Unless the 4K player breaks the audio and video into 2 separate outputs, I wouldn't be able to separate what portion of the 18gb bandwidth is video only. And on devices that do separate video and...

Thanks. I did not know that it will be produced in Dolby Vision - I'm anxious to find out how much difference that makes (when Dolby Vision certified TVs are available). There isn't much info on...

I prefer first person shooters for gaming - I'm not so much into games where you beat dead horses although I delight in beating Nazi zombies so maybe I'll try to find some zombie horse games (as long...

Hopefully it will actually have a full on HDMI 2.0a port (not a "compatible" halfway effort) . If they can get the price in a more reasonable range by the time it comes out I would be very...

I believe Dolby Vision requires a brighter screen and a 12 bit panel. It isn't full HDR so it is only compatible-I've posted hdmi.org and other sources on this twice. I doubt dolby vision...

While that equation gets you very close, I think it is partially due to chance. If the a standard screen ratio is 16x9 then the equation might look something like this - 74.5^2 =...

That sucks on so many levels. Looking forward to the new toy, waiting around for delivery, having to spend time doing what you could have done earlier. I sincerely hope they have one in stock...

I'm not an ee who designed the spec - all I can do is repeat what I've read in a few places. Since one of them is hdmi.org, I tend to believe them. Here are some clips I found doing a search just...

Good luck. I'd demand it in writing signed by the store manager that it is guaranteed to have a full 18gbit throughput. (not that sales doublespeak of compatible or even supports)

Return the Sonos, buy a nice surround sound system. Everytime I watch a show that is only in stereo it seems muffled to me. It makes that much of a difference. If you are willing to get a very...

That is really a shame about the motion - that is one of the best features of my current Sony. Hopefully there will be a firmware fix. I expect you'll probably get some hate mail from fanboys but...

I'm sure it can play - just not in rich color afforded by the new spec and without some additional bonuses depending on the source material.

They won't do HDR, not sure about the fps limitations and they won't connect at HDMI 2.0a 18 speed.

I'm somewhat in the same boat. I have a 65" 4K and it is nice but too small. Should I get a 75" this year or wait to see if an 85" is affordable next year is my dilemma. And there is the chance...

I don't want curved, I don't want a puny 65" and IMHO the upscaling on the LG sucks. Motion on it isn't anything to write home about either. That being said when Samsung and Sony get into OLED...

No regrets for me. I stream all of my movies from my PC to my TV. I needed a new TV and got one with a great picture. Upscaled 1080p still looks better than 1080p IMHO. I'll move that 850a to...

Why not - and then those people with the excess of money who could afford a $25,000 screen can upgrade to a flat model a year or two from now. Frankly if they are dishing out that kind of money,...

I have the FMP-X1 and I'm about to put it on ebay with $300 of unused credits for movies and I'm not bothering to buy the X10 so I'd suggest you skip it as well. It gives you 4K movies now but a...

I suppose. I won't bother with the x10 either. Sony's 4k media players aren't what I'm looking for. I got it to test 4K on my TV. The experiment is over. I've got the original box and...

Interesting. I guess I'll see if I can sell it as I've got $300 credit for downloads and a barely used FMP. Unfortunately that is a pretty niche market for resale.

Thanks - I have the same movies on BD and the DTS-MA for whatever reason sounds significantly better. It's a shame I can't convert them to something so I can get rid of the FMP.

I realize this is a strange question but do you think the FMP-X1 would work with the 940c? I have the 850a and THINK (I don't know) the TV controls the FMP.
