  1. Item: Seiki SE39UY04 4k UHD 39" TV/Monitor Location: Balwyn, Vic Price: $175 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: This tv/monitor is an early iteration of 4k (no HDR). It supports 4k at 30hz only. It also does 124hz at 1080p so great as a large gaming monitor with low input latency. It's an 'in between' size so if you've got a medium room it will likely work well for you. Local Pickup only.

  2. Look out, Oppo has something planned for the year end http://www.phileweb.com/sp/news/d-av/201605/06/38759.html
  3. There is lots of sites with 4K content in many shapes or forms but not many allow you to look at entire list in user friendly manner so I decided to create our own list with complete collection available within 1 page, I plan to update it once a week (if time allow) but if someone is willing to help from mods (due to post update restrictions) I would definitely appreciate it... All artworks (pictures) are taken from www.blu-ray.com and are hyperlinked, there are other sites I could take it from but BR seems to be most updated, I only took 1 artwork per title even if there might be more from each, if you are unsure about the title name from the picture just hoover with your mouse over it and it'll pop up or just click on it and it'll open directly on blu-ray.com site Whole list is in alphabetical order (sort of according to BR page ) so if you can't find certain title please have a look under different name e.g. Jason Bourne might be under "B" but also under "J" as some of them where released under different name, same applies for prefixes e.g. "the" etc. I don't know what's the standard screen resolution these days so if you'd like to widen it with more artworks within one row just let me know and I will rebuild it... It took some time to build it and format it so hopefully it'll be helpful to those interested, enjoy # A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Z

  5. Just saw this new 4K UHD projector announced and available for sale, January 2018. Does anyone know if BENQ will be demoing this projector at the Melbourne Hifi show? Don't see any info about it on the BENQ website as yet.
  6. Item: EOI JVC X7000 projector Location: SE Melbourne Price: $3400 plus shipping (original retail $8,800) Item Condition: As new under 1000 hours Reason for selling: upgrading Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (buyer cost), direct debit Extra Info: Expressions of interest for JVCs X7000 projector in black. Under 3 years old but in as new condition, with low hours (under 1000 - the lamps are rated to 4500 hours so this one is still lot up its sleeve). And it has been treated meticulously, fully updated with all firmware, fully setup and autocal calibrated. It is available with all box and accessories as would buy new from the shop. Being sold here at pretty sharp price I believe vs the $8,800 original retail and still considerable saving over even the current new price now if can get hold of one. more info from the JVC au site, http://au.jvc.com/projectors/home_cinema/dla_x7000b/ This is an expression of interest as considering one of the new projectors. To secure this projector will require a $200 deposit and I will only be able to provide it when the new projector arrives in late December early Jan. Person buying is welcome to come see in action and rest assured it will be packed away to not exceed the 1000 hours this is being advertised at. If unsure how this will work, get in touch as I have done this before with previous projector (3 years ago) and that sale went smoothly with very happy buyer. What this projector packs is ability to enjoy the new UHD 4k formats and come with full hdmi chipset to take advantage. Plus High dynamic range (HDR) capability along with wide colour gamut (WCG) to take advantage of what these formats have to offer. I have spent considerable time and effort with the projector to fully setup so its a press of a button to select either blu-ray or uhd. It is fully autocal calibrated and nature of it is such that it calibrates the projector itself and will just need some dialling in to meet new owners setup. This projector itself is hugely popular and people like zombie, manni and Dave Vaughn (sound vision magazine) still run this series as really with some basics they not greatly different to newer series. The X7000 is hugely popular as they were a significant step up form the X5000 series in that this model like the model above in the x9000 brought better light engine with significant dynamic contrast of 1,200,000:1 or 120,000:1 native. They also brought the dual iris, full colour gamut higher output, ISF and THX certifications. The later releases of Xx500 and Xx900 brought some minor additions but most of these can be worked around as most people have been doing. So grab yourself a great bargain here over buying one of the newer models or anything really at the money that is not going to come remotely close to what this is capable off. Pictures: what will be getting (note I did peel off that ugly yellow sticker though ! ) some screen shots showing just how good this projector is ...note its even more awesome in person !
