    HDR Sucks

    Yes I saw this about a year ago when I was watching The Town on my CX in the Apple TV app, switched to my Apple TV box and it wasn't there and haven't used the app since. I'm surprised it hasn't been fixed yet. I have had HDR issues very occasionally with PS4/PS5 where the color is way off...

    AirPod Pros

    I've had Max's for about a week. They sound great, especially with movies (I watched The Sound of Metal on Amazon last night with them and they were so incredible for that because it's such a unique film sonically). Device switching is cool as long as you don't want to say watch a video without...

    Do you have another HDMI input on the TV you could try?

    NBC Sports Network shutting down, sports content headed to USA Network

    I don’t think so because I don’t think Fox wants to have to deal with creating content for an entertainment cable network like USA anymore. I’m sure they wish FS1 performed better, but post Disney-acquisition Fox has a really trim and agile business and for broadcast TV the future is a lot of...

    NBC Sports Network shutting down, sports content headed to USA Network

    Media conglomerates gonna media conglomerate. Universal's film business is bleeding money so they hit their cable business. I doubt NBC Sports Network ever had remarkable ratings for much, it existed to propel viewers to NBC proper, and recently existed to propel viewers to Peacock. The pandemic...

    Yeah I put on Winter Soldier the other night on my CX and one scene where they dipped to black was so dark the TV looked off. On a regular LCD that is backlight hell.

    iPhone 12

    The cable that comes with the phone is lighting to USB-C, but it will charge with the old lighting to USB cable too. I have had a Pro for about a week, right now it's a fast iPhone with a great screen and a great battery (to me, coming from an X that had a pretty degraded battery). I did get a...

    Spotify Alternatives

    One knock on YouTube is that it doesn’t work with Alexa. I use Apple because it’s easy and elegant on everything but I never use iTunes on a PC, if I did I probably would hate it. I pay for YouTube Premium so do technically have a subscription to their music service but the Alexa issue is too...

    iPhone 12

    I feel like the big losers in this are non MagSafe case makers. I really like the Jimmycase I have on my X, but went with a clear MagSafe case with a wallet for a Pacific Blue 12 Pro. The wallet price is really outrageous but it works so well with what I already do, popping out my license and...

    iPhone 12

    I held out on my X for 5G, usually I buy every other year. I‘ll grab a Pro, I don’t usually care much about the cameras as long as they’re pretty good but I possibly have a lead to do some video editing and being able to just grab 4K 60fps Dolby Vision video on a walk in New York with a phone...

    2020 AL Wild Card Round

    ABC will have 2pm games Thursday and Friday (if necessary, there need to be at least 2 series still going, ESPN will take 1 for primetime since ABC has the NBA Finals that night).

    Yeah I did get both replaced pretty easily. Thanks!

    Recommend me a 55-65 inch TV

    Between all of them are improved processors, but what the processors are for is mainly 4K upscaling and sound from the TV’s speakers. Those may not be things you care a ton about (a 4K movie will look similar on all 4 and if you have a soundbar or a receiver you don’t care about the TV’s...
