    Hello all! I’m trying to simplify my life by keeping the HDR toggle in Windows always on, and expect one day to have a PS5 that’s always set to HDR. My problem is doing this in Windows results in slight to moderate distortions that mess with SDR content. This is most shown by high saturated...

    I'm looking for a new NVR. Current is ICRealTime which I'll stay far away from. Quite poor UI, poor support for IOS, MacOS and TVOS. On the positive side it's worked consistently for 7 years. One key feature I'm looking for in either the NVR or separately is to be able to monitor multiple...
