    Anyone have a feel for how long it typically takes Extras to get added...? Been waiting for the Spider-Man: No Way Home special features to drop, and would also like to see whatever is included with The Batman.... Thanks!

    Black levels (The Batman)

    I've watched several films lately -- recent big releases -- and I've been disappointed with the black levels. I'm watching on a Sony OLED A80J and it's apparent right from the opening title scenes that black levels are more like dark grey (I'd subjectively say around 15 IRE) instead of the true...

    Video artifact in American Underdog?

    Hi! I watched American Underdog last night, and there is a part at about 26:54 where they are in a bar and there is a neon beer sign in the upper-right-corner. This has some really weird black and blue circles and blobs that appear on it. It cuts away and shows the same sign with same artifacts...

    With the fourth film getting ready to drop next week, it felt like the perfect time to revisit this amazing franchise and rewatch the original Trilogy.

    Store Demo Script Suggestions

    Just got a new Strato to demo in my showroom and use as a puppy-dog loaner, and I've loaded it up with about 85 4K HDR titles from my library... What would be your suggestions for a "Wow!" demo script that has like 5-10 pre-built-Kaleidescape scenes...? Scenes should be fun, dynamic, show off...

    I just got my new store demo Strato! (W00t!) Is there a way to go through my purchased content (it is linked to my personal account with like 200 titles) and checkmark tons of titles for download, or do I need to do it one at a time? Thanks!

    K-Vault10 grinding sound (help!)

    Had an issue where my K-Vault10 got disconnected from my M500 player. Rebooted it, and when it came back on line it started making this grinding sound. I thought maybe there was something in the carousel, so I opened it up and the carousel is totally free and spins normally. Looks like it is a...

    Ten Commandments video aspect

    Just downloaded and watched the new 4K HDR version of the Ten Commandments. When watching on my LED TV it is window boxed. Any idea why this would be? This doesn’t happen with any other titles that I can think of. Says it is 1.78 aspect (though more accurate it is 1.85). Curious if any one can...

    Disc Vault Waiting to Eject

    I have two discs I’m trying to get out of my K-Vault-10 (Dacal) and I can’t get them to eject. Went into the OSD of my M300 under disc and hit “eject discs waiting to be ejected” but still nothing. I have two vaults and these discs are in the vault attached to a co-Star paired system. Any...
