I guess they were trying to say Windows Media Player in Vista doesn't support DLNA like it does in Windows 7 and 8, so you'll need something else like the other programs that were mentioned. I don't...

I can't answer that, but I updated mine and I didn't notice a change, however I haven't had my TV professionally calibrated either.

Just set up a firewall rule if you're paranoid. I think there's an option to disable that stuff when you first run it though. I think that's mostly there to get the titles of DVDs and CDs and stuff.

WMP can play anything as long as you have the right codecs (Windows 7+ has codecs for almost everything). Anything that would play on the TV should work just fine in media player. I have no...

No, it doesn't mirror your computer's screen if that's what you're asking. The TV has a way to connect to the network and view files being shared on the network. If you use Windows Media Player to...

If your files are being broadcast on the network through DLNA, then connecting the ethernet cable from your tv to your router should absolutely allow you to stream them.

Looking at it now (The Middle rerun) it doesn't appear to have the issue, although it could be because The Middle comes from a 720p source. Commercial break looks fine, but I couldn't tell if any of...

Is it possible the issue is with the national CW source? This seems unlikely, but not impossible. I've only seen the same issue once before, and that was with Craig Ferguson's show, but all other...

Btw hvs, can you explain what's going on with cw25? It appears like either the fields have been swapped, or its only running at 1920x540 rather than full 1080i

What the heck happened to the audio on ABC 57 tonight during Modern Family? At first, there was no dialogue (bad downmix from 5.1 to stereo, cutting out the center channel?) and then later, the...

The line bleed in my TV doesn't appear to have changed at all. It's most prominent when you have perfectly horizontal lines in the image, which isn't all that common.

I believe the PS4 sets everything pretty optimally automatically. Only thing I'd check is if Super White (which is xvYCC color) is enabled for better colors on Blu-rays.

I usually do variable bitrate at the highest bitrate, 14mbps. It keeps the average at 14mbps, so there's some potential for it to go above 14mbps on some frames. For the most part it's not really...

Right. If it could do proper variable bitrate (even using constant ratefactor instead of two pass) it would easily look as good as Blu-ray, even at 14mbps. There are plenty of Blu-ray rips that are...

Most Blu-ray movies are around ~18mbps. 36mbps is the max bitrate for Blu-ray and is rarely used. You're also comparing MPEG2 bitrates with AVC bitrates, and obviously AVC has a much higher...

Plug in as many devices through your receiver as you can. If you plug it into the TV and then use the toslink, you will only get stereo PCM I believe. You can only get dolby 5.1 over the toslink...
