  • Re: This might be fun: thoughts about Mapleshade's products (specifically, wires)?

    I know they get very positive consumer reactions. Never tried any myself, but all of his products seem to cure a tweakers wet dream.

    The McLaren eclipsed the Veyron several years ago. One can certainly build a single purpose car............like a straight line car pretty easily since you don't have to deal with real world issues.

    In a straight line it (The Veyron) might loose by a few ticks. Straight line performance is only good for one thing. I guess if one likes a 1 dimensional car, then go for it! :D

    P,s, the last sentence is said in jest and good fun.

    You can have VW. lol

    I do and they are pretty 'effing awesome! GM, now there's a shady company that actually killed people and knew something was wrong from the very beginning, but ignored it? Your point? Talk about shady and GREEDY and people actually died.

    Thanks for trying to drag this off topic, I guess your reading comprehension needs work.

    P.s. at the corporate level they still have excellent customer service as far as I have been concerned. Dealer network, that's another issue entirely as that varies. But the ones that carry multiple brands have CS issues with all the brands. It's there business philosophy and has little to do with the brand in many cases.

  • Re: Polk Audio Magnifi Mini - An Ongoing Review

    Tony, the entire Smart Cast engine is in the Android tablet, not the TV. That runs the whole TV and like a computer and your phone you can set it to automatically update or notify and give permission. The tablet sits in a wireless charging cradle 24/7 waiting for use. It's about 25% larger than a typical Android phone.

    But I will investigate further, maybe I need to initiate some things from the tablet that don't automatically update. But on a few occasions the tablet has made noise indicating it was finished updating something, we didn't initiate in those instances.

    In fact the gf was sneaky the other day when she went out on the deck. We had been talking about a song and couldn't remember who sang it. After about a minute the TV started YouTube and the video of the song. She had cast it from her phone while on the deck. For a minute I was like "WTF", but then I remembered we can cast from any Android device.

    I agree maybe ARC isn't the best way. The only annoying thing is that different commercials and broadcasts have different volumes, but not on the TV alone and the delay of sound coming back on when pausing/ff/rew recorded content. I do need to look into the ARC settings. IIRC, the delay also happened when using the optical out into the Magnifi Mini. Overall a bit annoying but not enough to unrecommend.
