    Thoughts?

    Wasnít the issue with the Apple TV. Itís with the oppo. Connect Apple TV direct to tv and no issues or go through a proper SSP like NAD M17 v2 for everything. No latency issues. If your tv has two hdmi inputs, one for Apple TV and one for oppo. Sound bar can help with clarity of voices.

    Totally agree itís something with interpretation with Oppo. Just seeing if I missed something.

    Gonna go the sound bar route since I really donít use the TV anymore in the listening room and if I donít do that may pull it and move the turntable and add reel to reel so I will be completely stupid.

    Thanks for the response!

    No problem. The new B&W Formation soundbar with sub is quite nice.

    Re: Cord Cutting Options

    Being out of the region for my sports teams (Cardinals and Blues) makes the cord cutting decision even easier. MLB and NHL packages bundled with Netflix and Amazon Prime makes for a plethora of good content.

    Might look into that HBO Max service when it debuts in May.

    Re: Cord Cutting Options

    Quick question. My home is Apple-centric. But if I primarily use Netflix and Amazon Prime and my 4K TV supports these apps, why add Apple TV to the mix?

    I would say if you want other apps like YouTube TV for local stations.

    If you rent a movie through the Apple store, your rental shows up in AppleTV and you can watch it using AppleTV. Also, you can use Netflix and Amazon Prime within AppleTV. Apple TV can also do voice searches.
    And since you have an Apple Centric home, through AppleTV you can watch all of your photos that reside in any of your Apple devices via Airplay.

    Re: Cord Cutting Options

    Here’s my bill. Around $275/mo. for TV, Internet and phone. Monthly charges for four boxes @ $5/mo. each and $14/mo. For a modem seem ridiculous too. Question. If I get rid of TV there is a $93/mo. charge for Internet. Will Xfinity try to jack up that price claiming I’m getting a package deal? Any advice? Does Internet price seem out of line? Would love to cut the cord!

    Thanks.

    PS: how do I get my attachment inline?
