    what an upset weekend...49ers too now 8-1....

    Patriots, 49er's Seahawks , Packers ...hold the 8's

    Vikings, Saints, Ravens with 7's....

    NFC East seems to be Wild Card material at best...Cowboys looking like 9-7 season..maybe 8-8...people will still spend $500 for a bad seat, bad game..blah season again. At best a spoiler team in the PlayOffs knocking some better team out with a abnormally good day amongst the inconsistency.

    Oh well... the Radial JDI and JoeMeek VC3 gold label arrived, something more fun to do.

    Bought myself an early Christmas present - a 65 UHD TV (I was a good boy this year ).

    Like I really needed another thing to distract me from practicing the guitar.

    Man, the prices are so low i've been tempted to pick one up just for the upstairs, even though I don't need it!

    The fight at the end of the Steelers/ Browns game was wild. Let's hope they can get control of this problem quickly.

    Yeah, I didn’t need it either, lol. But I’m old and have so few things left to enjoy.

    Pretty ridiculous whacking some guy on the head with his own helmet. Not sure suspension for the rest of the year is enough. I’d vote for a lifetime ban.

    65" is huge, my brother has the 65 and its gigantic. Prices are so good these days I hear...

    I was kind of in the TV biz for a few years pre2005, when TI made the DLP technology HDTV's...it was a Haleys' Comet of a cool mems device, but there was no competing with LCD technology obviously. I think the DLP TV's were $12,000 then breakthroughs in mfg got it under $3k and sales took off but died...LCD was just better and cheaper and better reliability...so the big customers like Samsung and others went LCD and dropped the DLP tv lines. DLP was kind of like Mini-Disc or ADAT Tape was to Recording pre-DAW era .lol

    All I have now for audio is a soundbar....recently cut the cable, removed the DVD players/audio surround speakers, now its all Streaming and Netflix , AmazonPrime No Commericals!!...(and Free Digital TV "air" antenna for Football and Weather news). (gadwaful amount of commercials)

    ...98% of the time Streaming Netflix or Amazon, no commercials has ruined normal-tv for me. A person doesnt know how bad the bombardment of commercials is until you get away from it for a year or two...wow?

    I had a friend who had a DLP TV. Bulb kept burning out in it every couple of years and was like $300 or so to replace. He finally dumped it. These days you can get the whole TV for $300, lol.

    I also do a lot of streaming as well, but for regular tv I just use a DVR. Record the program and FF right thru the commercials. The only time I see commercials is during sports. Theoretically I could record the event and start watching it like a half hour late. You can FF the commercials and end up finishing about the same time the “live” game finishes. But I have friends and relatives who will text me during the game and spoil it - so I watch live... with commercials.

    exactly right.

    add some more the whole thing was magic, million mirrors moving, a spinning frkn color wheel of red,blue,green and a bulb..and HDTV and Cinema clarity.
    in the beginning of DLPTV only the Speilbergs and others could even afford them, the goal to reduce price and mass market was a large task, the big players of DLP TV were all betting on all the technologys so Sony, Samsung Mitsubishi etc.. eventually the market is driven overtime and $400 bulbs to replace wasn't going to fly for the WalMart and Best Buy folks...and the pictures were all so great, Plasma, LCD,LED,DLP, and others...
    I zipped out from all that when the Executive order from the customer (mainly Samsung) was to stop research on Quality and focus all resources on Cost Reduction of the parts...well that means one thing to me, offshoring the factory and luckily I ran into an old boss and he was looking for some horsepower for a more US permanent job, so that's when I jumped that ship. The cost alone didn't save DLP TV though due to the bulb issue and other overwhelming competition as you said frkn 65" for $300?!!!! no bulb $300 replacement needed ….some nontechnical people paid techs to install the bulb making it more expensive.

    Technologys are funny...I loved MiniDiscs personally, but that horse died too.

    I do the regular tv on dvr for the most part but i actually like the commercials so i can sit with a guitar in my hands and mute them while i play. It's the best way to get some playing time when i'm too tired to practice and i often come up with stuff that gets recorded on the laptop in the next commercial break!

    In the late 80's I was changing careers and had to work in a warehouse at night to supplement my income. I would move large appliances to be delivered the next day. Refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc. The hardest thing to move were the rear projection big screens, the came packed on their own pallets. Shitty shit if there ever was, if you weren't directly in front of the screen, it was a blurry mess. I'm guessing I could pick up Dachay2tnr's 65" with one hand.

    Next time a youngster tells you how good we had it in the old days, make them watch the sports on a 19" CRT, that'll put them in their place.

    we got to move these refrigerators, we got to move these color tv.eeeeeeee's....

    money-for nothing..
    I saw on a old docu showed that Sting actually sang the intro to that Dire Straits song. Weird story... I want my, i want my mtv...

    I dont really get the DVR thing, I guess for live tv. My brothers always complaining his is full. I just have streaming its always there to re-watch. Sure Im always a season behind, or a year behind, but Netflix and Amazon are making their own Originals so often there must be a BOOM Time in the film industry.... a lot of new jobs for actors I guess too. Netflix Making A Murderer and an ocean of docu's and indie stuff is amazingly good filming and the quality is as good as the big releases. Digital Cameras and Digital Editing I guess?

    I had the chance/awareness to buy Netflix stock at $8....I thought at the time it had peaked out, max'd out and would go no higher. I didnt buy, now its at $320...$290 range....if I could only time travel.
