  2. 3D Tech Talk
    I recently upgraded my projector to one that can play back 3d Blu-ray so decided to buy a few 3d movies, surprisingly, I found that I already had a couple in my collection. Anyway, I have a 4K disk player that fortunately can play back 3d Blu-rays so I'm able to watch them that way. BUT, i'd...

    Hi all, I generally watch movies as a 4k .mkv remux files through my windows 10 PC using plex and the PC is plugged into my AVR. I know with this setup I'm losing DV, but am I also losing all HDR?

    Hey! FYI I'm not the most tech savvy with this kinda stuff but have recently been researching like mad (including the forums on here) so I think I have gained a slight understanding of how the basics work.

    Hi there, Is there is a way to Chromecast to Marantz NR1710 from Android phone or Windows 10 PC? I can only see the Airplay feature. I'm try to cast from PLEX (Android phone or Windows 10 PC) / YouTube to Marantz NR1710.

    Hi all, before I ask my question, let me tell you about my setup. I have the Denon 3400 AVR with an emotiva amp. I have a windows 10 PC plugged into the AVR using an HDMI cable to watch movies using remux .mkv 4k files on plex. I also have an optical audio cable from the TV to the AVR for the...
  7. Home Theater Computers
    I'm in Australia and I have a Windows 7 PC running WMC but the latter is starting to show its age with inability to display some video file types (for which I use VLC externally) and so I want to replace it with "something" and I am open to either a software or hardware solution or a mix...
  8. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    Hey guys, I have been researching about Zappiti for some time and I have realized how capable it is. However, there are several versions that so confusing, especially to newbies. I have narrowed down my options to Zappiti Mini 4K HDR. My question is, since Zappiti runs on Android, has anyone...
  9. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Hi all, I'm watching my movies by playing 4k remux files on my windows 10 PC and using Plex. My PC is connected to my Denon AVR which is powering my 7.1 speakers. What sounds better: 1) enabling the passthrough settings in Plex and letting my AVR do the decoding or 2) disabling the...

  11. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I have a home theater setup (5.2.4) at home. I use Power Sound Audio speakers/subs and, for the most part, they sound incredible. Every once in a while I hear a pop or crackle when watching a youtube video or the bass hits a bit too hard and causes vibrations in my light fixtures (I need to...
  12. Xbox Area
    Does Xbox one X support true HD for regular movie playback (not Blu ray)? I was playing some content through Plex and the true HD is converted to PCM since I have it configured to uncompressed 5.1 in Xbox settings. Once I modified to the bitstream, I have 3 options to pick, DTS or Dolby Digital...
  13. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Finally, after years and years, I bought a new TV. 2019 TCL 6 Series. I have a collection of media I'd like to direct play to the TV to enable HDR/Dolby. I've learned that to enable HDR/Dolby I also need the correct audio processing or else my Plex media server will begin transcoding...
  14. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Since the H9F just hit the streets this month, and is getting some good reviews I thought I would start a official owners thread. This is high on my black Friday shopping list for a gaming TV :D

    Hi all, I’m running the plex media server on an old Windows 10 machine plugged into my AVR in my basement. 4k movies are always buffering. but when I play these same movies on kodi or media player classic, its silky smooth. so I installed the Plex Media player and when I use that, the video is...
  16. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    Wondering if anyone has found a photo-centric solution for serving media from a networked pc, to screens around the house?  I currently use Plex running on the Windows 10 where all my photos are stored, with Apple TV 4th Gen. running the Plex app attached to various TV's to display the photos. ...
  17. HTPC - Mac Chat
    I have EyeTV running on my Mac Mini with 2 HDHomeRun Duals, and things are working properly. I see that Plex has a product that should do the same things. I also see that I would pay $120 for a "lifetime" sub. Does Plex have more going for it than what I'm used to with EyeTV? Thanks in advance!
  18. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    Im a heavy user of plex, and i find it increasingly difficult to watch movies on my Vizio M60-C3. I have a NAS setup with a collection of movies varying in size, anywhere from 3gb to 30gb. The NAS is connected via Ethernet with a gigabit connection locally. Initially, I had my tv connected...
  19. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    After lots or research I decided to use unRAID and PLEX for my first real dedicated media server build. The server will also perform some backup functions. I have been messing around with the idea for a few years. Jon S helped me out a lot in the Ripping BluRays II thread, thank you (I went...