  7. A bit of background, I have owned a few projectors, a couple of epson LCD projectors over the years and then the last few years been very happy with a JVC X-35 projector. So Ultra UHD is on our door step ... of course as I am very enthusiastic about these things what should I do ? The obvious would be one of the new Sony 4K projectors...but then have seen the flagship sony 1100ES that retails at over $25k being humbled by my few generations old base model jvc. and even the cheapest 4K sony is some $15k !!!! way more than what I would want to spend and then to top off I find all the sony models in some way or the other dont fully support the new UHD format with either lacking HDR (high dynamic range) or lacking support for the DCI p3 wider gamut that the new format will support. And then I find out JVC has a new range...something that has been 2 years in the making.... http://cdn.jvc.eu/dla-x9000/index.html And unlike the Sony's it built for UHD, utilising a new 4K E-shift 4, and is HDR and wider gamut p3 DCI capable. But hey is it true 4k? The shift for jvcs has always been a 1080p panel that they shift really fast diagonaly to essentially upscale. However according to the jvc info the new 4k e-shift 4 is an evolution of this that takes a 4k signal splits into two frames diagonally and utilises a half pixel diagonal shift with the 1080p panel to create a 4k frame. Something JVC gives a brief explanation of, http://cdn.jvc.eu/dla-x9000/feature01.html Now I am pretty skeptical, though apparently a technology co developed by JVC and japans NHK engineers, that had them develop a 8k projector http://www.pmaresearch.com/pma-blogs/jvc-announces-8k-resolution-projector-with-e-shift-technology/ so a trickle down for 4k consumer projector cant be too much of a stretch hey ? Anyways 4k is beyond Imax and I have no intention of putting in a setup of greater scale than imax so not really chasing 4k. My interest is the other aspects of UHD with HDR and wider gamut and if I get any gains in resolution than what we have ...i'll happily take it with local pricing placing the base model X5000 at $6,160, mid range model X7000 at $8,800 and top model X9000 on $10,450 (not including 3D glasses..but fortunately I already have them from my previous JVC) So as it happens...before I know it ...it turns out I am the first person in the country ordering one of these JVCs ! I go for the piggy in the middle. since the base model uses the previous generation light engine, doesnt quite cover the p3 wide gamut and also quite a bit down on contrast vs the previous years models. And the top model is really only the mid range model with some hand picked parts......so the x7000 model it is for me And I am then one of the first in the world to be receiving one of these black boxes ... on my birthday ! and posting an unboxing...
  8. Hi Folks Until this week, I have resisted the move to UHD. But as JB-HiFi were selling thie UA60KU6000W TV for $1398 & The Good Guys were selling the UBD8500 for $298. I could no longer resist the challenge. Then I had to find content which was both UHD & HDR. found some Samsung demos but not HDR found some LG demos with HDR ( but called Dolby vision) while trying these demos I found the back-lighting and brightness set too high for my liking. does anyone have preferred settings for this model ? I set back-lighting down to 10 and brightness down to 40 for comfort. I left contrast at 100 and color, hue and tint at 50.
  9. Hey everyone, Kind of new to the whole UHD thing (but loving it so far) and am wanting to get feedback from those who have done it. I’ve read that you’re able to play UHD movies ordered from overseas and they’ll play here in Australia as the UHD discs are essentially region free. Is this true? Does anybody have any experience with having ordered UHDs from overseas (specifically America via Amazon etc) and can confirm it works? And has anybody had the opposite? Where they’ve ordered UHDs from overseas and they haven’t worked? I’m aware the extra regular blu-ray dis that comes with most releases probably won’t work - it’s the UHD stuff I’m after. Thanks in in advance for your help everyone! Appreciate it ?

