  2. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    I recently picked up a Optoma UHD50 and Pioneer SC-LX502, and for 4K content, an Apple TV 4K. Of course, since YouTube uses a codec that Apple won't support (or maybe Google won't use a more common codec, I blame both of them), I need something for YouTube. I tried a Roku Streaming Stick+ and...
  3. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I received my new and brilliant Sony XBR75X940E last night and wanted to set it up with my existing Sony HTCT Soundbar and MDR700's. I don't want to invest in a new sound system just yet. SO, I found a well reviewed ViewHD audio splitter that does HDMI passthrough, as well as HDR10 and Dolby...
  4. CD Players & Dedicated Music Transports
    Hi All, Have just got my HT setup at home but looking to improve things on the audio front because my current Chromcast 2 only outputs 44khz audio which is a waste since I'm using Tidal. No wonder I'm considering something convenient like the newer chromecasts or really look for a streamer. The...

  6. HDTV Recorders
    I'd like to add a small UPS just for a Tivo and Apple TV (and/or possibly a Roku). I don't care about keeping things running for longer than a few minutes. Last summer an unprotected DVR and garage opener died in an electrical storm, so I'm just trying to avoid repeating that loss. What do...
  7. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    I have an iPad running iOS 9.x and the Amazon video app. The amazon video app does not support Chromecast. But it does allow video to be streamed on AppleTv (gen3).

  10. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    I got an Apple TV yesterday and was pleased to see that the CEC support on HDMI 2 works. While it doesn't seem to turn the TV on (not sure if it's supposed to) it definitely switches the input to the Apple TV automatically when I hit the home button on the Apple remote. I was also happy that...
  11. Home A/V Distribution
    The new (late 2015) AppleTV looks great - I was planning to install a new TV flush on a wall with an AppleTV mounted behind the TV. However the new AppleTV is a lot thicker - concerned that the TV will now be too far off the wall. Does anyone have any suggestions on best ways to hide away the...
