    I would like to know if anyone that has Xfinity, and Netflix (purchased separately, not through Xfinity) is getting Dolby Atmos, not DD+, and seeing the Dolby Atmos logo on the movie or series "choice" screen. I will add that I have the newest Xfinity box that is supposed to pass Dolby Atmos...

    I bought an NAD T778. I have a Sony XBR-75Z9F 75" HD TV, and a Sony UBP-X800 4k DVD player. The sound and DVD player seem to work great, and the TV works great as well. However, the cable box continually decides not to engage with the T778 - it will work for some time and then spontaneously...

    I have an early Hauppauge video capture device. It has worked very nicely to extract individual performances from our favorite reality shows, "so you think you can dance" and "the voice". As I understand it, there is nothing illegal about this if I don't sell it, upload it, or give it away. This...