  12. OPPO 205 UHD Universal player - a 2nd coming ? an end users perspective... Oppo has some history in universal players. I remember many years ago their first dvd universal players in the country with hdmi capability in the oppo 983. And then some years ago their first blu-ray universal with a decent dac stage and analog stage with the oppo 95 which even had balanced outputs. And now with the dawn of another new format in 4k uhd blu-ray.. we have the release of their universal UHD blu-ray player in the Oppo 205. And it is an interesting piece the 205 https://www.oppodigital.com.au/products/oppo-udp-205-4k-ultra-hd-blu-ray-player-black in that it does everything the 203 does... however like the 105 prior it adds a nice dac, very decent multi channel analog stage and true balanced very excellent 2ch analog output including XLR connectivity. Unlike the 105 though and with the 203 this player drops all forms of streaming apps and such. so in essence this is now a basic media player, can be used as a dac and plays every silvery disc under the sun including the new 4k uhd discs.. I’ve been reluctant to say too much about the 205 as some will remember the diabolical time I had with the 203 which I also bought on release, and especially once compared it to the pana 900 uhd player. So is the oppo 205 a 2nd coming for me in an oppo ? . Anyways, with some trepidation I decided to check out the 205 Unpacking and getting going Now I don't know if this is typical of how oppo packages the 205 ! but mine arrived with some serious packaging ! However harder it is to break into it, I still got it quickly in the rack and hooked up and going and this pleasing without hiccup even with out off box settings ! With a couple of more pics showing in the rack, this is one meaty looking unit ! very much like the front panel with its curves, with satin sheen of brushed aluminium and nice new buttons and display it certainly looks more upmarket than the matt finished 105 this replaces,. In price too the 205 retails for around abouts $2k which is about what the 105 did as well so Oppo have done well to bring this player out for the price they have. Time to check settings in the player and there are only 3 settings I changed from out box. -Have made sure the audio is set to bitstream rather than auto as auto can give some strange results at times - Made sure that dynamic range control is set to OFF rather than auto as at no time do I want any range control kicking in to limit the audio experience. -Lastly have made sure HDMI CEC control is off which really is worth making sure as can cause some rather strange things occurring at times otherwise. Time to check a few discs... first up Mocheeba's Brixton live concert DVD, Some might probably wonder why I test a DVD ? well I still have quite a few, many concert DVDs, also many films (many foreign language) and where most have never been released on another format. And does very well with DVD I would suggest. And thats good to see as that as historically this been a strength for oppo going back many years with the players released. Next up on Blu-ray Mr and MRs smith which is a bit of a favourite for me as an audio video treat, with a bit of a busy scene and bit closer up shot with details, the oppo is doing pretty well for details, richness of colours and skin tones etc. and then on UHD blu-ray Billy Lynn Half time walk, and great to see a picture come up in loading, as this one is made in 4k high frame rate 60hz and good see coming through as intended, and a particular challenge for players, systems and cables so good vindication that all working as should Region Mod with some cursory checks done with various disc formats and with player working as should, I decided time to pull the player out the rack and install the region free kit. Why not install in the first place you ask ? Well I wanted to make sure the player works across a few disc formats before going to the trouble of installing the kit. The kit I am using is the blu-ray mod one from Gattiweb, who is local to me so easy enough to procure http://www.gattiweb.com/bluraymod.html and something i got originally for the 203 and fortunately also works with the 205 player now installation is not quite as straight forward as for the 203.... at the time I bought the 205, gatti didnt have instructions posted for installation but fortunately for some he does now... regardless sans instructions, I decided to give things a go. and gave me an opportunity to get up close and personal with the innards.... and remove the 2ch analog board, and the multi channel analog audio board, and notice the good quality Elna audio grade caps used through out. will note some even glued in... and the audio purposed analog power supplier, though I also noticed a cover which I thought to remove and guess what there is also a switch mode power supply i see under the casing ! anyways I plug the region mod in and re assemble things. I can tell you this much I have NEVER had to remove SO many screws to ever do something like this before. And something quite frankly I wouldn't suggest anyone attempt unless technically inclined. Great that gatti has instructions to actual install these days but if I were you i would take up his service to also install for you. which he is generally quite reasonable for. Alternatively consider the JVB digital external mod, http://www.jvbdigital.nl/jvb.asp?cur=2&level=modifications&page=title&title=1285 this just plugs in the back port on the machine. I personally didnt want anything hanging off the machine but if want to save yourself a lot of bother this external kit might be for you. In anycase testing the region mod i found it to work pretty well and exactly as per the Gatti provided operating instructions with region selection for blu-ray via key sequence on the remote. and the mod making the blu-ray region selectable UHD blu-ray itself is region free by nature in discs we buy so of course the mod is not needed for playing any of the discs. Region free for DVD is important for me as have quite a few overseas sourced discs over the years e.g. foreign films, concerts movies (not related in our region) etc that its handy to be able to just pop in the player and hit play not worrying about region restrictions. Similarly with blu-ray often I've purchased from overseas where discs are locked to those regions and even more so these days where buying a 4K UHD from over seas and it comes with a blu-ray disc also packaged in that happens to be region locked. Pleased to have this capability to play the various discs I have. So what is it like in use ? part 2 awaits ....
