    True meaning of Multimedia system. Rather keep it separate, but sometimes watch movies on PC, ones not burned to disc, MKV. Nice A/V Receiver with TV. Know there are so many different ways can do things between a PC and other equipment. Receiver is going to my Router along with TV for other uses.

    Love new technology, that UltraHD will be tempting.

    The only problem with most people getting a U HDTV, is they usually have all the settings wrong and every thing looks like a cartoon. I tweak mine using this calibration disk AVS HD 709 - Blu-ray & MP4 Calibration - AVS | Home Theater Discussions And Reviews. My LG has expert settings to set gray scale(10 point & 2 point) and Color Management to tweak the colors. Most people that come to visit say my TV looks drab, then I turn on the news that show something outside and ask them to compare the grass and trees on tv to the grass and trees outside, then they're impressed.

    I know what you mean, use to use a program from Sound & Vision years ago to set up TV and the A/V Receiver, device to calibrate sound too.
    Most receivers come with this mic now. Big on home theater setup before PC use.

    Sorry, I'm holding out for Holographic TV or something like the Headbands on Caprica. Take me to V-World.
