    Any idea on James Bond movies?

    I still think we will eventually see the Bond films, the process of bringing those films to the Store is slower because of the various interests involved (existing contracts, various studios, other legal relationships), in addition to Broccoli approval. Jim

    Any idea on James Bond movies?

    The Bond films are more complicated, the plan is for them to eventually be in the Store, but it is not MGM that makes the decision, or sets the terms. Most of these film are still ultimately controlled by the Broccoli family (Barbara in particular). For a little more than a year now...

    Audio Issues

    The Lumagen VP's do a great job on many levels, and I'll continue to use and sell their products, but I have to agree that some of these issues go away when the Lumagen is removed from the chain. It must be difficult to keep up with all the HDMI/HDCP changes that occur regularly, and that...

    HDMI Content Metadata Settings?

    In your setup using the Lumagen and Sony 5000, you do not need to use this option (Transmit content type metadata), the Sony doesn't need the "hints," it will correctly switch between AR's when displaying the OSD and movie content. Not sure about the second question (I think I know the answer...

    Movies not added to collections!

    The typical reasons are: Owner didn't correctly add content to a collection (or it didn't work for some reason, perhaps network glitch). Player (or display) being used to display content is not capable of playing the movie you are looking for (i.e. M-class needed for HD content; Strato needed...

    Recommendations for a Projector Screen

    Only at trade shows, haven't sold, or used, their screens yet, but two integrator friends have, and they indicated the screens were very good, and at a lower cost than would be expected given the quality. Just from a general knowledge sense, I've never heard any negative comments about...