  13. Item: Oppo UDP203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Location: 64 Burns Bay Road, Lane Cove Price: $525 (RRP $950) Item Condition: Excellent (As new) Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, Credit Cards, Bank Transfer Extra Info: We have a current model Oppo UDP203 in carton, used but presents as new From Oppo's website: "The OPPO UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player provides an unmatched A/V experience to home theater enthusiasts. Drawing from over a decade’s worth of experience in advanced imaging processing technology and high fidelity audio performance, the UDP-203 is the ideal source to complete the ultimate home theater and sound room. " Other notable features... Advanced Image Processing Technology With over a decade of experience developing high-end DVD and Blu-ray players, OPPO has once again teamed with MediaTek to produce and manufacture a specialized 4K UHD Blu-ray decoder SoC OP8591, which offers the most advanced image decoding and processing technology available for UHD Blu-ray,Blu-ray,DVD and user generated media formats. High Quality Parts The UDP-203 features a premium 32-bit DAC AKM4458, which is an 8-channel DAC with support for formats such as 192 kHz/32-bit PCM and multi-channel DSD64/128.

Support for decoding the HEVC, H.264, VP9 4K, and Hi10P video codecs, providing increased compatibility with user generated media. HDR and HDR to SDR Conversion One of the more exciting elements of the new 4K UHD format is the inclusion of high-dynamic range (HDR) video and an expanded color range, allowing for more natural and true-to-life colors. The UDP-203 supports the HDR10 format, and it is also capable of providing an accurate conversion from HDR to SDR for older displays. The UDP-203 also supports Dolby Vision. Lossless High-resolution Audio Audio format support has been expanded to multi-channel DSD64/128, as well as 192kHz/24-bit PCM used in high-resolution lossless formats such AIFF, ALAC, APE, FLAC and WAV. Support for the Latest Surround Formats In addition to supporting the Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio surround formats, the UDP-203 supports bitstreaming the latest object-based surround formats, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. These new formats add overhead sound effects to create a greater impression of 3D-dimensionality. 7.1-Channel Analogue Output To ensure compatibility with older amplifiers, pre-amps, and receivers that do not support HDMI, the UDP-203 retains a 7.1 multi-channel analog output section, which delivers an incredible sound stage and an immersive surround experience. High Quality Metal Construction UDP-203 features a brushed aluminum front panel, exquisite steel cover, and a metal chassis on it body, which all ensure that the player inherits the excellent workmanship of it previous generations. The classic design and solid metal construction fit perfectly well with its outstanding performance. Pictures:

  17. Item: BLADE RUNNER IN 4K UHD FORMAT Location: SYDNEY Price: $15 INCL FREE POSTAGE WITHIN AUSTRALIA Item Condition: NEAR NEW. PURCAHSED AND WATCHED ONCE Reason for selling: WATCHED THE MOVIE Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: As we've now covered Blade Runner The Final Cut on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray with HDR10, it's now time to take a look at the UHD with Dolby Vision presentation from VUDU. As VUDU keeps getting these Dolby Vision presentations with releases from Universal Studios and Warner Bros., I dearly wish that the actual physical 4K UHD Blu-ray discs would be given the Dolby Vision treatment. From the first opening frames of the dystopian Los Angeles of 2019, it's clear to see the subtleties Dolby Vision has to offer. Those spires spewing flames into the air now enjoy a little extra contrast and black level adjustment to give them a stronger sense of foreground separation allowing that whole opening scene to sport an impressive sense of depth. As the camera moves closer to the Tyrell Corp. building and we zoom into Holden's interview room where he makes that fateful meeting with Leon, the model work looks all the more impressive as colors are bolder and black levels enjoy a more intricate presentation. When the film cuts to the first time we meet Harrison Ford's Deckard, the scene is awash with intricate neon lighting playing with sharp pulsing blues, reds, and greens and the visual punch is incredible. Likewise when Deckard is being briefed on the Nexus 6 Replicants he's to hunt down by Bryant, the scene