  1. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    I see what you did there ^
  2. The Punisher - Netflix Marvel Series

    So apparently this was delayed because of the Vegas shooting.
  3. Time To Build A New PC

    Oh yeah I've seen that one. You may want to look at this one too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RbKb38rIvE&list=PL1fn6oC5ndU-S8BQkshYPO_yIQyT1yctU&index=2 You don't really need the switch or the cloud-key though. Ubiquiti hardware won't have a built in web-server for configuration like most consumer router/AP do, which is what the cloud-key provides for you - an ip accessible device that has the controller software running on it. So it's not really necessary, you can just install the software on your laptop (or even a raspberry pi). The switch is not necessary as the AP comes with a PoE injector included.
  4. Apparently they will fix MCC for Xbox one X https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/odds-ends
  5. Time To Build A New PC

    For those prices I would rather do Ubiquiti hardware.. https://store.ubnt.com/collections/wireless/products/unifi-ac-hd https://www.ubnt.com/unifi-routing/usg/ http://amzn.to/2zi4J63 http://amzn.to/2zhZuTY No experience with the AC-88U, But I had an ASUS RT-N65U which was crap... it couldn't sustain the wireless client loads, had to reboot very often. I currently use an Archer C8 that by contrast has been rock solid on the latest firmware. Before I wired up the house, it supported about 30-40 wireless clients, but I never stressed it with the requirements above. Maybe had to reboot once a month or so. The Archer c8 has definitely been way more stable after I dropped 20 ethernet lines this year in my house to a 24-port switch (I've never had to reboot it so far) for connections to smart TVs, consoles, desktops basically everything that does heavy downloading/streaming. You can't beat the reliability of hardwired connections I now have about 10 wireless devices but mostly lighter loads (NESTs, sprinkler controllers, IPADs, iphones). I do know though I'll switch to Ubiquiti h/w once I get 1Gbit fiber installed.
  6. More than a year later... h.265 and VP9 are both coexisting... VP9 basically because youtube...h.265 everywhere else. But AV1 is in development (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AOMedia_Video_1), an evolution of VP9, combined with some tools from Mozilla's Daala and Cisco Thor codecs. The alliance includes: Amazon, Cisco, Google, Intel, Microsoft, Mozilla, Netflix Youtube will transition into AV1 for the highest resolutions (I'm assuming 4K) 6 months after the bitstream syntax is finalized. The reference implementation: https://aomedia.googlesource.com/aom http://www.streamingmedia.com/Articles/Editorial/-111497.aspx
  7. I updated my One S. Way way better. I no longer hate the UI. Navigation is more natural, the common stuff just requiring pressing A, instead of before where you would have to use the stick or directional pad to highlight an element then pressing A to act on it.
  8. 4K for life......for now.

    Yes that’s what I’ve been using. Works just fine for me. The XBox UI is not a factor since you insert the disc, disc begins playing. But just in case I have the Blu-ray player pinned.
  9. Knack 2 is great, But I chose the 60fps over resolution. Much more fluid that way...
  10. With the New Nintendo Switch XL 2D of course.
  11. Blu-Ray General Discussion Part 3

    No UHD yet? I've been holding on rewatching the thing hoping for a 4K disc....
  12. It would be funny it was just a direct copy of their stream onto disc
  13. yeah I think so. You can always just skip connecting them to the internet.
