Movie reviews / Re: Come and See Blu-ray

This looks very interesting, thanks for highlighting it Craig. I agree - I really enjoy getting to see different viewpoints of wars and other big events.
I'm still thinking about it 2 days later. It's a powerful film. I will watch it again in the not too distant future. Hopefully with friends that like movies that are different ( I have several ) - when covid is gone.

Why do the X6700 have connections for 13 speakers on the back and it can only amp 11.2 channels? I get the 13 pre outs and the processing of the additional two channels, but wouldn't you connect the 12th and 13th speaker wires to the amp? I'm thinking of upgrading from the 6300H. It's 11.2 also. I have 4 of my 6 ceiling speakers wired together as TFL & TFR. With the 6700 I could have all six set up properly.  Is there a way two bring the sound back to the avr and use the last two height ports or am I missing something?

4K UltraHD Blu-ray / UHD player recommendations for Dolby Vision?
« Last post by flyinion on Yesterday at 12:02:49 AM »
Hey guys looking for recommendations for a Dolby Vision capable UHD player, hopefully around 250-300 max.  My X800 is the original version that didn't do Dolby Vision (didn't understand about the formats at the time and didn't have a 4K TV 2 years ago when I bought it).  I was looking at the X700 or maybe the LG UBK90 but it seems like the X700 you have to toggle Dolby Vision on and off which seems like a bad call because then I have to try to figure out if the disc has it or not.  The UBK90 seemed good but I read about an issue which may or may not have been a firmware bug (vs intended behavior) where you had to toggle between 60 and 24p manually.

If I didn't I would have already pulled out my 106" manual pull down High Power screen. It would fit between my left and right speaker. Would have to turn off the center and run phantom. Probably would have to turn off the two 18" subs in the baffle wall also. But at least I would have a picture. :) 

I have been talking to my daughter, she just got married and bought a house. I have enough extra stuff laying around to give them an HT. Have sitting around, a couple projectors, two screens, six identical speakers, a couple AVR's and several subwoofers and several amps. Would need to build a box for a subwoofer. But they would not have to buy anything.

Found out today what the delay is on my new screen. Parts problem. Seymour/Screen Excellence is out of the RQ control cards for the Trim masking system and due to Covid 19, it is taking a lot longer than normal to get more. They are hoping to have new cards by middle of August. I ordered this screen in March. Thought I would get it in June, due to them having to build seven others before mine. Glad I was not needing this screen for a new room without any screen. :)

Bummer! :o  Good to know you still have a screen to use though. :)
