    A few words about...™ Poltergeist -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I'd think they should just let the display makers deal w/ potential burn-in issues (on their actual displays) instead, if that's really the concern. IF so, this is a rather/overly "big brother" approach to "helping" an issue that should be better dealt with/by (and the responsibility of) the...

    A few words about...™ Poltergeist -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Y'all are definitely giving me the itch to upgrade this (and maybe Lost Boys) to 4K disc soon-ish... though would like to see the playback issues "resolved" first... _Man_

    A few words about...™ Poltergeist -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Kinda know what you mean... and said more or less the same earlier -- maybe in a different thread announcing the preorder or something.

    A few words about...™ Poltergeist -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    What regular reports of problems do you mean? I haven't really seen such in the last couple years -- usually, it's just discs needing to be cleaned. :confused: _Man_

    A few words about...™ Poltergeist -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Did you try the usual disc cleaning protocol(s)? 4K discs do often enough seem to come w/ some (at times hard to see/notice) dirt/film/gunk and are apparently super-sensitive/susceptible to playback issues w/ the slightest such obstacles, imperfections, etc... And yes, such can certainly lead...
