    The Punisher - Netflix Marvel Series

    Why do I feel like there was already a Punisher season 2?
  2. Vizio is updating the 2017, 2018 and 2019 models with Airplay 2 support. That’s great news for me as I own a couple of their sets.
  3. You’ll see micro LED abbreviated as uLED but should really be μLED. μ standing for lowercase Mu from the Greek alphabet the usual abbreviation for micro in scientific and engineering literature. And now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
  4. I can’t find much info on the uled stuff yet. Are they using quantum dots as color filters? If they can make uled cheaper than OLED they’ll have a hit on their hands. And affordable uLED 120” wall (say less than $4k) would start to erode the projector business.
  5. Looks like Vizio TVs are getting AirPlay 2 support as well. So I guess apple finally is opening up.

    The kicker is it ain’t worth all that trouble.
  7. Looks like the 2019 LG OLEDs will have 2.1 HDMI https://www.engadget.com/2019/01/02/lg-oled-lcd-8k-hdmi-2-1-ces-2019/

    Films - Watched and thoughts 2018

    BirdBox - liked the Last of Us/Dawn of the dead remake intro - started strong. Then they wanted me to accept the silly medusa premise - I bit for a bit- until the camera experiment - and it lost me completely after that. Because the premise didn't grab me it didn't feel any suspense. Nothing interesting happened with the children. They glossed over how they managed to survive 5 years - oh well - a good effort but fell flat for me.

    Bandersnatch - I guess I wanted something like the white x-mas special. I understood what they were going for but left me unsatisfied. I wouldn't recommend it.

    I read that it's a poor man's Quiet Place? Is that accurate?

    The LG OLED thread

    A few of us own LG OLED sets now so I thought to leave the "The official TV and Display Tech thread" alone and post in a dedicated thread instead. For the record I now own an OLEDB657A I just flashed the latest firmware 4.70.76 http://www.avsforum.com/forum/40-oled-technology-flat-panels-general/2963882-2017-lg-oled-latest-firmware-04-70-76-released.html I encountered a weird bug with audio decoding on the apps, where it randomly started to only decode the left and right channel and nothing else. It didn't go away until I unplugged the set and restarted it. Is it still a fact that I have to turn dynamic contrast to high in Game mode? It certainly seems that way. However HDTVTest comments on the videos below mention it only does normal contrast expansion not the dynamic eotf mapping of the cinema modes. Yes I'm currently using mostly these settings: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/c7-oled/settings But I just noticed these too: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/b7-b7a-oled/settings I'm a bit confused on what to set TruMotion to: The B7 and C7 reviews claims that for judder free 24p source playback, you need to set TrueMotion to User and put the sliders at 0. Yet the C7 settings page above says to just set it to off. I need some 24p horizontal panning patterns here Any other general knowledge about these sets? I'm starting to go over HDTVTest videos on the set:

    Angry Video Game Nerd Reviews

    Ha ha, That was great.
  15. Now that I work for Amazon I can say management takes their 1-star reviews pretty seriously - so if you want to encourage change I would go that way.
  16. Randy Pitchford is the only closest one since he and his team made the expansions but none from the original valve teams.
  17. It sucks Valve didn't even answer noclip's calls... Damn. Documentary is good for what it is - the influence of Half-life etc... but without the actual creators involved in Half-life it seemed to lack that something his other documentaries have.
  18. Boooo! The controls just become goo for me after playing a bunch at 60fps and switching to 4k. Team framerate here

    He probably thought all of them were wacky movies, shaking his judging compass.