isn't just a flat blue as it appeared on the 4K UHD Blu-ray, there's not just a bit more black level activity giving facial features just a little more dimension and presence I'm pleased to say that the Atmos audio mix is just as aggressive and impressive as the 4K UHD Blu-ray release. I really love the fully immersive surround effect this Atmos mix brings to the film. The previous release already had a fine surround track that was the tops for its day, but this Atmos track brings a lot of natural space and dimension to the film and allows you to appreciate the subtleties of the sound effects. I know I already gushed about it in my review for the disc release, but I can't help myself, it's just so damn beautiful to listen to combined with the gorgeous soundtrack Vangelis crafted. Even in the quietest scenes, there is plenty of subtle surround activity to maintain the immersive qualities. Again, this Atmos track is a knockout. Pictures:
  18. To the mods and members: Is it time we open up a forum for 4k, be it TVs or UHD players? Cheers
  19. I'm starting this dedicated thread as there has been some ad hoc discussion in other threads about NBN download speeds, with particular reference to accessing UHD (also called 4K). See in particular: The above threads provide some interesting details about the NBN. For people like me with a less than ideal knowledge of the terminology, here's a helpful list of terms used in relation to the NBN: https://www.finder.com.au/nbn-tracker/faq/list And here's a lengthier but in some ways less explanatory glossary: http://www.nbnco.com.au/utility/glossary-of-terms.html I note that Netflix recommend a minimum download speed of 25Mbps for accessing their UHD content. [However I've found in practice that you can get by with somewhat less. My inner northside Brisbane suburb doesn't have the NBN but we do have cable. The Optus HFC download speed sometimes dips down to as low as 17Mbs at my house but we find that 2160p Netflix Australia content will continue to stream, uninterrupted, at 2160p.] Fibre to the node One thing I've seen reported is that the way telephone copper cabling is routed is not necessarily as the most direct path from your house to the telephone exchange. So if you are in an older suburb serviced with the fibre to the node version of the NBN, and you see a fibre to the node cabinet close to your house, you cannot assume that your copper telephone line connects to it by the shortest route. (It might first head down another street and then circle back.) For example see the discussion in the Whirlpool thread: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/2464648 NOTE: I'd be happy for this thread to be used for related topics, such as whether people are even able to access 1080p streaming.

  21. Hi Everyone, Got the LG 55UH652T (Ultra HD TV) over the weekend and hooked it up on the wall. Setup was a breeze and the TV connected to the wifi instantly and the picture and sound are fantastic! For the last three days, while watching Youtube or Stan for a hour or so on the TV, the app stops responding and I get "you are not connected to the internet" error. I went to network settings to see the TV is still 'connected' to my wifi but the internet doesnt work for any app including Freeview. (I checked other devices like my ipad, iphone and the wifi is working fine). I click on it, it forgets my network. I click on it again and type the password and it connects instantly and the internet on starts working fine. The router is in the same room as the TV. Its approx. 4-5 meters away with no obstruction. I called LG support today from work and they asked me to 'reset the router'. I dont understand why I have to do that as the router is working fine! They also asked switch on the personal hotspot on the mobile phone and connect the TV to that to see if it gets disconnected (I am actually trying that now). This is crap as the TV is kind of using all my mobile data!! The support rep advised if the TV wifi doesn't disconnect then there is an issue with you internet network. If not then I can call them again to request for a technician to come in. I dont feel it is correct as i have never had issues with my Internet connection (i am with Telstra). The TV is 3 days old and I hate the fact that I have to go through this..... Any advice? Suggestions? Thanks
  22. https://www.avforums.com/news/sky-q-launching-ultra-hd-in-13th-august.12773?utm_campaign=July_2016_N... Sky UK are launching a 4K service showing EPL and movies. When is Foxtel going to offer customers some 4K UHD content?
