      Interesting podcast as always.

      Only watched a brief snippet of Dynasties on iPlayer via Roku SS+ and it looks stunning and does trigger HDR HLG on my DX902.

      brilliant podcast as always

      really got into the Netflix Star Trek series but cant stand Orville, tried it a few times and it just grates on my nerves (I tried watching when the 1st series was new too) - starting to watch New Generation for the 1st time and really enjoying it (although Q really drives me bonkers).

      also invested in a LG B8 (65") last week - on a really good deal so looking forward to having that delivered this week, so mark another success to all your chatter about LG's from the whole team in the last year or so.

      Importing UHD's from the states is now making them more expensive than over here thanks to the change in how they are charging taxes now - majority of new releases are around £35 now even before p&p which is about £10 more than it used to be (from same supplier). Obviously going to be a few US releases as you mentioned that are delayed / not planned for Euro release , but then I buy 5- 6 at once to cover the cost of p&p

      As always thank you for the podcast, nice to hear Seven Oaks Sponsoring this. Most of my kit has come from them over the years and I've found them to be very good. (To be clear I have no connection with the business, just a satisfied customer).

      If you need the room heating up, just re-review that old Denon AVCA1-XVA after it's been playing heavy rock for several hours ! No need for any C/H !

      Love a bit of steamroller news !

      For those coming to London for the shoot out and have some extra time, i would recommend this if its your sort of thing: Home Shrouds - Shrouds Of The Somme

      Apologies that it's a bit of a tangent, but i know the pod-cats have been interested in modern war events in the past.

      In reference to the socks. Should these be run in or will a clean pair suffice?

      I agree with Steve about 'Overlord' being a guaranteed demo-worthy disc, it was my first thought watching the opening :p - which by the way, was like a mix between the intro to Unbroken + Edge of Tomorrow ;)

      I had no idea what the movie was about when I saw it, all I saw was the poster and the short description on imdb, which funnily enough, seems to have changed now. It used to say: "The story of two American soldiers behind enemy lines on D Day."

      It now says: "A small group of American soldiers find horror behind enemy lines on the eve of D-Day."

      But yeah, I had no idea it had a horror element to it, so that was quite a surprise when the story veered off into "fictional" territory. But was very enjoyable, loved it. The gun sounds throughout were incredible :eek:

      It's basically Wolfenstein: The Movie in all but name :D

      Oh by the way Phil - you must have very steady hands - the LG magic remote is the biggest pain in the *** you can come across (but the B8 itself after a few hours of use is fabulous) - haven't seen any option method in accessability or elsewhere to use a more standard method of selection.

      I did try that last night and it didn't appear to work at all
      thinking about it, I wonder if remote has to be still for this method to work - ie someone like me with slightly shaky hands has to put it down and then use the arrow keys otherwise the OS thinks you are trying to use the "magic" way......

      I've found just using the buttons overrides the pointer

      Just pressing the direction buttons and using the scroll wheel works for me. The remote can use a combination of both the navigation keys and its "Magic" remote abilities simultanrously. If your remote's navigation keys are not functioning then I'd suggest a faulty remote. The navigation keys don't move the cursor, but do select the various items. Maybe you are expecting the keys to control the cursor's location?

      not exactly , but would expect the cursor to disappear and the "next" box/ choice to light up on the corresponding push of an arrow key - in normal operation the arrows appear to work (as I was thinking the same as you) but no selection seemed to be obvious after a few key presses of just the arrows

      Scroll is definitely working used that several times ok - anyway will double check that tonight cheers for the confirmation / added detail

      Dynasties doesn't seem to trigger HLG on my C8. Anyone else have any luck?

      Just watched some of it on a ZF9 and it is in HLG. I have a C8 and Philips OLED903 here but it is not easy to set up at the moment due to other review items being used, but I'll try and test as soon as I can.

      Old stuck in the mud 1080p watcher here. Is BBC 4K coverage still limited to stereo only (my understanding down to bandwidth?) as if you don’t watch it in 5.1 you are missing out as it puts you in the centre of the Chimp action and was very good (through our 7.1 system) in my humble?
