  1. Cheers, I'll take a look. I kept finding ones that were 4k/30, but must have been looking in the wrong places.
  2. My room doesn't have the layout to support a good 5.1 setup unfortunately, hence the 2.1 base which I really like. I'm struggling to find a good HDMI switch that supports 4k/60 or (120, the TV supports that) and HDR. Am I looking in the wrong place?
  3. So my kit is: - Sony XG90 TV - Sony HT-XT1 Soundbase - Sky HD - Xbox One X - Switch - Chromecast Ultra - PC The TV has 4 HDMI ports. The Soundbase has 3. Currently I have the Sky plugged into the Soundbase and into the TV with that TV input set to TV/Movie specific modes. I then have the other 3 ports on the TV filled with the CCU (used for Stadia), Xbox and Switch, and all 3 are set to game mode. And now I have a gaming PC, but no way to connect it directly to the TV and enable game mode, or indirectly without messing something else up. The Soundbase is old enough not to support HDR so that doesn't work if I plug all the gaming into that either (the PC, Xbox and CCU all need decent HDMI, ideally directly into the TV). So I'm a bit stuck. I have a Harmony remote. I'm thinking my options might be: - Connect the Switch to the passthrough on the Xbox, assuming I can somehow get the Harmony to set the Xbox to the required app/mode/whatever, which frees up a TV hdmi port. - Get some sort of HDMI switch that works with Harmony and connect 2 or more of the gaming systems to it into a single HDMI port on the TV. Any help would be fantastic! Edit: I tested using HDMI passthrough on the Xbox with the Switch but there was over 1 second of audio delay!
  4. Hey all! What are my options for an affordable 32" 4k monitor mainly for work but needs low enough pixel response to be adequate for occasional gaming.
  5. As title really, I'm looking for any advice on nice comfortable, large headphones for a big head that support aptX LL over Bluetooth? Thanks!
  6. So, do we know if the evil looks about the XPS 15 are because of a likely redesign? I am about to get a new work laptop, and went into the office today and asked our IT guy to hold off ordering one yet. I have an XPS 15 9550 and love it. A new XPS 15 with the design tweaks of the latest 13 would be magic!
  7. "a platform this old!" I only retired my LGA775 system about 2 months ago...
  8. I have my optical cable from my TV split into two that goes to my sound base and also a Bluetooth transmitter. No idea how many devices the transmitter supports, but as it's optical I assume you could just split it again?
  9. Having done some more digging it looks like the 49" XG90 is actually a rebrand of the prior years XF90, rather than a small XG95. Not a bad thing in isolation as the XF90 is hardly a bad TV, but it was a £900 unit and the XG90 is £1,200, which stings. Anyone got a sledgehammer? I need to knock down a chimney so I can get s 55"+!
  10. Cheers. I'm steering away from the LGs and really only looking at the XG90 now. The Samsung Q70R is advertised as a 120Hz panel, but they sneak in that the 49" is actually 60Hz. A shame as it has FreeSync. I wish I could hang on for some 49" OLEDs but I've already committed to giving away my current TV, plus I'm not convinced the smaller OLEDs are going to be cheap until they are produced in higher volumes.
  11. 50 is my max unfortunately, and that's a squeeze. 55" would get me into the bottom of OLED, but that would fail the budget criteria. Having looked around I've narrowed it down to the 2 from each of LG, Sony and Samsung, one with full array dimming and one with edge LED dimming. The FALD ones would require a sale to get under the budget but I'm in no rush. LG SM90 (FALD) £1,099 LG SM86/SM85 (Edge) £849 Samsung Q70R (FALD) £1,399 Samsung Q60R/Q67R (Edge) £899 Sony XG90 (FALD) £1,199 Sony XG83 (Edge) £849 The Samsung seems the weakest like you say they are VA. I've no idea about the Sonys, only just started looking at them. I'm thinking of heading for the FALDs because if I drop to the Edge LED ones then there's one or two models lower down from each of the brand's that don't lose many features, so I may as well drop to them (they are all about £700+) and save a bit.
  12. Do you know of either have glossy screens? It's almost impossible to tell from online listings and photos.
  13. I'm after a new TV for the living room and I'm so out of touch I don't know where to start. My criteria is: Movies, TV and console gaming Absolutely has to be a matte screen, no glossy reflection nastyness Speakers are unimportant as it will use a separate sound system 4k, under 50" and under £1,000 Any help or advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks
  14. This is the odd thing about them. They seem cool and I really like the idea, and lots of reviewers and YouTubers seem pretty positive about them (the good ones, like you say Ben17), but I don't know anyone who actually has one and struggle to find any normal people online who do either. They seem to be very niche.
