    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...
  3. High Dynamic Range (HDR) & Wide Color Gamut (WCG)
    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...

    My AVR is a 9.2-channel AVR and I am considering upgrading my 7.1 system to either 5.1.4 or to 7.1.2.

    I have a Yamaha amp and Panasonic TV, connected to a perm on-laptop (HTPC) via HDMI. About half the time, I turn it on, Windows 10 is showing the sound as disabled (red X) as if the device has dropped off.
