I asked a sound engineer from one of the biggest game studios, and he told me they do it for the same reason they only use the center for dialogue in movies - the center is typically the smallest...

Speaking of WMC though, I'm a little surprised they don't have full DVR ready in this release, but now they're basically one feature...

The problem is that you can only forward a port to one device at a time and the 360 and one use the same ports. If you're manually forwarding them to your 360 you're potentially now blocking them to...

Yeah, I'm hoping that's a stopgap though. I mean I know most lightweight windows apps are written in HTML5/silverlight/JS etc, which basically makes them a glorified webapp anyway. Not to say that...

I've read that before and it gives me hope, but until it's confirmed I'm trying not to get my hopes up. And I'm a little concerned that a little too much of chrome itself is going to be needed to...

I'm running in a VM so I attributed most of the UI lagginess to that, but it seemed to load pages very quick and crushes chrome in JS benchmarks. I just can't use a browser without extension support,...

If you're manually setting the eizo to limited RGB there's no conversion or processing happening. If you manually choose it on the PS4 either one or the other is going to be an exact match for auto,...

You bought that eizo panel, right? I dunno how it handles limited space/yCbCr but it's perfect in full. Set the ps4 to RGB full, set color temp to 6500K, set contrast and black level to 50. Turn...
