    Identifying Atmos Content Is Like Pulling Teeth

    I bought Baby Driver on Vudu. The PQ is nothing like a disc, but the Atmos track is actually really good. Neat, Ford vs. Ferrari is on sale this week! But, hm, Vudu only offers it in 5.1. (There are a lot of movies not offered in Atmos on Vudu; a long sad story.) Hey, Apple has it with an...

    https://www.macrumors.com/2020/03/19/eu-urges-netflix-to-limit-stream-quality-covid-19/ I don't do an awful lot of streaming (just Picard at the moment, and probably the Orville when they return), but I know a lot of you do and might find this interesting.

    Cheap tablet for Plex WiFi streaming?

    I know almost nothing about the current crop of tablets. I just set up a HTPC running Plex, and on a lark I tried installing the client on an old iPad Mini from 2012ish that my wife got for free ages ago. We’ve never used it for anything else - between our TVs, laptops and iPhones, there just...

    Streaming Live Prime Sports

    I decided to try tonight’s Eagles at Packers game live on Prime sine it said it would be 4K. One great thing I noticed is that it seems to have dvr style pause and resume, but I can’t figure out a way to fast forward back to live. I suspect this is because they don’t want people to skip...

    Why is there no My Fair Lady in streaming form

    My Fair Lady is my favorite musical, but I prefer digital streaming on my Apple TV. It’s just easier for me. But two film favorites of mine are My Fair Lady and Pink Floyd’s The Wall. Why is there no release for these in digital streaming form.
