I'm not questioning or commenting on the quality of the shows, just the assertion that Arrow, Flash and The 100 represent some sort of departure from the CW's courtship of the 18-34 y/o female demo. ...

Dr.KennethNoisewater specifically asked about it doing 4:4:4 at 4K@60. Due to limitations in interface bandwidth, it can only manage 4:2:0 at that resolution and frame rate.

What browser? A web browser on Windows? Only in the HTML5 Netflix player running in IE11 on Win8 will you see higher than 720p in a web browser. I thought that it was a limitation tied to their...

I posted the observation after watching a couple of the pilots (half an episode of Down Dog and 10-15 minutes of The Man in the High Castle); I'd had high hopes for them since they were produced in...

Health regeneration oriented; nice. If Xûr ever stocks it I'll be sure to pick it up. Since I'm not playing raids I'm sure I'll never be gifted it.

Obsidian Mind is highly super energy oriented....

Speaking of bounties, something that would improve this game tremendously, IMHO, is if they would come up with some more of them and cycle through them quickly, with none of them being the same as...

I'll try playing around with it--one of Eris' bounties makes you kill enemies with Arc or Solar damage so I have to function as a Sunsinger while completing that one. Given my disdain and poor...

Not entirely on topic, but I'm not finding Amazon 4K to be at all impressive. Of Netflix's 4K content pretty much only The Blacklist has really wowed me (and Marco Polo, in moments), but nothing...

I can't believe that resetting to factory defaults will roll back the firmware. That's the first thing that a CSR would have you before they started testing a complaint of a problem; all it will do...

If you say so. As I recall they both had horribly tiny market shares. The CW has to fare better without competition from a similar network.

You were right; got it. It turned into an Exotic Hunter Helmet, "Mask of the Third Man", with some nice perks on it. I almost broke it down for the shard by reflex but I remembered in time that I'd...

I note that Xûr has only another Exotic Sniper Rifle on offer this week (inferior to Ice Breaker) and for the third week in a row no Exotic Engram on sale for MoL. If they're going to remove that...

What is your 1080 source? It's upscaling of 720p60, 1080i60, 1080p60 and 1080p24 is so smooth and crisp on my P60 that I used to get up to take a close look at the screen to look for artifacts from...

The Vampire Diaries is in its sixth season and spun off The Originals, so they're not quite past it yet. I watched the pilot and had no interest.

Yes, you can. Why would you need a cable subscription? Unlike ESPN or HBO, Amazon Prime Instant Video is not a cable channel.

"Pixel Aspect Ratio". Some of the resolutions that they use are not 16:9, so sometimes the pixels are not square. All of the video encodes at resolutions of 720p, 1080p and 2160p use square pixels.

I think that Fable Legends multiplayer is co-op only. (You can be a villain and set up traps for the players fighting their way through but it's not PvP combat).
