  1. My Atmos Experience

    When putting the HT in our new house together, I wired for 7.2.6 but am only using 5.1.4 at the moment. I'll need a new AVR (and, of course, additional speakers) to go all that further than where I am now. (I could do 7.1.4 with an external amp.) ...and since I spent more than I wanted to last year on a new AVR, it'll be a long while before that happens.

    Oh! I didn't know that lossy Atmos was a thing. I learned something new today!

    My first Coco disc flaked out in the middle, so I picked up where I left off on Vudu. Weirdly, the Atmos audio on that streamed version didn't require me to crank up the volume anywhere near as much as I had to on the UHD BD. Am I nuts, or is there really a difference? Did the mucked dynamic range thing start with Age of Ultron?
  4. Wild World, City Folk, and New Leaf all had November release dates (at least in Japan).

    The LG UP970 got its Dolby Vision firmware update. Maybe it'll keep it this time!
  6. Games Finished in 2018

    Our first ever 1000/1000 on an Xbox game (including the 360)...! It was for Snoopy's Grand Adventure. My wife did pretty much all of the heavy lifting (this was one of my Christmas gifts to her, after all), although I helped out as Woodstock a bunch, and I did get the achievement that requires defeating the first boss without getting hit. I haven't played a game of my own in a month and a half, thanks to the move, but I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things soon. Still haven't touched the rest of what I got for my birthday and Christmas: both South Park games, Wolfenstein II, and Assassin's Creed: Origins.

    What are my options as far as a Dolby Vision-capable player goes? My TV and receiver both support DV, but it looks like Oppo is the only manufacturer whose UHD BD players support DV out of the box right now, and I'm not sure a $559+ player is in the cards for me at the moment. I know some players were shown off at CES -- even then occasionally with the "Dolby Vision firmware coming later!" caveat -- but I haven't had the easiest time finding a list, prices, availability (especially availability of Dolby Vision), etc. Any suggestions?

    It won't be an exclusive for long, although it did take Léon five months, so presumably it'll be something in that same ballpark for A Few Good Men and Groundhog Day.

    Thanks! Because I'm dumb, I neglected to bring the remotes to the receiver and TV with me, so I haven't actually heard what this rig sounds like yet, but I will tomorrow morning. Um, hopefully everything works! ETA - it does.

    That's great to hear. I bought my wife The Peanuts Movie as well as the Holiday Collection on UHD BD as part of a Peanuts-centric Christmas. (In turn, she had Captain Underpants on UHD BD waiting for me under the Christmas tree.) I have a huge stack of discs waiting for me, and I can't wait to tear into them all. We closed on our new house last week, and we had the builder wire for Atmos (which was an ordeal, seeing as how their contractors had no idea what Atmos was, and it took several tries to get them to put the speakers where I wanted 'em, even though I gave 'em a diagram!). Anyway, because they clearly didn't know what they were doing and I wasn't allowed to bring in a specialist during construction, I just stopped at wiring, and I'm having a dedicated home theater company coming over tomorrow to finish the job. I'm unbelievably excited. Also, I've never experienced Atmos, so this'll be a whole new thing for me.
  13. Knack 2 - Announced at PSx (PS4)

    I sincerely, unironically have been having a blast with this game. I'm sure I've sunk far more hours into it than Super Mario Odyssey, and I've even been addicted enough to seek out a platinum trophy, something I rarely do. (It's only my third platinum of the year, following Gravity Rush 2 and Horizon: Zero Dawn.)

    The first season isn't in HDR on Netflix, so I'm not sure why he's so aghast that the home video release isn't either.

    Frequently, although Amazon will often put those behind lightning deals rather than have them available for days as Best Buy does.
