    Do you have another HDMI input on the TV you could try?

    NBC Sports Network shutting down, sports content headed to USA Network

    I don’t think so because I don’t think Fox wants to have to deal with creating content for an entertainment cable network like USA anymore. I’m sure they wish FS1 performed better, but post Disney-acquisition Fox has a really trim and agile business and for broadcast TV the future is a lot of...

    NBC Sports Network shutting down, sports content headed to USA Network

    Media conglomerates gonna media conglomerate. Universal's film business is bleeding money so they hit their cable business. I doubt NBC Sports Network ever had remarkable ratings for much, it existed to propel viewers to NBC proper, and recently existed to propel viewers to Peacock. The pandemic...

    Recommend me a 55-65 inch TV

    Yeah I put on Winter Soldier the other night on my CX and one scene where they dipped to black was so dark the TV looked off. On a regular LCD that is backlight hell.

    iPhone 12

    The cable that comes with the phone is lighting to USB-C, but it will charge with the old lighting to USB cable too. I have had a Pro for about a week, right now it's a fast iPhone with a great screen and a great battery (to me, coming from an X that had a pretty degraded battery). I did get a...

    Spotify Alternatives

    One knock on YouTube is that it doesn’t work with Alexa. I use Apple because it’s easy and elegant on everything but I never use iTunes on a PC, if I did I probably would hate it. I pay for YouTube Premium so do technically have a subscription to their music service but the Alexa issue is too...

    iPhone 12

    I feel like the big losers in this are non MagSafe case makers. I really like the Jimmycase I have on my X, but went with a clear MagSafe case with a wallet for a Pacific Blue 12 Pro. The wallet price is really outrageous but it works so well with what I already do, popping out my license and...

    iPhone 12

    I held out on my X for 5G, usually I buy every other year. I‘ll grab a Pro, I don’t usually care much about the cameras as long as they’re pretty good but I possibly have a lead to do some video editing and being able to just grab 4K 60fps Dolby Vision video on a walk in New York with a phone...

    2020 AL Wild Card Round

    ABC will have 2pm games Thursday and Friday (if necessary, there need to be at least 2 series still going, ESPN will take 1 for primetime since ABC has the NBA Finals that night).

    AirPod Pros

    Yeah I did get both replaced pretty easily. Thanks!

    Recommend me a 55-65 inch TV

    Between all of them are improved processors, but what the processors are for is mainly 4K upscaling and sound from the TV’s speakers. Those may not be things you care a ton about (a 4K movie will look similar on all 4 and if you have a soundbar or a receiver you don’t care about the TV’s...

    Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman suspended for on-air homophobic epithet

    If he were to do that he'd probably position himself out of sportscasting forever. If he has friends with sports radio shows he should do a somber round of apologies and then lay low for a year or two. There is likely eventually work out there for him depending on how humble he is and how big a...

    Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman suspended for on-air homophobic epithet

    Yes and Brennaman is absurdly stupid to put his entire career on the line so he can say homophobic shit into a hot mic until his AD completely counts down to zero, especially given that the operator running the breaks is in another state (for Fox RSN’s it was Texas but I think they’ve moved).

    Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman suspended for on-air homophobic epithet

    Typically they are always left on during breaks but there’s technology in many sports production trucks that mutes everything, so it’s possible the truck brought it up early on purpose. I suspect Fox is cheap and didn’t buy this.

    Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman suspended for on-air homophobic epithet

    What’s bizarre is, he’s got a headset on, his mic is open to somebody, likely a few dozen people at least. He’s ok with all of them hearing this, he just didn’t want it broadcast.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I suspect Google/YouTube is intentionally lax on this, but with devices that are pinpointing location they can't let it slide. I got YTTV basically entirely for this purpose but a couple months ago paused it when sports were mostly in doubt and when it was demanding I update my home location and...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I lowered mine about $35 with better internet by going to the Altice box. Wouldn’t give the Altice box a good review, some quirks with net, it goes to sleep and a reboot (which it does on its own at least once a week) takes a good 10 minutes to restore everything.

    HDR Sucks

    I don’t think I’ve tried that one, have the same TV. I did monkey with settings and mess up HDR in the first week of owning this set and fixed with a factory reset, maybe give that a shot?
