  • Since I want to go substantially larger than my Kuro's 60" size, and since - to my eyes - OLED is the only current satisfactory replacement for plasma, the only option I have at this time is LG's 77" OLED77C8PUA (street price $5000/MSRP $9000/allege…

  • After Photosuckit's phenomenal success with their 2017 Big Ransom Demand, I expected other free photo hosting sites to emulate and imitate. I hope this doesn't backfire and Flikr ends up getting flicked.

  • Port 2002 is automatically assigned and used by ISO2DSD. When ISO2DSD is first installed, the "IP address | Port" input window has "0.0.0.0 : 2002". You must have unknowingly erased the "2002" when you put in the IP address for your BDP-103.
  • There will be no port number showing under Settings on the Oppo. On ISO2DSD's Server Information screen, in the "IP Address | Port:" input window you would put: 10.0.0.125 : 2002, where "2002" is the port number.

  • Lately my eyes have been gravitating toward OLED TVs, and, in particular, the 2018 LG OLEDs with the A9 processor. I might be on to something.
  • Kuro plasmas are the "SDAs" of televisions.
  • I'm sold on 4K technology...but not 4K televisions. I currently have 24 4K movies and 12 2K Blu-rays that were mastered in 4K. I get more visual pleasure from watching a down-sampled 4K movie on my 2K plasma (Kuro!) than I do watching the 2K Blu-ray…
