I was in the car headed to a barbecue, but I got to catch some of the show while in commute. What a great conversation @Resolve, @metal571!

Very informative. I’m definitely catching the rebroadcast/stream later today. :+1:t4:

Started last night very late at around 1am watching the stream with headphones in bed and thought I fell asleep and missed something. So thankfully the recording was available this morning and I saw the whole thing in 1.5 speed :face_with_hand_over_mouth:
Maybe missed the last 5 minutes from stream
It was indeed very interesting

Great conversation, I really enjoyed hearing you guys discuss the technical aspects of reviewing.

@metal571, 24P is the ONLY way to watch something shot on film. :wink:

I’m assuming most can and do, but as far as streaming boxes and frames rates go, the Apple TV plays content at its native rate (or more accurately, at the rate the streaming service provides).

How it looks depends on your display’s technology, and the implemented settings (calibration).

Yes I think that is the only streaming box right now that’s capable of proper 24p output for some services such as Netflix. Nvidia Shield might be also

I thought maybe Roku did as well.

We have a few Apple TV’s and are happy with them.

I had a Roku and it does have the Auto-Adjust Display Refresh Rate, but that stopped working properly for the Netflix app towards the end of my ownership of it. Luckily my smart TV’s built-in apps always correctly set the refresh rate for the content being viewed. A lot of TVs now also detect a 24p stream embedded within a 60p signal from streaming boxes and can switch to displaying it in proper 24p, but my TV isn’t smart enough to do that, sadly. Those LG OLEDs can do this iirc, so probably getting one of those eventually.

LG OLED owner here. Prepare to never go back to any other type of display once you get one. The newer models are also excellent for gaming with native 120hz refresh and low input lag.

I can second @Xgatt’s statement.

Not only does it provide the deepest blacks possible (Self emissive allows this) but the refresh rates/lag time are very impressive.

I still use an Apple TV though. It’s just easier for us.

Another thing I picked up from Dan Clark actually, the brilliant dude he is, if you are using headphones and glasses much of the time depending on the headphones and the glasses you can actually just let the ear pieces rest on top of the pads and still use them and you don’t effect the seal at all. Obviously this is dependent case by case but I am able to do it great with my AEON2C and Ananda’s with my Rayban Glasses with zero issues. @Resolve
