I got a b stock UH480 and couldn't be happier. It's a fantastic lens. Get the right one the first time, because it will be hard to justify getting the 480 later if you're unhappy with the 380 and...

Yeah, these ones plus Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol AND Jack Reacher. Cruise has knocked them out of the park lately. I don't give a rip what he does in his personal life, his acting has the...

Wouldn't you just bitstream from your gpu hdmi to your receiver and the receiver decodes it?
