The Pioneer comments make little sense to me. Maybe it is a numbers game saying they support a bunch if stuff that sounds cool but doesn't even exist (and frankly won't with the HDCP they ommited)....

Tough choices for those looking to invest early. At this point I almost wish Atmos held out another year bringing it closer to the launch (fingers crossed) of 4K Blu-ray. That way you don't get in...

Have you tried different default values to start for gamma? That is what if suggest. How may hours are on your bulb? I use the dark level adjustment to bring up the bottom end a bit but that's it. I...

That's exactly what I'd do. I have never needed to touch contrast yet, but every pj is a little different and hours make a difference.

Sounds like a grayscale issue. If you don't have the tools to calibrate you should be fine doing it the way you said.

It isn't a problem with the player. Probably how the Pioneer handles it. I've used the 4K output on the oppo for months now and never had a single lip synch issue. Too many variables, which is why I...

If your buying now for 4K Bluray future proofing your kidding yourself. Holiday 2015 at the earliest, which is two projector cycles away and nearly two AVR cycles. Other than whatever Atmos brings to...

It is impossible to turn off MPC if you are feeding the JVC a 4K signal. Switch your Blu-ray player to 1080p. Also if you are using an Oppo player, make sure you haven't set some lip synch delay in...

I was certainly in no way shape or form saying that Atmos wasn't getting the full support of Hollywood in theaters. That has been obvious for awhile. I was just surprised by the lack of information...

Hard to say what the issue is. The FH is a 1.3 gain screen and I would expect about 14ish fL with that screen size and those hours. Without knowing all the settings and seeing how your measuring it...

I've never said there would be no Atmos mixes on Blu-ray, obviously there will be. And I am not trying to be totally cynical either. I am just trying to taper my enthusiasm a bit until everything has...

I certainly don't think it's game over. Even on the mid level DLP projectors like the Planar you still get an amazing image. But I still say your metaphor is way off the mark. The lens quality on the...
