Does your TV even take 120Hz inputs? Most 120Hz/240Hz TVs only takes 60Hz max for import signal. With HDMI, you need have both end agree on the same signal.

Sounds like what I have encountered with my 5200. It needs a firmware update and it is not easy to get through without screen display. I'm not sure how Sony can let this kind of player out of...

The best way to go to live TV is modify WMC and let it go to live TV directly. If all you use is HTPC, you can use a command line parameter to ask WMC to launch into Live TV. If you have both HTPC...

Forgot to mention that a mkv file can contain multiple audio tracks. So, always keep the original hi-res audio track unchanged and add a secondary track for compatibility purposes (like AC3 5.1). VLC...

DTS-HD discs don't contain any AC3 tracks nor separate DTS tracks (DTS can be extracted from DTS-HD track). If VLC can't play DTS-HD, it will not play any sound. I'm not familiar with VLC player...

If you don't see HDMI 2.0 explicitly mentioned anywhere, you can safely assume it is not supported. There are only a few handful of discrete video cards support it. Without HDMI 2.0, you can't get 4K...

To get 4K @ 60Hz, you will need the new HDMI 2.0 support. Does AMD 5350 supports HDMI 2.0?

1080p is ok for 24" or smaller. But for 27", you should look for at least QHD (2560x1440) or higher. Here is the thing, if you run Windows, too high of a resolution is not necessary a good thing...

All generations after x90 will only decode Dolby track to 2-ch LPCM. DTS HD MA are still fully decoded. In US, 7200 is the same as 6200 with a different case.

I'd recommend Costco for their life-time return policy on these players. However, I understand Costco currently only carries 3500 and maybe 5500 in the future. Probably no 6500 at all. They has 3200...

That's only true for cable length < 15feet. Anything over that is YMMV. @50ft the OP is using, that's really stretching. At that length, you are looking at spent significant amount of $$$ for cable....

HDMI 2.0 is only required for 4K resolution @60Hz. 1080p@60Hz doesn't have that requirement.

OP,


You are confusing with 4K @ 60Hz with DP 1.2. 1080p @ 60Hz is nothing. Every video card produced in past few years can do it. It doesn't require DP 1.2.

My win8 tablet, which uses a much slower chip, can stream Netflix just fine. I don't think your issue is lack of GPU power. High temp could be an issue. I won't let it run anywhere near 80s. The CPU...

It could be DVD spec doesn't support forced subtitle at all. Who knows. I have no interest buying or ripping DVDs ever since BD came to scene. Obviously most others do the same.

Not sure about DVDs. But with BD discs, forced subtitle shows up right underneath the regular subtitle track. You can rip only the forced subtitle tracks. There is a thread here about force subtitles.
