Thanks for reminding me about Vudu... I was just thinking that I was pretty happy with all the streaming services on the PS3 and debating returning the Shield. However, I've never been able to get...

Maybe it's just me but I've always preferred bass with headphones over a speaker-subwoofer system, at least in terms of how the bass "sounds" (the tactile sensation is something that's lost with...

Yeah, Plex Home Theater will pass the audio formats just fine, it's all the quirks associated with Windows and Plex itself that were driving me crazy. The other one I forgot about was lipsync...

Good info all around. I'm assuming you're using Plex on it... and that the Shield can do lossless audio in Plex? (In my searches I haven't seen an actual confirmation that it does.) Per my usual...

Should I ditch my HTPC as a player or ditch Plex?

So my Windows 10 HTPC is my Plex server and player. But, as a player, it's gotten to be excessively frustrating lately. On my TV the resolution suddenly started extending past the borders of the...

Is the sound any better? Never been a fan of IMAX sound. Too grating for my taste, and the bass tends to muffle the dialogue.

Nice to see that BvS made up for the bass-embarrassment that was Man of Steel. I think in Man of Steel, I actually checked to see if my subs were on. With BvS, the film lets you know right away...

They ended up looking way better than I intended--I wasn't going for a true Piano gloss. Kinda sounds like what this guy is trying to do.

If you like pop-out... watch Ghostbusters in 3D

"Frame-break", I don't think that's the original term for it, when the 3d effects extend out past the black bars, but that's one I saw used by IMAX to describe it. Don't know how if all 3D...

I think it actually makes sense to NOT include 3D in the initial UHD phase. That way they have another way to get us to upgrade again in 3-4 years. I wouldn't be too concerned about it. If it's...
