Umm. Sort of...

I had a Denon in the living room that died, and I replaced it with this. I then had a Pioneer SC-57 in the home theater that died. I ended up replacing the Pioneer with a Denon S930.

I then discovered that the issue that took down the Pioneer was now covered under a recall, so I had it repaired. Leaving me with 3 receivers. So now the plan is to use the S930 and the SC-57. I actually forgot I even posted it for sale here until this thread.

Anyone experienced a sudden failure of IR repeaters? Granted they are about 10 years old but seems odd that both (I have two separate repeater units) have failed in the same system. There have power but something is stopping communication with devices.

Will order new ones off Amazon.

To be honest it's not something that is worth chasing at this moment.

The only things that are broadcast in 4k are Toronto home games (MLB, MLS, NBA). Most of the 4k leafs telecasts are blacked out.

WJC has been in 4k a couple times.

I don't think you will see 4K outside of toronto anytime soon for sports.

There are some movie/netflix/amazon prime options out there but its not a huge amount.

Fox tried it for an NFL game and it didn't go so well.

Sky Sports does some F1 in UHD, but I've not been able to find a stream.

As bizarre as it sounds, TSN/Sportsnet seem to be at for forefront for 4k.

Where are folks purchasing their home theatre equipment these days? I'm looking at getting the XBR85X950G from Sony as well as an AVRX2500H Denon receiver. Visions has both but is Visions a great option these days? In the past, they have been challenging to deal with if there is any after sales support that's needed. Normally, Costco is my go to option but they don't carry the TV I'd like...for now. Best Buy and Amazon are also options too I suppose.

Anyone here have a OLED for a little while? Any issues with burn in?

I just got a LG C9 last week and I love it. Amazing picture and noticeably better than my Panasonic Plasma.

I had read about burn in however and have been babying it

Iíve only had my C9 for about six months but I havenít noticed any burnin. My plasma would get temporary lines from letterboxing but nothing permanent after 10 years. I think the software is smart enough to prevent it during casual use. Just as long as youíre not keeping a static image on it for hours and hours it should be fine.
