    If you’ve recently purchased a new television (or are considering one soon), then you’re probably aware of a technology called high dynamic range (HDR). HDR is one of the more important video innovations in recent years, far outpacing all of those extra pixels delivered by 4K panels. In...

    I have heard good things about San Andreas as far as the Atmos track, not such good things about the movie itself :D I am new to Atmos so was hoping there were some Bluray's you can suggest which really show off the new format. Thanks :T

    The physical media side of the 4K equation has been simmering backburner material for nearly a year. Last January, Panasonic arrived at CES 2015 with the world’s first publicly revealed prototype Ultra HD Blu-ray player. Several months later the Blu-ray Disc Association announced a finalized...

    I bought Oblivion and In The Pines, got home and put both in my Sony BDP-S570 that is pretty current with current updates done, I just checked . Why will they play the stuff before the movie, and when it gets time to play the actual show, it just sits there spinning like it is searching for the...

    I just picked up the Hobbit on BluRay 3D. The movie has been split onto 2 discs. Isnt there enough space on a single BluRay to hold the entire 3D Movie? Splitting the movie is a chore!

    Would anyone suggest one or two of your favorite blu ray discs that you have used to set up and calibrate your HTS? I am interested in both excellent quality soundtrack and video. Thanks in advance for your suggestions. I am grateful.

    Am I the only one who receives scratched discs that cease to play during the movie? This occurs between once out of five, to once out of ten discs. Really disappointing as we don't watch that many per month. Last night was Valkyrie, and there was a chip out of the disc surface that would be...

    Thinking about finally getting an oppo Blu-ray player but still have oppo dvd players and standard dvd players in all other rooms and in our vehicles. If I start buying blu-ray movies, do they also come with dvd versions which we can watch in other rooms and vehicles or do I need to buy both a...

    Can you really tell that much difference between good old DVD-format DD/DTS track and the high-resolution audio on bluray discs? Is it worth spending bunches of money? ("bunches" used purposefully here-- by it I mean to assume that it means whatever amount YOU would consider "bunches" to...

    I notice that I generally play my blu-rays at the same volume level of my master volume. This wasn't the case with DVDs. They were always all over the place. Some are mastered really much hotter than others. Blu-rays appear more consistent. Does anyone else notice this? Is there an...

    I know that seems to defeat the purpose of High Def media... but I am talking about storage here. Not just disc storage, but our own personal shelf storage. I have many TV series on DVDs and each season takes up a lot of space. So here's the question... Would you buy a full season in SDVD...
