    Nvidia Expands G-Sync Support to Approved Adaptive Sync Monitors

    General VRR question. My Samsung TV and xBox one X support it, but my Marantz AVR is my hub. Is this a pass through type of thing or does the Xbox need to go directly to tv? Thanks.

    OPPO Digital Ceases Development of Hi-Fi Audio Products and Universal Disc Players

    Maybe when they post their final firmwares before closing up shop forever, they will region unlock them all, remove cinavia, and allow ISO playback!

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    Good advice. Thanks. Replaced the cable. Updated tv firmware. Fixed problem first direct to tv, then through avr. All good now! Edit: spoke too soon. Looks like handshake issues now. Ugh. Edit2: Marantz HDR issue. When I turn off HDR on Xbox, no issues with Marantz, even at 10bit...

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    Hooked up my One X to my new samsung UN82MU8000 TV running through a Marantz SR7011 avr. Everyone works fine, including Dolby Atmos. However, Xbox doesn’t recognize HDR10, even though the Marantz and the Samsung support it. Worth replacing the HDMI cable? Or am I missing something else...

    NVIDIA TITAN Xp Introduced as “World's Most Powerful Graphics Card”

    I expected the 1080Ti when I bought my Titan X pascal. I'm a bit miffed at this announcement, but I'll live. All of these cards kick ass. Will be interesting to see what, if any, gains are to be had a 4K.

    Nvidia announces GeForce GTX Gaming Celebration event, Feb 28th

    I bought a pascal Titan X shortly after launch. I knew this day would come, but I expected at least a $799 price for the Ti. That being said, I've had many months with my card and it's been fantastic. Overclock on core about 200MHz and memory to nearly 11GhZ. Overall, not too upset with...

    TWC Modem Suggestion

    I checked this out. Thanks for the info. Still no definitive fix, although it is said one is in the works. With the SB6190, the modem status showed tens of thousands of errors, both correctable and uncorrectable. They would gradually increase after each modem reboot. I replaced the SB6190...

    Finally pulled the DAC trigger

    I have the same setup. I think you will be pleased. I also have a bifrost multibit and an Asgard 2. Still trying to decide if I can truly tell a difference with the headphones I have.

    TWC Modem Suggestion

    I routinely hit 300ish/20-25 on Speedtest from a wired connection. Though not during peak hours (I live in a large condo building).

    TWC Modem Suggestion

    My SB6190 has been rock solid on twc for months. Using on 300/20 plan.

    HDHR DVR will NOT be launching with DRM support for CableCard protected content as stated FYI

    I'm not concerned. They will likely deliver on the final product, just over 2 years late. And to be honest, I have 8 tuners between my tivos, all networked, with Netflix and plex. I'm better off now anyway. And it's much easier for my kids to use.

    Agreed. Glad it was only $30. Lesson learned for sure.

    HDHR DVR will NOT be launching with DRM support for CableCard protected content as stated FYI

    I supported the kickstarter. The initial pitch by the company was great. Lost faith after the incredibly long delays. All my cable channels are protected. The windows 7 MCE guide switch to rovio didn't help either. Been rocking lifetime Tivos and minis for over a year and haven't looked...
