I tried it last night too. I didn't think the lag was so bad. Noticeable yes. But for the things I'd use mirroring for, trivial. If I were trying to use a mouse looking only at the TV, then it'd be...

1: Great idea. Thanks especially for the note about fan selection.
2: Did you decorate the walls of your workshop with old motherboards? I love it.

Woah. Smart hub can do that? Maybe I wrote it off too quickly. How do you establish the connection between a Windows 8 tablet and the display?

That's really interesting. Value Electronics calibrated mine too. CAL-DAY has cell set at 20, and CAL_NIGHT has cell set at 18. Both are a pretty big difference from your 11.

Oh yeah, I agree. I'm not advising active biamplification for the OP or for anyone else specific. I'm only pointing out that proven options are very reasonably priced if that route is chosen.

I'm curious why you don't think the go-to 100$ electronic crossover isn't good.

Yes, you can pause and rewind like with most recorders. The only limitation I've noticed is that I can't pause for very long. If I leave it paused for 7 minutes, it starts playing again. I'm not sure...

My thoughts exactly. At 120$ per year I might jump in. That's a comparable price to Amazon Prime, and I think I'd get comparable benefit from it. But at 180$ per year it's in a totally different...