  23. ...well in the US it would seem http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/211840-4k-ultra-blu-rays-will-land-on-store-shelves-by-christmas "If you’ve been hoping for a 4K Blu-ray upgrade to show off a swank new 4K television, Christmas 2015 should be the highlight of your year. According to Victor Matsuda, the Blu-ray Disc Association’s Global Promotions Committee Chair, 4K Blu-ray discs will be available for the holiday season, along with a bevy of new technologies and additional features. In addition to supporting 4K resolutions, the new discs include support for multiple types of high dynamic range (HDR) lighting, and a new “digital bridge” feature. The digital bridge feature is the physical media world’s method of offering the kind of digital convenience that streaming services sell standard. According to an interview with Matsuda, the digital bridge will offer two functions: copy and export. “Copy” permits a bit-for-bit copy to be stored on an authorized media drive, while “export” allows a file to be transferred to an authorized media device. It’s not clear which devices will be considered “authorized,” and whether or not the licensing terms will allow for transcoding into different formats for playback on specific devices. The fact that two different standards have been created for fundamentally similar practices suggests that “copy” may be for storing copies of a movie directly on an Ultra HD Blu-ray (that’s the official 4K name) while “export” could allow a film to be shifted to a tablet or smartphone. To buy or not to buyThe big question, of course, is whether or not Blu-ray UHD is going to find much of a market. When 720 and 1080p movies hit retail shelves nearly ten years ago, they were an immediate and obvious upgrade over DVDs, just as DVDs had been a huge upgrade over VHS. With 4K, the differences become more subtle, and the advantage depends more on the quality of the encode and the size of the TV you’ll be watching. If you have a 32-inch 1080p screen, you may not notice much improvement from 4K output. If you’re planning to install an 80-inch monstrosity, on the other hand, 4K will be a huge upgrade, even compared with upscaled 1080p. BD UHD will be popular with users who have limited bandwidth, low-speed connections, or who simply want to enjoy the absolute best-quality screen, but the standard may be slow to percolate, especially since video-on-demand services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime have likely sopped up at least some of the potential customer base. Studios who rush to market with the same handful of remastered titles that they previously offered on 1080p may find viewers less interested this time around. Upgrading from an old VHS to a 1080p version of a movie was worth calling it a “remastered” edition, but the 1080p to 4K jump is going to be much smaller as far as the objective final quality of the film. How Blu-ray and Netflix compare depends a great deal on the film It’s hard to get a handle on how much better current Blu-ray is than streaming services because the quality can vary sharply from movie to movie. In some head-to-head comparisons, Blu-ray wins by a mile, while in others, the gap is extremely hard to see. Finally, as far as we know, neither Sony nor Microsoft supports Blu-ray Ultra HD content in their respective game consoles. Both companies could hypothetically include support in future generations of the Xbox One or PlayStation 4, but not without replacing the conventional Blu-ray player with a more advanced model. It’s expected that new players will retain the option to play 1080p Blu-ray discs, just as modern Blu-ray players can still handle DVDs without a problem. There’s no plan for a 3D standard for media players this time around, because there’s no native 4K 3D content. The shift to 10-bit color, however, should pay dividends — provided that television manufacturers cooperate by shipping panels that can actually display movies in that mode."
  24. looks like Oppo have taken to social media to tease on the upcoming release.... https://twitter.com/OPPODIGITAL OPPO Digital ‏@OPPODIGITAL Jun 3 "Oh, look. It's the display on our upcoming 4K player, lighting up for the first time." see you again.... 1/19 ? not sure if this means - see you again on jan 19 2017 ? same thing on their Facebook page as well. in previous communications to anyone thats asked they have said availability late this year early next year. so I do think CEDIA perhaps for concept if they are aiming to launch for CES next year. for us in australia thats perhaps a month or two later we might get it. other responses from them has said there will be a 103 style replacement 1st followed later for a 105 level replacement. oled display ? perhaps this player isn't just a direct replacement using their current 101ci player as basis ps am glad got my sammy uhd player to keep me going in the mean time... can now sit back and wait... I'm scared what the oppo might cost being their 1st gen player...but fingers crossed not too much more than their current players and the 101ci starts t $599 the 103 at $799 samsung and particularly the panasonic look out ....
  25. I'm watching Today Tonight and they are flogging Ultra High Definition .... I can't help thing this will gain less of a market than blu ray, and blu ray is struggling. Perhaps I'm too pessimistic?
