Seems bizarre to me. Isn't a 3D signal basically the same as a 2D signal? Just looks blurry without the glasses. Or is there more to it?

Maybe I'm losing my my mind, but isn't LG coming out with HDR OLED TVs?

I could swear I read that somewhere.

Good points. You changed my mind. New boxes would be required.

I suspect when they switch to OTA UHD, there will be lot more UHD TVs than there were HDTVs during the last transition. For one...

I would wait a couple of months and get HDMI 2. Right now, all decent TVs are UHD. In a few years, non UHD TVs will be relegated to to the super cheap brands. So if your panny plasma ever needs...

Varies with specific model.

UHD is not 3 years away. UHD blu-ray is coming out later this year and I would guess all new major motion picture releases will be available in UHD.

Be patient. UHD is inevitable. It will start out as pay per view, then maybe a premium channel or two, and eventually there will be a 100 or so channels. Once a provider offers HEVC tuners and a few...

It's been my experience that your connection speed isn't the problem. The problem is lack of bandwidth on the provider side. I get much better connections at 6 AM than at 9 PM, even though my plan...

From my experience in my rooms, when you place multiple subs, don't place them symmetrically. If you put one in a corner, put another along a wall.

Think about it. If you're in the middle of the...

I like the idea of getting 2, but I would get 2 ported. Sealed are better for small rooms where you get good room gain. With a 28' dimension, you won't get any room gain so I would go ported.

He would feel honored if they were comparable. Comparing and stating one is in a different echelon is belittling to the lesser.
