    Disney+ Dr. Strange in IMAX enhanced 1.90 on Disney+ is a new standard for streaming quality

    Like all franchise efforts, the well must eventually run dry. Since there are executives and investors involved, the well must be pumped until they are absolutely sure it is indeed dry.

    Help me upgrade (AV Receiver, Sub/s, and advice)

    The room will be your biggest limiting factor and practically rules out Atmos. I'm admittedly biased but I believe SVS offers the best overall performance vs value combination so I'd go with the largest single sub [minimum PB3000] you can afford for now and grab it's twin when funds are...

    A Serious Question --- Why Is Sanford And Son and All In The Family Okay And Amos And Andy Not

    *******This post is intended for @BobO'Link and @RobertMG only ******* My only problem with the thread is the "if/then" proposition it introduces surrounding possibly controversial material. In my experience, this sort of content can bring strange lurkers out of the woodwork and quickly cause...

    A Serious Question --- Why Is Sanford And Son and All In The Family Okay And Amos And Andy Not

    This comment is obvious and therefore unnecessary. You don't own the forum; we are all guests here, so speaking in an authoritative fashion like this amounts to nothing. The OP and I had already "agreed to disagree" in a respectful manner. I don't see a post where he requested you to come...

    A Serious Question --- Why Is Sanford And Son and All In The Family Okay And Amos And Andy Not

    ...And they or another Mod probably should but let me be clear, I am not at all at odds with you personally. I just see this sort of topic as a powder keg and also an invitation for racial vitriol I'd personally rather not experience.

    A Serious Question --- Why Is Sanford And Son and All In The Family Okay And Amos And Andy Not

    This is a topic that will obviously be viewed differently based on age, race, personal experiences and perhaps other factors. I don't know [or care] what sort of controversy may be brewing around the topic today. What I do know is I don't come to HTF for this sort of fare. If it interested me...

    A Serious Question --- Why Is Sanford And Son and All In The Family Okay And Amos And Andy Not

    That's a matter of opinion. I find it hopelessly subjective and potentially provocative.

    A Serious Question --- Why Is Sanford And Son and All In The Family Okay And Amos And Andy Not

    This thread will get off track really fast. Probably better to find somewhere else to discuss this sort of thing.

    The long delayed stadium tour had a couple of glitches on its first night

    We saw New Edition earlier this year in ATL. I think this was the first show of the tour. They were excellent but these guys aren't all that old and [with the exception of Bobby Brown] haven't really lived that hard as far as I know. Other notable Old School acts who can still bring it are...

    Not sure I follow your logic there as it is usually software that obsoletes contemporary computers, especially in business environments. Due to the manifestation of Moore's law over the years, hardware is rarely an issue.

    Too funny but, I'm guessing, unintentional. We're on the same page although, I must admit, the field is narrowing considerably thanks to Micro$oft and Windows 11. They're doing their best to place restrictions on both the operating system you're allowed to run on your own hardware and the...

    I perused a few ASUS boards last night and found several others with the same problem. One guy even claimed he traced it to a bad solder connection and could replicate the problem on demand. I didn't mention it earlier because I figured you'd probably already run across the same thread.

    PC's are for DIY nuts. MAC's are for those who view their computer as a productivity/creativity tool and nothing more. The price of their reliability is cost and lack of control over the experience Personally If I can't tinker with it then I don't want it but I do acknowledge this also comes...

    ViewSonic introduces high brightness home cinema projectors

    Oh I know. Just making a joke about the padded wording.

    Just took a look at the Motherboard you bought. That's some serious hardware!!! Wondering if you tried using their BIOS Flashback utility.
