Thanks, Max. So far, loss of networking is my only symptom. I'll run MultEQ XT 32 this afternoon. Before doing that, I'll try your workaround as I'd prefer to reload Pro . In any case, I only need to get through the next week with guests before taking it to the nearest authorized center.
For your own benefit I assume? Guests will typically be blown away regardless I would expect?
I saw The Hobbit in 3D IMAX yesterday. I was totally blown away by the 3D - it was just sensationally immersive and involving on that huge screen. At home I don't bother with 3D at all - I think you do need a vast screen for it to work well. The sound was very good (this is a brand new IMAX only opened a few weeks ago so I expect it has all the latest refinements). But it wasn't as good as my sound at home. My bass is better, my treble is better, my imaging is better, my overall refinement is better. The only thing about the sound that struck me as better than what I have at home was the absolutely huge soundstage - but short of selling my house and buying an IMAX theatre, I am never going to be able to have a space like that am I!
EDIT: Incidentally, this movie was shot digitally at 48 fps. It did not look as 'filmic' as traditionally shot movies (using film) but other than the lack of motion blur, I didn’t see any special issues because of the frame rate. It didn't look like 'video' to me but it did have the 'digital' look that all movies shot digitally have, regardless of their frame rate. I think that for a very fast-paced action movie like The Hobbit, the 48 fps is a benefit rather than a negative (as some seem to believe).
Incidentally, the cinema manager was telling me that they have had to fit the server inside the projector for The Hobbit as no cables can currently handle the bandwidth. Usually (and I didn't know this till yesterday) the servers are centrally located and the movie is fed out to the PJ via cable. (The cinema manager is a friend of the friend I went to see the movie with - even I am not as geeky as to engage the cinema manager every time I go see a film! :)) I am fairly convinced that the incredible 3D effects were at least partly due to the 48 fps BTW.
