A 4K channel from Comcast? That should be good for a laugh. With the amount of (over-)compression that they use a 4K channel will be a waste of space and time. Better or equal results would be...

Earlier firmware revisions had bugs that caused 1080p -- and maybe 1080i -- settings to not stick. Your newly-installed X1 box may have one of those old firmware revisions installed. If so, it'll...

My point was that the masses are abandoning purchases/downloads and are moving to streaming. File formats are less of a concern at that point.

I agree that lossless is good.

HDMI is probably your best option. You could use analog but it would be stereo only. And would also need to be re-digitized inside your 5010 if you use Audyssey or any other processing (likely in...

There really is no such thing as a "plug-n-play" cartridge, or at least no standard for such things. Some vendors will pre-install a cartridge into a headshell for you and refer to the resulting...

Looks like another nationwide (or nearly so) outage for X1. This is getting to be unacceptable. Comcast's forum website seems to be struggling under the load of customers trying to check what's up,...

Are the programs that you're watching actually broadcast in Dolby Digital with more than 2 channels? If they have PCM stereo or Dolby Digital 2.0 audio then I believe that's all you'll get.

Wireless versus wired may not matter. The only way to be certain is to try it both ways. The more variables you can eliminate, the closer you'll get to the cause (hopefully!).

I have it working with my Sony KDL65W850A and RX-A2040. There might have been other settings that I changed but have forgotten. The Yamaha AVRs aren't exactly user-friendly to set up properly.
