    Second Screen iPad app

    Hi Mike, I've always loved the Second Screen app - a somewhat unsung hero of the system IMHO, so I'm glad its getting some attention here! It works great for me, so the only thing I'd suggest in terms of a change would be a fresh lick of paint in line with the iPhone app as its perhaps looking...

    Readers' Rooms

    Yes I saw that Jim, but they were referring to the one in the rack. The ones on the bench also seem to have perfect optical drive shaped reflections. ;) Reflections of what might have been perhaps!

    The 2 Stratos on the bench look like they have optical drives too 🤔 🤫 😂

    Great post, Tim and amazing set up. It will be tough to say goodbye to I'm sure. You missed an important item off the Equipment List that I spotted in the pics though: * Can of Stella An essential part of the experience surely! :D

    4K purchased but only HD showing

    Perhaps because the end to end system isn’t set up, the K system cant confirm that there’s a HDR capable display. I didn’t think this would prevent downloading though. I’ve had a similar issue where my display wasn’t reporting its capabilities correctly via EDID to my HDMI matrix and onto my...

    Home Router Recomendations

    Had mine for about 9 months. Rock solid with no issues so far whatsover and provides great insight into what's happening on the network. Definitely a brand I envisage sticking to, upgrading access points to wifi 6 when time is right etc. Would recommend (y)

    M700 not outputting video

    Thanks for replying Andy. Yes, it is part of the system and I restarted it from the browser interface while troubleshooting the issue. I also removed it from the matrix it was connected to and connected directly to the TV with a new cable. Problem still persists. I have heard of the HDMI module...

    M700 not outputting video

    Hi all, overnight my M700 doesn’t seem to be outputting a video signal. I’ve rebooted, switched cables, connected to a different display and have the same problem. Is this just the symptom of a worn out integrated player, and if so is repair possible, or might there be another fix via settings...

    Video Cutting Out on Strato

    For what its worth, my Co-Star is hooked up straight to the TV (also an LG OLED) and I had the same problems as you at 18gbps.

    Video Cutting Out on Strato

    Yes, I had the same issue of flickering and drop outs and this was more or less my exact experience. Got fancy, expensive new cables but before connecting them I reduced to 13.5gbps in the video settings on the player which fixed it completely and as I‘m pretty sure I can’t see any loss of...

    Signal loss between end of playback and OSD

    Yes, already tested by unpairing from Co-Star and playing directly. Same problem. Will report back when I’ve tried the fancy new cables!

    Signal loss between end of playback and OSD

    Thanks Jim. Wonder also for anyone using a matrix or similar, is having to limit to 13.5Gbps common? Could understand this with the long cable runs and HdbaseT connectivity common with matrices. But having said that I’m also having the same issue with my direct to display Strato C/Co-Star...
