    texture quality improves with resolution, so you definitely want both together to get the larger effect. But I agree that textures tend to be the first thing people notice.

    I really like the newer content support that @Rys installed a few weeks back. Instead of having to click through to another site to see if I'm interested in the content, I can read the entire content inline. Then if I want to see the follow-up discussions I can click through and continue reading on the third party site.

    Anyways, back to reading what thoughts Frankie shares with us.

    Here's the video of the commercial Microsoft is running for their Xbox One X console, "Feel True Power". It's supposed to air during the premiere tonight of The Walking Dead.

    I'm not sure how I feel about that one. Ignoring feelings, I don't know if the message was clear about what I am buying into.

    There were very few words explaining exactly what it was just some imagery and rap music conveying a vague idea. I think they need to deliver a message similar to how it was done in E3 2016. Of course condensed and ...maybe... with a few celebrities, eg the Rock?

    I know whats instore for me - a whole bunch of spending money1

    4K TV installed last weekend. Kinect adapter purchased (note: free upgrade from XBOX One S launch period now ended and there isn't one for X, but price appears to have dropped to $30CAD). Playing around with Blu-rays via the XBOX I have the Idiotic-eureka-moment (I can't believe I didn't know this before) that an optical cable cant handle uncompressed multi-channel audio so with an HDMI 1.4 receiver I'll lose either high quality audio or HDR imagery (first world problems) so a new Receiver is on the list too.

    Still, nice excuse for some new kit purchasing... ;)

    Use ARC with HDMI1.4

    Run your sources directly to the TV. Then a HDMI cable on the ARC ports between your TV and Receiver.

    That will give you the cleanest video output while still being able to decode HD audio.

    ARC on the Samsung can only handle DTS or DD compressed formats, not uncompressed for some reason. They have also gone backwards in the last few generations where it is not automatically selecting the optimal format for the receiver (i.e. if you select DD for a for a source, which may include your files on a DLNA server, and the content is DTS the TV defaults back to PCM!). I've generally stuck by Samsung for TV's, but their handling of audio in the last few generations is frankly bad; its not been an issue before because I'd route through the receiver but this upgrade has brought this issue to the fore.

    Just Xbox One. >_>

    They're doing a big update in 2018, so who knows. Maybe part of the networking upgrades will make it less broken for Win10 deployment.
