Thanks - they said scart in the video but I thought that might be a word that didn't translate when I tried to look it up. I haven't heard of one before. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCART

The link is about 1 second early as he skims over the connector so quickly, I didn't want people to miss it. I'm asking about the big honkin' thing about 6cm long with about 30 pin female receptor. ...

I'm not sure if this has been asked before but what is this big connector in the middle at 3:27?

I'm starting to feel that way too. So many specs - HDR, REC 2020, HDMI 2.0 18GB/s - not the same as HDMI 2.0 10GB/s, 60FPS, 10 bit screen vs. 10 bit dithering, HDCP 2.2, NITs, FALD or edge lit...

Ray is one of the lucky people who are not impacted by motion. That is a good thing for him and people like him. It is a scientific fact that LCD does not produce motions as smooth as plasma - no...

If I were you and you end up with a 65" I'd seek out an unopened Samsung or Panasonic plasma. Motion on even a 2015 LCD or OLED is not going to be as good as plasma and since you said it was...

Once they get their screens straightened out I might want one. Oh and the reflective bezel needs to go too. One more thing - since over 50% of my viewing is TV shows, I'd rather have a 16:9 TV.

Thanks for asking.
Is the HDMI point 18gb/s or 10gb/s please. (also how many ports are 18gb/s if any)
Not sure if it has been definitively stated or guessed at - how many zones for the local...

If you haven't used Spears & Munsil or Disney WOW to tweak the TV yet, I highly recommend it as the Sony's aren't very impressive until you really take the time to tweak them - then they look...

I believe the 18Gb/s is if you are doing 50-60fps or 3D on a 4K disc. I don't change out my TVs very often so I'll make sure it is the full 18Gb/s before I jump in as I don't want to settle. ...

I think the issue is Oppo will either have to put in a very flexible streaming media player in their next disc player or they'll have to consider offering 2 different units - one more focused on...

There in lies the rub - the use of the word compatible. A USB 3.0 memory stick is compatible with a usb 2.0 port but that doesn't mean you get the full speed of a usb 3.0 memory stick in a 2.0...

Lower price and bigger screen vs. potentially being able to show off 4K in better color, better upscaling, better motion and a menu system that is less likely to be abandoned - these are the pros and...

What about 4:4:4? - Honestly don't really understand the difference between HDR and 4:4:4 and Rec 2020 - there are a lot of terms to keep straight. I'd also love to know what my older 850a had...

I haven't tried them yet but I'm sure they are nice. My old Sony media player is worthless. It can't decode DTS or any acceptable surround sound and to me sound is nearly as important as the...

Congrats! Mind if I asked how you mounted it? Did it come with a mount? That is a pretty heavy TV.

I've ripped 50 3D movies with makemkv. For some reason Bolt is the only one my Oppo 103 can't play back.

Thanks for posting. I still keep waffling about what I'll do but I too hope we'll see a new 950c by late Fall.

Who told you that!?! Are you talking list? My guess is the first player on the market might be expensive but within 3 months we'll see $300 4K players. I'd also expect to see 4k BD movies going...

I looked at that a while back but forgot what concerned me - isn't that about $15,000? If so it would be a tad out of my price range - by about $10,000 :)

I admit the ONLY time I still use the disc tray on my Oppo is if I put in a calibration disc. I've ripped ever single one of my movies and I could never go back to digging through 1000's of discs...
