It's got to be 4 separate feeds. Each one of those display quadrants has to be fed by a different computer or console. And that's how many HDMI inputs the Samsung media box has.

How do you multiplex sound, or should every player have their own headphones?

no magic happening there - it's just a single HDMI feed from the xbox. the xbox does the screen split for multi-player mode.

Talking

I have just now finally been revived. They had to charge the paddles to 300 before it took. Pardon my French but JFCHFSOMFG. The internet is a terrible (or perfect?) means of conveying the rigidity of my boner, but, man oh man oh man. And those are 4 lucky fellas playing the game, that's for sure.

I am weirdly intrigued by this. Tell us more.

Also, please be my friend.

Since he is already occupying one input for the receiver/roku input, and he is planning on adding a gaming PC, this could be an x-box 4 play mode.

That's what I figured. But is it possible to display 4 inputs at once? (I don't know anything about what drives this display)

I was under the impression the Samsung OneConnect box was able to tile the display across multiple inputs, which would be great for this application since each quadrant has approx. 3K resolution.

yep, it's got multiple HDMI inputs on the box. i haven't played with it yet, so i'm not sure how to make everything work. i don't think there is a manual...

the problem with doing multiple displays is that the audio would kind of a mess if the media you were display had audio. the samsung box does have an optical out for audio, but i don't know if it's a mux of the inputs or if you have to assign it to one particular source input.

right now i just have one hdmi input from my integra receiver, and the integra handles all the audio, so the samsung box is just handling whatever source the integra gives it to display.

You can use headsets on PS4/XBox controllers. The consoles send each a dedicated sound feed. That way, each player has the sound they are supposed to be getting. Something to try out.

You could run multiple consoles (XBox One, PS4, etc.) to a single Samsung input going through an HDfury with auto-switching. And then have one set of consoles go through the Integra to feed the surround sound system for when you play solo or share a screen.

By all means, please continue flexing. I consider this my quarantine workout.

Prefetch - thanks again for your trailblazing posts and pictures -

Can I ask you for your experiences with your monster Wall please in different lighting conditions here?

Since it's such a capable & bright display for use in all lighting conditions...

What's it like watching a movie in darkness vs in natural daytime light?

Can it / does it adjust its brightness for nighttime vs day time?

How does it perform in complete darkness / at very low light levels? Any signs of background light at all?

Thanks for your views on this - happy watching!

in full daylight in a room with a ton of huge windows it's perfectly watchable. obviously it looks better with the shades down, and it looks best at night - but watching something in the daytime is no problem at all. we just watched "prince of egypt" this afternoon and it looked great.

i believe it does have some kind of auto-light detection brightness adjustment thing. i remember the samsung guys talking about it, but i haven't messed with it and haven't notice any auto-magic thing that it does. i'll have to check that out.

in complete darkness the blacks are perfect - i have not seen any signs of background light at all.

i'm about 5 days in and i've been using it everyday, multiple times per day (including night viewing) and it's awesome and i've had zero problems with it and i can't detect any flaws. i can't think of anything about it that i would want to improve. the biggest thing that blows my mind is the auto upscaling it does with 1080p movies - it's like freaking magic - it looks amazing.

Ahh that's fabulous to read Prefetch thank you for the insight into living with this new technology.

One day soon could you kindly share some more details (and ideally some photos) of your power lift system?

Plus we'd all love to see more photos of The Wall, both on and off please
