    Will Probably Need to Replace the SR605...Can Someone Help Choose a New AVR Based on Specific Needs?

    Okay, so, as I asserted in a different thread, our trusty Onkyo 605 -- bought new when it was released and never exhibiting a single hiccup until now -- seems to have succumbed to the HDMI OUT failure, as I can no longer see the setup menu on our Samsung 4K screen when I press the SETUP menu on...

    Questions Concerning DTS MA 2.0 Mono and Stereo Tracks on Blu-rays (From Labels Like Scream/Kino) and How Older AVRs Process Them

    I am running an Onkyo TX-SR605 AVR, which was purchased in and around when the model hit the market (circa 2007 or so), and while we have experienced zero issues with it thus far (save for what may be a now-failing HDMI out port that I use only for checking the receiver's settings on my 4K...

    Is This the Dreaded HDMI Out Failure on my TX-SR605...or Something Else?

    We have been running an Onkyo TX-SR605 since it was released (so circa 2007/2008 or so) and it has powered two different systems, first in an apartment we had and then in a house we moved into. It actually does everything we need, save for the height formats of course (Dolby Atmos/DTS:X), as it...

    Why is There No Talk of a Terminator 3 UHD Blu-ray?

    I understand it's not a popular entry in the franchise, though it is my personal favorite of them all, but I can't seem to find ANY buzz from ANYONE on any site about a possible release of this on UHD Blu; I own the regular Blu-ray (which replaced an old full screen DVD edition I previously...

    Zack Snyder's Justice League -- Any Word on UHD Blu Availability?

    I had read that this was going to be available on physical copy around the end of May or so (for those of us who were waiting to buy the disc version rather than watch the HBO Max variant), but I don't see Best Buy or other outlets taking pre-orders for it. Does anyone know where this can be...

    A Question/Possible Issue Regarding HOBBS AND SHAW UHD Blu-ray...

    If anyone owns this title (I know, I know...it's seriously over the top and totally off the rails even compared to Fate of the Furious), can you check something for me? The HDR grade is supposed to be in Dolby Vision and HDR10+ according to specs and from what I was told on a UK-based forum...

    Mill Creek Entertainment's Reissue of THE THING (2011) Missing Chapter Access in Main Menu?

    Can anyone who owns this release confirm something for me? Universal had originally put out this Blu-ray of the 2011 prequel to John Carpenter's shocking classic, but Mill Creek Entertainment reissued it last year, and that's the version I recently picked up. I didn't notice until last...

    DTS-HD Master Audio 4.1 Track and My Onkyo 605...Please Assist

    I picked up the Scream Factory Collector's Edition Blu-ray of John Carpenter's The Thing yesterday at a local buy-and-sell shop (the disc was actually new) to replace the non-anamorphic Region 1 Universal DVD I owned, and if any of you are familiar with Scream's Blu-ray of this title, there is a...

    A Quick Query About the Joker UHD Blu-ray...

    First, let me preface this by saying thank you to everyone who participated in my Poltergeist thread and for clarifying what I wanted to know about that Blu-ray release; it was much appreciated and confirmed for me that I can just get the barebones release because all the discs are the same in...

    A Question About Tobe Hooper's Poltergeist on Blu...

    Are all the releases of this title on Blu-ray the same? Do they share the same transfer? I know there was a digibook of the title put out by Warner Bros. some time ago, plus some special edition-esque DVDs with a supposed "remastering," but there are bare bones versions of the Blu-ray floating...

    What DVD Did You Watch Last?

    Didn't see a thread for this, so if there is one, this can be merged, I suppose; being that I still believe this is a viable medium and possess a formidable collection of discs (and still buy those that never made it to Blu-ray or UHD), figured this was a cool place for the remaining DVD fans to...

    "Picture Profile" Settings on Panasonic UB9000

    I have a question regarding the DP-UB9000's picture settings memory for the different picture profiles; as some of you who have perhaps used the Panasonic UHD Blu-ray players know, they allow for three separate custom picture profiles for the three different types of disc-based video media the...

    Can't Get My Head Around This "Blur Reduction" Setting on My Samsung...

    I have a Samsung NU8000 4K panel, and under the "Auto Motion Plus" menu, which controls the display's motion interpolation, there are two sliders for Blur Reduction and Judder Reduction (in addition to one for black frame insertion, which I don't use because of the horrible flicker it causes). I...

    High Resolution Formats Like BD and UHD BD with Artifacting Problems?

    Is it possible for high resolution formats such as Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray to exhibit video artifacting issues with their transfers? Let me come at this from another direction... I've watched my 1080p Blu-ray copy of Captain America: Civil War, since it came out on, first, a Sony 50"...

    Can Someone PLEASE Assist Me with Some HDR Questions as They Relate to a Panasonic UB9000?

    I own a Samsung UN65NU8000 and recently purchased a Panasonic DP-UB9000 Ultra HD Blu-ray player to replace a Cambridge Audio CXUHD unit that was connected to my NU that was giving me some trouble with DVD playback (and which their repair center couldn't fix even after sending the player out...

    Can Someone Assist with Panasonic UB9000 Questions?

    I am a (relatively) new owner of a Panasonic DP-UB9000 and while it's not connected to the most ultimate of flat screens (a Samsung NU8000), I want to confirm that I'm set up correctly in order to take advantage of the HDR Optimizer with 4K playback (and even ensure that it's connected right for...
