I'm sure they know, they just don't seem to care unless you break your TiVo doing it. If they cared they could easily block upgrades or at least make it more difficult.

I've never heard of TiVo not honoring a warranty just because a hard drive was upgraded, assuming of course the warranty issue was unrelated.

Just not sure why I never needed to turn it on when using my Mede8er or HTPC on HDMI 2, and 2D looked fine. Oh well. Was thinking of a new receiver anyway so not going back, but perhaps my other...

Putting an HDMI switch between the HTPC and projector gives me a good signal so I will probably stick with that solution for now. Seems to be a typical HTPC HDMI handshaking issue. Very...

What is needed exactly to get SBS 3D MKV playback from an HTPC?

Previously using a Mede8er for some 3D MKV playback to my Epson 6030 projector, but thought I'd experiment with moving to Plex running on an Intel NUC.

I tried switching the NUC through my HDMI...

I found some threads indicating the lack of 3D detection is due to playback of MKVs... too bad. Would love to have discrete codes kicking the projector into SBS/TOB/Auto mode though.

Epson 6030 3D Auto mode not working, discrete 3D codes?

After sitting on it for months I'm finally starting to get 3D playback working well on my Epson 6030. I'm mostly going to play ripped MKV files (on a Mede8er MED600X3D if that matters).

Not sure...

So happy with my new TiVo setup. Plex is lacking a bit if you primarily use local media, but for me it's fine. Hoping they continue to improve it.

Hi -

From what I can tell it is, and others report it is 1080p on the Bolt as well. I believe it's up to 2160p.

I agree.




That's because your requirements are minimal. Most people do use streaming services nowadays, and no one wants to replace every TV in their house with smart TVs.
