  1. I've had this sitting in my Amazon Prime Video list to watch forever. Sounds like it's time to give it a shot.
  2. I started googling it again, and it seems like it has to do with the DV data being on multiple layers that are read at once. This can't be remuxed into a .mkv for example. You can still rip everything, but you can't use it unless you burn a disc I believe.
  3. I missed your reply on this the other day. If I remember correctly when I looked into it, it's something about the way the data streams or is transported. It's something technical about the actual process, not the lack of support. It didn't seem impossible, but the fact no one had figured it out yet was telling.

    Photography (hardware & technical discussion thread)

    I just bought a Manfrotto 190XPRO4 (not travel), but I was looking at tripods alot. They do have a level lock carbon fiber version of the BeFree , and I swear I saw this on another store where the BeFrees had a "V1" and "V2". I thought the V1's looked better and saw some people didn't like the new twist lock (M2?) system on the V2's. A lot of this is me going off of memory and I may have this mixed up with another model.
  5. As soon as I got this I haven't had as much time to play lately and it got added to the pile. Be curious to see what anyone here thinks if they give it a shot for the first time.

    I'm really wanting to get a pair of Airpods, but not sure since they are likely to get refreshed soon. As far as I know, an actual redesign isn't likely until next year, but something with the charging case may change early this year? Anyone heard anything different?

    Drop a Ton Challenge 2010

    I hadn't posted in this thread much over time, I think mainly because there's a lot of runners in here. I gave running a shot a few years ago, one of the first things I did was couch to 5k to get ready for a local event. It's fine, but it's just not my choice of exercise at all. I've always been drawn to weight lifting in some way, not only for the actual process of lifting, progression, etc, but also just looking better and the aesthetic you can get by putting some muscle on. Celebrities getting in shape for roles for movies inspire me. I remember examples like when Ryan Reynolds got in shape for Blade and wondering "how I could do that"? I've fucked around with all of this for a while, but in the last couple of years I've been satisfied with my progress and hit some goals for myself. I think the biggest difference is I hired a trainer I'd followed online for a long time, and just having someone looking over my shoulder helped my confidence that I was "doing it right" where I wasn't second guessing everything. I also think I have much better idea of what I can handle calorically and basically figuring out food. Here are some progress pictures. The first is a graph of my most recent cut I mentioned in the quote above. The second is a before picture from several years ago right before I got into lifting. I'd lifted sporadically in the past, but been away from it enough there's nothing to show for it in that pic. Third is where I was on my own in 2016. All of the after pics are around Thanksgiving last year. https://www.smugmug.com/gallery/n-5JzwpN/ Maybe we can get some more weight lifters up in here. I'm on a caloric surplus right now so I've lost some of that leanness, but the goal is to put more muscle on. I will probably do a caloric deficit again mid March. Right now I am enjoying the extra food. Cereal seems to be my go to add-on.🥣

    This eGPU enclosure looks nice: https://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/HELIOSFX650/
  9. I couldn't get into Bloodborne either, and I was looking for a challenge. I don't really like the aesthetic that much, and I just couldn't get into the gameplay. I made it to the first boss and gave him a few tries, and just found myself playing other things.
  10. Dolby Vision doesn’t work if you rip your media for playback on a media server, but HDR10 does. Any idea if HDR10+ is any different from it predecessor in that regard?
  11. I'm glad you started the thread. I've been a little out of the loop, but this thread is still the only mention of it I've organically run into. I hope it can get more attention.

    Quoting myself since it was I should have looked myself , but looks like DC dropped all and most major Marvels do include a code.

    Cool, I hadn't bought anything physical in quite a while and was wondering what was the best place. What publishers include the digital code now?
