I now have 1471 on my 3500U in the UK too. Oddly, despite my settings being set to 'manual' firmware upgrade, this updated automatically without interaction. Amazon app also updated to 13.000, and...

The PS4 Pro has only just been released. Give it a chance (and wait for the patches). The XB1S has had it's fair share of problems with 4k/HDR too, so it's nothing new.

As for gaming problems,...

I know it might be early days, but it would be useful to know about which direction HDR suport is heading on the SEK-3500 w/HU series panels.

1. Samsung have indicated that Netflix app should be...

I like you referring to it as the 'British way'. Those settings I was using were actually calibrated settings from another SEK/HU7500 combo. I'd been using them for months, and thought they were very...

I'm curious. The calibration settings you take are for each HDMI input. Is this based on devices YOU personally have connected to these inputs, or does each input genuinely have different settings?...

The standout demos there are the Jazz and Chess ones. Jaw-dropping quality on my UK HU7500 + SEK-3500. If 4k Netflix HDR is anywhere near that quality - when we finally get it - then we're in for a...

Two problems with my UK HU7500+3500U;

Apologies if this has been covered before, but, I have a UK HU7500 (US 8550) with 3500U. All is working fine except for one thing. Pre-3500, using the old lozenge remote control, I configured the...

I have to ask, if it was working perfectly in W7, why the heck did you upgrade to 10, on an HTPC of all things that pretty much only does one job? My HTPC is staying W7 until it's pried from my dead...

The ATV is an overpriced, under-spec'd media streamer that only makes sense if you're shackled to Apple's ecosystem. For anyone else, there's plenty of better, cheaper solutions that are way more...

It's pretty much a bog standard audio stream. Nothing special at all. Do you get audio when playing it back in MPC-HC?

And why exactly is Win7 archaic? What real benefits does Win10 bring you (don't give me the 'it's faster, or quicker to boot'). That's all subjective, and independent tests have shown their really...

Good call. Yeah, stay with 7. Win10 is a train wreck, and offers no real benefit's, and don't even think about using it as an HTPC.

Defiantly a strange one. I too run Emby for WMC with MPC-HC 1.7.10 as an external player, but I do use LAV/MadVR. I can honestly say I've never seen the problems you're describing. I've never liked...

I've never had any problem whatsoever with Emby gathering correct metadata. Infact, I used to use MCM, but have now switched over to Emby entirely for all metadata management. It's got far more...

I use both, and they both have their good and not-so-good points. Emby is on a very rapid development cycle, and is in the best position for the future, but it was Emby Classic (that requires WMC)...

Second the Shield. Awesome media platform. Android TV still needs some work, but Kodi will run very sweet on it.

Windows 10 + drivers = big problem for many. Going back to Win7 or even 8.1 might give you a much smoother ride.

Let's just clarify this. Windows 10 is nothing more than MS trying to monetize the desktop user in a new way. It didn't work out with Windows 8, and Windows 7 (the last and greatest Windows O/S) just...
