel sensor? Add global shutter, then it really...

I think the Ascend CBM-170SE sounds fantastic for both music and movies. Might be something else to put on your list of options at least.

The S-video cable would still offer no benefit over composite if your tapes were recorded on standard VHS. However, I don't think it will hurt it any. I think both capture methods you mentioned will...

I assume you mean an SLR, not a 8/16/35mm movie camera? I think it's great, I am hoping to get a Nikon FM or something soon. I have a D610, it has the same lens mount, but I don't think my modern G...

Definitely option 1: Digital 8 camcorder. Assuming it's in good working order of course. Also leave it in the firewire native DV codec. On an iMac, it will be a .DV container, unless you modify the...

Why not buy a Nikon D610? I think that's your only option for $2k and have AF on your lenses. Get a Zacuto to make it more ergonomic. You also need a solution for high quality audio recording. You...

FYI, the RX-V677 has HDMI 2.0 and supports 4K/60p, so it will be more future proof than the 475 and 477.

As for speakers, I also do 50/50 music/movies. So I went with the Ascend Acoustics for my...

That's sweet, Sony would be wise to focus on E-mount lenses (no pun intended). I guess they didn't really need the Minolta acquisition in the first place.

If you step down to the CX430, you will go from the big 1'' sensor to just a 1/4.'' The PJ790 has a 1/3'' but it's the same price as the CX900, you are paying for a built-in projector.

Yeah lenses are more important than bodies. The Nano-coated f/2.8 zooms are awesome lenses. Obviously Sony did not want to market big heavy 2.8 zooms for the E-mount, so limited the lenses to f/4....
