Directv Now for $40/mo looks like a good option. I’ll I’d want is fox Sports and ESPN, and then I could use it at home and watch games at the lake. The antennae there works great right until the games start. Quite the anomaly.
Beast is setting me up with a probable fix for my PJ being so dim for most content. I downloaded Dominic Chan’s custom 85 nit curves, the JVC Autocal v7 software, and the bt2020 color profile for my rs400. This will brighten things up while maintaining the blacks. I’d rather sacrifice some black levels to be able to watch whatever source I want if that’s what it takes. Grant told me about this several months back but I was worried about screwing up my pj for good. Brandon has done this with his rs and says it’s night and day difference, and says he can walk me through it no problem.
I installed the new Dirac Live 2 on my NAD avr and the new measurements have improved the sound quite a bit I think. It’s easy to switch back and forth between the old and new profiles, and the vocals are noticeably more lifelike in acoustic tracks now compared to before, which I was perfectly happy with before. I feel like the ULF has been neutered below 20hz, so there is still some tweaking that needs to be done to get the bass just right. When I get some more time, like this weekend if we get iced in, I’ll pull the mic back out and rerun bass eq for the minidsp which I never did after adding all the insulation to my front wall.
Also, also, also:
Bill’s theater that I’ve been building is just weeks away from carpet, chairs, and gear. I’ve been nagging him to put up a build thread, so maybe since I’m publicly shaming him here...
