  1. I'll watch it, and although I'm an AR fan, 4:3 just doesn't cut it. I prefer so much the Nolan approach. Basically Home theater gear can't replicate the IMAX experience. Eg, the OOOH! factor with IMAX is that when you get the IMAX shots, it stays the same width but opens vertically. So on a 16:9 setup Nolan's stuff works great. But 4:3 you are suddenly faced with a smaller image and it just makes it rubbish. And if you have a scope setup, try explaining to someone why they should be impressed when half of the image disappears if you can people fly handle a 2.35: 1 to 16:9 projecto
  2. Nice! I'm eager to hear more! Every other one though I've looked into, even the ones with bluetooth, the bluetooth was limited (Eg you couldn't control an Apple TV bluetooth, just IR - so no keyboard, no power off). Some of the other high end ones too were just too hard to even figure out what you needed - like the MX 990 and the Control4. And anything requiring paying someone to set it up, I'm just not interested (and amusingly enough - that exactly was the last Harmony released - and that was I imagine a very silly waste of money and time for them, putting them in a n
  3. Yes, I'm no fan of the touchscreen. I guess though with the harmony, worst case, so long as the buttons still work, you can use the smartphone app to start the activity, and then use the buttons. It'd be nice if there were decent alternatives to the Harmony. There really aren't though. I keep wondering if I should buy a spare
  4. Yes that one looks interesting. I was hoping given it had bluetooth it'd be able to control the Apple TV bluetooth like the Harmony can, but no luck. The documentation / help on hem scarce too. I haven't seen doco on how to setup activities etc
  5. If it can do what parent company a zapitti does re other features and external subs great. If it is an oppo clone, I'm less interested. Kind of over others just rehashing old tech rather than any actual progress. And if region unlock isn't available, no interest...
  6. I wish all AVR makers AND sub makers at least had the decency to put xlr for subwoofers.
  7. Gee. That is a surprise. And looking at imdb it was a few weeks ago. And I didn't see anything on imdb news, which I look at daily. I never saw the docs. I only know him from the fiction movies. Probably from Gorky Park.. I actually liked that recent "B" one he did with Noomi Roopace and Orlando Bloom.
  8. OK, checked White Tiger is in Russian, burnt in amber subs
  9. I posted the UPC and the online store name. Should be able to find given that with google. I'm just not sure if I'm allowed to post detailed links. No idea,on subtitles. I haven't watched it. There is no set stream. But it is an Australian disc so I guess burnt in subs. Or ugh a dub. I'll check in the morning when I'm in the HT
  10. Well, I finally snagged a copy. It does exist. DTS-HD MA 5.1. Got it for $5 at CEX shipped. UPC is 9338176011584 - I set up an alert, and blow me down it finally popped up/.
  11. I saw Captain Marvel 3d. Hoo boy, especially with the IMAX, I don't think I'll be watching the UHD again.
  12. Ah geez are we related? I even have that Moffat Cobra... I have a 7.1.4 setup, keft q900s front and side, 650 center, and my rears are Q300s on angled brackets slightly above ear level (or ear level if I was 8" taller...)- sort of so they aren't as muffled by the rear of the couch. My 4 uppers are all mounted to the ceiling itself (brackets bolted to the joists), and are q300s on angled directed brackets aimed at main listener position. Works very well.
  13. I appreciate I'm anomalous, given I'm an av lover and have not seen a movie in cinemas since Revenge of the Sith, and prefer disc based media and home at equipment. And I don't have any interest in standing in line waiting and group experience. Especially these days when xxxxing people would be constantly lighting screens on mobiles... But I kind of hoped 2020 would be the death knell of the anachronism of this whole theatrical release rubbish. I mean talks of bailing out theaters is as stupid as pumping money into horse drawn carriage makers when automobiles started taking control.
  14. Yeah I finally cancelled mine. I mainly watch disc, but had kept it for a couple of shows, never went 4k as when I was ready to do it and had time, the covid degredation happened, so never bothered). Anyhow the only reason I kept it was my wife watched it. But whenever I saw her on the tv she'd be wathing stupid videos on youtube. I watch more on prime. And just one price too including 4k.
